'Shalom Haver' forever?

Is this the last year in which Yitzchak Rabin's death will be commemorated as a national event? That's what Arutz Sheva is reporting:
Will the next Rabin Memorial evening be the last? 15 years after the assassination of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Israeli media report that the committee which organizes the annual Rabin memorial event at Rabin square in Tel Aviv plan to stop it due to declining interest and lack of support for its political message of concessions for peace.
I don't know what other Israeli media has reported this - I have not seen it anyplace else. And while I would be pleased to see the banishment of 'moreshet Rabin' (Rabin's legacy), which was used by the Left as a club to beat up the Right for many years after the assassination, I believe there is value in trying to teach the country to have civil debates, and that the date of Rabin's death is as good a day as any to devote to that purpose.

On the other hand, maybe if the worship at the altar of the 'peace process' that the Left has made a part of Rabin's commemoration is stopped, it will be possible to give Yigal Amir a real trial and determine who else played a role in the assassination. Amir is not in jail for murdering Rabin but for 'murdering peace.'

Good riddance to force-fed doctrine.
