1. Ariel Sharon is NOT unconscious. His son Omri said his Abba
watches nature programs on TV and is responsive to questions, replying with a squeeze to the hand. What is this nonsense about Ariel Sharon being unconscious coming from?
2. Skin problem
My husband just told me he heard on the radio that it's some kind of skin problem - and he is holding the press conference to dispel rumors that this problem in no way interferes with his being able to function.
Bat Yam, Israel
3. What about his mental health?
Is there such a thing as "moral health"???
If there is, he is terminally ill.
4. better for him and for us if he resigns.
5. #3 - Terry - Some compassion please
Don't be an animal! When people are sick the least we can do is show some human compassion. Obviously you have got none!
6. How about the health of our security?

7. I'M SORRY TO HEAR.................................
THAT HE HAS ANY HEALTH ,TO BRIEF US ON !
I'M STILL WAITING TO UNDERSTAND THE OUTCOME OF HANNAH SOFER'S HEALTH !
YES I SAID IT !
NO I DON'T GIVE A DANG WHAT YOU THINK OF MY COMMENTS,AND I SPEAK FOR THOUSANDS (ATLEAST) SO ,THE ONLY ISSUE IS WILL YOU PUBLISH THIS OR "COP OUT" ?
8. #5 - 90% of us are wishing and praying that he'll step down!
The guy is a disaster and the country is more important than him.
His is arrogant with a skin thicker than that of a rhinoceros.
How dare he say that he wants to assure the public that he won't step down?!
90% of the public want him gone NOW!
9. That's what happens...
...when you bend over for Abbas

11. I agree with #5
No matter what we think of him as Prime Minister, he is a human being and fellow Jew and deserves our compassion. Refua shlema!
Bat Yam, Israel
12. refuah shlema
Yes, mt Olmert, we wish you full recovery. But for your own health, and that of Israel,please step down and take time aside form politics, so you can beat the illness, and we can have new leadership! :)
13. I wish him a speedy recovery far from political life
so he can rest ,
14. Eric - #5
Sorry friend, I have as much compassion for that jerk Olmert as he has for Israel - NONE. May G-d forgive me, my only problem with his illness is he can't spread it to the rest of the government.

15. So????!!!! Don't Care................
16. get well soon. get out now.
17. He should not have his prostate removed since that usually
results in urinary incontenence and impotence. I would suggest he take a week off from work and go to the Whitaker Wellness Center in Newport Beach, California, for the latest alternative treatments for prostate cancer instead of surgery. Most men die of old age before they die of prostate cancer. Also, he should elevate tissue oxygen levels with 2 cc of Vitamin O Stabilized liquid oxygen in a cup of filtered water twice daily and take a cayenne pepper capsule daily. Both of those simple remedies kill prostate cancer cells without the devastating consequences of chemotherapy or surgery. He should also chelate out heavy metals and radiation from the body with RepairACell with NT factor tablets and EDTA Detoxamin rectal suppositories. The tablets pull the toxic heavy metals and radation out of the cells and repair the cells. The suppositories pull the toxic heavy metals out of the blood stream. Low tissue oxygen levels is a factor in cancer, as is toxic heavy metals, and liver or intestinal flukes, as well as the cancer virus. Knock enough legs out from under the cancer, and the virus cannot do much. He should read Dr. Hulda Clark's book, the Cure for Cancer which goes into some of these things, and more.
I am not happy with Olmert as Prime Minister, but I'm afraid that we'll get someone even worse than him.
19. Avrohom - Ehud
Once again Avrohom's comments are on the mark. I wonder how many readers even know that he is referring ot the little girl that Olmerts ever-gratuitously-speeding motorcade ran down and seriously injured. Does anyone care? Does olmert care? No it has been completely hushed up but the PMO and the media. We wish the PM well far far away from the PM's office.

20. Sharon not unconscious?
Perhaps he can becoem PM, and simply be briefed in his hospital room, with 1 squeeze meaning yes,a nd 2 meaning NO. In any case, it would be a better system of givernment than what is here today.
21. #5 Eric - Some compassion?
First off, I wrote the comment before the announcement that he had prostate cancer.
Nonetheless, Olmert is a public official. He is not my friend or relative. His personal health status is not a matter of compassion - his performance as PM is the only criteria of any importance. I am obliged to judge him objectively, coldly, & according to evidence.
I could make an emotional appeal as well - where is his compassion for the residents of Sderot? But that is only a part of the issue.
Here we have a PM who has no mandate. His policies are judged by the vast majority of voters to be wrong. His handling of a war has been severely criticised. He is under investigation for several criminal acts. In the opinion of many, his appointments of cabinet ministers betrays poor judgement.
And now he has a serious illness which may further affect his functioning. Yet, in what might charitably be called irresponsibility, he will not resign.
By entering the public arena, by assuming a responsibility for our welfare & security, he loses his right to our compassion - only his performance counts.
Should he do the responsible thing & resign & re-enter private life, only then does he have a right to our compassion.
22. Terry #21: I believe you are right
Beyond that -- speaking of compassion -- should Mr. Olmert and Mr. Bush be successful at Annapolis, I fear thousands of innocent Jewish lives will be at risk.
No question in my mind, there are blood-thirsty savages waiting to take possession of vital and strategic land Mr. Olmert wants to give them.
They will bide their time and fall on the Jews with a bloody vengeance.
One would think Mr. Olmert might consider the bloody implications before making all these statements that he is willing to surrender precious land to Isreal's dedicated enemies.
23. # 10 very brave of you while you live in a Muslim Country.
24. # 14 be very carefull what you wish for
25. Olmert i wish you a speedy recovery, but not
while your serving me and the rest of the country. Just as the rest of us when we get sick step down or are forced to step down when health matters creep into our lives so should you. When you recover you will have a fair chance to return if the Israeli public so wishs. For your sake and the country step aside get the treatment you require. Life is short.
26. I wouldn't wish any form of cancer on another
even if he is my sworn enemy. Neither should anyone else.
27. #1 This weirdo claims that Sharon is sitting and watching TV
and watching the city he ethnic cleaned from Jews, filled with terrorists. By now he has surely repented and should be given his seat in the knesset back from Olmert before they'll both go into unconsciousness.
Joseph P. ,
28. #26 - Why? He is a menace to Israel?
sorry but your post is just sophistry!
Like sending a get well card to someone that you don't like.
Olmert is a corrupt politician that puts himself above the country.
If he has to step down then there will be a carnival atmosphere in Israel.
Not because of his ill health but because more than 90% don't want him and he doesn't listen.
29. the main thing is to step down already
best wishes for medical problems, but should have resigned a long time ago.
30. Rivkah # 17
RIvkah where did you go to med school? What gives you the right to give medical advice on this forum? Your methods are sientifically unproven, there is a standard method of treatment and people with any cancer should listen to their doctors.Rivkale, do you have the guts to take the responsibility for some poor person's life who is actually taking your advice seriously?
Dear readers please listen to you doctors medical advice and stay away from followers of pseudosceince.
P.S. Best wishes and full and speedy recovery to Mr.Olmert every sick person deserves to be cured. (Although I don't like his managment style)
