Ariel Sharon was a terrorist. He terrorized Palestinians. He terrorized his own people with the fear mongering he needed to justify his twisted, criminal and murderous outlook on life.

Preface by Washington’s Blog: We documented in 2009 that fascism and our current crony capitalist economy are indistinguishable. We noted in 2011 that America’s public resources are being raped and pillaged … just like those of small debt-saddled countries like Greece.
