    Levy is reminding us of the other side of things always and thank goodness for him. We admired Rabin for taking what appeared to be a very courageous steps. They were shocking and exciting and gave everyone too much hope. It seemed to us as here that Rabin had a realization and that he was sincere, that he did have it in his heart to bring peace. It's for that yearning for peace that he is so revered. So there was a line between that moment and whatever he did before. It also seemed that his caution, which I am not defending, was from a keen awareness of the split within Israel. He did not have everybody with him ( like Barak). And some were very loud about it even if they were in the minority. So any movements towards peace with Arabs had to be offset by assurances to those against such moves. Perhaps Levy is right that it would have been better to go full steam ahead and really lead.
