After a long stroke related coma, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has passed away.
Much will be written about Sharon, but he will likely be most remembered for exposing the Palestinian lack of commitment to peace simply by visiting a Jewish holy site that Islamists insist should be a Jew-free zone. The offense of his mere Jewish presence was enough to enrage Palestinian Islamists, causing them to launch the 2nd intifada and murdering 100’s of Jews.
The Temple Mount is the holiest site for the Jewish faith. Islamists have claimed it for themselves and have openly declared their desire to drive the Jews into the sea for the crime of not accepting the Sharia.
This was in stark contrast to Sharon’s unprecedented demonstration of Israel’s commitment to peace by unilaterally forcibly removing all Jews from the Gaza strip, per Muslim demands – which resulted in more missile attacks on Israel.
