Extremists Confront Rabin’s Granddaughter

Extreme right-wing activists clashed with the granddaughter of assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin at the end of an event marking the 20th anniversary of the second Rabin government.

Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir confronted Noa Rotman, the former Noa Ben-Artzi, in the parking lot of the Rabin Center in Jerusalem, where the former government ministers and spectators had gathered.

Marzel accused Rotman of getting rich off her grandfather for the reported $1 million she earned for writing her personal memoir about the slain Israeli leader. Rotman as a teenager had delivered a passionate and tearful eulogy at her grandfather’s funeral in November 1995.

Ben Gvir said arming Arab terrorists under the accords was a crime, as Rotman reminded him that Rabin’s assassination was a crime.

Rotman drove off in tears, according to reports.

During the second Rabin government in 1993, Israel signed the Oslo Accords with the Palestine Liberation Organization in Washington.
