The son of a Hamas leader who helped Israel’s security forces kill and arrest members of the Islamic terrorist group says he’s not afraid to die.
Mosab Hassan Yousef tells The Associated Press he’s willing to speak out about Hamas’ brutalities and the evils of Islam even if it gets him killed.
During an AP interview, Yousef — a convert to Christianity — hurled his most inflammatory comments at Islam. Acknowledging that the comment would likely offend many people — but that his goal is not to offend — he said: “The biggest terrorist is Allah of the Quran, the god of the Quran, the god of Islam.”
Since leaving Islam, Yousef has come to believe that the more closely Muslims follow Allah and Muhammad, the more they become “inhuman” terrorists.
Yousef’s father, senior Hamas leader Sheik Hassan Yousef, publicly disowned his son on Monday. But the younger Yousef says he now worships a God who will never disown him. “A god who teaches you how to hate and he says about himself that ‘I am the deceit [sic]’ is different than a God who tells you ‘I love you — no matter what you do, you’re my son.”
