    So whats the big deal if Rabin was capable of showing emotion? In the political world that could even be considered weakness. If you put Bibi & Rabin in the same room negotiating the same issue then Bibi the ever so clean cut calculating politician your never quite sure if he thinks your offer is acceptable and he is just trying to get you to drop your price even further. You take Rabin who can show emotion you will probably be able to read from his body language if he likes your offer and if he does your not going to let him negotiate you down further. As far as the peace process is concerned the 2 individuals who have done most for it are Sharon who in exchange for a promise that the US would not ask Israel to give up settlement blocks Sharon gave Gaza. The other person is Yigal Amir. When Rabin was alive despite the rallies the bulk of the public were skeptical about oslo and not in favor of it. When Rabin was shot in an act of solidarity most the skeptics rallied around the left and said lets give oslo a chance because we shouldn't let Yigel Amir win.

    from the article: Remember Rabin for what he was: a real person
