In November 1995, the Middle East Peace Process came to an abrupt halt when Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.  Two years before his death, Rabin had brokered a peace deal with PLO leader Yasser Arafat that would lead to Israel's withdrawal from the occupied territories. 

25 year old right wing Jew Yigal Amir along with occupiers and other extremists were against the plan.  Amir decided the only way to stop it from moving forward was to kill Prime Minister Rabin.
