Yahrzeit of Rachel Imenu


The Yahrzeit of Rachel Imenu (our foremother Rachel) today causes thousands of Jews to visit her grave near Bethlem.

Another Yahrzeit being celebrated in Israel today is the one of former Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin who was assassinated 14 years ago. 
I am not at all in favour of the killer Yigal Amir nor to I believe that anything can justify the killing. Although it is sad that Rabin was murdered, we shouldn't forget that Rachel Imenu is slightly more important than the one of a policitian who, in the end, cause Israel severe damages in regard of its own security. Giving up land and handing over weapons to our Palestinian enemy is anything but a peace solution.
