    Rabin never offered any such two-state compromise Former Israeli President Shimon Peres has pre-empted the memorial rally this Saturday evening to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the assassination on 4 November 1995 of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin - by writing – quite misleadingly - of Rabin’s vision in the Jerusalem Post this week. Former US president Bill Clinton, Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin and Yitzchak Rabin’s daughter - former deputy defence minister Dalia Rabin - are scheduled to participate in the rally – and hopefully will set the record straight.

    I have been warning for months that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might lose the March 17 election. In November 2014, before elections were called, I noted that Netanyahu had been elected on a promise to oppose Barack Obama, and now that Obama’s lame-duck term had begun, Israeli voters might feel secure enough to look elsewhere for leadership. What they–and indeed many Americans–failed to see was how much damage Obama still intended to cause.

    Sunday, July 13, 2014 How Diplomats, Reporters and Human Rights Activists Saved Hamas Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog As Israeli airstrikes hit Hamas targets and Hamas rockets fall on Israeli towns, some wonder how did Gaza come to run by Hamas terrorists. The answer is that the world forced Israel to let them in. In the early 90s, Nissim Toledano, a border police sergeant, was kidnapped by terrorists on the way to work. After an extended search, he was found dead in a roadside ditch. In response to that attack and numerous other atrocities committed by...

    Israel’s predicament today is the work of Rabin and Sharon; two generals turned prime ministers who launched ambitious ventures and died leaving them unfinished and their nation in twilight. Rabin’s peace process destroyed Israeli national security and revitalized terrorism as a force in political affairs. Had he lived, he might have turned away from it. The idea had been thrust on him by the fringe left and he had grasped it as a hedge against the political oblivion of a leftist party that had lost credibility in a new Israel no longer dominated by the Socialist vision of cooperatives and...

    Former minister Yossi Beilin said Saturday that former Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin was a man with a short temper and a long streak of nastiness when it came to dealing with residents of towns in Judea and Samaria. “It wasn't worthy behavior for a Prime Minister,” said Beilin, a former Labor politician who was identified with the radical-left elements of the party. Beilin, one of the proponents of the Geneva Initiative, which advocated a total Israeli withdrawal from all lands liberated in 1967, said that Rabin “would fight with the settlers for fighting's sake.

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai issued perhaps the strongest response, saying Friday, “The hands that permitted themselves to harm what is holy and important to the people of Israel should be chopped off.” The Labor party called for a harsh response as well. “The murder of Rabin and the memorial are a national symbol that reminds us that extremism and violence are a threat to Israeli...

    RIMONIM PRISON, Israel (Reuters) - Twelve years to the day he assassinated Yitzhak Rabin, the late Israeli prime minister's killer held a ritual circumcision for his new son on Sunday as supporters and protesters scuffled outside his prison. Yigal Amir, who shot Rabin at a peace rally in Tel Aviv on November 4, 1995, became a father last Sunday. Jewish tradition dictates circumcision should be performed seven days after a son's birth. The child was named Yinon Eliya Shalom. A court ordered prison authorities to arrange for Amir, an Orthodox Jew, to hold the ceremony in jail after his request...

    For Palestinians, Yitzhak Rabin is remembered first of all as someone who instructed soldiers to break their arms and legs, when they began their popular uprising against the Israeli occupation in 1987. Before the handshake on the White House lawn, before the Nobel Prize and before the murder, when Palestinians were asked about Rabin, this is what they remember: One thinks of his hands, scarred by soldiers' beatings; another remembers a friend who flitted between life and death in the hospital for 12 days, after he was beaten by soldiers who caught him drawing a slogan on a wall during...

Organizers of the commemoration heeded advice against using the day as an indictment against the right wing, as had been the case previously. The events would focus on a condemnation of all violence, incitement, and threats to national unity. In addition, they would educate the public about the...

Though he admitted in court to pulling the trigger and was even filmed in the act, the 35-year-old religious Jew now claims new evidence suggests there might have been a high-level plot to kill Rabin--and that Amir’s bullet therefore may not have been the fatal one.

Larisa Trimbobler said she hoped her in-absentia wedding to Yigal Amir last month would help overturn a court ban on conjugal visits for the ultranationalist who shot Rabin at a 1995 rally in a bid to block peace deals with the Palestinians.

    Although Labor and the Likud differ in their views on the solution to the Palestinian question, we both oppose in the strongest terms the creation of a Palestinian "mini-state" in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, first and foremost because it cannot solve anything. It certainly will not be able to absorb the almost million and a half Palestinians who currently reside beyond these two areas; and just as surely it will be ruled by the most extreme faction in the Palestinian political spectrum - the PLO. Such "internal" Palestinian politics might not be any of Israel's business were...
