The government of Yitzhak Rabin explains all the murder and violence with a new cliche, "Victims of Peace." This is unacceptable.
By signing a peace treaty with Jordan, Rabin abrogates the hard-earned trust he built with Yasser Arafat. He gives the right of caring for the holy places to the king of Jordan, poking Arafat in the eye, along with telling him to deal with starving Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank. In the eyes of Hamas, Arafat has been diminished.
