    Show some respect

    It is hardly surprising that Mark Hage avails himself of the Times Argus editorial page to spit on Ariel Sharon’s grave. Mr. Hage, after all, was complimentary about Hamas founder Ahmed Yassin, who convinced his followers that murdering Israeli civilians was not merely acceptable, but laudable.

    Mr. Hage neglected to mention that Sharon was responsible for withdrawing the Israel Defense Forces, and forcibly removing Israeli settlers, from the Gaza strip. Right-wing Israelis predicted this would result in Israel being subjected to artillery and rocket attacks. On the day of Sharon’s funeral, two rockets were fired on Israel from the Gaza strip.
