NORFOLK, Va. – Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s stroke was divine punishment for “dividing God’s land.”

“God considers this land to be his,” Robertson said on his TV program “The 700 Club.” “You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,’ and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'”

Sharon, who ordered Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza last year, suffered a severe stroke on Wednesday.

In Robertson’s broadcast from his Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach, the evangelist said he had personally prayed about a year ago with Sharon, whom he called “a very tender-hearted man and a good friend.” He said he was sad to see Sharon in this condition.

He also said, however, that in the Bible, the prophet Joel “makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who ‘divide my land.'”

  1. Geee i thought the entire universe is Gods’. I also seem to remember that we as mere humans were not to be guessing what it is that God is up to because it is far beyond our comprehension. This seems even more true of Mr. Robertson because he can’t even comprehend basic christian values (compassion for one) or even basic diplomacy ( does he not know that many people in the world are not happy with American foreign policy- some just hate the United states because of not being able to seperate the U.S. administration and their policies from the country and people in general). Didn’t his mother ever tell him if he doesn’t have anything good to say then he should just SHUT THE F@#K UP.
