In October 1994, about a year after leaders of the government of Israel signed the Oslo Accords with the PLO, and soon after an attempt to rescue Cpl. Nachshon Wachsman, who had been kidnapped by Hamas, had failed, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin expressed his frustration to reporters.

Rabin acknowledged that Israel’s security agencies could not prevent every abduction of a soldier and every suicide bomber determined to kill civilians. And he declared that his country had to come to terms with relinquishing some of the land it had conquered in 1967.
