    09:51 Jan 05, ’06 / 5 Tevet 5766

    (IsraelNN.com) Prof. Shlomo Mor-Yosef announced at about 9:30am Thursday morning that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has come out of surgery which lasted seven hours.

    Sharon is being moved to a neurological intensive care unit. His condition is reported as very serious.

  • Ironically, after the first stroke he was put on blood thinning chemicals that made it harder to stop the bleeding this time… according to Israel Radio.

    They keep stressing that Olmert and the Knesset are all in their places, that the government is still functioning and stable.

  • By the hand of G-d and no other hand !… 3 years shy of age 80 ! …. PM, popular and working until a few weeks ago… !

    Even his fat belly is defiant: no starving Jew, he.

    He’s almost 80. This is not a tragedy. Just a sorrow. It is normal.

    If he had been an angel, it would have been too hard to go on, so G-d saw to it that he was not an angel.

    G-d doesn’t run out of leaders. We can be calm, and persevere. This story, our story, is not over.
