« Well that sucked | Main | More on Abramoff »


I've got some catching up to do on my blog, so let me take this opportunity to say that Ariel Sharon's stroke came as very depressing news to me. I realize that Sharon is a divisive figure, but for the first time in my memory I had begun to sense that there was actually some hope for resolving the crisis in the region. Sharon and his new party seemed headed toward some type of actual resolution, and it's hard for me to imagine that the momentum behind this initiative can survive Sharon's death or incapacitation. Damn shame.


Many times I disagree with you, but we agree completely on this one. Although Sharon was indeed a divisive figure, he was the only one who could keep the process moving. It is hard to be optimistic without him being involved.

Sharon had no hope of doing anything much. Israel will never be at peace, because so many of them are just like the Arabs and they don't WANT peace.
