I know this is a bit late, but I thought it would be nice to bring up the memory of Yitzhak Rabin and the efforts at peace for which he died. By no means do I think he was perfect, yet it seems that so many of the positive steps Israel has taken were under his guidance, and so many of the disastrous ones were in his absence. I hate to say it, but looking at the past eight years, I think his assassin won. On a positive note, however, over 100,000 - a quarter the population of Tel Aviv - showed up for his memorial last week. People seeking peace on all sides of the Israel-Palestine dispute should take great encouragement from this.
