Sharon is Incapacitated, in a Medically Induced Coma
Ariel Sharon is on an operating table, fighting for his life. From YNet News:
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is suffering from a massive brain hemorrhage and is undergoing major surgery, Hadassah Ein Kerem Deputy Director Shmuel Shapira announced Wednesday night.A massive brain hemorrhage in a 77 year old, overweight widower looks bad indeed. It's sad to think about but he may not make it. Please keep Ariel Sharon in your thoughts and prayers.
Senior health officials said Sharon's condition was life-threatening.
Senior officials at the Prime Minister's Office said "the situation is
difficult. We are praying the internal bleeding Sharon is suffering can be stopped. We're trying to maintain out optimism but the situation is not looking good."
One of the prime minister's aides told Ynet: "The situation is not good. We're tense. It isn't easy facing this situation. We're concerned."
If, God forbid, Sharon passes on watch for footage of Palestinian celebrations. Massive, joyous, Mardi Gras-style spontaneous celebrations. Then watch the official PA reaction of forced restraint and sobriety. Then, right behind that footage, watch the Palestinian apologists crawl out of the woodwork to say how the average Palestinian is not really happy that their partner in the Peace Process has died, that it is un-Islamic to celebrate a death with sweets and shouting and firing automatic weapons into the air. It's all as inevitable as it is pathetic.
