Ahead of the anniversary of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s murder, there were those who claimed that the assassination had led to the moral corruption and growing violence in the Israeli society. Former Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau and two of Israel’s leading sociologists disagree.

Arye Rattner, a professor of sociology and criminology at Haifa University, holds a similar opinion – backed by more than 10 years of research. His studies contradict the atmosphere of reconciliation claimed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the state ceremony in Rabin’s memory.

“I think that Rabin’s murder sharpened, very clearly, an ideological and religious rift,” he says, adding that this is the biggest schism of our time – more than the national split, the Jewish-Arab conflict or the ethnic rift.
