A-Zahar replaces Rantisi as Hamas leader in Strip| |
Dr. Mahmoud A-Zahar has been elected political leader of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, say Palestinian sources familiar with the inner workings of the movement. He fills the job held by Abdel Aziz Rantisi until his assassination nine days ago.This was supposed to remain a secret to hamper Israeli efforts to target the new leader. What a shame that his identity is known now. And how come these terror leaders are always doctors?
