Sharon Turns 80

View as Single Page Single Page   

Today, we’re reminded that — amazingly — former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon is still alive, still in a coma after suffering a stroke two years ago.

Today is his 80th birthday.

Unless, it’s tomorrow. The MJL article on Sharon lists his birthday as February 27, as does Wikipedia and Jewish Virtual Library.

When Sharon suffered his stroke, Yehudah Mirsky wrote an excellent article for us about the prime minister’s legacy. The article can be found here.
