Pat Robertson on Ariel Sharon

And now, our own homegrown Taliban, Pat Robertson, blames Sharon stroke on policy of "dividing God's land". Via Media Matters:
From the January 5 edition of CBN's The 700 Club:

ROBERTSON: I have said last year that Israel was entering into the most dangerous period of its entire existence as a nation. That is intensifying this year with the loss of Sharon. Sharon was personally a very likeable person. I am sad to see him in this condition. But 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." And the same thing -- I had a wonderful meeting with Yitzhak Rabin in 1974. He was tragically assassinated, and it was terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless, he was dead. And now Ariel Sharon, who was again a very likeable person, a delightful person to be with. I prayed with him personally. But here he is at the point of death. He was dividing God's land, and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations or United States of America. God said, "This land belongs to me, you better leave it alone."
This is the same man who blamed the 9/11 attacks on pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, and lesbians, when on his show Jerry Falwell said that they "helped this happen."

  1. Hi again! The Holy Spirit's message on the Christian Prophet blog today calls Pat Robertson "insane." I think a much more reasonable view of Christianity is presented on The Holy Inheritance blog.
