He was the darling of Israeli right win settlers who would often chant “Arik – King of Israel”.

Yet when be became Prime Minister he authorised the controversial evacuation of Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip.

Sharon’s famous quotes:

“Always escalate”

“As one who fought in all of Israel’s wars, and learned from personal experience that without proper force, we do not have a chance of surviving in this region, which does not show mercy towards the weak, I have also learned from experience that the sword alone cannot decide this bitter dispute in this land.”

“Israel will fight anyone who tries, through suicide terrorism, to sow fear. Israel will fight, Israel will triumph and when victory prevails, Israel will make peace.”
