Topic: Rabin's murderer.


I just saw something about Rabin's killer on TV. He's in prison for life in Israel and now he want's to get married. As I understand it, this is a normal request for a prisoner in Israel. Now his request is denied, because if he gets married, he would be allowed to "consumate the marriage" and that would be a security risk. I'm not sure this story is correct, so I'd like Sherman105 to tell me if this story is true. If it is, I wonder if it is possible to deny him something every other prisoner in Isreal can do? Don't get me wrong, I don't like the guy, but if it is his right (that's what they said on tv here), I'd say he shouldn't be an exeption.

Yes, you are almost correct....
Rabbins killer was sentenced to life sentece without option of a pardon. He now wishes to marry, but hes request was denied. The reason is the he is not cconsiderd a normal prisoner, but what we call a "security-prisoner, that is he is considerd a risk to national security(same as the terrorists israel arrests...). Alos, he is a max-security prisoner, so he is not allowed to leave his cell....Hes cell is constantly viewed by 3 video cams, so to consumate the marriage would be imposible. Acctually, im pleasesd they found a leagle way to make him misrable. I hate that facist sob, and Im still sorry that Rabins security men did not kill this guy on the spot.

Sure. In 1992 Rabbin was elected prime-minister. Rabbin was the head of the Avoda(Labor) left wing party. He reached the coclusion that the only way to stop the uprising in the territorys is by negotiations with the PLO. By 1994 Rabin sighned a peace treaty with Yasser Arafat, head of the PLO, a man responsible for the deaths of 100s of Israeli citizens. The Treaty called for the removal of Israeli settelments from the occupied territorys. The Right winged partys were outraged. Rabin was called a traitor, "pictures" of him in SS uniformes were carried by protestors. The fundamentalist rabbies in Israel stated that he should be killed. On 4th of November 1995, while leaving a pro-peace assambly Rabbin was assisnated by a lone gunner, Ygal Amir. Amir was religous right winger from the territories. He was convicted and sentenced to life, without pardon. Amir never regreted his act, and smiled trough the whole trial.

Why wasn't he executed? Assassinating a prime minster and getting life in prison?

Don't think they have a death penalty in Israel. And from what I saw on tv I understand that this women has been visiting him for the last 3 years, so she met him while he was in jail. Is that possible?

Well how different Israel is, I mean than all those countries around it. You guys must feel really isolated. I know i'm going a little bit with this but you know Israel ROCKS anyways.
Apart fron the law allowing detainees to lay down with their wives.

Well, only two people were ever executed in Israel. One was a Ltc accused of treason in 1948(and was later found inoccent... ), and the other was Adolf Eichman(dont know hwo to write that), a nazi war criminal. Now, The Ltc was sentenced by a military court, so that dose not count. In civilian law in Israel death sentence is only possible for for Nzi war criminals and their assitnts.
