Gilad Sharon on His Father's Legacy and Israel's Future

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Ariel Sharon served as Israel's prime minister from 2001 to 2006, but Sharon's long career in public service began with Israel’s War of Independence in 1948. Sharon suffered a stroke in 2006, leaving him in a coma-like state. While he is now immobilized, Ariel Sharon leaves a legacy that will no doubt affect his country for decades to come. 

Gilad Sharon is Ariel Sharon's youngest son. His new book is a biography of his father, called "Sharon: The Life of a Leader." He reflects on his father’s life and the future of Israel.

Unsurprisingly the name Arafat appears no where in this selective review of history which focuses on Sharon's reactions but never Arafat's actions that preceded and instigated it.
