Pat Robertson speaks

from - Buck

Well, Brother Robertson is talking again.

Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land."

And according to Pat this is not the first time God has lashed out at one who would dare divide His tiny patch of dirt in the Middle East.

In discussing what he said was God's insistence that Israel not be divided, Robertson also referred to the 1995 assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who had sought to achieve peace by giving land to the Palestinians. "It was a terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless he was dead," he said.

I guess when it comes to a choice between land and war God chooses war. Maybe God knows something we don't. There must be one hell of a pocket of oil or natural gas beneath the Holy Land.

Otherwise, why all of the fuss?
