Sharon's bogeyman career was not terminated by his adoption of the unilateral disengagement policy. Disengagement was converted, somehow, into another villainous Zionist genocidal plot, because facts don't matter for anti-Zionist propaganda. Whatever Israel does, it is evil Zionist expansionism. If Israel retreats, it is reverse expansionism. If Israel offers a Palestinian state, it is apartheid and bantustans.
Unfortunately for the anti-Zionist, the Lieberman straw bogeyman may be collapsing. Ha'aretz newspaper quotes Lieberman as saying that Israel must move directly into negotiations for a political settlement with Palestinians. The silver lining for anti-Zionists, is that Lieberman, also said that Israel should not give up efforts at achieving security. Security is undoubtedly an unreasonable and undemocratic Zionist demand.
The bogeyman will no doubt live on. Long live the bogeyman.
