Rabin's granddaughter, 17-year-old
Noa Ben-Artzi, touched the hearts of
those who heard her moving remem-
brance ofa gentle man, a "private hero"
not visible to the outside world.
"Ones greater than I have eulogized
you, but none knew the softness of your
caress as I, or that half-smile of yours
that always said everything, the smile
that is no longer there," said the weep-
ing, auburn-hairedyoungwoman. "You
were, and still are, our own private
hero."
.Leaving the podium in tears, she was
-omforted by her brother, Yonatan,
ressed in a paratrooper's uniform and
reI beret.
Rabin, who led Israel to triumphs on
thebattlefield, then stretched out a hand
Of peace to his Arab neighbors, was
buried with full military honors in a
.pine glade atop a hill overlooking the
volatile city where he was born 73 years

ago.
His widow Leah, sitting in the first
row, wept through much of the cer-
emony, supported by her son, Yuval,
her daughter, Dalia, and her grandchil-
dren Noa and Yonathan.
Only once did a smile cross her face,
when President Clinton affectionately
recalled how Rabin, never one for for-
mality, had come to a black-tie dinner
in Washington without the black tie.
Clinton called Rabin "a martyr for
peace but ... a victim of hate."
Rabin's coffin was carried about 200
yards to the gravesite. A blue-and-white
flag with the Star of David was re-
moved from the casket, which was then
lowered into the grave.
Members of the burial society
scooped earth into containers and cov-
ered the casket.
A rabbi intoned the prayer, "God,
Full of Mercy."
Peres and other dignitaries put
wreaths at the grave, and hundreds of
Israelis left flowers and pebbles, a tra-
ditional Jewish mourning custom.

Hussein, Mubarak join mourners

Los Angeles Times
JERUSALEM - Of all the tributes
yesterday to Yitzhak Rabin's achieve-
ments, the most profound came not from
the rhetoric at the podium but from the
simple presence of Jordan's King
Hussein and Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak in this disputed holy city.
The two leaders and officials from
four other Arab countries, risking dis-
pleasure at home and throughout the
Arab world, ignored their long boycott
of Israeli-controlled Jerusalem to join
mourners here.
The moment was particularly poi-
gnant for Hussein. Yesterday marked
his first visit to Jerusalem since the
Rabin-led Israeli army captured the
eastern halfofthe cityinthe 1967 Arab-
Israeli War.
"I'm not ashamed. I'm not afraid,"
Hussein told the mourners. "I'm deter-

w

mined to fulfill the legacy for which my
friend fell, as did my grandfather in this
very city."
"As long as I live," Hussein said, "I
will be proud to have known him, to
have worked with him as a brother, as a
friend, and as a man."
Hussein's grandfather was assassinated
in 1951 on the Temple Mount by a lone
Palestinian gunman as his grandson
looked on. Some say Hussein himself,
then a teen-ager, was struck by a bullet
that ricocheted off a medal on his chest.
In all, representatives from six Arab
countries - including Oman, Qatar,
Morocco and Mauritania - attended
the funeral.
"I had to pinch myself to believe
what I am seeing," said government
spokesman Uri Dromi, noting the Arab
robes and headdresses that dotted the
rows of dignitaries.

JERUSALEM - Facing a judge for
the first time, law student Yigal Amir
yesterday again admitted killing Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin and let loose a
tirade of defiance.
"I didn't want to stop the peace pro-
cess, since there is no such concept as
the peace process" Amir said. "This is
a process of war."
Refusing a lawyer, he cited biblical
precedent for his action and said Rabin
was the target because he had left Jewish
settlers "at the mercy of armed terrorists"
in the occupied territories. "We needto be

coldhearted," he declared.
In shooting Rabin, Amir, 25, said, be
acted "alone, but maybe with God."
Police, however, arrested Amir's
brother, Hagai,27, on Sunday on suspi-
cion of involvement in the murder.
At a separate hearing yesterday, Hagai
Amir acknowledged customizing the
especially destructive hollow-body bul-
lets used in the slaying.
At his hearing, Yigal Amir, thin and
unshaven, wore a blue shirt and a black
skullcap at his appearance yesterday. He
argued morality with thejudgeand shouted
at reporters justifications for the slaying.
