Images of the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin with Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, including the Oslo signing ceremony, were omitted from a biographical film screened at a memorial gathering organized by the Labor Party. Sources in the party said there was no directive from above to edit out the footage, but it was understood that in light of the ongoing violence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, it was preferable not to have prominent images of Arafat in the film, according to the Israeli daily Ma’ariv.
