Mr. Speaker, when a man of war becomes a general of peace, we have surely witnessed a miracle. When a man can turn a hawk into a dove, we have surely witnessed a miracle. When a man can learn to give instead of take, we have surely witnessed a miracle.
This miracle will be remembered as Yitzhak Rabin. The history he has written will become a beacon of hope, a symbol of peace, a miracle of humanity for all the world to share.
As but one who has watched his leadership and listened to his words, I share the grief, I feel the sorrow and I know we have lost someone rare.
