Ariel Sharon dead at 85, and I'll shed no tears

It's true that once, he was known for some heroic deeds and wasn't afraid to make serious efforts to defeat jihadists in war. But after he forcibly removed a few thousand Jews from their homes in 2005 and even went so far as to make a statement that sounded akin to the word "judenrein" (in other words, he said something potentially anti-semitic in his old age), I cannot and will not feel sorry to see his comatose body go.

Predictably, the MSM is having their field day with this news, using labels like "extremists" in their coverage:
Five years later, Sharon was again barreling headlong into controversy, bulldozing ahead with his plan to pull Israel out of the Gaza Strip and uproot all 8,500 Jewish settlers living there without regard to threats to his life from Jewish extremists.

His allies said the move was a revolutionary step in peacemaking; his detractors said it was a tactical sacrifice to strengthen Israel's hold on much of the West Bank.
Neither of these arguments makes any sense, because in the end, it only enabled the Hamas to launch rocket attacks more easily.

Plus, he also had a record of what would today be considered aggravated assault, among other offenses like accepting bribery from the Austrian businessman Martin Schlaff, violent suppression of democratic protests, and even a casino scandal.

Joel Pollak is a bit more honest in his coverage of a man who, after the horrific way he behaved in his advanced age, I cannot and will not talk about in respectful terms, because he doesn't deserve it. His negative actions make it impossible.
