I don’t celebrate death of anyone. Sharon will meet his Creator and answer to massacres and destruction committed by him. He was a criminal.

While most media airbrush the war crimes of Ariel Sharon read Robert Fisk & remember the innocents of Sabra & Shatila http://t.co/qrBeh5qqq2

Ariel Sharon has died. Spare a moment’s thought for his victims – from Qibya to Sabra and Shatilla to Jenin.

He fiercely defended Israel. That’s what drives them crazy: he didn’t cower, he didn’t allow himself to be intimidated, he didn’t submit. They focus in the tweets above on actions of war in which he defended Israel: the Sabra and Shatila massacre, the defensive action in Jenin, the incursion into Qibya, and defensive actions in Gaza. They wildly exaggerate Sharon’s culpability for the crimes committed at Sabra and Shatila (for which the Lebanese Phalange is responsible) and the killings of civilians at Qibya (neither Sharon nor anyone else knew they were there), as well as the incidence of actual war crimes in Jenin and Gaza. They ignore the “Palestinian” practice of launching jihad attacks against Israel from civilian areas so as to provoke retaliatory actions that they can use as propaganda.
Above all, none of these people who are condemning Sharon for supposed war crimes has ever shown the slightest degree of concern for Israeli civilians wantonly massacred by “Palestinian” jihadists, or expressed any horror at the celebrations that followed those jihad murders among “Palestinians” in Gaza and Judea and Samaria. Nor do they applaud Sharon for his disastrous mistake of withdrawing from Gaza, allowing it to become (as I predicted that it would at the time) a jihad base for new attacks on Israeli civilians. Islamic supremacists never express gratitude for foolish kuffar who serve their agenda — that’s what Infidels are supposed to do.
He was not perfect, but for the most part he was a strong man in defense of Israel, and for that all free people who face the same jihad that Israel faces every day should be grateful. May his memory be eternal.
