    Thank you for that more balanced view of Rabin as opposed to the hen picking and nit picking of the "know it alls".Rabin took a leap into the unkown ,he let Arafat back!!! He armed the PA !!! How many big talkers here would have the nerves of steel to do that?Of course he was no doubt conflicted about it," did I too much? Did I do too little? What about the consensus of centre right and centre left needed to pull this off" The point is that he was the first one to break through the stagnation and open the door to a two state solution.It took man of great personal courage and yes of Vision to come to terms with the realities of Israel and the Palestinians. For that alone he deserves respect and consideration. How ungrateful petty little people are, how often people are not worth helping as here is what you get for your troubles, whiners, nit pickers arm chair geniuses, non of whom could have held their knees from buckling under them as they contemplate jumping out of an airplane with no parachute the risk he took for the good of his people and their future. Thanks Yonotan! Danite
