Video interview: Mahmoud Zahar, Hamas co-founder

The Globe and Mail's Patrick Martin went into the blocked Gaza Strip and the Israeli-occupied West Bank to get access to the people behind the militant social and political organization Hamas.

Watch an interview with Mahmoud Zahar , Hamas co-founder. A surgeon, he's Hamas's top political official in Gaza. An Israeli bid to assassinate him in 2003 killed one of his sons. Another son, a militant, was killed by an Israeli air strike five years later.

With Inside Hamas, the Globe is testing a new mobile video solution. If you have questions or feedback, please let us know via e-mail.
