Rabin's Memorial: The New Wailing Wall?

Israel's police have opened an investigation into the alleged placing of "requests" on folded paper notes at the Yitzchak Rabin's Memorial in Rabin Square -- perhaps similar to the ones at Jerusalem's Wailing Wall.

The Tel-Aviv Crime Scene Investigation Unit is examining the note to determine exactly what was written on it.

As a result of the note incident, there is now heightened security around the Rabin Memorial.

You just can't make this stuff up. Source here in Hebrew at Tel Aviv Police Website.

Wait, why are police so involved with these notes?

reminds me of a joke:
What's the reason they increased security at the Rebbe's Ohel?
-There were assassination threats

News flash: tefilles ha geshem means prayers for RAIN - not prayers for Rabin.

Shee, next thing you know they'll be saying that on the third day he got up and had a bagel!

I don't know what's more pitiful: the Rabin veneration, or the Peres self-veneration.

Only in Israel can a note be seen as a security threat.

How do you know the guy in the picture isn't doing push ups, perhaps preparing to enter Tza'hal?

And that's appropriate?

An IDF soldier was sentenced today to 21 days in a military jail for yawning during the Rabin Memorial Ceremony a few days ago...
