Professional Oracle and reverend Pat Robertson, who is close, personal friends with God, announced that He is pissed because Ari is trying to give away His land. To teach Sharon a lesson, God sent him a stroke.
Unfortunately, a lot of people think this is further evidence that Pat "We should Assassinate Hugo Chavez" Robertson is insane, which is bull.
Look folks, it's no secret that God doesn't really like Jews. Know who else God doesn't like? Old people. It's true. God can't stand with the old people. They drive him mashuganah, so much so that he reigns down upon them strokes, alzheimers and osteoporosis.
I am not a man of the cloth so I can't say why that is. In the case of Ariel Sharon, the evidence is pretty cut and dry, as Robertson makes clear.
I think we need to look at the Bible and the Book of Joel. The prophet Joel makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who, quote, "divide my land." God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible, he says, "This is my land." And for any prime minister of Israel who decides he going carve it up and give it away, God says, "No. This is mine."
I'm going to send him an email and see what the Book of Joel says about old people. Of course, if any of you are familiar with the Good Book, feel free to educate me.
