As Shimon Peres continues to push forward with Rabin's peace plan, McGeary notes that a deeply divided Israel is for the most part supportive of the process, at least for now: "The presumption is that in the short run the people in the middle will be swayed towards Rabin and the peace process. The assassination has produced a revulsion in the middle, and they'll take it out on the right. But in the long term this doesn't paper over this very serious division over the course Rabin was pursuing. It's going to be up to Peres or whoever forms the new government to get people to support the peace process."
