The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Dear readers,

Today the world remember once again the Legacy of Itzhak Rabin a leader the was misunderstood for his contemporaries,
who tried to prevent the current terrible crisis that middle east faces.

itzhak Rabin was a national Hero of Israel when he became Prime Minister, he had fought in all great wars of his country
since 1947.

Military cemeteries in every corner of the world are silent testimony to the failure of national leaders to sanctify human life. ” — Yitzhak Rabin, 1994 Nobel Peace Prize lecture

He was a patriot but he also knew that there was something wrong in to try to create a state by leaving another nation without
their land, True happiness, authentic peace and legit progress can't be build over others tragedy or injustice.

With this understanding that a cause can be only blessed when it is morally fair, not just when it is politically convenient,
he embraced a peace process that led him to a Nobel award.

He made the maximum personal sacrifice somebody can do to defend the cause of Peace, his life was taken a way cowardly
by a fanatic Zionist who never understood the point.

Israel never have had harmony since the peace process he and Yasser Arafat signed was sunk by the boycott from dark forces
of fundamentalism.

Any nation can be kidnapped by destructive attitudes if there is no courage to defend what it is right, the long term goal is
several times more important than any transitory apparent gain.

This thread points out to a very interesting dilemma in ethics of politics, the one to decide what is morally correct to
justify a cause solidly or to do just what is politically convenient to gain a partial and temporal battle on it.

Thanks for your attention,

Dear Readers,

Today, 21 years after the death of Izhak Rabin, the middle east is more messed than never before, included the turbulent years that preceded his government in Israel.

There is at present a thesis several times mentioned in the current Presidential campaign that the existence of a major threat for the peace of Middle east, the existence of ISIS, was caused by mistakes committed during the Obama Administration with respect to the revolutions on the Arab world that took place by 2010-11, however, those events have roots that clearly can be traced back to the Iraq war and moreover to the crisis that came under the Bush administration in between Israelians and Palestinians.

Please read:

The end of the Peace process started by Rabin and Arafat was responsibility of the systematic violation of the agreements by two radical and fundamentalist forces opposed to them: from one side Hamas, and from the other one the Likud party that decided that they were never going to tolerate the existence of a Palestinian State.

Izhak Rabin fell assassinated by a major political plot inside Israel, boosted by extremist orthodox Jewish Groups, that didn't want to accomplish the compromises of the Peace agreement to move out from their settlements in the west bank territories.

please check:

The death of Yasser Arafat was also the result of a military seige launched by the Likud administration against him, in order to kill the peace agreements.

All this situation finally helped a lot to boost the existence of ISIS, a group that is obsessed to carry on a Yihad against western influence in the middle east. Many of the important figures of ISIS came from supporters of Sadam Hussein, people that were displaced from power during the American invasion of that country.

Please read:

If Izhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat would have survived all these terrible events chances are that today we should have a very different picture of the middle east, one by sure more stable and probably in relative peace. The promising scenario of peace negotiation that once existed under the Clinton Administration was turned in to a terrible dark ugly nightmare under the Bush one.

Thanks for your attention.

a reply to: flatbush71

That is pretty interesting dear flatbush71,

I am under the impression that in that rally Rabin without really knowing made a speech that resulted into a prophetic one, he foresaw two paths at future to follow and the sequence of events that will be part of each one and also the consequences at future of the decision that was taking place that year.

Izhak Rabin, November 4th 1995, Kings of Israel square, Tel Aviv. :
I always believed that the majority of the people wants peace and are prepared to take risks for peace... people truly want peace and opposes violence. Violence is undermining the very foundations of Israel democracy. Violence musts be condemned, denounced and isolated, this is not the way of the State of Israel. Peace provides opportunities for a progressive society and economy.
..I want to say this clearly, we have found partnership for peace as well with the Palestinians, The PLO that was an enemy, and has ceased to engage in terrorism, without partners for peace there can't be peace.

Izhak Rabin was drastically and sadly misinterpreted by a collective way of thinking that was lacking of vision of future, of capacity to see that a state almost without allies or friends in the neighborhood,(at that time the only successful deal of Israel was with Egypt, but two other Arab nations wanted to improve relationships if peace can be agreed, Morocco and Jordan), was unavoidably destinated to have a so hard and extremely difficult future.

Other accurate prediction of Rabin was that the peace of Middle east represented the peace of the entire world, we are seeing how accurate was his intuition right now, when we have seen war after war expanding the complexity of an unsolved conflict, escalating military actions in a so impressive pace, when everytime it reproduces itself opening new battle fronts: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Ukraine, Belgium, France.

If the world and America in particular would have reacted with determination to block the arrival to power of the so irresponsible Likud administrations that followed the coup d'etat against izhak Rabin of 1995 is highly probable that we never would have seen the bombing of the world Trade center and the birth of ISIS.

The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Dear readers,

The election of Donald Trump as President of the USA is breaking al lot of paradigms, and since it is clear He is leading a kind of revolution against the political establishment it could be very interesting to see how this man is able to change the path of conflict that we have at present in Middle East.

He has already given some hints about what will be his approach toward ISIS , he wants quick solutions and also he is seriously considering to enhance the collaboration with Russia in Syria.

What remains still as a mystery is what is going to be his policy with respect to the Palestinian - Israelian conflict? if he is really willing to break the games of power we have seen in the world pushed by the interests of great corporations he probably will consider seriously to push a peace process in the Holy land.

Please check:

If that is the case the Oslo Agreements of 1996 are necessary the best model to follow and to rescue from all the previous attempts to bring Peace to that region.

Donald Trump has declared in the media during the campaign that he thinks the principal obstacle for peace now is the lack of commitment of the political establishment in Israel to accept a deal, something is not difficult to see if we check the way the Oslo Agreements were systematically boycotted by Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu administrations.

Donald Trump: A lot will have to do with Israel and whether or not Israel wants to make the deal — whether or not Israel's willing to sacrifice certain things. They may not be, and I understand that, and I'm OK with that. But then you're just not going to have a deal
