Coalition chairman: Rabin’s murder was not political

As Israelis prepare to gather Saturday night in Tel Aviv to attend a memorial ceremony in honor of late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated 21 years ago yesterday, coalition chairman MK David Bitan (Likud) stated that his killing was not a "political murder."

"I will not attend the rally tonight [Saturday] in memory of Yitzhak Rabin, it was not a political murder, politicians did not murder him," Bitan said at an event in Holon hours before the ceremony.
