Mayor of the Shomron town of Ariel, Ron Nachman and the Ariel city council have hit on a novel approach for those whose emunah is lacking, who see Hussein Obama or Hillary Clinton as the final arbiters on the Land of Israel and for whom Hashem never really enters the equation. They have decided that the city of Ariel would be named for the comatose former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Nachman explained it this way:
…He saw no conflict between his town’s location and Sharon’s policies. While Sharon initiated the Disengagement, he was still a leading figure in Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria, and his later actions do not erase his accomplishments in that area, the mayor said.
Nachman also gave another, more practical reason that naming itself after Ariel Sharon would be good for the city.
“I’d like to see Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton try to destroy a place named after Ariel Sharon,” he said.
