Not all righties are praying for Sharon.
From Media Matters:

On the January 5 edition of Christian Broadcasting Network's (CBN) The 700 Club, host Pat Robertson suggested that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's recent stroke was the result of Sharon's policy, which he claimed is "dividing God's land." Robertson admonished: "I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU [European Union], the United Nations, or United States of America." Although Robertson professed that "Sharon was personally a very likeable person," he nonetheless declared that "God has enmity against those who, quote, 'divide my land.' " Robertson called the 1995 assassination of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin "the same thing." A previous CBN news article, titled "Dividing the Land, Dishonoring God's Covenant," examined Sharon's decision to return control of the Gaza strip to the Palestinian Authority.

Robertson's comment was first reported by JTA, an international news service that covers "issues of concern to the Jewish people," and Joshua Micah Marshall's Talking Points Memo weblog, which links to the JTA website.

From the January 5 edition of CBN's The 700 Club:

ROBERTSON: I have said last year that Israel was entering into the most dangerous period of its entire existence as a nation. That is intensifying this year with the loss of Sharon. Sharon was personally a very likeable person. I am sad to see him in this condition. But I think we need to look at the Bible and the Book of Joel. The prophet Joel makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who, quote, "divide my land." God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible, he says, "This is my land." And for any prime minister of Israel who decides he going carve it up and give it away, God says, "No. This is mine." And the same thing -- I had a wonderful meeting with Yitzhak Rabin in 1974. He was tragically assassinated, and it was terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless, he was dead. And now Ariel Sharon, who was again a very likeable person, a delightful person to be with. I prayed with him personally. But here he is at the point of death. He was dividing God's land, and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations or United States of America. God said, "This land belongs to me, you better leave it alone."

I guess crazy fundamentalists of all religions can find common ground:

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s president said Thursday he hoped for the death of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the latest anti-Israeli comment by a leader who has already provoked international criticism for suggesting that Israel be “wiped off the map.”
“Hopefully, the news that the criminal of Sabra and Chatilla has joined his ancestors is final,” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the semiofficial Iranian Students News Agency.

When someone quotes Pat Robertson on this site, I know that 10 times out of 10 its coming from a anti-Christian lefty. I think those are the only people who listen to the man. Regardless, I fail to see the common ground between his comments and those of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Even in the excerpts you chose to include – it's obvious that Robertson is saying that Sharon is personally likeable and that he is sad to see him in his current condition. Robertson feels that God has inflicted that condition on Sharon because Sharon pulled out of Gaza - thus giving up part of Israel. On the other hand, Ahmadinejad is praying for Sharon’s death and (from his previous BS) wants Israel wiped off the map. You may consider that common ground, but I see the two positions as being polar opposites.

Anti-Christian lefties like Andrew Sullivan you mean?

SHARON, ROBERTSON, AHMADINEJAD: Here are the specific responses to Ariel Sharon's stroke by two leading fundamentalists in the world, Pat Robertson and Mahmoud Ahmedinejad. Julian cites them below. Robertson:
"He was dividing God’s land. And I would say, Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the E.U., the United Nations or the United States of America. God says, This land belongs to me. You better leave it alone."
Ahmadinejad:
"Hopefully the news that the criminal of Sabra and Shatila has joined his ancestors is final."
The difference, of course, is that only one of these maniacs is on Karl Rove's A-list rolodex.

I've never known Andrew Sullivan to post on this site. Look, Pat Robertson is a nut. I haven't read a rightwing blogger trap. That's not the point. The contrasts that I pointed out were correct - the two nuts may both both be nuts, but their comments are not the same. Incidentally, Sullivan's idea of the main difference between the two nuts is absurd. I can think of a far more significant one: the Iranian nut is a president of a country seeking both nuclear weapons and the destruction of Israel. You can laugh at Pat Roberston, he's a harmless buffoon, but Mahmoud is dangerous.

Jeffrey Hill said...

Clarification to my previous comment: I haven't read a rightwing blogger who didn't think Robertson should shut his trap.

Abercrombie said...

I think the crucial link is that both Robertson and the Iranian nut are saying that Sharon is getting what he deserves, even if Robertson says he's a nice man.

قال زهرا بنت رسول الله از جهنم:

خداوند فرمود بواسته دروغی که برخدا بسته ام و خود را بانوی برگزیده خدا درجهان نام نهادم و چادر بسر کردن را بر زنان جهان اجباری کردم و چون به خاطر گناه زهرا بنت رسول و پدرش و خاندانش بر زنان ایران ستم می شود و دختران را کتک می زنند.

خداوند امر کرده زهرای بنت رسول درجهنم کسش باز شده و اهل جهنم و بهشت بر کس او می رینند و زهدان حضرت زهرا پر از گوه شده .
و مکرو و مکرالله
