ISLAMIC NATIONAL SALVATION PARTY (Hizb al-Khalas al-Watani al-Islami, in Arabic)
Created in Gaza, on 19 March 1996, so as to realize "Palestinian national unity," this Palestinian entity attracted influential figures from the Muslim Brotherhood. The INSP made a point of distinguishing itself from HAMAS, in that its political program provided for no form of armed resistance. Its main leaders were Fuʾad Nahal (president), Ismael Abu Shanab, Fikr Abdul Latif (spokesperson), and Ahmad Mahmud Bahar.
