Everyone wanted to be at Mandala's Funeral, it was a true celebration of a hero. 4 of 5 current and past US presidents attended, how many attended Sharon. One of the highlights was Blair, a has been loser, cheater, and outcast in his country. The other one, Joe Biden, attended only because someone had to do it to please AIPAC. Mandala's funeral was carried life on American networks, I am not sure Sharona's was carried life on Israeli TV. Enough said.
