Rabin memorial rained out

The Left's Rabin memorial, which was scheduled to take place in Tel Aviv on Saturday night has been postponed for a week due to expected rain.
Rain fell overnight on Thursday in Tel Aviv, and the water and strong winds caused damage to equipment already set up in Rabin Square in advance of the demonstration.
I have something to say about that. Let's go to the videotape.

Maybe it will rain next Saturday night too.


(I actually wanted to use a classic Hebrew kids song for this, but I couldn't find it on YouTube. Anyone who has had a kid in kindergarten here can guess which song I wanted...).

It is tasteless of you to continue slagging off on a man who tried to find an alternative to endless confrontation with the Arabs and paid for it with his life. Mr Rabin himself was under no illusion about peace. He said - I am quoting from memory - he, his son and grandson were prepared to fight the Arabs but any alternative should be grasped if viable. Tell me this, in 1991 after the Americans had destroyed Iraq who in Israel could have stood up the blandishments of Clinton and the larger Arab world. By killing this man, the assasin Amir ensured that hundreds more would die as the politcal consensus shifted decisively to Oslo. It was a sure-fire to discredit the sceptics of the peace process and drive them to the wilderness. Mr Rabin had he lived would have been voted out as the violence continued. Israel would have understood sooner that peace was not possible. And many hundreds would be alive today as the line on the Palestinians would have hardened much sooner. Are your friends, as they dance on his grave prepared to take responsibility for this outcome?

Amir didn't give the 'Palestinians' weapons.

Rabin did.
