Assassination in Tel Aviv Prime Minister, Defence Minister And Nobel Prize Laureate, Yitzhak Rabin

We grieve.

In the stunned shock following the horrific assassination of our Prime Minister and peace-maker, Yitzhak Rabin, we feel bereft of a figure of great political stature, a statesman of our generations. The realization also dawns as to the enormity of the terrible crime that has been committed - not by an Arab terrorist, but by an "unaffiliated" young Israeli - and of the pressing need for us all to reflect on where we are going and how to respect one another's views in a democratic manner.
