Yitzhak Rabin (יִצְחָק רַבִּין) (1922 - 1995) was the Labour Prime Minister of Israel from 1992-1995.


During the Second World War Rabin fought against the Vichy regime in Syria and Lebanon and after the beginning of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War he was responsible for the defense of Jerusalem. During the Six-Day War in 1967 Rabin was chief of staff of Israel’s army.[1]

He was instrumental in bringing about the Oslo Accords and due to their signing shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Shimon Peres and Yassir Arafat. During the peace process the Palestine Liberation Organization continued to hunt down and murder Palestinians who peacefully coexisted with Israel. Rabin believed that the peace agreements would results in the creation of an autonomous Palestinian governing authority instead of a state. However he wanted Jerusalem to remain solely under Israeli sovereignty.[2]

Rabin was assassinated in on November 4, 1995 by Yigal Amir, a right-wing Jewish Israeli law student because of his signing of the peace accords.[3]
