Bennett: Despite disengagement, Sharon was great commander
Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Minister Naftali Bennett, who arrived at the funeral service of Ariel Sharon which is set to begin shortly at the Sycamore Ranch, told Ynet: "I grew up hearing about Arik Sharon and his values. Today we come to respect this man's amazing legacy."


Bennett added: "It is no secret that I think the disengagement was a mistake and led to disaster, but he was still the leader of the State of Israel for many years and was an unparalleled army commander." (Matan Tzuri)
