Rabin was “Close to Stopping the Oslo Process”

Oct 18, 2013

Leave a Comment

Rabin’s true legacy is Israel’s struggle for secure and defensible borders, and great wariness of Palestinian statehood. The use of Rabin’s name to support a galloping-forward pro-Palestinian-state peace process – is left-wing historical revisionism.
