I’m glad he’s finally at rest. RIP General.
May you rest in peace with your hero warrior friends now.
May you see Israel triumph!
Why do I suspect that Obummer won’t be at Sharon’s funeral (and taking selfies). Given Uncle Joe has been around a while, he may get sent to attend; however, I’m not holding my brief given how this admin has handled our relationship with Israel. Bebe said Pres GW Bush was the best friend Israel ever had - - perhaps he’ll attend.
President George w. Bush.
The last American president
I hope Brobama stay away.
A hero of Arab-Israeli conflicts who ultimately traded land for Taqiyya. RIP.
We we see a ‘Mandela like displaying of grief’ by the left and their useful idiots in the Media???
Amen. May God continue to protect & bless Israel.
Agree! Laura Bush, the last classy First Lady.
And, I do as well.
Jesus come soon.
May peace be upon him
and upon all Israel.
There IS that prophecy by that one rabbi...
I’m sorry, but Bush was no last American president, that would be Reagan in my opinion. Bush did a lot of terrible things to the US as well, which is partly why the US is in the dilemma it is in today.
US needs another Calvin Coolidge.
I think Sharon was a good man, and it’s sad to see him go. He was suffering though, so it’s also a good thing. I hope he inspired some young men to stand strong and do right by their country.
RIP Ariel Sharon.
RIP Ariel Sharon, you were a human being, flawed sometimes, but with great love for your nation, your people, and God almighty!!! You will be ranked along with Israel’s other great Generals and Leaders, Moses, David, Joshua, Gideon, Abraham, etc. A son of the Lord has returned home to the father of all men, to rest in peace for eternity is God’s heaven.
“This generation shall not all pass away before all these things are fulfilled.”
(Meaning, as I understand it, the generation that sees the re-birth of Israel as a country among the nations. That was 1948. I don’t they meant “to the last man,” but I think they meant in bulk, or in the main. Most. We’re clearly there, in that season...”
Thank you. This is soooooo true. Especially after the marxist is done in he white house
He loved his wife. When she died he married her sister.
That’s the first thing I thought of.
He died 8 years ago. I’m glad they have stopped torturing him. I’m afraid for Israel - they need a new generation of warriers with spines to rise up after Netanyahu - but unfortunately they are going the way of the US - metrosexuals with no morals or spine....
Good job Ari, may God welcome you.
During the fighting he was ordered to retreat but never received the message due to his radio having failed. That was what kept him in the front lines for days on end.
Finally, he could tolerate it no more and with every last ounce of strength crawled away in search of water, food. He finally happened upon a small pool of blood having accumulated from his now dead fellow soldiers after draining downhill and in which he dived into quenching his thirst and in the process somehow managing to survive.
And then, in telling the reporter the harrowing story of how against all odds he managed to survive said, "And now my enemies will say, I drink blood, too."
It is a Jewish religious law, tradition to marry your wife’s sister in the aftermath of your wife’s death.
Rest in Peace, Sir!
When will the flags be directed to fly at half staff as with Mandela?
Now here’s a funeral Cruz should really attend.
While he was a great American & a great President, Reagan gave us George HW Bush and the 1986 amnesty.
And you can bet that our flag won’t be lowered to half staff for 10 days for Ariel Sharon as it wasn’t for Margaret Thatcher. That tells me everything I need to know about Obama.
..........I dis-agree! That Bro will not miss a chance to take a very long ride on AF1 and play the bigshot all the time not having a clue as to the depths of HATRED for his sorry ass among tens of millions of Americans.
Barukh atah Adonai Eloheinu melekh ha’olam, dayan ha-emet.
Prayers for Israel.

Statement by the President on the Passing of Ariel Sharon
On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to the family of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and to the people of Israel on the loss of a leader who dedicated his life to the State of Israel. We reaffirm our unshakable commitment to Israels security and our appreciation for the enduring friendship between our two countries and our two peoples. We continue to strive for lasting peace and security for the people of Israel, including through our commitment to the goal of two states living side-by-side in peace and security. As Israel says goodbye to Prime Minister Sharon, we join with the Israeli people in honoring his commitment to his country.
As a general and defense minister, he was a George S. Patton all the way.
In the Yom Kippur War (1973) he cut right through the middle of the Egyptian attack and cut off their army on the southern flank.
His tanks could have gone all the way to Cairo.
In the early 80’s he masterminded the offensive into Lebanon that cornered Arafat and his PLO terrorists on the Beirut waterfront.
Unfortunately, Ronald Reagan, yes Ronald Reagan, wouldn’t let him finish the job. Dan Rather was showing too many civilian casualties on the evening news.
The way things are going in Israel, I would expect Sharon to be turning over once he reaches his grave.
MAN he was such bad****
Great leader and general.
I doubt Obama be to funeral reason is Ariel is Jew you know Obama don’t get along with jew
He may send Jimmy Carter to spite Sharon family
May he rest in peace and may God comfort his family and watch over Israel.
Who are you going to believe? This letter or your own lying eyes and ears? Sincerely, B and M
A warrior’s rest, well-earned .. RIP
I did not expect much in his statement, and my hopes were fulfilled. Compare it to the Mandela statement, which drones on and on. The Sharon statement is the bare minimum the Regime could have said.
RIP Mr. Sharon. Condolences to your family and the people of Israel.
That’s true, I’m going with Calvin Coolidge then heh.
So....will flags be lowered to half staff?
Of course not. They would only be lowered to half staff during this horrible jacka$$'s RULE for the likes of Castro, Hugo Chavez or a big muslim leader. I still don't understand why they weren't lowered for Kim Jung Ill.
RIP ARIEL SHARON..Israel will miss him forever.
I think it’s best Obama NOT be there.
