No Path Without Pain

Amal Remembers Yitzhak Rabin and His Struggle for Peace



Although Yitzhak Rabin spent much of his life at war, he spent the last years of his
life in a struggle for peace. "There is no path that is without pain", he declared
in his last speech . "I fought so long as there was no chance for peace. I believe
that there is now a chance for peace, a great chance. We must take advantage of
it...". Using John Lennon's famous words "give peace a chance" Rabin went on to
say that there are many difficulties and pain on the way to peace, but that "the path of
peace is preferable to the path of war." How his speech seemed to foreshadow his
fate: the pain he must have felt as the bullets from the gun of a fellow Jew went
through his body on the night of the biggest peace rally ever held in Tel Aviv.
