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 Sharons 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.

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.
I thought he had died years ago....

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".
He is and was a major world figure?
Maybe she had it right the first time.
Thank you for the update. Prayers again for him and his family.
Isn’t there some prophecy about his death????
“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.
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.
