Gideon Levy is absolutely right. The late Rabin missed a great opportunity to reach out to the Palestinians and the Arab world and work towards a just and comprehensive peace. Like most Israeli politicians, he worried too much about the extreme right wing and the religious right in Israel to take the necessary steps to reach a lasting reconciliation. He failed to recognise the danger posed by the Jewish settlments as a time bomb ticking away at any propsect for peace. As Palestinians, we will always remember Rabin as the arrogant general who ordered his troops to break the bones of our children. There wont be many Palestinians who would shed any tears for Rabin on the occasion of his assassination.
