In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the assassination of Abdel Aziz al-Rantisi, one of the cofounders of Hamas, terrorist groups in Gaza released a video threatening Israel.

"Oh Bush, oh Sharon, we will be victorious," a Hamas member said in the video. "Tomorrow, Allah willing, you will learn that."

"The Qassam Brigades will strike at you in Haifa, Tel Aviv, Safed and in Acre," the video continued. "We don't differentiate between Palestine and Palestine. Jaffa is like Gaza, Tel al-Zuhour is like Rafah, the Galilee is like Hebron. We don't distinguish between one inch."

Al-Rantisi was assassinated by the Israel Air Force in April 2004, when helicopters fired on his car on one of the few occasions he came out of hiding.
