The official memorial service for Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was held on Sunday November 13th, the 12 of the Jewish month of Heshvan, the Hebrew date of his assassination — as it is every year on Jerusalem’s Mount Herzl. Rabin was murdered in Tel Aviv on November 4, 1995.
“The scar from the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin will ensure for generations and will not be erased,” Netanyahu said at the Mount Herzl ceremony. The prime minister went on to say that Rabin had spoken of the threat posed by radical Islam to Israel and the entire free world, and even quoted remarks made by Rabin to then-U.S. President Bill Clinton. “Rabin sought peace,” Netanyahu said, “but he recognized the unwillingness of a significant part of the Palestinians to make peace.”
Indeed what most people do not realize Rabin was not the “sacrifice everything for the sake of peace” person the liberal media painted. In fact Yitzhak Rabin was the last prime minister of Israel that did not support the creation of a Palestinian State.
