    In his last speech in the Knesset, the late Mr. Yitzhaq Rabin in Oct. 1995 he stated the following very clearly: 1. Jerusalem will remain united as Israel's capital and it will also include the suburbs of Giv'at Zeev and Ma'aleh Adumim 2. The Jordan Valley must be viewed in the widest sense of the word and must remain under Israel's control 3. Major settlement blocs, e.g Gush Etzion, Binjamin, Ariel, will be incorporated into Israel and will be part of its sovereign territory 4. A Palestinian state will not be a regular state, e.g. its airspace and border passes will be controlled by Israel, it will be demilitarized Isn't it time Obama realized two things: 1. Rabin's vision is realistic and is based on both Israel's national and security interests, as well as the interests and needs of the Arabs of Samaria and Judea. and, 2. Rabin's vision is nearly identical to that of Netanjahu's!!!
