In 2000 as soon as Sharon came to power, he "provoked" the Pals with a walk on the Temple Mount with a 1000 plainclothes police: the Pals predictably, turned violent, Sharon marched into the West bank, destroyed 1 Bill USD worth of Pal Propertyy mostly donated by the EU - etc. etc. And Bush2 told Sharon to get out,: he didn't. Christians flooded the WH with mail supporting G_d's donation of Judea and Samaria, and Gaza won to Israel by Samson's sacrifice. Bush2 - retracted everything: saying Sharon was a 'man of Peace.' ---Look what happened. Sharon forcibly evicted Jews from Gaza. And G_d punished Sharon by putting him in a perpetual coma. Will N'yahu repeat Sharon's errors? Will N'yahu too suffer the fate of Sharon and Terry Schiavo?-----Moral: Beware of US Presidents when they speak kindly!
