JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Ariel Sharon officially re-
linquished the post of De-
fense Minister but it is too
early to tell whether he will
emerge weaker or stronger
from this latest crisis on his
flamboyant and fiercely
controversial career.
Judging from demonstra-
tions in his favor while the
Cabinet deliberated his fate
last week after the commis-
sion of inquiry into the Be-
irut refugee camps mas-
sacre recommended his res-
ignation or dismissal, Sha-
ron's supporters among
rank-and-file Israelis are
legion. But public opinion
polls have shown repeatedly
that not too many people are
sorry to see him go.
When Sharon first ran for
political office on his own,
on the Independent Shlom
Zion ticket in the 1977
Knesset elections, his fac-
tion won only two seats. But
that result is no measure of
his political power today
which resides within the
governing Likud coalition.
Sharon's close suppor-
ters are intensely loyal.
His press adviser, Uri
Dan, expressed confi-
dence Sunday that the
departing Defense Minis-
ter eventually will
achieve the highest
office. "Those who re-
fused to see Arik (Sha-
ron's nickname) as Chief
of Staff, had to see him
become Defense Minis-
ter. Those who refused to
see him as Minister of De-
fense will have to accept
him as Premier," Dan
said.

which produced first the
Gahal faction and later
Likud. He joined Premier
Menahem Begin's first
government as Minister
of Agriculture. But he
soon became a key
member of the coalition,
getting himself ap-
pointed chairman of the
Ministerial Settlement
Committee from which
he pushed for massive
Jewish settlement in the
territories.
When Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman resigned in
1981, Begin's reluctance to
name Sharon his successor
was a bitter pill. But the
general swallowed it
quietly.
After Begin's re-election
in June 1981, with a re-
duced Knesset margin,
Sharon presented-him with
a virtual ultimatum and
was named Minister of De-
fense.
The war in Lebanon last
summer was the result of
his own long preparation.
He was determined from the
outset not only to destroy
the Palestine Liberation
Organization but to change
the political infrastructure
of Lebanon.
During the war, he was
accused of presenting the
Cabinet with faits ac-
complis, but so far as is
known, none of his fellow
ministers rebelled.
Nevertheless, as the Is-

rael array pushed deeper
into Lebanon, disatisfac-
tion within the govern-
ment and in the army
grew.
When Sharon ordered the
siege of west Beirut —
round-the-clock heavy
bombardment of the city
from land, sea and air—one
young officer, Col. Eli Geva,
publicly expressed the
anger and misgivings felt
by some members of the
officers corps and within the
ranks. Geva asked to be re-
lieved of his divisional
command whicch had been
slated to enter the city. He
was relieved and sub-
sequently discharged from
the army.
After the massacres in
the Shatila and Sabra refu-
gee camps, a number of
senior officers threatened to
follow Geva's example un-
less an investigation was
ordered. Both Sharon and
Begin bitterly opposed a
judicial inquiry but backed
down under severe public
pressure and the commis-
sion was appointed.
The commission's report
forced Sharon's resignation
as Defense Minister. But
Sharon salvaged his politi-
cal career. He will remain in
the Cabinet. As he told De-
fense Ministry staff at his
ceremonial departure: "In
this establishment one does
not always know who comes
and who goes."
