Rabin's son will support Likud-led unity government

Yuval Rabin, son of assassinated prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, said that he would support a unity government headed by Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu. In a press conference held Monday Rabin said that although he planned to vote for Labor head Ehud Barak, "the opportunity for a strong Right wing government exists." Meretz activists responded by telling Rabin that his father would be turning over in his grave and that "the Left is ashamed of him."
