ABSTRACT
The article argues that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's clarity of vision and indomitable will in Israel's cause made him a leader his countrymen trusted and relied upon. Sharon believed that a leader's job was to lead, not to follow polls. Most Israelis understood that he could be counted on to face any challenge confronting Israel. His vision was to be the leader who established Israel's permanent borders. Sharon gave up the failed policy of trading land for peace. Separation and withdrawal were central to his plans. He will be remembered as one who restored a sense of direction and moral purpose to his people.
