Nizar Rayan (r), his four wives, and ten children were killed in their home after they ignored warnings of a strike.  Thousands of Hamas supporters marched in the streets with mourners holding up bodies to the cameras to underscore Israel’s brutality.



Israel’s military says the homes of Hamas leaders are being used to store missiles and other weapons, making them a legitimate target.



Rayan, an influential preacher, had previously denied Israel’s existence and was a known mentor of suicide bombers.



He even sent one of his sons on an October 2001 suicide mission that killed two Israeli settlers in Gaza.



Rayan was a professor of military law.  It’s rumored that that Palestinian National Authority may have asked Israel to kill him because of his role in violent battles that undermined the peace efforts of Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.


Rayan was fundamentally against the state of Israel and had declared: ‘There is nothing called Israel, neither in reality nor in the imagination.’



He was preaching in a local mosque on the day before he was killed and said: ‘Our only language with the Jew is through the gun.’
