For many Israelis, the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995 marked a grim turning point for their country. In the words of the commission set up to investigate the murder, "Israeli society [would] never be the same again. As a democracy, political assassination was not part of our culture." In the eyes of even more people, the murder ended all hope for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process through the Oslo Accords and altered the course of history. But, as Amos Gitai sets out to prove in his brave and provocative new film, Rabin's assassination was not just the act of one fanatic; it was the culmination of a hate campaign that emanated from the rabbis and public figures of Israel's far right.

Amazing story... ( English subtitled) and the story is at once moving and tragic. Rabin was the right man for the times and just so sad he did not get to fulfill his mission of bringing peace to the Palestinian people and the Israelis! Conspiracy theories abound by the time the movie ends..... well worth witching!

This is as pointed out by others a timely story. It forcefully points out that the rhetoric of extremists can find fertile ground with some who are convinced that the killing of others are justified. In this case it was an extremist killing the the Prime Minister of Israel and justifying it on religious grounds. We had seen this before with the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. There are numerous examples of such actions in our present times.
This film is worth seeing and hopefully we take seriously the rhetoric of those on the fringe.
