    Rabin was murdered at a peace rally, oslo was in the early stages he died before any of the serious talks began. Lets not assume that if Rabin had lived we would all be friends now. Rabins asassination did more for the oslo camp than any other action because out of sympathy for Rabin more of the sceptics started saying give oslo a chance. Its easy to say you don't like the current PM and at the same time Rabin on a pedestal he died without proving anything. Judge Bibi on his actions after he leaves office don't try compare him to Rabin. This is not the same as the peace with Egypt & Jordan where there was 1 man with authority to speak for everybody and what he said went and there were no complicated issues like settlements, refugees or Jerusalem. Also Israelis were united in wanting those deals. The palestinians have no leader that speaks for everybody & there are to many complicated issues so we cannot use the same format & we cannot compare the situation
