Yes, for the religious, "accidents" have purpose...

Reader comment on item: [After Sharon:] Israeli Politics Will Revert to Its Past
in response to reader comment: Some say "The Work Of The Great Sharon Should Continue."?

but...for those of a more secular bent...we have to look for rational explanations if any lessons are to be learned...not try to fathom out Divine plans...or read minds...(I believe this is, in part, Pat Robertson's mistake...he believes he can somehow assume Divine authority...incredibly arrogant, isn't it?...but Pat is just another idiot...)

anyway, I'm not entirely convinced that Sharon was a leftist "peacenik" (even though, on certain occasions, he may have lapsed into certain kinds of rhetoric...it remains rhetoric...and rhetoric is of far less importance than what Sharon did -- and let's not forget the elimination of a number of terrorist leaders..)

I also think it's too soon to put a feather in the cap of the Lunatic / Suicidal Left...(and this is what seems to happen whenever the Left starts crowing about Sharon's "pacifism"). Sharon's stress on security should be mentioned...(the Left needs to be reminded of this whenever they start claiming Sharon as one of their own..)
