The right-wing Hebrew-language Arutz Sheva website on Monday launched a competition to mark the anniversary of Yitzhak Rabin's 1995 assassination.

The contest promised to publish the "most interesting" theories that contradicted the official version of the killing.

Those who enter the competition have the opportunity to send in their conspiracy theories online in 9,000 characters or less. 

The website posted on the site an announcement say "Ahead of the 15th anniversary of the assassination we invite every single one of you who, in a hidden-away drawer, holds a theory that as far as he's concerned answers some, most, or all of the questions surrounding the Rabin assassination, to write it down, send it to us, and we'll publish the most interesting theories on one of the days close to the assassination anniversary, after stylistic editing by Arutz Sheva correspondent Shimon Cohen."

"If you belong to that segment of the population which, in every social or family gathering feels a need to lay out his Rabin assassination theory for everyone," the text reads, "if again and again you argue with acquaintances and thus come in for jugs of ridicule and insults, and are again and again dubbed delusional, just imagining, provocating, living in a dream world and all the other forms of high praise, then it's just for you that we're designating Arutz Sheva's next project - 'Who Murdered Rabin - Your Theory.'"
