sharon is finished. There is little or no chance of him resuming control of Israel's destiny.
The butcher of the camps has ended his relabelling as a man of peace. He will end as a man of blood, even as the blood drains out of his brain.

But there is great hope that the new leader of the Labour party can now lead the country towards peace and justice. Let us hope for that.

CBS News | Sharon Out Of Surgery After Stroke | January 5, 2006 05:03:55: "Hawkins reports that Sharon's stroke throws Israeli politics into a period of uncertainty as Sharon runs for re-election on March 28 as the head of a new centrist party, Kadima. He enjoys a wide lead in the polls. The party's strength is centered on Sharon, and if he were forced to step down, Israel's political scene would be thrown into turmoil.

Ehud Olmert, 'is a veteran Israeli politician,' said Daniel Kurtzer, former ambassador to Israel. “Although it was clear during the last months in the Likud [Party] that his popularity was beginning to wane. He is a proven leader but he will now have to build a popular base certainly for the next few months of governing.” "
