Inappropriate and Insensitive

Runaway Raft on the Tigris, 1875
In the second week of January, according to Harper's Weekly Review, "Pat Robertson apologized to Ariel Sharon's son, Omri, for being 'inappropriate and insensitive' when he said that Sharon's illness was God's punishment. It remained unclear, however, whether Robertson would once again be permitted to build a theme park by the Sea of Galilee."
