West Bank, 2001

Palestinians stage a mock assassination of the Israeli leader during a demonstration marking the anniversary of the Intifada on Sept. 29, 2001 in Nablus, West Bank. 

Sharon was an architect to settle lands Israel captured in the 1967 war, and ended up ordering Israeli military forces and thousands of settlers to leave the Gaza Strip in 2005.
