1. Right u are
DM ,   Herzelia, Israel   (01.05.06)
U are so right. He was the only one with the guts to get us out of Gaza. This u have to admit either way - even if u were for or against disengagement. His influence on Israel is immense. I think we must all respect him for the courage and "out of the box" thinking he has shown throughout the years
2. Another excellent article from Yair Lapid
Kate ,   London   (01.05.06)
3. A Fair Analysis
Hook ,   Toronto, Canada   (01.05.06)
I'm not an Israeli, so I'm not entitled to judge his decision with respect to Gaza, but I think it's fair to say that he has few if any, equals. He was a great and dynamic military leader, and he certainly is an outstanding politician. Love him or hate him, he's left his permanent mark on Israel. I hope he recovers, fast, even if it's only to allow him to enjoy a long retirement. I suspect that Israelis will still remember him well, 100 years from today. For better or worse,he's already made his mark in history.
4. FOR DELIVERANCE FROM THIS TYRANT

5. Well done!
Ben F ,   Chicago   (01.05.06)
Yair gets this right. We need to keep praying. For Arik, and us all.
6. Sharon has disengaged from himself!
Tomer ,   Netanya   (01.05.06)
This is what happens when you order the ethnic cleansing of Jews from their Homeland.
7. Sharon was a thief, a liar and a cheat
Dudu ,   Kfar Sava   (01.05.06)

10. To Dudu in Kfar Sava
Hook ,   Toronto, Canada   (01.05.06)
Dudu, all politicians are thieves liars and cheaters. However, like Sharon or hate him, he was still the elected prime minister. I think my prime minister is a thief liar, cheater, and worse, but I don't wish for his death. I just want him and his allies, thrown out of office in the next election.

ely ,   usa   (01.05.06)

13. Lapid for Prayer ? ? ?
JM ,   Errat, Israel   (01.06.06)
The ultimate anti-religous politician, the man who refuses to sit with religous people suddenly is calling for prayer....? He hates his religous brothers but wants prayer for Sharon?
14. To Hook: But Canadian PM is not an ethnic cleanser
Dudu ,   Kfar Sava   (01.06.06)
15. The last Good Night!
Buster ,   Sydney, Australia   (01.06.06)
Whether a prince or a pauper, in time we will all face death and have to give account of what we have done (good or bad) whilst in the flesh. Sharon's deeds brought joy to some and sorrow to other, mans condamnation or praise of Sharon has little worth. Sharon will one day stand before The Judge of judges and have to give account for this life.
16. To Dudu (
Hook ,   Toronto, Canada   (01.06.06)
17. Reply to Dudu (# 14)
Hook ,   Toronto, Canada   (01.06.06)
Dudu., I understand your hostility and hate. I, too, disagreed with many of his policies, but as I'm a Canadian, I have no right to prescribe how Israelis ought to feel about them. At this time (G. Gordon Liddy is reporting on radio that Sharon is brain dead), I think only of the fact that Sharon was a Jew, an Israeli, and a dynamic leader, regardless of his failings. If you're religious, please say a prayer for him , simply because he may be dead.
18. Dudu
Jane   (01.07.06)
You know that in English Dudu means crap. I guess you live up to your name.
19. Prayers for the Righteous
DEWITT GLENN ,   ANDERSON SC, USA   (01.07.06)
A great man is worthy of God's Grace and I being a recovering stroke victim know that God is standing by Sharon's side during this sickness and Jesus will fix it for him trust in God he is our regulator
20. Sharon
NYC Girl   (01.07.06)
People can say what they want about his political decisions, but he's still a man who devoted his entire life to fighting for Israel...which is a lot more than some of the religious fanatics, Christians and Jews alike, have done.
21. TO DUDE
PILPELET ,   H ISRAEL   (01.07.06)
