Prime Minister Sharon a monster, not a leader
As I looked at the BBC News Web site Tuesday, I was angered — though not surprised — to see that Prime Minister of Israel Ariel Sharon has backed down on his deal to pull out six Israeli settlements from the West Bank.
Last month, Sharon promised to halt any current Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory. But a week later, ironically, he approved a $25 million plan to build new settlements in occupied Palestinian territory. (Again, I wasn’t too surprised to hear about that, either.)
As long as Sharon is in power, there will never be peace. This man does not value Palestinian lives as human lives. He’s built a 50-ft. re-enforced concrete wall around the hundreds of thousands of starving, dying, helpless Palestinians and he still claims to be looking into the “Roadmap to Peace.”
In the April 2004 issue of The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, reporter Gideon Levy names Gaza “Israel’s shooting range.”
Last Monday, a 12-year-old Palestinian girl was shot in the head as she sat in the kitchen discussing with her mother what she should cook for lunch. She bled to death in front of her mother’s eyes.
This man will only bring more and more bloodshed to both sides. This monster needs to be taken out of office and charged with war crimes. As long as Sharon is in power, there will be no peace.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
