Dochter Rabin waarschuwt voor opruiing door extreemrechts

Laten we hopen dat Israelische politici sinds de moord op Rabin beter beveiligd worden, want de opruiing en dreigementen door extreemrechts zijn walgelijk en -letterlijk- levensgevaarlijk!

Rabin's daughter, 13 years on: Same incitement exists today
By Haaretz Service and The Associated Press
The daughter of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin warned on Tuesday, the 13th anniversary of his assassination, that the incitement by the extreme right that was prevalent in Israel 13 years ago still exists today.

"Today we are also hearing the same shrill voices, perhaps with different terminology, but it is impossible to ignore their intensity," said Dalia Rabin, speaking to Army Radio.

Israelis were set to mark Tuesday the anniversary of Rabin's death at the hands of an assassin opposed to his peace with a series of rallies across the country.

Attorney General Menachem Mazuz last week called for an incitement investigation against right-wing activists, hours they called for a "revenge attack" against Israeli security forces for evacuating an illegal West Bank outpost.

Later on Tuesday, Government officials were scheduled to attend a ceremony at Rabin's grave in Jerusalem.

A memorial rally will be held November 8 at the Tel Aviv square where Rabin was gunned down after a peace rally. It was renamed Rabin Square in his honor.

Yigal Amir shot Rabin three times on November 4, 1995. Amir wanted to stop the peace process Rabin initiated with the Palestinians.

On Sunday, the head of Shin Bet security service warned that extremist settlers might carry out another political assassination. Yuval Diskin said he was very concerned about the possibility.
