sh, people will make hypothetical claims reg. rabin depending on which camp they adhere to. it's of course an interesting question, 'what he would've done'. i remember rabin hadn't made up his mind at least as late as the spring of -95 (the year of his death) as to whether there should be an independent pal. state, & i have a TIME interview w/him from may -95 to that effect. things were still open & in a flux then. remember that he was gone before the terror attacks had grown really ugly in -96 & he didn't live to see the 2nd intifada. i think it's fair to say that a lot of wise people back then weren't sure of where the whole oslo 'gamble' was going & they were right in being sceptical as well as hopeful.
