Netanyahu: Yitzhak Rabin Was Mistaken but Not a Traitor

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu emphasized that Yitzhak Rabin made a mistake by signing the Oslo Accords with the Palestinians but qualified that the former premier was “not a traitor.” Netanyahu, speaking at an annual event commemorating Rabin’s murder by a Jewish right-wing extremist, recalled the societal fracture caused by the decision in 1993 to embark on a peace process whose end-goal was the establishment of Palestinian autonomy in parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. (Notably, Rabin was not a proponent of what has become known as the “two-state solution,” and instead envisioned the creation of a self-governing Palestinian “entity”). Following Rabin’s assassination in 1995, some assigned blame to Netanyahu, accusing him of inciting violence through inflammatory rhetoric against the peace agreement. While Netanyahu has long rejected the allegation, in his speech on Sunday he conceded that amid the then-heated political climate he had “stood to the side – I was silent and did not respond. At times,” he added, “I even encouraged it.”
