Sheik Ahmed Yassin
Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 22, 2004

Notorious Islamic Leader. He was the spiritual leader of the Islamic militant group Hamas, and a symbolic figure for Palestinians to resistance against Israel. He helped establish Hamas and became its spiritual leader in 1987, and was blamed by the Israeli government for planning suicide bombings and other attacks against Israel. Though he was confined to a wheelchair (he was paralyzed since boyhood), nearly blind and very hard of hearing, he was very powerful and influential. He was assassinated in an airstrike by the Israeli Army after he leaving a mosque in Gaza. He was believed to be 68 years old. (bio by: Always with Love)
