After Sharon’s Quiet Death, a Thunderclap of Reactions

The man known as "The Bulldozer" in Israel was "The Butcher" among its enemies

The death of Ariel Sharon may have been long presaged — first by the brain damage that left him in a coma for eight years, and in the final week by bulletins from the Tel Aviv area hospital where he finally succumbed on Saturday afternoon. But he did not go quietly.

Reactions to his passing summoned the extraordinary extremes of perception that marked Sharon’s long and very public life. He was hailed as a military hero by Israeli leaders, who in the first hours after his passing poured out gratitude for the role he played in keeping them safe — including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who called Sharon “first and foremost a brave warrior and a great general,” and “one of the greatest commanders the Israel Defense Force has seen.”

But others remembered him as the man at the other end of the gun. “I feel like stepping out of the car right this second, and dancing in the street. I feel like ululating,”says Amal Al-Raa’i 46, a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon, after hearing the news of his death. Al-Raa’i witnessed the massacres of hundreds of fellow refugees at the Sabra and Shatila camp in 1982 by Christian militiamen allied to Israel. Sharon commanded the troops that stood by as the killings took place, which led to his removal as minister of defense. “But we were hoping he would suffer much more than that before his last breath because he made us suffer,” Al-Raa’i adds. “May God punish him for his sins.”

And so it went. The man known as “The Bulldozer” in Israel was “The Butcher” among its enemies.

Israeli minister of justice Tzipi Livni, who formed the Kadima party with Sharon and served as his minister of justice, spoke of her love for “Arik,” the nickname by which Sharon was long known among Israelis. “In that large body of his beat a Jewish soul that cared for the Jewish people around the world,” Livni said in a statement. “He became the large father of a large nation. A father that gave his son a sense of security.”

Added Ehud Olmert, who succeeded him as prime minister when Sharon was felled by a series of strokes, “He stood at the front of the firing line where Israel’s fate was determined all his life. Arik’s life was fascinating, exceptional, unique, soaked with bravery, human warmth, vision, and leadership at the critical moments when Israel needed these traits.”

Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch called it “a shame that Sharon has gone to his grave without facing justice for his role in Sabra and Shatila and other abuses. His passing is another grim reminder that years of virtual impunity for rights abuses have done nothing to bring Israeli-Palestinian peace any closer.”

The White House issued a statement that underscored once again Washington’s commitment to Israel’s security, but otherwise was marked by respectful restraint. “As Israel says goodbye to Prime Minister Sharon, we join with the Israeli people in honoring his commitment to his country,” President Obama said.

But Former President George W. Bush, called him “a warrior for the ages.” And  Netanyahu’s encomium nodded to both the glory and the controversy embedded in Sharon’s military career. After listing the four wars in which Sharon commanded troops, including Israel’s 1948 war for independence, Netanyahu noted that, “in between, he founded Unit 101 and promoted the concept of taking the initiative and payback in the war against terror that became part and parcel of Israeli policy.”  Unit 101 was a commando unit created to carry out retribution for Palestinian attacks; the unit was responsible for what some historians call the Qibya massacre, where 42 Palestinians were killed in October 1953 in what is today the West Bank.

As prime minister, from 2001 until he was stricken in 2006, Sharon confounded expectations, unilaterally withdrawing Jewish settlers and troops from the Gaza Strip and laying plans, according to former aides, to draw a boundary with the West Bank. “If Sharon wouldn’t have died, we could have had peace with the Palestinians by now,” said Haim Ramon, a former lawmaker who helped Sharon found the center-right Kadima party, following the uproar in Likud that followed the Gaza move. “He wanted to create a Palestinian state,” Ramon told Israel Radio, “and if there’s anyone who could make peace with the Palestinians it’s Sharon.”

The assertion will be debated by historians, as well as policy experts who have studied the Palestinian-Israeli conflict for generations. But in the immediate aftermath of Sharon’s death, nuanced appraisals appeared overwhelmed by the polarization that had followed much of his life. On Twitter, the contrasts cascaded and caromed down the feed an hour after his death was made official:

“Regarding Ariel Sharon, one should always speak good of the dead. He’s dead. Good.”

“Sharon, Israel loves you.”

“Ariel Sharon went to hell finally.”

“Not enough people understand how significant Sharon was for the revival and defense of the state of Israel.”

Sharon’s coffin will be on display at the Knesset on Sunday, where members of the public will be able to pay their respects. On Monday an official funeral ceremony is also expected to take place at the Knesset.  Burial will be Monday afternoon in a private ceremony on Sharon’s ranch bordering the Negev Desert.

Ariel Sharon impersonated since 1975 by imposter who died in 2006 - exposed worldwide first

"Sharon" and Fidel Castro "live" beyond death

Fidel Castro had his life extended, impersonated after his natural death by Liam Neeson.

Same with Ariel Sharon, with one minor and a MAJOR difference:

- no actor was needed to impersonate "Sharon" after his death, during the 8 years he was supposedly in coma.

- the quotes around Sharon already tell what the MAJOR difference is: Sharon, unlike Castro a RESISTER, was murdered and replaced by an imposter in 1975.


