Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel crossed a major political divide, visiting the Yitzhak Rabin Center in Tel Aviv on Friday.

Ariel is the chairman of Tkuma, the right-flank of Bayit Yehudi, and was a vocal opponent of the Oslo Accords signed when Rabin was premier, and was secretary-general of the Yesha Council when Rabin was assassinated, over 20 years ago.

"Every Israeli citizen should come here to learn and teach how to peacefully preserve and act on democracy," Ariel wrote in the Rabin Center's guestbook.

Following the visit, Ariel said young people who do not remember Rabin should visit the center and learn what happened.

"I knew Rabin as defense minister and prime minister, and there were times in which we agreed and times of serious divisions," Ariel recounted. "We can argue, but have mutual respect and appreciation, and know that we will continue building the State of Israel and the Jewish People together."

The minister met with Rabin's daughter and chairwoman of the center, Dalia, who said it is unfortunate that religious Zionist schools do not visit the museum.

"After a 20-year disconnect with the religious-Zionist public, the reality has changed and we should open a new page," she said.
