Post Editorial: Pat Robertson is a "Pathetic... Religious
Extremist"</bigger></bigger></bigger></fontfamily></bold><fontfamily><param>Arial</param><bigger><bigger><bigger> </bigger></bigger></bigger>

Christian television evangelist Pat Robertson and the president of
Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have a well-established affinity for the
outrageous. This time their mutual embrace of indecency places them in
a category all to themselves. As Ariel Sharon lies hospitalized and
critically incapacitated by a massive stroke, Mr. Robertson, one of
America's best-known religious extremists, and his Iranian counterpart
-- no slouch when it comes to religious demagoguery -- suggested that
Israel's prime minister had it coming. Speaking on his TV show, "The
700 Club," on the Christian Broadcasting Network, Mr. Robertson said
the Bible "makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who
'divide my land.' "....

Pat Robertson and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are probably beyond the point
where they can be reached by embarrassment or shame. But they are not
beyond the kind of strong condemnation that they have richly earned.
We need not recite the records of contemptible remarks made by both
men in the past. There is little reason to believe that either will
cease his disgraceful behavior. Mr. Ahmadinejad, the president of a
country with a lamentable human rights record and a nuclear program,
is dangerous, where Mr. Robertson is only pathetic.
