Statement by President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the passing of Ariel Sharon

New York, NY

Ariel Sharon gave his life to Israel—to bring it into being, to sustain and preserve it, and at the end of his long service, to create a new political party committed to both a just peace and lasting security. It was an honor to work with him, argue with him, and watch him always trying to find the right path for his beloved country.

Hillary and I join his fellow citizens in honoring his memory and offering our condolences to his sons and his family.
