Leah Rabin Attacks JFK Jr. Over Publication of Interview With Mother of Late PM's Assassin

"How could he, of all people, do this?"

The late Prime Minister’s widow, Leah Rabin, yesterday attacked John Kennedy junior for allowing his magazine "George" to publish the story of the mother of Yigal Amir, her husband’s assassin.

"How could he, of all people, do this?" said Leah Rabin of President John Kennedy’s son, and added: "Maybe he needs a sensational story to sell his magazine better."

The March edition of "George" included a long article about Geula Amir, who claimed that her son, Yigal Amir, was led on to murder Rabin on 4 November ’95 by a Security Service secret agent.

Kennedy is the editor of "George", a political magazine. He said that Amir’s family contacted the magazine last year in the hope that "my family’s history will endow its case with greater interest." Kennedy stated that indeed "the article did not examine objectively the events surrounding Rabin’s murder."

"I would have expected John Kennedy, who lost his father to an assassin’s bullets, to adopt higher standards in his publication" said Leah Rabin.
