The New Leader of Hamas, Rantisi, Killed
By Mike Rappaport

What a shame! The new leader of Hamas has been killed by Israel. According to the New York Times:
    Speaking last month at a memorial service for Sheik Yassin, Dr. Rantisi said: "The Israelis will not know security. We will fight them until the liberation of Palestine, the whole of Palestine."

    Hamas has carried out about half of the more than 100 Palestinian suicide bombings in the past three and a half years of Middle East fighting. The group has always opposed negotiations with Israel, and calls for its destruction.
European leaders somehow criticize this attack. Who will be the next leader of Hamas?, and what will be his life expectancy?
