I wish Rabinís killer long life... in jail

THE words of President John F Kennedy are still valid 59 years later: ďLet us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate.Ē

Letís remember that former Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin paid a terrible price to find a peaceful solution ó his life.

He was assassinated by Yigal Amir, a right-wing fanatic, probably a supporter of Benjamin Netanyahu. But what made this worse was that Amirís wife prayed that her husband would be released from jail soon.

I wish Amir a long life in jail.

He did break the sixth commandment ó thou shall not kill.
