G-d Bless Ariel Sharon
February 26, 1928- January 11, 2014
From 2001-2006 Prime Minister Ariel Sharon served his country. Before he was Prime Minister he was Defense Minister for Israel. He also became a general in the (Israel's military) IDF. He was surrounded by controversy during his military and state office.
In 2006 he succumbed to a massive stroke and had been in a coma for eight years. He was larger than life during his lifetime. He fought til the end of his life as he did in life, like a warrior. He was surrounded by personal tragedies. He is the news article announcing his death in the Jewish Forward. Another article about the love-hate relationship we had with him in the United States
Here is the official website of Prime Minister Sharon. The Jerusalem Post has a article about his passing and funeral here. I pray for Prime Minister Sharon and his family. You can now be in peace. May your name be in blessed memory.
