An Israeli court postponed the jailhouse wedding of Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin. Tel Aviv District Court on Thursday scheduled another discussion on whether Yigal Amir, who is serving a life sentence in solitary confinement for the 1995 murder of the Israeli prime minister, can get married April 17. His fiancee, Larissa Trimbobler, had hoped the nuptials might go ahead Thursday. “I hope this issue does not become politicized,” she told reporters, clutching a wedding ring she brought for the occasion. Amir says the law guarantees him conjugal rights, but the Prisons Service has been reluctant to permit the wedding given public anger over Rabin’s assassination.
