    Yitzhak Rabin is the empitome of what the State of Israel was created to be in 1948, that is the peaceful integration of the Jewish people into the Middle East. From the founding fathers up until the death of Rabin and beyond, Israel was and is always best placed to be a place of co-existance and tolerance for both Jewish and Arab peoples. It is unfortunate that the Messianic quest that began in 1967 eroded the original vision of people like Ben-Gurion, whom always envisioned an Israeli State that features an Arab-Israeli presence, as a way of integrating the Jewish population into an Arab Middle East. Let the light of Ben-Gurion and Rabin shine on now and into the future. I hope that Obama looks more towards Tel-Aviv, and the legacy of Ben-Gurion and Rabin, than Jerusalem, Netanyahu and the Messianic fervour which is the death-knell of peace. It is heartening to see that Barak and Livni will be there in Tel-Aviv commemorating Rabin and all that he stands for. Rabin is alive in spirit.
