Livni calls MK Struck’s comments evil and unintelligent; Marzel: “I’m glad Sharon, a threat to Israel, was removed.”
MK Orit Struck apologized for expressing gratitude that God stopped former prime minister Ariel Sharon from perpetuating further tragedies upon settlers on Sunday morning.
Struck told Galey Yisrael radio host Kalman Liebskind that she was not sufficiently sensitive and made her comments too early.
Later Sunday, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich said he plans to investigate displays of happiness about Sharon’s death.
“This is despicable conduct and I will not ignore it,” Aharonovich stated. “I asked the police to investigate and take care of the issue quickly and professionally. I take such criminal behavior seriously.”
Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said Struck’s remarks are “disgusting incitement that embarrasses the Knesset.”
“This displays her lack of intelligence. She isn’t reflecting what [Sharon] did, it shows she’s evil,” Livni told Army Radio, repeating the word “evil” several times.
Livni expressed concern about other right-wing extremists’ actions.

No one should desire the death on any human being. Jesus the Messiah abolished the death penalty, by being the blood atonement for our sins.
The word “removal” of Arial Sharon must have been misunderstood. It is not immoral to pray for the removal of Sharon from the political leadership of Israel. But to say so on the time of his departure is being insensitive.
But going against the Word of God and surrender God’s land to the pagans, surely comes with consequences. As it always have done:
See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.Deuteronomy 30:19This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.
Arial Sharon was a good fighter, an intelligent strategic planner of the military defense of Israel. But as a politician, Arial Sharon was no success. His legacy will forever be painted by his complete fiasco in Gaza.
For the Arabs in Gaza Sharon was a disaster. By ordering the destruction of all Jewish properties in Gush Katif, Sharon opened the doors for the Hamas. Today the Arabs in Gaza are living as slaves for one of the most despotic and cruel terrorist regimes on Earth.
For the state of Israel, the withdrawal from Jewish land was of its gravest mistakes. The Hamas and Islamic Jihad has fired more than 8.000 rockets into South Israel, as a thank for this “peace gesture” of Sharon.
The former General ended his political legacy by splitting the ruling Likud party. Sharon formed a new party, “Kadima”, or Forward. Today this party holds two seats in the Knesset, and is mostly considered as nuisance. What Sharon did was to take a huge step backwards on behalf of the state of Israel.

Ivar – Could you site in the scriptures where God has explicitly abolished the death penalty subsequent to Jesus’ death? Jesus’ death and resurrection has abolished, for those who have repented and believe on His name, the eternal death penalty for all of creation. Please use/quote the KJV in your argument.
