Almost one in three Israelis would support seeing Yitzhak Rabin’s jailed assassin going free one day, a poll found. According to the survey published over the weekend by Yediot Achronot, 5 percent of Israelis would like Yigal Amir to be granted clemency now, while another 25 percent would favor him being freed in 25 years.

Support for clemency was stronger among right-wingers and religious Jews.
