Fulfilling the Legacy of Yitzhak Rabin z"l

On 3/11/2009 "Peace Now" will hold a rally in LA entitled "Fulfill the Peace Legacy of Yitzhak Rabin"

Martin Sherman draws attention to the following from Yitzhak Rabin's last address to the Knesset (Oct 5, 1995):

... The borders of the State of Israel, during the permanent solution, will be beyond the lines which existed before the Six Day War. We will not return to the 4 June 1967 lines.

And these are the main changes, not all of them, which we envision and want in the permanent solution:

A. First and foremost, united Jerusalem, which will include both Ma'ale Adumim and Givat Ze'ev - as the capital of Israel, under Israeli sovereignty, while preserving the rights of the members of the other faiths, Christianity and Islam, to freedom of access and freedom of worship in their holy places, according to the customs of their faiths.

B. The security border of the State of Israel will be located in the Jordan Valley, in the broadest meaning of that term.

C. Changes which will include the addition of [the settlements] Gush Etzion, Efrat, Beitar and other communities, most of which are in the area east of what was the "Green Line" prior to the Six-Day War.

D. The establishment of blocs of settlements in Judea and Samaria, like the one in Gush Katif...

Does "Peace Now" really endorse the vision that Rabin articulated shortly before his assassination.

Are they really planning to preserve it ... ?
