      "Investigate Posters Celebrating Sharon's Death"

      Internal Defense Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich has ordered the immediate investigation of posters discovered on Sunday quoting the halakha (Jewish law) that no mourning is allowed for heretics or those who surrender brethren to the enemy and endanger their fellow Jews, and on the contrary, even their relatives and friends dress in festive clothing and hold a feast of celebration to mark their death (as interpreted by Maimonides).

      The posters also sarcastically congratulated Sharon on his death.
