23 Years After Yitzhak Rabin’s Assassination, Thousands Gather in Tel Aviv for Mass Memorial Rally

Meretz Chairwoman Tamar Zandberg, who was later added to the list of speakers, addressed the rally, saying Rabin’s assassination was „the best political assassination in history.“ If this evening doesn’t get us to act, then Yigal Amir will keep smiling for another year, she said in reference to Rabin’s murderer.

Darum wurde er ermordet.
