    Benvenisti refuses to put any of the actions of Ariel Sharon in millitary or political life in the full and total context of arab designs to destroy Israel from 1948 on. Benvenisti does not address the arab denial to Israel of the right to exist to this day. If one does so, you will get quite a different picture than Benvenisti's carefully crafted historical revisionism. Unilateralism is the only postive and affirmative solution to the problem of a foe that does not want a peace that recognizes the future existence of Israel.The value of Sharon's tactics will be discussed in biographies and histories 100 years from now, while Benvenisti's revisionist writings will be collecting dust in forgotten sections of libraries.
