Remembering Rabin

In this eloquent article, President Clinton remembers Yitzak Rabin. Fifteen years ago today, Prime Minister Rabin was murdered for giving peace a chance. I hope that Palestinian and Israeli officials will remember Rabin, and take to heart what it means to be a true leader. Power brings with it responsibility, and continuing the conflict is nothing but irresponsible. I have very little respect for individuals in power who shy from making tough decisions. They aren’t leaders, they are politicians. Rabin was a leader, one who ultimately paid the highest price for prioritizing peace. Let us hope that Palestinians and Israelis will find some true leaders who are willing to step up to the plate, make unpopular decisions, and forge ahead in creating a sustainable and just peace.
