Ze'evi, Rechavam

Ze'evi, Rechavam
▪ 2002

      Israeli soldier and politician (b. Aug. 20, 1926, Jerusalem, Palestine—d. Oct. 17, 2001, Jerusalem, Israel), pursued hard-line ultranationalist policies, most notably in support of his outspoken belief that all Palestinians should be removed from the Israel-occupied territories in Gaza and the West Bank and transferred to Arab countries and his claim that the kingdom of Jordan should belong to Israel. Ze'evi joined the fight for an independent Israel at age 18 and rose through the army ranks to become military commander in the West Bank. After retiring as a major general in 1974, he served (1974–77) as an antiterrorism adviser to Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. In 1988 Ze'evi, who often drew criticism for his inflammatory remarks, entered politics at the head of the tiny ultranationalist Moledet (Homeland) party. Two days after he had tendered his resignation as minister for tourism, Ze'evi was shot dead, reportedly by the militant Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in retaliation for the Israeli assassination of PFLP leader Abu Ali Mustafa (q.v. (Abu Ali Mustafa )).
