Ariel Sharon's Birthday

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon turned 79 today.
In January of 2006, Sharon suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke, and has been comatose ever since.

Always a controversial figure, Sharon is nevertheless a prominent part of Israel's history, and he served his country as both a warrior and a statesman.
While his politics may be subject to disagreement, his heroism is well established.

Ariel Sharon may be gone from the headlines, but he is not forgotten.
His birthday should not pass without note.
