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. The hospital's director-general explained to the group that the hospital was doing for Sharon what they do for everyone, or perhaps a little more, since Sharon is the "prime minister of Israel and the Jewish people," Singer related. Singer added that the 69 parliamentarians - from some 20 countries - had prayed together for the well being of the prime minister.
