Ariel Sharon is on God's hit list

Pat Robertson is at it again. This time, instead of telling the citizens of Dover that God's probably going to forsake them if there's a disaster, he diagnoses the cause of Ariel Sharon's stroke: Divine Vengeance (clip from mediamatters).

You see, Sharon's insistence on working out a compromise with the Palestinians is "dividing God's land," and God happens to be angry. Nevermind that the borders of modern-day Israel and the borders of Biblical Israel are not the same. Forget the fact that it took until 1948 to get it back on the map. None of that is really relevant, because Robertson has found another way to tell people that God is out to get them if they don't interpret the Bible in the exact manner that Robertson believes it ought to be interpreted. Hooray.

"You see, Sharon's insistence on working out a compromise with the Palestinians". Let's get it right, he unilaterally withdrew and erected a fence, which was a sensible maneuver. And he did this because he did not feel he could work with the palestinians in negotiating borders or security. An aside, but nonetheless.

Please excuse my stupidity. I hurried this one along. Nevertheless, he was dividing God's land, so he must die.