Media fulfilling the fourth commandment of illuminati religion, shows REAL Sharon 1966 and imposter 1982 in the same page (1).


Ariel Sharon, carbon copy of Nelson Mandela

Template:

1. Resister murdered.

2. Replaced by imposter.

3. Imposter starts playing head of state.


When were steps 1, 2 and 3 applied to Mandela and Sharon.

1: Mandela 1966, Sharon 1975

2: Mandela 1989 by Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman, Sharon 1975 by a so far unidentified actor.

3: Mandela as president 1994, Sharon as prime minister 2001.


Differences about who is the imposter, when did he step on stage or is still alive or not

Sharon and Mandela are carbon copies from the same template. These differences are only details:

- imposter Sharon not played by Hollyood actor unlike Mandela.

- it took 22 years to replace Mandela while Sharon was replaced within a year.

- imposter playing Mandela still alive at the time of the "funeral", in fact sitting as Kofi Annan (also played by Morgan Freeman) next to the spiritual master of ceremonies, "archbishop" Desmond Tutu.

So the butcher of Sabra and Chatila is dead. Maybe the 2000 palestinian men, women and children massacred under his control can now rest in peace. Oh yes, he was in control...the Israeli soldiers, under his direct orders, prevented anyone one leaving the camps even when the refugees begged to escape the massacres - the IDF  turned them back to face their death. Amazing how the US president can bestow praise on this Monster whilst the same time Human rights watch organisation today stated ' Ariel Sharon died without facing justice for his role in the massacres of hundreds and perhaps thousands of civilians by Christian militias in the Sabra and Shatilla refugee camps in Lebanon in 1982. The killings constituted war crimes and crimes against humanity.'   Rot in hell Sharon.

This man was Palestine's Hitler, one example of his long career includes the following:

The Sabra and Shatila massacre was the slaughter of between 762 and 3,500 civilians, mostly Palestinians and Lebanese Shiites, by a Lebanese Christian militia in the Sabra neighborhood and the adjacent Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon from approximately 6:00 pm 16 September to 8:00 am 18 September 1982.

In 1983, a UN commission chaired by Sean MacBride concluded that Israel bore responsibility for the violence. In 1983, the Israeli Kahan Commission, appointed to investigate the incident, found that Israeli military personnel, aware that a massacre was in progress, had failed to take serious steps to stop it. Thus Israel was indirectly responsible, while Ariel Sharon, then Defense Minister, bore personal responsibility "for ignoring the danger of bloodshed and revenge", forcing him to resign.

Israel will need many more brave Ariel Sharons before the juggernaut of Islam is ridden from the world. Islam will afflict and fight against Israel until Christ crushes it upon His return.......

Zechariah 14 .........

............The Day of the Lord.............

14 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming,
And your spoil will be divided in your midst.
2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled,
And the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity,
But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then the Lord will go forth
And fight against those nations,
As He fights in the day of battle.
4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,
Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
From east to west,
Making a very large valley;
Half of the mountain shall move toward the north
And half of it toward the south.
5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley,
For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal.
Yes, you shall flee
As you fled from the earthquake
In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.

Thus the Lord my God will come,
And all the saints with You.

6 It shall come to pass in that day
That there will be no light;
The lights will diminish.
7 It shall be one day
Which is known to the Lord—
Neither day nor night.
But at evening time it shall happen
That it will be light.

8 And in that day it shall be
That living waters shall flow from Jerusalem,
Half of them toward the eastern sea
And half of them toward the western sea;
In both summer and winter it shall occur.
9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth.
In that day it shall be—
“The Lord is one,”
And His name one.

10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.

11 The people shall dwell in it;
And no longer shall there be utter destruction,
But Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem:

Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet,
Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets,
And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

13 It shall come to pass in that day
That a great panic from the Lord will be among them.
Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor,
And raise his hand against his neighbor’s hand;
14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem.
And the wealth of all the surrounding nations
Shall be gathered together:
Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance.

@danielwhite   The butchers of Sabra and Shatila are Arabs.  Arabs killed by Arabs.  They do that all the time.   Civil wars all over the Arab world.

@bararachod The same way the Nazis used to salute their beloved leader. Don't forget to extend your right arm.

@aysar2023   Sabra and Shatila:  Arabs were killing each other in Lebanon before Israel invaded (to stop the PLO from firing on Israel) and kept killing each other after Israel left.  Arabs killed by Arabs, nothing to do with Israel.  Arabs kill each other (and minorities) all over the judenrein (from where 800,000 Jews were kicked out, but are not living in refugee camps or blowing themselves) Arab world.  Arabs killed 300,000 black Christians in Darfur, Arabs even kill their own daughters and sisters for "honour".

@CrossWinds do you know what I do with the pages of your book? They have the same comfort as toilet paper.

If you want to be a zionist bootlicker, move there. 

You religious people are gullible by nature. And you seem to have no concept of how these zio-nazis have manipulated you according to what you believe in. Have you ever researched "who" founded modern Israel?


Atheistic white Jewish supremacists from Europe. "Zionists" 


Moses doesn't know these people...
