What happens Post–Sharon?

It's clear he's going to die in the next few days (barring an Act of God(tm)) so what happens when he's finally put in the ground?

I'm not thinking of the ramifications of his death upon Israeli politics as such – Israeli politics has essentially remained unchanged since 1967 – but what happens during and after his funeral.

He's currently the Israeli PM and he'll probably die as the Israeil PM which will probably lead to fanfare a State Funeral.

Now, a lot of people will be unfamiliar with this guy's history. Many people in the UK and elsewhere see him today as "The guy who desired peace so much that he made the decision to remove a few thousand illegal settlers from the Ghaza strip" rather than the man responsible for Sabra and Shatilla, the invasion of Lebanon (and the subsequent bombing – including the use of phosporous shells – and shelling of Beirut, resulting in the deaths of at least 20,000 Lebanese/Palestinian civilians). The man who was the driving force behind the settler movement in nearly all his ministerial posts (resulting in the 300,000 Israeli settlers currently defiling international law and expanding in the West Bank and let's not forget those extra in Jerusalem). The man who was responsible for "Operation Defensive Shield", or the "Operation to Destroy all Palestinian Infrastructure".

This man, an ethnocidal/genocidal criminal (and, according to the UN definition of Genocide, he, and all other Israeli political leaders since 1948 have been Genocidal) will be given full state honours and buried with much applause within Israel, rubbing into the collective face of the Palestinians 60 years of repression, executions, torture, expulsion, imprisonment and destruction.

The Second Intifada was launched as a result of him visiting an Islamic and Jewish holy site (surrounding by thousands of soldiers and police). Imagine this criminal being treated as a hero.

Alternatively, there may simply be much furious celebration not seen in the area since the trial of Eichmann.
