    The official Shamgar Commission Inquiry into the Rabin assassination found that the person closest to Yigal Amir in the months prior to the murder was NOT an "extremist rabbi", but rather a SHABAK agent, Avishai Raviv, who publicly, on numerous occassions encouraged Amir to kill Rabin. Thus, we must conclude the SHABAK knew very well about Amir and the danger he posed. YET HE WAS ALLOWED TO GET INTO THE STERILE ZONE close enough to shoot Rabin. The police even checked his ID when he was there, according to the Kempler film made of the shooting. WHY DID THEY LET HIM IN THERE? Why did SHABAK agent Raviv call several reporters within 1 or 2 minutes fo the shooting and tell them "we missed this time, but we'll get him the next time". Raviv also told people standing around him that "Yigal Amir did it" long before the police released his name to the media. HOW DID HE KNOW THIS? We need these questions answered. Without them, there will always be conspiracy theories.
