BEIRUT: Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt compared Tuesday late Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to some Arab leaders saying they had a lot in common, in an apparent criticism of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“Sharon was very similar to some leaders in the Arab world who mistreated their people, displaced them and committed numerous massacres against them,” Jumblatt said in his weekly stance to PSP-affiliated Al-Anbaa website.

“Their violence has created extremism and counter-violence,” Jumblat added.

“It seems that ‘Sharonism’ is an Israeli policy that is being implemented in Israel and the Arab countries,” the PSP leader said.

Sharon, a hard-line Israeli warlord, died at the age of 85 after a long battle with illness. He was in a coma for eight years after suffering a stroke at the height of his power.
