Members of the World Jewish Congress on Monday emerged from Hadassah Hospital shortly after doctors decided to gradually reduce the medications sustaining Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's coma. World Jewish Congress Governing Board Chairman Israel Singer told Channel 1 that the group had come to visit the prime minister as anyone would visit a sick person, and not for inside information on Sharon's condition.
