              Sarid vs. Sharon
Uri Dan, a journalist, commentator and long time friend of Sharon has some advice for Yossi Sarid, the rabid Israeli left-winger and Oslo architect:


So what can I demand of Sarid? That he stand resolutely on the battlefield, in the wind and cold, making decisions under fire, as I Sharon saw do for that first time in 1954, and again in the 1956 Kadesh Operation, and yet again in the 1973 Suez Canal crossing? I wouldn't be exaggerating to say that we might have come back with our tails between our legs (or not come back at all) had Sarid been at the helm in these battles....

Since 1954, I have seen endless attempts to fill Sharon's path with obstacles, to destroy him on the battlefield. And he was no less hated by Jews who were, and remain, the most contemptible of all. And Sharon survived, thank God. "Sarad" ("survived", in Hebrew), not Sarid.
