Le Pen and Sharon: Separated at birth?

Check out the letter in VDARE giving a nicely balanced view of what's behind Jean-Marie Le Pen's electoral success. Also, in my introduction I included a link to a fascinating interview of Le Pen by the excellent leftist Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz. What I'm struck by is how similar in personality Le Pen and Ariel Sharon are. If they had been accidentally exchanged at birth, Le Pen would no doubt be sending bulldozers into Jenin these days while Sharon would have horrified all establishment opinion by making it to the finals of the French election.
