The memorial events for late Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, who died Saturday, were underway Monday morning with a memorial ceremony held in front of the Knesset, Israel's parliament building. The special memorial ceremony was attended by family members, politicians and world leaders, including US Vice President Joe Biden, former British prime minister and member of the Middle East Quartet Tony Blair, as well as Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Xinhua reported. Biden, who was one of the most senior figures to attend the ceremony, said he knew Sharon from 30 years ago, and understood why people called him a "bulldozer". "He was built in a strong way. When I met him as a young senator it was impossible not to notice that he has the presence of a commander," Biden said.
