Israelis mark 20th anniversary of Yitzhak Rabin assassination

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent
 

On November 4, 1995, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.

Israel's first Israeli born prime minister, Rabin was killed by a Jewish terrorist.

TheRebel.media traveled to Rabin Square in Tel Aviv to ask Israelis about his legacy.

One describes the assassination as "a psychological bomb."

Another remembered Rabin's "message of peace and kindness."

Many argue that Rabin made the wrong decision when he signed the Oslo Accord.

However, I see Rabin as a leader who was ready and willing to give up land in exchange for a true peace.

I have a 28 year old, engineer educated daughter, who lives in Tel Aviv, leftist, who was at this peaceful demonstration.
I remember taking her as a young girl, to sit outside Rabin’s apartment building, to mourn the loss of our Prime Minister Rabin.
I was mad.
Why can’t we find a way to make peace with these Arabs? We are such a smart people, yet can’t find the way.
Anyway, on Sunday, I texted her, saying that there was going to be an Arab demonstration on Sunday evening, where over 100,000 peaceful Arabs were going to demonstrate for making peace with Israel, recognizing Israel’s right to exist, and for the PA to accept it’s state, end the conflict, and move on.
She texted me back, “where Abba, where”
Sadly, I haven’t responded to her text, because this will never happen.
I had my awakening to reality in 2006, here in Canada, via an Iraqi Christian, whose family had been run out of Iraq by the moslems, who insisted that I read the koran, the whole thing.
Got myself a koran, and yup, there it is, all the Jew hatred etc. that will never allow Jews to live freely with moslems in the Jewish State of Israel.
And that Arab peaceful demonstration also will never happen.

Israel has asked Palestine, many times, to have meetings, to discuss a peaceful settlement over land disputes, the Palestinians have never agreed to this. They will never be happy until all Jews are dead, world wide. Evil people, indeed.

Linda, “But even after the Jews and Christians are driven out of the Holy Land and Israel is no more …”

Wouldn’t that be, “But if the Jews and Christians are driven out of the Holy Land and Israel is no more …”

Just asking.

Is there some reason you think this comment will be deleted?

Ceding more real estate to people who hate the existence of Israel is crazy. Push the Islamists into the sea or hand over all of Israel to them.
But even after the Jews and Christians are driven out of the Holy Land and Israel is no more ,that won’t be enough for the Islamists . They won’t stop there. World domination is their end game.

Peace is not man’s to give, it is God’s. As a Christian, I will never submit to the evil ideology of Islam. They may kill my body, but they will never kill my soul.

I apologize for this being off-topic, but what happened to the video about the Christian who was attacked and put in the hospital with stab wounds by three Muslims outside of a Toronto sports bar who left their truck behind. The spokesperson for the Toronto police said that she could not find the file because she did not have the details. She didn’t get back to the person making the inquiry after they gave her the details. Is this going to be treated as a hate crime? I wonder what is going on! I wonder how long this comment will last?

“However, I see Rabin as a leader who was ready and willing to give up land in exchange for a true peace.” Seeking peace is laudable. However, how does that work with a state that has declared Israel as its enemy and seeks its ultimate destruction? One of the rules of war is to know your enemy. Muslims are commanded not to seek peace with the unbelievers, when they are the more dominant party. Muhammad is reported to have said that “war is deceit”. Islam has a different understanding of the word “peace” Peace will only come when the whole world submits to Allah.
