News Analysis: Rabin's legacy seen as still influential in Israel


09:18, November 14, 2011

JERUSALEM, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- Some 10,000 people gathered on Saturday evening to commemorate the assassination of former Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin at a square in central Tel Aviv that now bears his name.

Rabin was killed 16 years ago at a massive rally in support of the Oslo Accords, by a Jewish extremist who was quickly apprehended and is now serving a life term in prison.

One year prior to his death, Rabin signed the Oslo agreement on the lawn of the White House together with current Israeli President Shimon Peres and former Palestinian National Authority President Yasser Arafat.

The three were awarded the Nobel peace prize for their efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

While Rabin had a long military career then started even before the state of Israel was established, today he is by most remembered as a peace maker.
