Sharon The Barbarian
Having the moral courage to establish a dialogue with the enemy does not even seem to part of the formula for Sharon, who just seems intent on unilaterally destroying any hopes for a Midest peace process. If the leaders of "opposing" nations cannot or will not sit down to resolve their differences in a diplomatic and non-violent manner, then those nations have no right whatsoever to resort to violence and blood-letting.
If Sharon was really honest about peace, he would sit down and make serious attempts at diplomacy to resolve Israeli/Palestianian differences. This would be his best "weapon" against Palestinian terrorism as it would put the world back in his corner. He knows this I am sure. But this would also facilitate and legitimize a Palestinian state, which he does not want. His expansionist lust far outweighs any pretense for peace and justice for Israelis and Palestinians!
