Radical Cleric Pat Robertson blamed Sharon stroke on policy of ‘dividing God’s land’

(via Media Matters)

I have said last year that Israel was entering into the most dangerous period of its entire existence as a nation. That is intensifying this year with the loss of Sharon. Sharon was personally a very likeable person. I am sad to see him in this condition. But I think we need to look at the Bible and the Book of Joel. The prophet Joel makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who, quote, “divide my land.” God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible, he says, “This is my land.” And for any prime minister of Israel who decides he going carve it up and give it away, God says, “No. This is mine.” And the same thing — I had a wonderful meeting with Yitzhak Rabin in 1974. He was tragically assassinated, and it was terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless, he was dead. And now Ariel Sharon, who was again a very likeable person, a delightful person to be with. I prayed with him personally. But here he is at the point of death. He was dividing God’s land, and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations or United States of America. God said, “This land belongs to me, you better leave it alone.”
— Pat Robertson (From the January 5, 2006 edition of CBN’s The 700 Club)

Hmmm — using his logic, if Pat Robertson gets gravely ill, it’s a sure sign of God’s displeasure with him.

  1. I hope you don’t consider my comment as an unwarranted intrusion. After perusing your blog, namely, “yet another website”, I believe I can reasonably suppose both you and readers would welcome news of opposition to your “smirking chimp”, my “dum’ya botch”. In plainer terms, I want to run for Representative for Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District on a platform calling for the impeachment of President George Walker Bush.

    Ah, before you click on any of the enclosed hyperlinks, please read the entirely of my comment. For example, the three planks I nailed together in my platform out to get me elected. “impeach bush” is the first plank. The second is “impeach bush”. The third is like the second, “impeach bush”.

    To continue, the first hyperlink below leads to the opening salvo of my campaign.


    As for the second hyperlink, it leads to evidence that my candidacy is about more than opposition solely for the sake of opposition.
