Rabbi Voldemort?

So, apparently certain persons are trying to curse Ariel Sharon to death. (Thanks, FailedMessiah, for bringing that to my attention, I really need to keep up on Ynet.)

I initially wrote 'nutjobs', rather than 'persons', but I scrapped that. The question here is not whether I or they believe they can cause death by such means. The issue is that they're trying.

From what they're saying, I infer that they're trying this rather than conventional assassination methods because they believe their target to be too heavily guarded, however, they are taking (ethereal) credit for the assassination of Rabin, also a couple of Israeli public figures they didn't care for who are now dead.

This is obscene. Askkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger is quoted in the above article as saying "Such acts constitute a defilement of God’s name, and they drag the name of Jewish values through the mud." Couldn't have said it better. (Is that why he's the Chief Rabbi and I'm not?)

After all the talk about various Jewish and Christian groups not wanting children to read Harry Potter, because of the witchcraft, this is all I need: Rabbis trying to place an Avada Kedavra curse on Ariel Sharon.

This sort of confused me. These 'people' really seem to be at least moderately demented.

Frankly I think that if Sharon were removed from the situation by being killed or some mysterious death, that it would lead to his causes being that much stronger, in this case the disengagement. Much like JFK's agenda was relatively easier to implement for Johnson after his death.(JFK's not Johnson.)

You can take the Jew out of the pagan, but you cannot take the pagan out of the Jew. These follks need some serious ex-communicating. I here there is a Santeria community in Netanyah they can join.

Trying what? Whats the big deal?

Maybe if Ariel Sharon prayed to kick Jews out of their homes, instead of getting the Police and IDF to REALLY do it, people might be a bit more sympathetic towards him.

Trying to kill. What's the big deal? Neighborhood I grew up in, political assassinations were frowned upon.

Trying to kill via a voodoo curse? Do they arrest people in your neighborhood too for voodoo? What other civil liberties do you like to curtail?

Oh, I get it - you can kick Jews out of their houses, give them pathetic reperations -- all thats fine and dandy. But Voodoo curses? Oooooh...now thats a bad thing.

What sort of a Balabusta likes to kick Jews out of their homes and bulldoze shuls? Think its going to be real fun dragging away limbless children from Kfar Darom out of their homes? Good for you!

This kind of publicity - it was all over the European papers - and political ju ju we can live without.
