Perhaps the most disturbing bumper sticker that has evolved from "Shalom Haver" is the one that says "It's all your fault, friend" ("Hakol biglalha, haver").

People who can blame Rabin for starting the Intifada are the same kind of people who hated him for being the first Israeli leader to make a real effort towards peace with the Palestinians - the same kind of people who led to his assassination in the first place.

There are still people in Israel who see nothing wrong with killing a prime minister for contradicting their political beliefs, especially if some kind of made-up religious border (such as the handing over of parts of the historical Eretz Israel to Palestinian control) is crossed.

Such is life in a country dominated by violence and death... But I love Israel. I have no other country.
