Sharon, The Hawk Who Morphed Into a Dove

My Pre-Shabbos Rant:

Isn't it amazing how compassionate Western media has been portraying Ariel Sharon this week? One year ago, that same media was calling him a war criminal, a murder, and a war monger. And today how do they see him? They now refer to him as Israel's "grandfather", a man of peace, and a war hero. What a difference a year can make. Kill terrorists your whole life and you're called a criminal, but expel thousands of Jews from their homes but once and you become an overnight global sensation.

A pretty revealing lesson, no?

Shabbat Shalom to All

I don't recall U.S. Media saying any such thing... But then I don't pay attention to U.S. "Mainstream" (whatever that means) Media, despite working in television-- CBS affiliate, no less.

As for myself. I am a Christian. My G-d calls the Jews, the House of Israel, HIS people. The United States, and every other nation on the face of the earth, condemns Israel at their peril.

I'm commanded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Tell me, How can I honestly pray for the peace of Jerusalem if I don't pray for her people as well?

I don't know what is to be Jewish, or what it is to be beset by enemies on all sides, but I know we worship the same G-d, whether you agree with me on that or not.

In regard to President Bush, I was particularly alarmed by his statement last year that Israel should pull back to pre 1949(?) borders. A very dangerous statement to make.

I am amazed at the resillience of the Israeli people, though I shouldn't be. No enemy will ever destroy Israel... Not with G-d as protector.

My prayers are still with Israel and Ariel Sharon.

The media is quick to forget, forgive, or just lie so they can sell papers. I too was suprised that the BBC have tippexed their scripts and the man they accussed of massacres in Lebanon is now a man of peace.

Maybe what they say is true - everyone loves the sufferer.

very true.

IfYouWillIt:

Maybe so. I think the media just likes to see a Jew who follows world opinion with no regard for their own. If Jews won't be sheep, then they will have nothing to do with us. Sad.
