    Rabin became PM without political experience. Rabin became PM with a narrow, myopic view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He needed to be educated. One can see that he gradually improved his political skills and that he gradually started to understand that the long-term interests of Israel require a proper resolution of this conflict. Certainly Rabin made some very bad mistakes on the way. I think he admired the young energetic settlers who may have reminded him of his own youth. The educated Rabin may have realized, though, that in order to be able to carry the painful agreement with the Palestinians, he needs the support of a majority of the Israeli public. It appears that in the last year of his life, he was close to achieving that. I believe that there is a good chance that with the type of political strength and support shown on the day he was assasinated Rabin was going to be successful in striking a lasting peace deal with Arafat.
