While Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is often mentioned in connection with incitement against former premier Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995, the role of other politicians has been forgotten, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin told Israel Radio on Wednesday. Memorial ceremonies marking 14 years since Rabin's assassination will be held throughout Israel on Thursday. "Over the years, a historical Photoshop [rendition] has erased from the public memory figures that were prominent in their protest against Yitzhak Rabin. While no one will forget Prime Minister Netanyahu's photo at Zion Square, people such as [former premiers] Ariel Sharon, Ehud Olmert and [MK] Tzahi Hanegbi have become the public's darlings," said Rivlin. Rivlin was referring to a photograph of Netanyahu, then the Likud leader, at the infamous Zion Square rally in Jerusalem where Rabin was called a traitor.
