Son of Hamas Founder Denounces Islam
"Our biggest problem - which is bigger than Bin Laden, bigger than a bunch of terrorists in Afghanistan mountains - is the God of Islam who exists in here in America, who exists in every library, mosque, Islamic institution. He is free to travel all over the world and have influence on people." Mosab Hassan Yousef
Mosab Hassan Yousef is the son of Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef. Yousef said he has denounced Islam.
Mosab Hassan Yousef stated, among other things, "is there any chance for fire to co-exist with the water?" "It's not about Israel, it's not about Hamas: it's about both ideologies."
Yousef, went on to state that Hamas betrays the Palestinian cause and tortures its own members.
Yousef indicated that he was indoctrinated at an early age to use violence to challenge Israeli control in the region. As a teenager he moved up within the organization and became the leader of the radical Islamic Youth Movement that fought Israeli tanks and troops in the streets, celebrated suicide bombings and recruited young men to the cause.
Yousef, 30, said he realized the true nature of Hamas and radical Islam during a stint in an Israeli prison. He renounced his Muslim faith, left his family behind in Ramallah and converted to Christianity.
