MOSCOW, January 11, /ITAR-TASS/. There will be no politician as Israeli ex-premier Ariel Sharon, State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Alexei Pushkov said.
“Sharon was Politician-General. This is the gone history of Israel and the Middle East,” Pushkov told Itar-Tass.
The time will not return when the former premier led the country and acted as a real general, the State Duma lawmaker said.
“There is the Palestinian Authority that several international organisations, including UNESCO, recognised as a state entity,” he said, adding, “I believe that Israeli politicians and leaders will be of ‘other kind’.”
Sharon “was a classic Israeli politician, who grew in the army, carved a military career and won praise among the Israeli population”, Pushkov said, adding that the ex-premier had supported the severest measures against Palestine for a long time although he took a more realistic position in the end of his rule.
“It was Sharon who called for withdrawing Israeli troops from the Gaza Strip and refused to build Israeli settlements there,” the lawmaker said.
