President Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton inscribed the following words in the condolence book at the Israeli Embassy today in memory of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin:
Prime Minister Rabin gave his life to Israel, first as a soldier for its freedom, then finally as a martyr for its lasting peace.
For his example, his friendship to the United States, and his warm friendship to me, I am eternally grateful.

God bless Prime Minister Rabin, the people of Israel and all who take risks for peace.
