FOR THE PAST TWO weeks, the country has once again been in an uproar over the slain leader. Twenty-two years after his murder, the annual memorial rally for Yitzhak Rabin continues to spark bitter disagreements – most of them fabricated, almost all of them over trivialities.

For a week, people argued over the omission of the word “murder” from the advertisements; another week was devoted to battling the fact that a settler had been invited. A political movement that never raised a finger against the settlements woke up for a moment and fought against a settler’s speech. A rally that was never important or influential has become a national event.
