Yitzchak Rabin

Dovbear has a selected reading from Yitzchak Rabin. I tool the liberty of integrating my comments into the text:

We are destined to live together on the same soil, in the same land.

My version says: "They are a nation that will dwell alone and not be counted among the nations"

We, the soldiers who have returned from battle stained with blood, we who have seen our relatives and friends killed before our eyes, we who have attended their funerals and cannot look into the eyes of their parents, we who have come from a land where parents bury their children

But we can look into the eyes of the children of the Jews we killed in cold blood when I commanded the attack on the Altalena. Also we don't really care so much about the victims of terror that will suffer from all the weapons and training we will give you.

we who have fought against you, the Palestinians - We say to you today in a loud and a clear voice: Enough of blood and tears. Enough.

Enough of your blood and tears, that is. You can still kill us as much as you like and we will just continue to give you our land.

We have no desire for revenge.

Yes we do.

We harbor no hatred towards you.

Yes we do.

We, like you, are people who want to build a home, to plant a tree, to love, to live side by side with you in dignity, in empathy, as human beings, as free men.

I guess we forgot the whole Malchut Hashem bit. What is the point in establishing a 3rd rate version of America in the Holy Land. If that is what I wanted, I would just live in America.

We are today giving peace a chance, and saying again to you: Enough.

And you better take it because I had to bribe several Knesset members to get this suicide pact through our "democratic" institutions.
