That was kind of my point - I don't know. And neither does Mr Robertson.
From a strictly Biblical standpoint (which Mr Robertson says he believes...) there is simply no basis for his argument.
The Bible says that God will do what he will do and no man can understand his ways ( it says this in many places I can provide references if anyone is interested but I don't really want to turn this into a Bible discussion). If he really believes the Bible (as it is written) then he can't say this kind of stuff; unless he thinks HE is god...
My main point was that it is just a really foolish thing to say - even IF it is true - and it just makes Christians in general look foolish. Mr. Sharon has a family and they don't need to hear this kind of garbarge regardless of the differences in their faith.
Many people seem to associate what he says with what Christians believe - and it's just not the case.
