Loving to Hate

The Israeli Left has a long history of hatred of any Jew who doesn't accept their philosophy and politics.

This is the time of the year when we're reminded of it. Yitzchak Rabin's Yartzeit (anniversary of death.)

It was Rabin who told the hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens who demonstrated against his Oslo Plan that they could "spin like propellers." He also stated that he was Prime Minister for those who agreed with him. It was "winner take all" in his concept of democracy.

After his assassination, the Left announced that all religious, all who live in YESHA, were responsible for the murder. I'm not going to get into whether Yigal Amir shot real bullets at Rabin or a blank, meaning that someone else is the murderer, but don't forget that Yigal Amir wasn't from YESHA.

Decades before Rabin was killed, Rabin commanded the Palmach soldiers who shot at the Altalena, killing Jews and destroying the weapons which had been brought to free Jerusalem.

And before that, the Revisionists were declared guilty of killing Alossoroff, even though research has shown that they weren't involved, but the Left never lets facts get in the way.

Yes, it's hate time, that horrid season which destroys the national unity.

The 12th Yartzeit of Yitzhak Rabin: A time for politics

The twelfth anniversary of the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin is approaching, and some Israeli legislators are using the anniversary as an opportunity to pander and stand on their soapboxes while a nation mourns. Consider Knesset Member Eitan Cabel (Labor), who submitted a bill today that would prevent Israel’s president from granting clemency to someone who murdered a prime minister for political or ideological purposes.

The law contains within it a provision that would require 80 Knesset members (two-thirds) to repeal it.

In other words, convicted terrorists like Samir Kuntar (Hezbollah) and Marwan Barghouti (Fatah) would have a better chance of getting out of prison than Yigal Amir (Rabin's assassin) Amir killed only one person, unlike Kuntar and Barghouti.

Not only that, but Cabel's bill would intrude on the power of the president to grant pardons. Unlike the US, Israel does not have a strict separation of powers, and the Knesset can decide how much power the President may have.

You can rest in peace, Rabin, as legislators continue to undermine democracy in your name.

Thanks for the very informative comment.
Rabin, dead, is even more dangerous than he had been alive.
