Change in the Middle East

Ariel Sharon, the Prime Minister of Israel, has suffered a very serious stroke and a brain hemorrhage; he is in grave condition.
Jack points out that Mr. Sharon was one of the few leaders still alive who was active in 1948 when the modern state of Israel was established. Even some Arab leaders are now expressing appreciation for Mr. Sharon’s leadership, due to his bold (and controversial) decision to pull Jewish residents out of Gaza.
This development plunges the Middle East into political uncertainty. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem / Israel (Psalm 122:6).

    The problem with this uncertainity, is that it really is uncertain! Anything could happen, and there is no way of telling who will do what, even if they tell you!

    I hope that new blood will bring in some good changes.

    “The times they are a-changing”, and uncertainty rules the ME.

    Interesting, eh?

    First Arafat, now Sharon. It’s a changing of the guard on both sides. Perhaps it’s a hopeful development, but it’s hard to feel optimistic right now. As Mrs. Aginoth says, anything could happen.
