In November of 2023, Son of Hamas author and former member of the controversial Palestinian group Hamas, Masab Hassan Yousef, spoke at Pursuit NW Church in Snohomish, condemning the October 7th attack of his former resistance movement and showing his support for Israel.

Hamas Terrorist attack of October 7, 2023

On October 7, 2023, Hamas led a series of coordinated attacks against Israel — on a Sabbath day and date of many Jewish holidays — killing over 1,000 Jewish civilians and approximately 350 Israeli soldiers.

Approximately 3,000 Palestinian militants infiltrated Israel from Gaza using trucks, powered paragliders, bulldozers, and speedboats, opening fire on Israeli civilians and setting homes on fire. Additionally, Hamas took approximately 200 Israeli hostages, approximately 30 of which were children.

October 7 was the largest number of Jews killed on a single day since the Holocaust.

At least 44 nations considered the attack an act of terrorism but Hamas, and many Arab nations, blamed Israel saying the attack was provoked by Jewish settlements in the West Bank and in Gaza.
