REMEMBERING YITZHAK RABIN


Israel's president, Shimon Peres addressing the crowd at the 14th anniversary of the assassination of former Prime Minister of Israel,Yitzhak Rabin in Tel Aviv.

Rabin was shot in a Tel Aviv square rally for support of the Oslo Accords. His assassin, Yigal Amir, a religious fanatic, rejected Rabin's peace initiatives.
Many people in Israel to this day blame the "Right" for the environment that enabled an Israeli to take the life of a prime minister.
If Rabin wasn't assissinated, would there have been peace today between the Israelis and Palestinians? We just don't know.
