Former US president Bill Clinton, who arrived in Israel Saturday on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Yitzhak Rabin's assassination, said that he and his family "have come here, to a place we love, to honor the memory of a man I still miss...Not a week has past since that I haven't thought of him." Speaking at Jerusalem's King David Hotel as part of the Saban Forum for Israel-US dialogue, Clinton advised Israelis to "do what Jews have done throughout history: Grieve, laugh, remember that God gives no guarantees, and get back to greening the desert of despair, one tree at a time."
