    I certainly would not call Sharon a visionary. After all, a visionary is someone who envisages something remarkable that no one else can imagine. Rather, Ariel Sharon is a product of his time and place in Israeli history. He is a student of the Jabotinsky principle of an "iron wall", but, unlike Jabotinsky, he cannot seem to grasp the importance of creating/making peace with his neighbors and, especially, the Palestinians. If Israel is to be in existence 50 years henceforth, Israel must come to a just and fair understanding with the Palestinians. Sharon doesn't get this. Peace comes on his terms and his terms alone. Sadly, this could have grave consequences for the Israeli children of tomorrow. Israel needs (the world needs) a true Israeli visionary to finally shepherd a settlement to this decade-long conflict. Like Moses, a true visionary will lead his/her people to the Promised Land - a land of peace and prosperity!
