    Sharon. First, before he was a hero in 1973 he was a notorious criminal. Head of a virtual terror squad tasked to carry out actions against Palestinian targets inside Jordan. Unit 101. In Qibya in 1953 he set a precedent which he was to return to time and again as his career progressed from butcher-soldier to honoured statesman. The U.S. State Department issued a bulletin denouncing the Qibya massacre, demanding that those responsible be "brought to account." Of course, Sharon was responsible. He was not held responsible though, instead he was promoted. Israel's foreign minister at the time, Moshe Sharett, confided to his diary that the stain of Qibya "would stick to us and not be washed away for many years". He was wrong. The village had been reduced to rubble, forty-five houses had been blown up, and sixty-nine civilians, two thirds of them women and children, had been killed. Sharon and his men claimed that they believed that all the inhabitants had run away and that they had no idea that anyone was hiding inside the houses. So Sharon lays the foundations for his future exploits in Lebanon and the OTs. The obvious pride in your *heros* is most touching and revealing, Peter.
