I had avoided opening this thread since the answer seemed so obvious, POWER_station.
Of course Yitzhak Rabin had something to do with the murder of Yitzhak Rabin!
General Rabin was in the middle of a peace-process; one that seemed to have a good chance of succeeding.
His killer, in sharp contrast to the idiocy posted earlier suggesting mere insanity, wanted the opposite of the present Palestinian position: The State of Israel with no Palestinians. Gen. Rabin was close to ending that possibility by defining a State of Israel, as well as a State of Palestine–both of which would contain as respected citizens both Jews and Palestinians.
When one embarks onto a process, one always runs the risk that someone else so-hates your position that he is willing to murder you. So happened to Rabin–who, as a soldier, always knew that danger existed.
Gen. Rabin was a brave man who did his best to take a road seldom travelled: That of peace prior to the elimination of the enemy.
Rabin’s murderer was also a brave man: willing to risk his life to support **his **position, his vision. What we don’t like about the murderer is the extremely anti-democratic, anti-Libertarian, anti-republican method he used to support his position over the more-democratic position of General Rabin.
As an after-thought and for whatever it’s worth, the murderer succeeded: He** is** getting his way.
