Yigal Amir has never claimed his innocence in the abhorrent murder of Yitzhak Rabin z"l. Why would any moral, religious Jew countenance any form of leniency towards him? Personally,amongst a wide range of religious Jews I know, not one has an iota of sympathy for this criminal. The ones making their voices heard are the usual rabble-rousers.
