ISRAEL'S GENERALS - PART THREE - ARIEL SHARON
This three-part documentary series looks at how Moshe Dayan,
Yitzhak Rabin and Ariel Sharon shaped the destiny of Israel, and
indeed the entire Middle East. Israel's Generals is a comparison
between the three leaders and explores why Israel, proud to be a
democracy, continues to choose generals as its political leaders.
The program also asks whether there will ever be peace as long as
fighters lead the way.
The final episode of Israel's Generals is a timely look at one of
Israel's most loved and most loathed figures, Ariel "Arik" Sharon.
Sharon's path is chronicled in this documentary, from a commander
who carried out the ugly side of political decisions and crushed
dissent with an iron fist, to the father of the settlement movement
and a hard-line politician whose right-wing Likud coalition shattered
29 years of Labour Party rule in the 1977 elections. Using file
interviews, historical vision and interviews with political activists
and insiders, including Sharon's son Omri, Israel's General follows
a controversial figure from military hero to national disgrace and
his subsequent rise to Prime Minister.
