The adulation heaped on the recently deceased Sharon , Tony Blair’s straight faced attendance and a bizarre collection of people carrying his coffin ultimately to an IDF truck was borderline comical. It is apt that Blair attended but somewhat hypocritical if you take a look at Sharon’s history. He joined a terrorist group at 14 that was intent on driving the British out of Palestine to allow the recently arrived Jews to attack and displace the indigenous people. The constant denials by Tony Blair that he did nothing wrong concerning Iraq made them natural bed fellows (no reference to allegations that Blair was caught twice trying to procure young men from toilets in London several years ago). Then there is the majority of the population of Israel, wrapped up in the mourning for a man who has been effectively dead for 8 years.
With most people that die , there are usually sentiments of kindness and how they enhanced mankind but not with Sharon. ‘He was a brave warrior for the people of Israel’ ……In the fight to steal someone else’s land , sure he was. Sharon wasn’t that brave. He was on the side that was very well armed from it’s inception primarily by the US. So they were much better equipped than the Palestinian Army ….. There wasn’t a Palestinian Army as such…They were almost all civilians fleeing the massacres after hearing about villages close by.
So Mr Sharon wasn’t a war hero , he was a cold blooded murderer of civilians and I haven’t even mentioned the Sabra and Shatilla slaughter’s that he oversaw and subsequently had to resign because of. So you see , Mr Blair is quite at home wearing his kappa at the funeral of a terrorist….It is ironic though.
