Peretz, Clinton to speak at Rabin rally

New Labor Party head Amir Peretz invited by Dalia Rabin to speak at Tel Aviv rally to mark ten years since assassination of Yizhak Rabin; at 21:42 a siren of mourning will be heard throughout the Square; Clinton to address rally Ynet Over one hundred thousand people are expected to attend a rally in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square to mark the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The rally will begin at 20:30 Israel time with the broadcast of Rabin’s last speech, in which he spoke out for peace and against violence, on November 4 1995, one hour before being shot in the back by assassin Yigal Amir. Politicians and religious leaders will address the rally, including former U.S. president Bill Clinton, and newly elected Labor Party Chairman Amir Peretz, who was invited to speak by Dalia Rabin (Rabin’s daughter). Several artists will take part in the event, many of whom were present at a rally in the same location ten years ago attended by Rabin. Roads near the Square are already closed off, and will remain sealed until the end of the event. The stage at the Square has been rebuilt and made to exactly as it did on the eve of the murder in 1995. Tonight, Miri Aloni will sing „A song for peace,” as she did ten years ago. A lone microphone will be positioned where Rabin stood a decade ago. Aharaon Barnae, who reported on national television on the death Rabin with a chocked voice, will host the event, which will see Vice Premier Shimon Peres, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, and Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai, among others, address the crowd.
