Gaza rabbi believes evacuees will pray for PM

Rabbi Yosef Elnekaveh, regional rabbi of Gaza, said early Thursday in an interview to Israel Radio that despite the pain of the disengagement, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had worked for years to build Israel. "He is a brother," Elnekaveh said, adding that the Jewish people should pray for Sharon's recovery. Elnekaveh stated that he believed that most of the Gush Katif evacuees would wish Sharon a full recovery.
