Election posters for Likud prime ministerial candidate Ariel Sharon were altered by unknown vandals in Tel Aviv. Posters with the slogan “Only Sharon Can Bring Peace” were altered to read “Only Sharon Can Bring Peace for Galilee.” That was the code name for Israel’s controversial 1982 invasion of Lebanon, which was master-minded by Sharon, defense minister under Prime Minister Menachem Begin.
