Israel's President Shimon Peres shakes hands with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden (R) as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu takes his seat during a memorial ceremony for former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon at the Knesset, Israel's parliament, in Jerusalem January 13, 2014. Israel paid homage to Sharon at the first of two funeral services to be held on Monday for a man hailed as a war hero at home but seen by many in the Arab world as a war criminal.
