Statement by the Vice President on the Death of Ariel Sharon

Jill and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Ariel Sharon.  We send our condolences to his family and to his beloved nation of Israel.  I look forward to leading the U.S. delegation to his memorial service, to pay respects to the man and to pay tribute to the unshakeable partnership between the United States and Israel.
