While reading the Crazy Country blog recently I came across this quote from Yitzhak Rabin taken from a TV interview from a few days before his assassination on 1st November 1995. I thought it tied together my two recent blog posts nicely...

- Host: Mr. Prime Minister, your government relies for its parliamentary majority on the vote of Arab Knesset Members. Also in order to approve the Oslo II Agreement you relied on such a majority. How do you answer those who say that a government which relies on Arabs is not legitimate?

- Yitzhak Rabin: (angrily) Anyone who says that is a racist.
