ABSTRACT
The article discusses Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's military and political legacy. Sharon's career seems contradictory. The hawkish military leader became the best hope for the peace process. The man who was responsible for the Gaza settlements helped to dismantle them. Sharon moved between political parties, at times creating his own, in a way that left him free from constraining ideologies.
