Ariel Sharon was a charismatic and extremely polarizing person and politician thats qualities are needed so bad in times like these. He was known as a famous hardliner wich turned in to the PM that took down the Settlements at Gaza in 2005.

I believe that Jews and Arabs can live together. It’s not an easy thing but I believe we can reach an agreement. I don’t want to pretend about talking to Arabs because I meet Arabs, here and on our farm at home. I would like to very careful not to pretend but I think I am one of the only ones here at the present time that will have the power and the strength to tell the citizens of Israel what they have to do and to make compromises and painful compromises, to look into their eyes and say that.”
