Sharon to hand arab israeli towns to palestinians, and she should’ve been fired for it.»
The next day, on Monday, January 27, 2007, according to the Daily Beast and other media outlets, Sharon had an impromptu press conference. She gave a statement to the media, telling them she was sorry «for her words, and for any hurt or distress she may have caused.»
