Look at the comparisons - SHARON - was fighting for independence as young as 14, in the Haganah, into the IDF as a full time career soldier, out the IDF into politics and the things he believed in he fought for even when the world hated him for it. LAPID - a pampered prince, in the IDF he was doing journalism. He came out the IDF became a journalist and TV host. He eventually decided he wanted a career in politics. All we actually know about his political ideology is he hates religion. Sharon was fighting for the creation of a state from his childhood, he defended his country asa soldier, he served his country in politics afterwards. There won't be any state funerals for Lapid when his time comes. Lapid has second largest party in the Knesset right now but next election he will be on his way down not heading toward the prime ministers residence. All Lapid cares about is himself and Yesh Atid is almost certainly another of those here today gone tomorrow parties that have come and gone over the years.
