Israel's 'Crazy Pats'
The unhinged nut cases exist all over, but these folks are just over the edge, in Crazy Pat Land.
Far-right activists took credit Thursday for the severe deterioration in Ariel Sharon’s health, claiming that a pulsa denura – Aramaic for “lashes of fire” – death curse they instigated against the prime minister in July was the real catalyst behind his current state of health.
“I take full responsibility for what happened,” far-right activist Baruch Ben-Yosef, one of the participants at the July pulsa denura, told The Jerusalem Post. “Our pulsa denura kicked in. Nothing could kill Sharon and he said his ancestors lived until they over 100 years old but we got him with the pulsa denura.”
On Wednesday night, Ben-Yosef and additional far-right activists gathered in the Samaria settlement of Kfar Tapuah to honor Binyamin Kahane – son of Meir Kahane – and his wife Talya who were murdered by Palestinian terrorists exactly five years ago. Upon hearing the news of Sharon’s stroke, Ben-Yosef said, the group broke out in song and dance and celebrated the prime minister’s fall throughout the night.
And what about this wild-eyed freak — he sounds ready for the straitjacket…
Fringe activist Michael Ben-Horin, also a participant, told WND, “Sharon cannot be assassinated by a man. He has too many guards and too much security around him. We believe in god, so we are asking god to kill him.”
Asked what would be the most appropriate death for Sharon, Ben-Horin replied, “The best thing would be for a Qassam rocket to fall on him like he lets them fall on Jews in Gush Katif. But we’ll take what we can get.”
