Yitzhak Rabin, Israel’s prime minister, was assassinated on Nov 4, 1995, at the end of a peace rally for the Oslo Accords by a right winged extremist that opposed the Oslo Accords. His assassination shocked the nation that was unaccustomed and unprepared to political assassination.

Yitzhak Rabin started his career in the military. He served as general in Israel’s Independence War and as a Chief of Staff in the Six-Day War. In 1968 he served as Israel’s ambassador to the US. He served two terms as a prime minister: 1974–1977 and 1992-1995. His second term ended pre-maturely with his assassination. During this term he initiated the Oslo accords along with Shimon Peres and Yasser Arafat. The three of them were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their achievement.

In the Oslo Accords the PLO recognized Israel’s right to exist and committed to a peaceful solution to the Palenstinian – Israeli conflict. In return Israel recognized the PLO as the representative of the Palestinians and endorsed Palestinian self-rule in  Gaza and the West Bank.

The place of Rabin’s assassination, Tel Aviv’s city hall square, was renamed after him, Rabin’s square.
 Bill Clinton, US president at the time of the assassination, ended his remarks at Yitzhak’s Rabin’s funeral with the words: Shalom, Chaver Goodbye Friend. These words are now forever associated with Rabin’s memory.
