Senior Likud officials boycott Ariel Sharon memorial gathering

There's realists who recognize just how repellent he became in the end after he committed the "disengagement" that gave Hamas the rocket range to fire at Israel:
Lawmakers and ministers from the right-wing Likud party – with the exception of two MKs – snubbed the official state remembrance ceremony for one of the party's founders and icons, the late former prime minister Ariel Sharon, at his family ranch in southern Israel on Friday.

Sharon, the burly former general who rose to the top of the political ladder following a controversial career in both the military and civilian life, was recognized on the second anniversary of his death.

After spending eight years in a coma following a stroke, Sharon passed away at the age of 85.

Although he rose through the political ranks through the Likud primarily as the patron of the settler movement, the religious Zionist movement was stung by Sharon's decision to uproot 8,000 Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip as part of the "disengagement plan."
If I were a member of their committee, I'd avoid this ceremony for him like the bubonic plague. What he did didn't just cost many people their homes, it also cost lives in the long term, and morale. There's just so many skeletons he had in his closet too, and a man who had acts as vile as what he did back in 2005 enabled does not deserve any state memorial service. To me, he's now a pariah who managed to deceive many when he was still around.
