Here is an interesting commentary from Uri Avnery:
After commenting on most of the episodes on the first Israeli Prime Ministers in Raviv Drucker’s TV series "The Captains", I must come back to the one whose episode I have not yet covered: Yitzhak Rabin.
Let me state right from the beginning: I liked the man.
He was a man after my own heart: honest, logical, straightforward, to the point.
No nonsense, no small talk. You entered his room, he poured you a straight whisky (seemed to me he detested water), got you seated, and asked a question that compelled you to come straight to the point.
How refreshing, compared to other politicians. But Rabin was no real politician. He was a military man through and through. He was also the man who could have changed the history of Israel.
That is why he was murdered.
The final scene: the assassin stood at the foot of the stairs, the pistol in his hand, waiting for Rabin to come down. But first came Peres.
The murderer let him pass unharmed – the ultimate insult.
You can read the rest @
Or perhaps Perez was positioning himself as someone allied with Rabin and therefore not to be a suspect in his murder.
Anyone who tries to make peace with the Palestinians will be murdered by Israel. That is a fact of life.
The real question is this - will those murders be G-d's will, or just the crimes of evil men?
