Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remembered Sharon as one of the greatest military men of the Jewish people and the IDF while speaking at his memorial service at the Knesset on Monday.

"The establishment of Israel depended on a generation of brave fighters to rebuild a legacy of Jewish bravery that seemed to have disappeared. Ariel Sharon had a central role in reviving this legacy." Netanyahu said.

"As a minister and a prime minister Sharon stood for our right to defend ourselves and live with security," he said.
