Yesterday an auction was held at the Jerusalem of Gold auction house, where interesting items were sold for thousands of dollars. But then famed Israeli psychic Uri Geller, known for acts including bending spoons and describing hidden drawings, entered, seeking to buy the binoculars of the former Chief of Staff in the Six Day War, Yitzhak Rabin.
According to the auction house, “Uri Geller amazed us when he succeeded in buying the personal binoculars of Yitzhak Rabin. Uri Geller served under him as a soldier in the Six-Day War, and in fact bought the binoculars a few kilometers from where he was wounded on French Hill back in those days."
They added, "The reason Uri surprised us all was mainly because of the final price at which the binoculars were purchased, an event that was particularly dramatic because the binoculars were sold at the opening price, even though they are valued at 10 times more than that, and despite the great interest in the item. When it comes to unique items like these binoculars, there are many buyers competing to purchase them, and their price quickly jumps to the right price for such special objects. "
“Uri Geller is happy to buy Yitzhak Rabin's personal binoculars and plans to present them in the Uri Geller Museum soon to be built in Old Jaffa. "
