Brave but aggressive.

Obama can’t seem to grasp the fact that defense is a losing strategy. He can’t get hold of the fact that peace is merely the interval between wars.

One morning there is going to be a problem. He is going into the dining room and discover that his lunch is gone. Others have devoured it.

Good to see a picture with Moshe Dayan. Israel certainly had its share of great military men. Today in the US we have lots of perfumed princes. Sad.

He truly was a great man. I hope President Bush is able to attend funeral or memorial...

The State of Israel bows its head on the passing of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Ariel Sharon played a central role in the struggle for the security of the State of Israel over all its years.

He was, first and foremost, a courageous fighter and an outstanding general, and was among the IDF's greatest commanders.

From his youth, he served the people of Israel on the battlefield. He did so as a soldier in the War of Independence, a commander in the Sinai campaign and the Six Day War, and up to his decisive role in the battle over the Suez Canal that led to the turning point in the Yom Kippur War.

He established Unit 101 and took the initiative in the war against terrorism, which became a central pillar of the State of Israel.

Upon leaving the military, he continued to work on behalf of the people of Israel both in his many government roles and as the 11th prime minister of the State of Israel.

His memory will be enshrined forever in the heart of the nation.
