Anniversary of Rechavam “Gandhi” Ze’evi’s Assasination

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

On October 17, 2011, Palestinian terrorists shot and killed Israeli Minister Rechavam “Gandhi” Ze’evi. Ze’evi was the founder of the right-wing Moledet party, and a strong advocate for finding and returning home Israel’s missing soldiers.

In 1974 Ze’evi retired from the IDF with the rank of Major General.

Among his other many accomplishments were his extensive and well-researched writings on the Land of Israel and as director of the Eretz Yisrael Museum.

Ze’evi was born in Jerusalem on June 20, 1926.

Ze’evi was killed in his Jerusalem Hyatt hotel room on Mount Scopus by Palestinian terrorists. The terrorists fled to the Palestinian Authority were they were given safe haven. Eventually the IDF captured them, and they were given life sentences in prison.
