Nushyman at Nushworld is reporting,
I have it on good authority (although I still hope it is not true) that Sharon has just passed away. Apparently there is a media block on the story until further notice.
If this is true, it is a sad day for his family and for many others. I have to wonder about the point of posting such a notice without it being officially released. A number of years ago I got a phone call that Arafat had died (he hadn’t yet) because of an error by one of the news outlets. The wrong information set a chain of events into motion that weren’t necessary at the time.
Whatever his condition, I pray that G-d is with he and his family.
(PS – yes, I am still a liberal, I don’t want pain even for those with whom I have disagreed.)
