Rabin strove for peace (but only) in the last years of his life. This is a good flag for Labor. But Rabin as PM is actually a symbol of Labor's DECLINE. Labor's decline is due to its leaving its social ideals behind and concentrating only on peace and security (a trend mostly led by Peres who eventually even quit the Party). One symptom of this was the Rise of the Generals, some of whom became party leaders and PMs. Generals tend to be uninterested in social matters, and Labor's generals were no exception. General Rabin was the first General PM, and failed miserably in his first term (1974-77), allowing Likud to come to power. General Barak was the second PM, and he is still active in the burial of the Labor party. Better to memorialize Oslo or some peace move, not Rabin the man. Indeed, Peres is still around and he is the one who pushed Oslo on Rabin the Cautious. Let there be an annual rally in favor of the Oslo process. Politically, it will be easier to cancel official memorials to both "martyrs", Rabin and Zeevi together, one from the Left and one from the Right. As far as Rabin's portrait dominating the Labor party's Knesset room, replace it with Ben Gurion's, the founder of Labor, for God's sake. Much more helpful and appropriate as a definition of what Labor is about.
