Quote of the decade
"Stop being afraid. There is no danger that these guns will be used against us. The purpose of this ammunition for the Palestinian police is to be used in their vigilant fight against the Hamas. They won't dream of using it against us, since they know very well that if they use these guns against us once, at that moment the Oslo Accord will be annulled and the IDF will return to all the places that have been given to them. the Oslo Accord, despite what the opposition claims, is not irrevocable."
- -Yitzhak Rabin, March, 1994 on Mabat ITV, Channel One.
This and many similar remarks have mysteriously been erased or "disappeared" from Israel TV archives. How convenient.
