the late rabin was backed into the oslo triggered peace process, he didn't initiate it. like some posters pointed out, he wasn't a forward thinking person, but more of a short range tactician. had he been a visionary leader, he would have siezed on the tragedy of the baruch goldstein suicide attack, when the silent majority in israel suddenly realized what the settlements venture had created and forcibly evacuated the hebron settlers as a prelude of the termination of that illegal, misguided, immoral, disastrous enterprise. the majority would have been with him at the time, but he lacked to fortitude and forward thinking ability of a great leader to do it and he missed a golden opportunity to rid israel of the greatest mistake it ever made. in that sense, gideon levy is aboslutely correct.
