Legacy of a Slain Prime Minister: The Peace That Never Was

13 Marcheshvan 5776

A milestone is deserving of comment. It has been twenty years since a Prime Minister of the State of Israel was slain. Last night, the Cult of Rabin kicked off a week of festivities to celebrate commemorate his death and his legacy. 

This is my small contribution...


Let us take a moment to remember the korbanot who were offered against their will on the Oslo 'Altar of Peace' for which this slain PM received fame, fortune and accolades.

May the names and memories of each person involved with this "covenant of death" (Isaiah 28.15-19) be blotted out forevermore.

  1. Despite what we see as human beings, I don't think it's right to judge someone publicly and especially a deceased person. You are not Hashem and it's just wrong.

    1. "We specifically must love the Jew who shares our commitment to Torah and mitzvot. As for the evildoer who does not accept rebuke, it is a mitzvah to hate him: It says, 'Fearing the Lord means hating evil' (Proverbs 8:13); and, 'O Lord, do I not hate those who hate You?'" [Hagahot Maimoniyot, Rambam, letter 1)]

      How much more so for a mass-murderer of Jews!?

    2. And another thing... There would be no need for this if the 'Other Side' would cease and desist from publicly drawing attention to it (every single year!) in a way that requires a response.

  2. I was in Eretz Yisrael at that time and I remember how awful it was.
    There was this feeling as if Rabin driving a huge steam roller down a street full of people with everyone screaming as they were being crushing, "Stop! Stop!" and he just kept steam-rolling everyone to death while chanting robotically, "Sacrifices for peace, sacrifices for peace."
    It was so horrible and people suffered so much and he didn't give a whit.
    This doesn't even begin to cover the arrests of dati-leumi rabbanim for merely speaking out against him (like the Communist mentality with which he was raised) and his behavior prior to Israeli Independence which also murdered many Jews, both directly and indirectly, like with the Altalena and the 1948 Battle of Nebi Samwil (Shmuel Hanavi).
    Thanks for posting about this.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience. I came a few months later. I had the experience of the first anniversary. And suffered the verbal abuse of the chilonim of that time who placed the blame on everyone wearing a head covering.

  3. Before Rabin, I had believed that the state of Israel was invincible and perfect. (Of course, I had only visited it for two weeks.) After Rabin, I realized how wrong I was.
