Sa'ar: Rabin Legacy - United Jerusalem


Education Minister Gid'on Sa'ar told a youth memorial observance for assassinated prime minister Yitzchak Rabin on Sunday, "Since Rabin's murder, the perceptions and paths of Yitzchak Rabin have been and continue to be distorted. Thus, for example, Yitzchak Rabin did not support the establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria."

Sa'ar noted remarks made by Rabin in Washington, DC, ten days before the assassination: "In Israel, we don't have an argument on one topic: the completeness of Jerusalem and it continued basis as the capital of the state of Israel. There are not two Jerusalems. There is only one Jerusalem. As far as we're concerned, Jerusalem is not a matter for compromise - and there's no peace without Jerusalem."
