One of the founders of Hamas’s military wing, Muhammad Nazami Nasser, issued a Facebook message to his fellow Palestinians apologizing for his involvement with the terror group that controls the Gaza Strip.
In the post, Nasser called Hamas “the devil” for bringing destruction and hatred to the Palestinian people, according to the Times of Israel. He apologized to “Palestinians within and outside [of Palestine],” as well as to dozens of Palestinian factions and leaders, including “the immortal Palestinian President Yasser Arafat,” Fatah, the People’s Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), and many other groups.
He apologized for the “horror of hatred that lived within me toward you [i.e., the political factions],” and for his “relentless work so that you would not have a geographical or political place on the national map.”
“I ask God to forgive me for this [deception] from the Devil [i.e., Hamas] that this hatred would bring me to the highest height of Paradise,” he wrote.
During his time with Hamas, Nasser was directly involved in terror attacks against Israel, including in the 1989 abductions and murders of Israelis Avi Sasportas and Ilan Saadon. Nasser currently lives in the Gaza Strip and belongs to the group “Wataniyyin” (“Patriots”), which works to reconcile Palestinian factions. Nasser has never apologized to Israel for his involvement in terrorism.
