On Saturday night Nov. 12th, 2005, I was in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv and attended the memorial event, which was held ten years after Itzhak Rabin's murder at the same place. About the event itself including the music and speeches - especially the speech by Bill Clinton, the USA President during Itzhak Rabin's 2nd reign as Prime Minister - other and better people than me wrote. In view of my experience with the poor accessibility to the deaf of Rabin's funeral broadcast ten years ago, I decided to see and report on the current accessibility situation.

I wrote the following article shortly after the end of the TV broadcast of Itzhak Rabin's funeral, ten years ago. Ten years later, more attention is given to the issue of accessibility, so Itzhak Rabin's memorial event of Nov. 12th, 2005 was more accessible to the Deaf.

First of all, I wish to present condolances to the Rabin family and everyone else, who was touched by Itzhak Rabin's murder.

Secondly, I want to make all of you aware of the spitting in the face which I received, as Deaf, from the Israeli Broadcasting Authority and from the 2nd channel authority.
