I've always found it odd that The Powers That Be in Israel seem so desperate to keep former PM Ariel Sharon alive, despite the fact that he's been in a "persistent vegetative state" since being felled by a massive stroke on January 4, 2006.

Contrary to the optimistic pronouncements of Sharon's immediate family, according to doctors, the poor man has essentially been bed-ridden and unresponsive for almost seven years now.

I have always found the Jewish people to be very pragmatic in general, not given over to hoping where no hope can realistically exist. So why this insistence on keeping Sharon alive?

Watch this Youtube video, and see if it doesn't provide an important clue to this mystery...

Interesting Youtube Video

I'm not saying I believe everything stated in this video. However, I am saying that it's possible some people high up in the Israeli government believe it. And if such is, indeed, the case, what does it mean for our collective future on this planet once Ariel finally does slip free from the bonds of his brutally imposed half-life trapped in a cage of undead flesh?

Could it be that the Israeli government is keeping Ariel Sharon alive because one of their most revered Talmudic rabbis declared that his death would signal the arrival of the Second Coming of the True Messiah: Jesus Christ?!
