Sharon remains in 'grave' condition following 'dramatic' decline

Former prime minister's life teetering on the edge; Sheba Medical Center says 85-year-old facing "final hours".

Former prime minister Ariel Sharon's continued to be in "grave" condition Friday morning as his health remained mostly unchanged since the hospital treating him announced on Thursday of a dramatic deterioration in the 85-year-old's medical status.

The Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer said the comatose former premier was facing his "final hours".

The hospital downgraded Sharon’s status to very critical on Thursday. Hospital officials said he was in immediate danger of death and that others in his condition would not have lasted as long as he has.

Is there some reason we get these constant updates?

He is dying.

The last thread about Sharon’s condition (posted around 0730 on the 9th) led to a non-article (not much more than a headline). This is a regular news article from the Jerusalem Post, for those who are interested in an update.

The man is a real Fighter...

Sharon was a commander in the Israeli Army from its inception in 1948. As a paratrooper and then an officer, he participated prominently in the 1948 War of Independence, becoming a platoon commander in the Alexandroni Brigade and taking part in many battles, including Operation Ben Nun Alef. He was an instrumental figure in the creation of Unit 101, and the Retribution operations, as well as in the 1956 Suez War, the Six-Day War of 1967, the War of Attrition, and the Yom-Kippur War of 1973. As Minister of Defense, he directed the 1982 Lebanon War.

During his military career, he was considered the greatest field commander in Israel's history, and one of the country's greatest ever military strategists. After his assault of the Sinai in the Six-Day War and his encirclement of the Egyptian Third Army in the Yom Kippur War, the Israeli public nicknamed him "The King of Israel" and "The Lion of God".

“It is surreal,” said Dalia, a 65-year-old patient at the hospital in Tel Hashomer. “I am used to seeing crowds here awaiting a birth. I am not used to seeing so many people waiting for a death. But an era is ending and this is part of history.”

Maybe she had it right the first time.

“Is there some reason we get these constant updates?”

Personally, when he goes, there is going to be one kick-ass party at the White House and I am invited. So it is helpful for me to know this so I can plan my social schedule. (/sarcasm)

Yes, but he is dying, when he is dead, that will be news.

The 108 Year Old Rabbi Kaduri prophesied that at Sharon's death Jesus Christ will soon return.

Good grief. This sounds like cruel and unusual punishment. Let the poor old man die.

Jesus Christ will soon return, Sharon’s death has nothing to do with that.

There are many Jews on this forum. Some of us believe that what happened to Sharon was intentional and was meant to be murder.
And WE want updates on him the same as the Catholics on the forum want and get updates on the Pope of which there are many more than the two or three on Sharon.

I’m not Jewish but I also want updated news and information. What happens in Israel is critical to me as someone who believes in what the Bible and God says regarding Israel.

Thank you. That is also why I read the articles about the Pope. We come from the same root.

I’m Protestant, so actually I am more interested in what happens in Israel than the Catholic church. I do, however, pay attention to what’s going on in the Catholic church

Ya know, I don’t usually post much. I read and bookmark mostly. I am grateful for this board as it is one of the few conservative sites where I can find real news and not just what the MSM wants us to hear. Having said that I believe I have only posted a negative comment maybe once or twice. I hate when conservatives fight amongst each other as I feel it does nothing to help champion our conservative desires and only helps to fuel more division within our ranks.

BUT, your comments are truly unnecessary. No one asked you to come to this thread, nor post on it. You should show a little respect.

Many on this board care about the Old Lion. I do. I always have. I care about Israel. I have been very sad to hear the news of late about how poorly Ariel Sharon has been doing. I pray that he will be received into the Kingdom of God and I am grateful that there are those on this board who take the time to post important updates - about everything.

Be well. I wish the best for you.....truly.

If only we knew what time frame ‘very soon’ is when we’re talking about God with whom time is infinite.

If we are living our lives and believing as the Bible instructs us to, then it doesn’t matter if it is in our lifetime or not. At least that’s the way I look at it.

I think I will like to read the book when I get a chance and find out more about it.

After the conversation here, I decided to go ahead and buy it on my Kindle. The joys of 1 click shopping. Started reading it last night but only got to Chapter 2 before I got too tired but it seems really good and I like the writers style.
