FP_20170303_yitzhak_rabin_coverOn March 9, the Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings hosted an event featuring Brookings distinguished fellow, Israeli Institute President, and former Israeli ambassador to the United States, Itamar Rabinovich whose new book, “Yitzhak Rabin: Soldier, Leader, Statesman” (Yale University Press, February 2017) recounts the late Israeli prime minister’s rise through Israel’s military and political ranks.

Experts reflected upon Rabin’s relationships with global leaders, including President Bill Clinton; his efforts to bring about an Israeli-Palestinian peace; and the ramifications of his tragic assassination on the peace process. As a close aide to Prime Minister Rabin, Ambassador Rabinovich offered original research and new insights into the life and legacy of this revered warrior-statesman.

The program began with featured remarks by President Bill Clinton. Afterwards, Brookings Executive Vice President Martin Indyk moderated a conversation between Ambassador Rabinovich and Dalia Rabin, the late Prime Minister Rabin’s daughter and former Member of Knesset.
