Batty Robertson speaks again

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.'"
Um... given that line of reasoning, shouldn't Balfour have suffered divine punishment? Or Hertzl? Or any of those Brits who handed their children a map of the Middle East and some crayons, using the scribbles to decide the borders of countries?

If Sharon is suffering from divine punishment, it would be for massacring thousands of Arabs at Sabra and Shatila. (The official Israeli number is 700, and the Arabs claim up to 3500, so it must be somewhere in the middle.) And we all know his recent "peace" actions weren't for peace's sake. He obviously learned nothing from Berlin.

Pat Robertson should worry about suffering divine punishment for his hatred.
