In a speech that marked the end of a three - week marathon debate between "hawks" and "doves" in the Labor Alignment's leadership and Knesset faction, Rabin vigorously defended his government's refusal to come forth unilaterally at this time with a definitive overall peace plan, including maps delineating Israel's future* borders.
