Ex-Terrorist Predicts Thousands of Gazans Will Accept Jesus

A former terrorist predicts that thousands of Gazans will turn to Christ as the war between Israel and Hamas continues.

said Tasir “Tas” Abu Saada, a former member of the Fatah terrorist group who became a Christian in the 1990s. Joel RosenbergThe American-Israeli communications strategist said he believes Gazans will convert from Islam to Christianity because of the war and being deceived by Hamas.

“Hamas is an ideology that is widespread not only in the Gaza Strip but among many people around the world,” Saada explained on the program.Rosenberg Report” From TBN. “But God has a plan. And I believe that the plan for Arabs and Jews is part of it, and that's where my hope lies.”

“That's why I moved to the Gaza Strip and am returning to the holy land to take part in the reconstruction,” he added. “I believe that when they see all the destruction, all the things that have happened, and the suffering that the Palestinian people have gone through, they will not be able to remain silent and will ask, 'Why?' God does a lot of work. He will give it to you [in Gaza]And I want to be a part of that too. ”

Saada, who was born in Gaza, said he became angry with Jewish Israelis in the aftermath of the 1967 Six-Day War. During his childhood, his family moved to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. He eventually joined Fatah and fled to fight in support of former Palestine Liberation Organization chairman Yasser Arafat.

“After the six-day war, I felt like I had a nervous breakdown and my hatred grew stronger and stronger,” Saada said in her testimony published in November 2016. Jewish “I couldn't understand how we could lose so many wars with Israel. We were bigger than Israel in numbers and size, and we had more equipment. Everything we had was lost to them. We had more than they had, but we still lost the war against them.”

“I thought our leaders had once again sold us to the Jews,” he added. “That's when I decided to fight for our land, which I believed was ours.”

around face wire, Saada got into legal trouble during a series of events and was subsequently sent to the United States. He married an American woman in the United States and met a Christian man who led him to Christ.

The Christian man told Saada, “If you want to experience peace of mind like I have, you must love Jews.''

“I completely froze up and asked him how he could come up with such a thing, loving Jews. He knew I hated them. For me, and almost “A good Jew was a dead Jew, just like an Arab,” he recalled.

After Saada and his spiritual leader read the Bible together, the former terrorist said he felt an urge to pray for Jews the next day.

“The first people I wanted to pray to were Jews,” Saada said. “I was praying, 'Oh God, bless your people, Israel. God, gather them together into the Promised Land.'

Mr. Saada told Mr. Rosenberg that he believed the world was now facing an end.

“What we're seeing today is really one of the signs of the end of an era, because it's not normal. So it's the destruction that's happening,” he told the host. “The evil hand of Hamas is attacking Israelis in extreme and very evil ways. Naturally, Israel has had to defend itself in response.”

Despite the destruction and chaos, many Gazans will ultimately turn to Christ as their only hope, Saada insisted.

“The harvest will be huge,” he declared.
