Fifteen years after former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin was shot by Yigal Amir a number of Knesset members and prominent religious leaders have begun a campaign to retroactively acquit Margalit Har-Shefi, Amir's girlfriend.

Har-Shefi was charged with failing to report Amir's intentions to carry out the murder.

Among those leading the campaign are MKs Otniel Schneller (Kadima) and Uri Ariel (National Union) as well as Rabbis Yuval Sherlo and Yaakov Meidan.
