We give a new proof based on Fourier Transform of the classical Glassey and Strauss [6] global existence result for the 3D relativistic Vlasov-Maxwell system, under the assumption of compactly supported particle densities. Though our proof is not substantially shorter than that of [6], we believe it adds a new perspective to the problem. In particular the proof is based on three main observations, see Facts 1-3 following the statement of Theorem 1.4, which are of independent interest.
