  Yitzchak Rabin Memorial Day

On 6-9-1997 the Knesset passed a bill that would establish 12 Heshvan (the Hebrew date of Rabin's assassination), Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Day. The day would include the lowering of flags on public buildings to half mast; special activities in schools; and a special note of the day on IDF bases. A memorial service would also be held next to his grave on Mount Herzl.

So today is Yitchak Rabin memorial day. I will include a few words about Rabin and maybe even a few about his old friend Mr. Sharon.

Yitchak Rabin was born on 3-1-1922 in Israel. He would eventually become Israel's first native born Prime Minister. In 1940 he joined the Haganah and helped to fight the British out of Israel. In 1964 he became Chief Of Staff, and had a played a major roll in winning the Six Day War. In 1968 he became Israel's Ambassador to Washington. In 1974 he succeeded Golda Meir as Prime Minister. In 1976, approved the Entebbe raid, in which he authorized the operation of Israeli commandos in the rescue of more than 100 Jews held hostage there. In 1977 he resigned as Prime Minister. As defense minister (1984-90) in the Labor-Likud coalition government, Rabin ordered a harsh crackdown in the West Bank in the late 1980s in an effort to end the Arab uprising there. In 1992 Rabin led Labor to victory and became Prime Minister for the second time. In 1993 Rabin signed an unprecedented "peace agreement" with yasir araFAT that would give the arabs self rule in gaza and the west bank.

Rabin was an amazing man with a lot of accomplishments. He was a great soldier and a lousy Prime Minister. He wanted what all Israeli's want. To live in peace. He did however make a detrimental mistake. He broke the golden rule of the Israeli Government. He made a deal with terrorists.

On 11-4-1995 he was assassinated by Religious Jew, Yigal Amir.

Today, Sharon is repeating history only he is going about it in a completely different manner. He isn't negotiating with terrorists. In fact, he isn't negotiating with anybody. Not the arabs, not the Americans, not the quartet, not the Likud, not the Israeli people. He is Unilaterally disengaging from the arabs.

I believe that disengagement is necessary however that is not the topic of discussion here. The problem with Sharon is that he is alienating the people of Israel. In an Israeli democracy that just doesn't play. He knows the Israelis are tough and wont stand for it and that is why he is surrounded by 6 - 10 bodyguards at all times, whether he is speaking in the Knesset or taking a piss. He is all to aware of the consequences of his actions.

I wish Sharon the best. I only hope that as a public servant he does what the people of Israel want him to do and not what's on his personal agenda.
