    Rabin trusted Arafat. He gave guns to the PLO. The Oslo agreements were a farce. Arafat spoke nice things to Israel, but incited the Arab mobs. Terror was on the rise. The Baruch Goldstein incident happened after many terror attacts against Jews. Goldstein was a medic on call that rushed to many terror incidents and snapped. Many Jews protested Rabins naive approach to Arafat. Terror attacts took place in all Jewish cities including Tel Aviv. Rabin referred to the victims as 'victims for peace'. The courting of Arab MKs and left MKs working for family reunification (right of return) with the goal of a binational state next to a PA entity was the main project of Rabin. And the Jewish public rejected this goal. The polls prior to the murder showed Rabin losing big time to Bibi. After the murder the support for labour should of been at it's highest-they lost to Bibi. The Israeli public had enough of the farce called Oslo and did not want a binational state. The reason Israel left Gaza was pure demographics. The Arab population there has grown to 1.4 million-so it was a liability. Rabin did not build a fense and did not fight terror with full force and failed to bring security. His speech on October 5, 1995 is not relevent and is more smoke and mirrors by oslo supporters and those opposed to Sharon. The bottom line FIGHT TERROR WITH FULL FORCE AND JEWISH BLOOD IS NOT CHEAP AND JEWS ARE NOT 'VICTIMS FOR PEACE'

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran
