ARIEL SHARON : A SCARY SHAME
The media coverage related to the death of Ariel Sharon in the United States and France (especially but not only) is staggering. It seems as if a former Head of State of one of these two countries died. In addition, one salutes his memory as Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and François Hollande did.
Salute the memory of Ariel Sharon ? This warlord who killed so many innocent civilians, who was a direct accomplice during the massacres of Sabra and Shatila and staged the withdrawal of Gaza to continue his campaign of colonization, destruction of Palestinian homes, imprisonment and summary executions !
Salute the memory of a man whose only right fate should have been to be judged by the International Court of Justice for crimes against humanity (in addition to aggravated complicity of torture, terrorism and ethnic cleansing) ?!
Salute the memory of such a man reveals the hypocrisy and cowardice of those, who few weeks ago, saluted Nelson Mandela's memory, saying they were sharing his values and struggle for justice.
A scary shame
