ABSTRACT
The article reports on Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's position on the roadmap in the run-up to the Israeli elections. In his last interview before being felled by a brain hemorrhage in January 2006, Sharon told Japanese journalists that his policy toward the Palestinians was based on it. In November 2005, wearing a casual blue-and-white-striped sweater, Sharon's strategic adviser, Eyal Arad, showed up at a press conference to explain the prime minister's position on the roadmap.
