Another one bites the dust
Abd al-Aziz Rantissi was born in Israel in 1947. His family moved to the Gaza Strip in 1948. He attended medical school in Egypt, then returned to Gaza. He worked as a resident physician at Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis. Rantissi joined the Faculty of Science at the Islamic University of Gaza when it opened in 1978 and also became Chief Pediatrician in the Government Hospital in Khan Yunis. In 1983, he was arrested for refusing to pay taxes to Israel. On January 15, 1988, he was again arrested for 21 days.
In 1987, four residents of the Jabalya refugee camp in Gaza were killed in a traffic accident. According to Rantissi, he joined with Sheikh Ahmad Yassin, 'Abdel Fattah Dukhan, Mohammed Shama', Dr. Ibrahim al-Yazour, Issa al-Najjar, and Salah Shehadeh and instructed people to exit the mosques chanting "Allah Akbar" (God is great). This was how the first intifada began, says Rantissi, under the leadership of what would subsequently be known as Hamas. The PLO later joined and a united leadership was formed. On March 4, 1988, Israel arrested him for his participation in the Intifada. He was released on September 4, 1990. On December 14, 1990 he was again arrested and placed in administrative detention.
In December 1992, he was expelled to Lebanon, as part of the expulsion of 416 Hamas and Islamic Jihad operatives, and emerged as general spokesman of those expelled to southern Lebanon. Upon his return in 1993, he was arrested, but later released.
After the return of Sheikh Yassin to the Gaza Strip in October 1997, Yassin, together with the senior operatives including Rantissi, reorganized the Hamas leadership in the Gaza Strip to restore its activity.
Abd al-Aziz Rantissi replaced Salah Shehadeh and Ibriahim Macadma, after they were assassinated by Israel, as the head (along with “spiritual” leader Yassin) of Hamas and its principal spokesperson.
Rantissi has considerable influence over the Palestinian public. He delivers sermons, addresses, and interviews utilizing extreme language, in which he calls for the continuation of the terrorist activity against the State of Israel and its citizens, opposing any cease fire. This serves as instructions to the field operatives in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank to continue their terrorist activity. Upon the assassination of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin on March 22, 2004, Rantissi was named head of Hamas's activities in the Gaza Strip.
In June 2003, the IDF carried out an unsuccessful mission to eliminate Rantissi, who survived the helicopter strike upon his vehicle in Gaza City.
April 17, 2004 Rantissi was taken out by Israeli missiles. Rantisi's car was hit with missiles Saturday evening on the road outside his home, leaving only the burned, destroyed vehicle.
This is one serious sack of shit that the world will not miss. We will inevitably have to listen to a whole bunch of bullshit hypocritical condemnation from the UN, EU, and the rest of the world outside of the US. Once the bullshit dies out a little, this world will be a much safer place to live for everybody.
