|Ariel Sharon is an incredible leader. To quote Moby Schtick, “Like a lot of Jews, I have both loved and hated Sharon's policies over the past few years.” Although Stevin and I are at opposite points on what we have loved/hated over the last several years no one can deny that he works hard at leadership. With an every sensitive ear to the complicated opinions of the Israeli people he has managed to balance atop that ball. When he was elected, the citizens were looking for a tough hawkish leader. In recent years they looked for someone to have a broader view. I prefer his more recent actions to the earlier ones. Stevin prefers the earlier actions to his recent ones.|
According to the Jerusalem Post:
At 5:35 p.m., Professor Shlomo Mor-Yosef, director general of Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, briefed the press outside of the emergency room. Mor-Yosef prefaced his remarks by saying that although Hadassah as an institution honors the Sabbath, the gravity of Sharon's situation necessitated constant updates.
Prime Minister Sharon, you are in all our prayers.
