Description

"It is our wish to open a new chapter in the history of the Middle East"

TLS signed “Y. Rabin,” one page, 8.25 x 11.75, Israeli Prime Minister letterhead, November 7, 1993. Letter to Thomas Aaron Rabins, in part: "Your message of support for the Declaration of Principles and the Agreement of Mutual Recognition, signed between Israel and the Palestinians is truly appreciated. Israel has taken considerable risks in order to create an opportunity for peace and to put an end to violence and war. It is our wish to open a new chapter in the history of the Middle East—a chapter of mutual recognition, good neighborliness, mutual respect and understanding. We hope we have begun a new era in relations between peoples everywhere. From Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel and the Jewish people, in the language of the Bible, we say, 'Peace, peace to him who is afar and to him who is near.'" In fine condition, with light creasing along the left edge.
