Rabin Square

Click photo to enlarge

This square used to be called the Kings of Israel square. Until the famous peace rally of 4 November 1995, where (at the end of the peace rally) Israel's then Prime Minister, Itzhak Rabin, was assassinated by a Jewish extremist. It was then renamed to Rabin Square. Rabin Square is in the heart of Tel Aviv and is still a popular place for political rallies.

I like the olive tree in the middle of the square - a reminder that there is always hope for peace.

That is an interesting tree in the middle of the square. It looks old but yet short.

Nice post and sentiment. The olive tree seems very old. It was a shocking and sad time when Rabin was assassinated.

I remember that shocking day very well and the public statements made by his lovely family. I'm glad to see the memorial square. Thanks!

I've been there, and I think you must be post others pictures, with deferents views. The heart of the city isn't extremist, but some groups can do the riot there.

That tree over there is something else. It looks pretty good and it is just small. A place that you want to sit.
