Ben Chorin's official call for a Lunatic Truce:

1. I, Lefty Loony, do hereby swear not to blame the right for causing Sharon's stroke by impugning his integrity.

2. I, Righty Loony, do hereby swear not to attribute Sharon's stroke to divine punishment for specific crimes against Judaism.

No deal.
Coz I don't know any lefties who do this. And all the righties definitely do do this sort of thing.

Moshe Negbi already floated it Wednesday night. It's popped up in several places since.

Ben: I heard it was the kippa-wearing doctor's fault.

Robertson says Sharon's stroke is God's punishment

The Reverend Pat Robertson says Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's massive stroke could be God's punishment for giving up Israeli territory.

The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network told viewers of "The 700 Club" that Sharon was "dividing God's land," even though the Bible says doing so invites "God's enmity."

Robertson added, "I would say woe to any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course."

He noted that former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.

Robertson said God's message is, "This land belongs to me. You'd better leave it alone."

(Though it must be said that suggesting stress killed Sharon is far less offensive to everything Jews are supposed to hold dear, that saying that the stroke was God's payback.)

When Israel TV's official legal eagle (Moshe Negbi) pins the stroke on specific leaks by Sharon's political enemies and then goes on at length about why those leaks are illegal and unethical (after he defended identical leaks on the identical topic when Leora Glatt-Berkovich was responsible for them at a time when Sharon was still identified with the right), the left is playing the blame game. This is not new and not pleasant; you may not know it, but according to the official wisdom here, YOU killed Rabin.
