…my condolences to the family of Ariel Sharon and to the people of Israel, whom Mr Sharon led not only as a military commander but as a political leader.

Full speech

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Mr Whiteley ) (12:29): Could I take this opportunity to add my condolences to the family of Ariel Sharon and to the people of Israel, whom Mr Sharon led not only as a military commander but as a political leader. I refer honourable members to a very poignant article in the Australian Jewish News on the 15th which pretty well sums up the thoughts of members today. So I thank members today for their contribution.
