Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu committed a major gaffe on Sunday night when he referred to former prime minister Ariel Sharon and added after his name "may his memory be blessed."

Speaking at a sheva brachot ceremony for Shas chairman Eli Yishai's daughter, Netanyahu was immediately told of his error and he corrected himself, saying that Sharon should "live a long life."

Told of the incident by The Jerusalem Post, Sharon's son, former MK Omri Sharon, said "I don't care, it's not important, and I am not interested in responding."
