    Indeed it's without a doubt that Israel's PM Yitzhak Rabin evolved throughout his history as one of its profound and truly authentic leaders. Because of this, many people adored him. No individual, especially politician, is perfect. One should keep in mind the period of making a drastic deviation or being bold from avoiding to settle the disputed West Bank, which he probably didn't foresee as necessary given that after the Oslo Accords, a staged peace process endeavor, the increasing settlement of areas captured in the 1967 Six Days War continued. In Israeli politics, no one could really act alone but rather it's collective sentiments and institutions (religious, legal, etc.) which influence the outcomes. PS. The story of PM Rabin during visit to the White House is incorrect. The PM was asked by President Carter if he would like to go to say goodnight to Amy Carter with him and PM Rabin quickly responds, " no" in the characteristically chutzpaic Israeli way. Years later, someone who knew of the story or even President Carter himself, inquired why indeed did PM Rabin refuse to go say goodnight to Amy? To substantiate my version, one needs to just call historian/former Labour MK Michael Bar Zohar.
