On November 4, 1995, after a demonstration held in support of the Oslo Accords, held in Tel Aviv's "Kings of Israel Square" (Kikar Malkhey Yisrael כיכר מלכי ישראל, now "Rabin Square" - Kikar Rabin כיכר רבין), Amir awaited Rabin in the parking lot adjacent the square, close to Rabin's official limousine, where he shot Rabin twice with a Beretta 84F semi-automatic pistol in .380 ACP caliber (serial number D98231Y). During the act, Amir also injured Yoram Rubin, a security guard, with another shot.

the circumcision of Yigal Amir's (the assassin of Yitzak Rabin) newborn son is to fall precisely on the 12th anniversary of the November 4 assassination of Yitzhak Rabin.

There is Larissa Trimbobler, who plays the beloved if dubious Sarah to Yigal Amir's Shabtai Zvi. Trimbobler's stated intention to someday tell her son, not that his lifer father Yigal was a murderer, but that he "sacrificed himself for his people."

the hilltop hopheads, the gunslinger grunge and grange society of the wild West Bank, the Kahane worshippers, the Muslim-baiters dance and rejoice
