Despite being a former army general, Rabin recognized the importance of peace and the two-state solution, said Labor head Shelly Yacimovich at the party's Central Committee meeting on Tuesday.

The Labor leader's speech at the Central Committee meeting focused on the legacy of former prime minister and Labor head Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995 by Yigal Amir.

Yacimovich said that Rabin wasn't a romantic when it came to peace, and that while he probably was not happy to shake former Palestinian Authority president Yasser Arafat's hand, he chose the path of peace over the path of war.
