Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, formerly a feared adversary of the Arab states that surrounded and made war upon Israel, ultimately became the very symbol of peace in the last decade of the twentieth century. “One does not make peace with one’s friend,” he famously said, “one makes peace with one’s enemy,” an attitude that resulted in the ill-fated Oslo Accords of 1993 and, tragically, in his 1995 assassination at the hands of a Jewish extremist. Rabin’s life was inextricably bound with the relationship of Israel and its Arab neighbors.
