From Ha'aretz today: The Gush Emunim movement, said Rabin, is a cancer in the body of Israeli democracy. Its members are not pioneers, they are extorters?. The only prime minister who foresaw the danger was unable to recruit to that sensible view even the social and party circles closest to him.

It is possible, he said, to travel to Gush Etzion with a Jordanian passport. He said this, yet did not insist. This weakness, too, vis-a-vis the settlers, is a part of the Rabin heritage. Yet, nevertheless, it must not be forgotten that during the two years of his term that remained after Sebastia, Rabin did not allow Gush Emunim to establish any additional settlements?
