A Tribute to A Man of Peace
With everyone praising this great man of our time
in his final hours, I decided to hold hands with Condoleezza Rice, Jack Straw, and King Abdullah of Jordan, and sing "Kumbaya Sharon Kumbaya."
Prime Minister Sharon is showing strong, visionary leadership by difficult steps to improve the lives of people across the Middle East. I’m grateful to the prime minister for his friendship.- George W. Bush
Cool!! 2 more 9-11's and I'll be a Man of Peace too. - Osama Bin Laden
Prime Minister Sharon is a man of courage and peace. - George W. Bush
The prime minister had surprised everybody by the courage and statesmanship he's shown in recent years to work towards a long term peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians.- Jack Straw
A wonderful, historic leader.- Condoleeza Rice
Donald Rumsfeld threatened to pull Nato's headquarters out of Brussels unless Belgium revoked a legislation giving its courts the power to prosecute foreigners for alleged war crimes committed anywhere in the world.
"He voted against the peace treaty with Egypt in 1979. He voted against a withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 1985. He opposed Israel's participation in the Madrid peace conference in 1991. He opposed the Knesset plenum vote on the Oslo agreement in 1993. He abstained on a vote for peace with Jordan in 1994. He voted against the Hebron agreement in 1997. He condemned the manner of Israel's retreat from Lebanon in 2000. By 2002, he had built 34 new Jewish colonies on Palestinian land.
And he was a man of peace."-Robert Fisk's Eulogy
