Dwight Howard Tweets #FreePalestine ... Immediately Deletes, Apologizes

0712-dwight-howard-tmz-01Dwight Howard has stepped right into the middle of a heated political issue -- tweeting #FreePalestine ... and then immediately deleting it, apologizing and calling it a "mistake."

It all went down Saturday afternoon -- the NBA star offered no explanation as to why he posted the #FreePalestine tweet ... but it seems it was motivated by the current situation in the Middle East.

0712-dwight-howard-tweet-02Moments after the tweet went up ... it went down ... and the backpeddling began, with Dwight writing, "Previous tweet was a mistake. I have never commented on international politics and never will."

Then came the follow up ... ""I apologize if I offended anyone with my previous tweet, it was a mistake!"

Wonder how Amare Stoudemire is gonna feel about it?
