Palestinians cheer death of Sharon, a bitter foe
Palestinians stand over pictures of the former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as another holds a burning poster of him in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip, Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014. Sharon was loathed by many Palestinians as a bitter enemy who did his utmost to sabotage their independence hopes by leading military offensives against them in Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza and a settlement drive on the lands they want for a state. Sharon died Saturday, eight years after a debilitating stroke put him into a coma. He was 85. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)
