Although I am not a fan of Arik Sharon, after when he was in the Netanyahu government, he supported giving Arafat more land yet Ehud Barak is even worse. This guy wants to divide the capital city of Jerusalem and give part of it to the Arabs. Although I believe that Sharon is the better candidate, there is not much difference between them.

Actually, I think there's a major difference between them. First of all, I doubt that you know more about the "Land" you speak of better than these two war heros. They probably know more about the land of this country than anyone else. Second, and this is the major difference between them, while Ehud Barak was willing to give away most of the territories and East Jerusalem (including the Beit Hamikdash) just to save his career, Sharon only offered the bare minimum when he was in Netanyahu's coalition.

Sharon seems to care a lot more about the welfare of Israel than about his career. Personally, I was appalled that Barak resigned as Prime Minister in order to stop Netanyahu from running. He was attempting to interfere with the democratic voting rights of the people of Israel- how dare he determine by loophole who they can and cannot vote for. That seems like a very selfish plan of action, and definitely like a man who cares more about himself than his own people.

I honestly have no idea how Sharon will do as Prime Minister, especially with a left-wing majority in the Knesset- but one thing is certain: he's earned his right to try. The people have spoken and overwhelmingly are prepared to give him a chance... I think we should do the same.
