Former Hamas man to ‘tell truth’ about Muhammad
Jerusalem Post ^ | 06/20/2012 | Melanie Lidman

Ramallah-born Mosab Hassan Yousef has made enough enemies in the Palestinian territories to last a lifetime. The eldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the founders of Hamas, spent his early years as a Hamas activist and went through more than a few stints in Israeli prison.

But for ten years, Yousef was “the Green Prince,” a code name given to him by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), with whom he worked to prevent dozens of terrorist attacks during the second intifada, saving hundreds of Israeli lives.

Two years ago, Yousef—who now lives in the US—published the book Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue and Unthinkable Choices, in which he detailed his disillusionment with the violence inside Hamas and his decision to assist Israel from around 1996 to 2006.

Now 34, Yousef is a devout Christian who is open about his faith as well as his pessimism for the future of peace in the Middle East. … The guiding principle throughout his tumultuous tenure, Yousef said, was his dedication to saving lives. …

“Muslims don’t understand the real nature of Islam,” said Yousef, who said it is a fanatical religion that favors war over peace. He cited the Arab Spring’s failure to create meaningful change and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as proof that Islam is propelling Arab states backward rather than forward.

Yousef noted that he has the authority to criticize Islam because he comes from an Islamic background. He said he wants the world to know about what he says is “the truth” about Muhammad, Islam’s holiest prophet: that he glorified and encouraged murder as a form of worship, married a 9-year-old bride and valued violence. …

What he has to say about Hamas and their inner workings is quite revealing in and of itself. They are literally a cabal of monsters and thugs; an Islamicized version of Nazism (which is what both Nasserism and Ba’athism are particularly).

Thanks SJackson.

We could write a book about Real Islam just based on the many news articles which have been referenced in FreeRepublic.

It is indeed a ghastly spectacle that Islam presents. Probably responsible for more humna deaths, more enslaved human beings, and more human suffering than any other movement in history.

He has the authority to criticize Islam because he lives in America now. He’s been taken in, helped and protected by fellow Christians here. But he also knows he’s marked for death because he left “the faith” and is speaking out about it.

I’ve seen him interviewed a couple of times, at least one of which was on Hannity.

Wonderful and brave young man.
