Elliott Abrams discusses the late Ariel Sharon's approach to national security policy and asks whether we can learn anything about Israel's current challenges.
"The only way this bleak prognosis could change is if Mr Netanyahu himself were to 'do a Sharon'—that is, to defy his own Likud party, forge a new outfit, reshape his coalition, and—in an expression that often comes up in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv—'cross the Rubicon' on the way to two states."
