Is history about to repeat itself? Will the upcoming Israeli elections manage to escape from the clutches of Shimon Peres' again? Can lightning strike twice? Remember, Shimon Peres incredibly lost the race to become the leader of the Labor Party to Amir Peretz due, in large part, to growing concerns and legitimate questions about his involvement in the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin and the subsequent government cover-up.
As duly noted by Reuven A. Kossover at Blog Critics and at Jewish Indianapolis, and widely distributed by the highly respectable Jerusalem-based Root and Branch Association's Information Services:
"Around the time of the primaries, the Labor hacks waved the bloody shirt of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995. News started to leak that the man convicted of the crime, Yigal Amir, actually had shot blanks at Rabin and that the murder had been the work of the General Security Service (Sherutei Bitachon Klali -- Shabak) agents -- who were in the pay of Peres, a Rabin rival. The news was just enough to defeat Peres in the election, and Peretz, a fellow familiar for his continual strikes to protect Histadrut control over pension funds, was now leader of the Labor Party."
As the political stakes are raised and the heat is on, will the "bloody shirt" of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin get laundered in public again? Will the Kempler video become an international hit? Will those who are engaged in the historic campaign seeking justice for Rabin agitate enough national and international attention to insure that the real killers get brought to trial? (1500 posters have been strategically placed throughout Jerusalem and Tel Aviv airing these grievances).
And shouldn't reporters question why the Labor informers who leaked the news before the Labor primary (that stooge Yigal Amir shot blanks from a sterile area and Shimon Peres was part of the staged event) didn't follow through with any demands for a new investigation and failed to insist Israel must reopen the Rabin File? Could this dereliction of duty, this possible criminal neglect to pursue the matter backfire on those who would indict "the man who would be king?" (especially since it's believed the Vatican promises Peres a place in the "New Jerusalem" under "international control").
The Israeli political atmosphere is definitely charged and short fuses are sure to be blown, as is the cover of many who have gotten away with murder for too long. Rabin's blood cries out for justice! If indeed Shimon Peres came to power over Rabin's dead body, as publicly charged by David Rutstein and Barry Chamish without getting sued, it's past time for Israel to clean up their act and let Zion be redeemed with justice.
