Sharon to the Rescue

Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom has been consoled by Sharon after hurting himself. No, not that Sharon.

Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom slipped while stepping off the runway in Switzerland Saturday fracturing two ribs, but was compensated by a visit from actress Sharon Stone.

 

Shalom tripped on the ice-covered sidewalk after stepping off a plane in Davos, Switerzland. He had arrived to take part in an economic forum.

 

However, he was more than fairly compensated receiving a sick call from actress Sharon Stone.

 

Stone was participating in the same economic forum to raise money for starving children in Malaysia and Tanzania.

 

According to the International Herald Tribune, Stone pledged $10,000 to combat malaria in Tanzania and urged other participants to “be on a team with me.”

According to Yedioth Ahronoth Stone visited Shalom at his hotel for an hour. During the visit she said she could identify with his pain, as she had a similar accident more than 13 years ago.

 

Once their hot drinks arrived, Stone helped Shalom with his drink to ease his pain.

 

Shalom invited Stone to visit Israel and she responded by saying she would take him up on his offer. She is planning to come in a month and a half.

Update: The whole Sharon/Sharon interchange is an old joke here in Israel. The below poster is a parody of a real election poster for Ariel Sharon (reads: The nation wants Sharon
