    When Rabin was assassinated I was on a Kibbutz in Israel and I felt those on the left were blaming me for killing Rabin because I predicted it. It was a horrible, wrong thing that Yigal Amir did but in truth Rabin deserved it. No Jew, gentile has the right to give away Israel the homeland of the Jew's to anyone but Jews. OSLO was a proven failure and we now know that Arafat planned the second intifada in 2000 before OSLO was signed. In fact Rabin's wife said about Barak at Camp David that her husband would be turning in his grave if he knew what Barak offered at Camp David. Not even Rabin was so foolish as the writer's here and others in the extreme Left. OSLO would have been abandoned earlier if General Rabin had lived and many innocent Arabs and Jews would be alive today. Israelis forget quickly the daily suicide attacks which have stopped because of the fence and the IDF liberating previously enemy controlled areas. Do not forget those who died because of Rabin's final mistake.
