Ariel Sharon has passed away at the age of 85 years old.  He was in a vegetative state for 8 years prior to his passing.  Now that he is gone, what will his legacy be?  He was a man of great strengths, a 'Lion' some called him.  He was a war hero, builder of homes, and a power that put others to shame. 
They called him a 'bulldozer' and a hero, but towards the end of his political career, he had expelled thousands of innocent people from their homes in the unilateral withdrawal of Gush Katif which made him in the eyes of many, a disaster.
On this show, we interview guests Mordechai ben Menachem and Mike Cohen who fought under Ariel Sharon, and share personal stories of Sharon that you won't read in any books! 
Also, our weekly guest Shifra Hoffman joins us and talks about the illegal African immigrants in Israel, and we also cover the latest in the Arab press with Islamic expert I.Q. Al Rassooli . He shares with us some of the headlines in Arab publications on what the Arabs saying about Ariel Sharon.
