STATEMENT OF THE AMERICAN JEWISH CONGRESS ON THE ASSASSINATION OF YITZHAK RABIN

The American Jewish Congress today issued the following statement:

" Yitzhak Rabin, one of Israel's most visionary leaders, tonight gave his life for the cause of peace. We will do everything in our power to deny the apparent assassin his ultimate goal -- an end to the peace process and another generation of hatred and war in the Middle East.

We share with Prime Minister Rabin's family, the people of Israel, and Jews around the world a most profound sense of loss, of grief, and of anger.

A hero on the battlefield, Yitzhak Rabin dedicated his life to the protection and security of the people of Israel. A warrior when necessary, a leader always, and a peacemaker to the end, his absence will be profound."

Phil Baum Executive Director

David V. Kahn President
