Robertson Links Sharon Stroke, God's Wrath

By SONJA BARISIC, Associated Press Writer

NORFOLK, Va. - Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land."

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'"

Sharon, who ordered Israel's withdrawal from Gaza last year, suffered a severe stroke on Wednesday.

In Robertson's broadcast from his Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach, the evangelist said he had personally prayed about a year ago with Sharon, whom he called "a very tender-hearted man and a good friend." He said he was sad to see Sharon in this condition.

He also said, however, that in the Bible, the prophet Joel "makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who 'divide my land.'"

Sharon "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 ( European Union), the United Nations, or the United States of America," Robertson said.

In discussing what he said was God's insistence that Israel not be divided, Robertson also referred to the 1995 assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who had sought to achieve peace by giving land to the Palestinians. "It was a terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless he was dead," he said.

The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement urging Christian leaders to distance themselves from the remarks. Robertson made similar comments as the Gaza withdrawal occurred, it said.

"It is outrageous and shocking, but not surprising, that Pat Robertson once again has suggested that God will punish Israel's leaders for any decision to give up land to the Palestinians," said Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the group, which fights anti-Semitism. "His remarks are un-Christian and a perversion of religion. Unlike Robertson, we don't see God as cruel and vengeful."

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said a religious leader "should not be making callous political points while a man is struggling for his life."

"Pat Robertson has a political agenda for the entire world, and he seems to think God is ready to take out any world leader who stands in the way of that agenda," Lynn said in a statement.

Robertson spokeswoman Angell Watts said of critics who challenged his remarks, "What they're basically saying is, `How dare Pat Robertson quote the Bible?'"

"This is what the word of God says," Watts said. "This is nothing new to the Christian community."

In August, Robertson suggested on "The 700 Club" that American agents should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has long been at odds with U.S. foreign policy. Robertson later apologized for his remarks, saying he "spoke in frustration."





Does Pat have an explanation as to why God isn't laying waste to the heathens on all sides of Israel who seek not only to divide his land, but to murder everyone living there? Or, is it only Jews that suffer God's finicky vengeance?? Surely it's not just nature at work when some old guy up and gets sick and dies? No, that's silly. Must be God.

Complete asshat.

Take a trip to Israel and take some time to admire the crumbling, dry, hot , stinking of piss and burnt garbage crapholes these people are fighting over. If I lived there I'd be praying for a quick death and something better too.

now god doesnt talk to me.. but im willing to bet that if robertson heard someone telling him that sharon was getting his due.. it was from the devil.

i suspect god doesn't take lightly to people like robertson telling stories about how god is punishing someone because he crossed some line that only this assklown knows about (dividing gods land)

funny thing. two key folks commenting about sharon have been assklown robertson and assklown ahmenhiabidabad (or whatever his assklown iranian name is)...

First off I don't get his "theology" at all. He's christian so should'nt it be Christians that now occupy the holy land? Why does he want Jews to have it and not christians since he obviously considers "chirstianity" to be the only true religion. Second I could be wrong but I dont think Gaza was ever part of historical Isreal. It belonged to the Philistines did'nt it? Lastly How does God care if some humans draw an imaginary political line around a paper map? The land itself is unchanged so how does this make God mad? What the fuck does he care?? This is just madness to me.

It's idiotic to try and force certain historical events into Scripture simply because you wish it to be so.

I have no idea whether Pat Robertson is the 'real deal' or not, and I don't think about this often, at all.

I have enough on my plate to deal with, as it is.

He is neither…

DO NOT think for one second he does not know EXACTLY what he is doing and EXACTLY what the reaction will be.

He does this sort of thing BECAUSE it will draw attention to him. The only time anybody pays attention to him is when he pull one of these stunts, this is by plan not accident. Pat Robertson is a asshole but he is not stupid, senile ,or insane, as many want to believe.

Pat went far off the reservation here.

Sharon's stroke may have been God's judgement, but it is more likely that the fact that he was old and in bad shape was responsible for his stroke.

Thus Pat should have kept this opinion to himself.

I have felt (and, this is strictly a personal opinion, that "Taking the Lord's name in vain" meant not only "cussing" but using the Lord to further a personal agenda. "The Lord wants you to..." Or, "The Lord's wrath did this." Who is he to speak for God. Say what he wants if something is in Scripture. As far as the editorializing is concerned, leave the Lord out of it.
