A Mandate for Murder

The story of one of the most shocking political assassinations of the modern age, told for the first time through the intelligence reports that predated – and predicted – the violence to come.

On November 4, 1995, decades of fierce political conflict culminated in the violent assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

As the shock subsided and a nation mourned, hard questions began to surface – questions like how could this happen? Why? And perhaps most importantly – could it have been prevented?

For the first time, a troubling story of institutional incitement and deliberate escalation is revealed by a senior Israeli ISA officer who feared the worst – and was powerless to stop it.

Through detailed intelligence reports, pointed warnings and misleading information, former head of the ISA non-Arab subversion and espionage division, Hezi Kalo, unravels the years of anger and hatred that bred a remorseless killer, and the false sense of security that paved the way to tragedy.
