President Obama expressed sorrow Saturday about the death of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, joining other United States and world leaders in commenting on the life and passing of 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,” the president said. “We reaffirm our unshakable commitment to Israel’s security and our appreciation for the enduring friendship between our two countries and our two peoples.”
Me:oh that’s funny Obama reaffirms their unshakable commitment to isreal’s security and what’s stranger is that he considers Arial a hero ,to isrealians but did he forget that he killed Palestinians and Lebanese and other innocent Arab citizens on the expense of this delusional and not ever lasting dream.
Sharon was “a brave soldier and a daring leader who loved his nation and his nation loved him,” said President of the State of Israel Shimon Peres, a longtime friend and rival. “He was one of Israel’s great protectors and most important architects, who knew no fear and certainly never feared vision.”
Sharon died at Tel Hashomer hospital just outside Tel Aviv, where his family had gathered at his bedside over the past several days as his vital organs reportedly deteriorated.
“Ariel Sharon’s journey was Israel’s journey,” Secretary of State John Kerry said. “The dream of Israel was the cause of his life, and he risked it all to live that dream. … During his years in politics, it is no secret that there were times the United States had differences with him. But whether you agreed or disagreed with his positions … you admired the man who was determined to ensure the security and survival of the Jewish State.”
Me :No wonder why Isreal is america’s big dog
oh sorry i mean America is isreal’s big dog and protector.
“Laura and I join our friends in Israel and around the world in mourning the loss,” said former President George W. Bush, commenting for himself and his wife. “He was a warrior for the ages and a partner in seeking security for the Holy Land and a better, peaceful Middle East.”
peaceful middle East ??!
“He wanted to erase the Palestinian people from the map,” said Tawfik Tirawi, who served as Palestinian intelligence chief when Sharon was prime minister a decade ago. “He wanted to kill us, but at the end of the day, Sharon is dead and the Palestinian people are alive.”
Finally something makes sense.
On the other hand,Palestinians at the refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh in Lebanon have celebrated the death of Israel’s former prime minister, Ariel Sharon.
Palestinian refugees fired into the air on Saturday in celebration over Sharon’s death.
Ain al-Hilweh camp, located in southern Lebanon, houses some 70,000 Palestinians.
Also in Shatila refugee camp in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, Palestinians handed out sweets after hearing the news.
And not to forget ,Sharon, known to many Palestinians as The Butcher.
In Gaza, some Palestinians also handed out sweets to passersby and motorists while some others stepped on his photos.
So here in 2014 a new world criminal is dead, but not to forget an important message said by the activist Arabi Souri :Whoever attends his funeral or mourn his death is worse than him.
