Theo van Gogh ( 1957-2004 )
Yitzhak Rabin ( 1922-1995 )

Today two years ago ( according to the 'regular', i.e. Gregorian, calendar ) Theo van Gogh was murdered in Amsterdam by a fanatical Muslim. A not less fanatical Jew murdered Israel's Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin eleven years ago according to the Hebrew calendar ( the official day of remembrance is today-tomorrow, because the Hebrew date falls on shabbat this year ). On a more cheerful note, today one of our sons celebrates his fourth birthday, and around noon our other son will have his brith.
