President Shimon Peres eulogized assassinated prime minister Yitzhak Rabin on Wednesday, commemorating his contribution to the nation and the untimely nature of his death.

"We will not forget that you were murdered. You were murdered by an evil man who planned to kill the nation's spirit," Peres said, addressing Rabin. "Your legacy, Yitzhak, was the contribution of a statesman truly leading a nation: not to look back in rage, but forward with faith. You earned the faith of a nation."
