      SOS-Israel, headed by Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpe and Baruch Marzel, held a small alternative ceremony Thursday dedicated to the memory of slain prime minister Yitzchak Rabin and to the 1,000 people murdered as a result of the “Oslo process” which he adopted.

      Shai Gefen, one of the organizers, told Arutz Sheva: "Today we lit candles to the memory of the 1,000 people murdered following the Oslo accords, and one candle to the memory of Yitzchak Rabin of Blessed Memory. We will not agree to participate in the Rabin carnival that takes place every year at this date. The incitement against the Right does not stop.”

      Baruch Marzel said at the ceremony: “We do not think that problems relating to public affairs can be solved with handguns, force and violence, or G-d forbid murder. One does not murder political rivals. We need to remember that Rabin did much for the State of Israel... He expelled more Arabs than Rabbi Kahane ever did -- from Lod, Ramle, the Negev and other places.”

      Tiran Pollak, who lost two sisters in a terror attack, said: “Thousands of families lost their loved ones. Who is responsible for this blood? Their blood is also red, it is no different from anyone else's. People keep talking about the Rabin legacy. What legacy? We lost 1,000 souls following the Oslo accords.”

      The Oslo process legitimized the PLO and allowed its leadership and gunmen into Yehudah (Judea), Shomron (Samaria) and Gaza. The PLO terrorists were allowed to arm themselves and they proceeded to use these arms to murder Jews throughout Israel. The terror wave was most murderous in the years 2000 to 2003, during which it was not uncommon for dozens of Jewish civilians to be murdered in the course of a few days.
