What is stronger than hate and bloodshed?

While Israel and Hamas engage in "all-out war" in the Gaza Strip, a FOX News documentary tells an extraordinary story of faith, courage, violence, betrayal and conversion.

Correspondent Jonathan Hunt's investigation goes deep inside Hamas, through a series of stunning exclusive interviews with the son of a founding member of the Islamic terrorist group. Mosab Hassan himself became the leader of the radical Islamic Youth Movement, fought Israeli tanks and troops in the streets, celebrated suicide bombings and recruited young men to the cause.

God bless and protect him, his life is in greater danger now than it was when he was with Hamas. That being said, it is exactly what needs to happen for the Palestinians to survive, the conversion of Muslims to Christianity, or ANYTHING else for that matter. There will never be peace with Islam, its against their very core belief systems. That being said, Iran ought to just take in ALL of the Islamic Palestinians. take them out of the West Bank and Gaza, not only will THAT save lives and stop the war, it would WORK. But no, Iran WANTS the Palestinians dead, its the only logical conclusion. The Palestinians are STUPID for believing anything different.

I dunno Walid Shoebat, Zachariah Anani and other former terrorists are still very alive to tell their story of the religion of hate.

Are they speaking up out in the open like Hassan or are they doing so while in hiding?

I watched it;
there were some glaringly ignorant statements made by Faux News.

Bill Hemmer said "Muslims kill in the name of G-d".

False: they kill in the name of Allah.
Allah is not the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.

Jonathan Hunt said Jerusalem was the origin of the three great religions.
False Jerusalem is the home of Judaism and Christianity.
Mecca is the home of Islam.

Conversion to Christianity or free from religion would require our political leaders to demand reciprocal religious freedom in Muslim countries. Sadly our leaders are took weak but instead call it religion of peace and welcome these shock troops in our lands.

When I saw this special and Yousef said Islam is dying and will be dead in 10 years - I had to laugh if anything Islamic demographic conquest in happening in the west where in France every 1 in 3 child is born Muslim. If demographic trends continue in 20-40 years from now we will have to deal with Europe’s armories again.

Walid Shoebat, Zak Anani and Ibrahim Abadallah all speak at lots of universities, talk shows and political forums.

That statement also caught my attention. None of the three religions in question originated in Jerusalem.

This was a very worthwhile report to watch.
It was touching to hear that Christ's words “love your enemies” were the arrows that pierced his heart. He had probably never heard words of love and forgiveness in his life.
Kudos to the young Christian man who stood near the temple, asking anyone who could hear to come study the Bible.
If you missed this special, tune in Monday night.

Judaism has as it's center, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
King David paid 600 shekels of Gold for the Temple Mount (1 Chronicles 21:25)

Yah'shua paid the price for our sins in Jerusalem.

The land of Israel belongs to YHvH
and He has given it to His chosen people.

We don’t get cable or dish. Is there any way to see this perhaps on Youtube, or some other way?

I was impressed. Fox aired him telling it like it is inside Hamas and Islam itself. It was a devastating denouncement of the religion. I agree, well worth the time spent watching. The crybabies at Cair are going to go into orbit over this one.

Many of Fox’s specials play at Hulu.com, you should be able to see it there.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This man’s story made me shake with the courage and strength that Jesus Christ Himself gave this young man to speak out against the Evils of this world. I pray for his protection and faith to be enough to carry him all the rest of his days.

Christ Himself, who understood persecution, and the early Christians, who walked the same ground, both physically and sacrificially and whose stories should give us all strength, all are enough for each of us to know the value of Jesus’s message.

Christ died for the wicked.

To die for someone else to find Christ.. .is the ultimate act of faith.

Islam began in what is now Saudi Arabia, not Jerusalem. Judaism originated long before King David conquered Jerusalem and made it his capital. Christianity, arguably, started when Jesus began preaching, teaching, and recruiting followers in what is today northern Israel.
