Mosab Hassan Yousef

Mosab Hassan Yousef is a Muslim who converted to Christianity and the bestselling author of Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices.
The son of one of the founding members of Hamas, Yousef worked as a spy for the Israeli intelligence service after beginning to question the religion-ideology in which he had been raised. Yousef’s family publicly disowned him after he wrote Son of Hamas, and he said he lost “everything.”
Yesterday, March 30, 2015, Yousef appeared on The Glenn Beck Program to discuss how he rejected radical Islam and converted to Christianity. As recounted by Erica Ritz in The Blaze, Yousef admitted that Islam’s goal is to conquer the world.
He said “I was brought up in a state of delusion, believing the Islamic theory that once we control the globe and build an Islamic State we can bring humanity, justice and happiness and solve the human condition. Islam is a very dark theory and we need to face this reality.”
Instead of former president George W. Bush’s characterization of Islam as a “religion of peace,” Yousef said “Islam is the religion of war.” He explains:
Islam is at war with everything that is not Muslim. Islam has been in a war against the west and its foundations for the last 1,400 years. This is a fact. The Islamic phenomena that we see in ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Taliban — this is not just a new phenomenon. It has been out there for the last 1,400 years. And I think this is the time for humanity to have the courage to say no to the Islamic theory.
On the appeal of Islam, Yousef explains that “it’s easier for them [Muslims] to listen to the leader who is blaming all the social problems and many other problems on Israel and the United States of America. I was brought up believing in the conspiracy theory that the United States of America and the west, including Israel, is plotting day and night to destroy Islam and the Muslim world, which is a lie. And this is how terrorist organizations kept pushing the average person to fight on their behalf against the United States of America and against Israel.
While Yousef believes that George Bush and Barack Obama have good intentions in the Middle East, he vehemently disagrees with Obama’s insistence that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. Worse still, Obama’s characterization is neither inconsequential nor harmless because “When the president of the free world misleads the public, this is a big, big problem I believe. ISIS is the real face of Islam. ISIS is the real manifestation of the Islamic ideology, of the Islamic theory.”
And unlike some who believe Islam can undergo a reformation like Christianity, Yousef believes “Islam cannot be reformed” because at its core, it is based in tribal conflict and “the mentality of the 7th century.”
However, Middle Easterners are beginning to recognize the danger of ISIS because of the latter’s brutal treatment of fellow Muslims. Yousef says, “I think today, Middle Easterners see the enemy is within. They see ISIS. They see their brutality. Even the Palestinians in Gaza, they see the brutality of Hamas and their absolute control over their lives. And [for] the first time, they come to realize that this is the Islamic theory in action. This is the Islamic theory manifestation.”

  1. obviously obvious, so pacify and rationalize. same principal applies to homosexuality and abortion, obviously obvious; it is sin and crime against humanity. but alas shall the devil and his enlightened hoard speak the truth? again obviously obvious, the pacifist and rationalist would ask, “what is truth?” because no truth means no lies.

  2. I agree with Yousef that islam cannot be reformed. If you go to the source of Christianity you are told to forgive and to love. When you go to the source of islam, you are commanded to commit murder.

    • When you go to the source of islam, you are commanded to commit murder.
      I heard a thoughtful fellow make an exceptional point one day as he said something like “People say that islam needs a reformation, but let’s think about this for a moment; the Christian reformation was about getting closer to the foundational writings, Reformed Judaism is about getting closer to the foundational writings — do we really want islam to get even closer to their foundational writings?!?”
      I’ll take “Nope” for $500, Alex….

  3. Hope Yousef carries protection…

  4. Logic tells me that a muslim should never be:
    a US politician (or a politician in any western nation)
    a member of the military, of the US, or any western nation
    a police officer
    an attorney or judge
    a news reporter on television, radio, etc.
    permitted permanent status in any western nation
    I also believe that there should be a limit on the establishment of mosques in western nations….. the number ‘0’ would be ideal.
    If they have only one allegiance, then they should remain in the nations that follow those tenets.
    I believe the current world situation bears this out.

  5. Gee Mr. Yousef , tell us something we didn’t know already ! Stating Islam is not a peaceful religion is about as informative as telling us the sun is going to set in the West tonight …
    As to your ” lost everything ” comment ………Are you still above ground ? If so , you have not lost EVERYTHING !

    • japoa,
      Under Islam, Yousef could be hounded and killed for being an apostate. We constantly complain that Muslims don’t speak out against their “radical” fellow Muslims. I admire Yousef for boldly speaking out, which takes courage that few Americans seem to possess these days.

      • I was being sarcastic with the first part of the comment , but the 2nd part is very true , don’t you think ?

        • True, he was being hyperbolic in saying he’s lost “everything.” While he had lost his original bio family, he now has an entire huge family of fellow Christians. I suggest we say a prayer for Yousef, our brother in Christ, instead of mocking and belittling him. He really doesn’t deserve that.

          • I was not mocking him , just hoping for something a little bit more enlightening than that , that’s all

            • Certainly, if Yousef meant us to be his audience/readers, he’s preaching to the choir. Hopefully, his words will reach the people who really need to hear them — Muslims. 😀

              • That’s all I was getting at Doc ……as to your last sentence , probably falling on deaf ears ; much like welfare reform to welfare brood-mares .

  6. I think it’s wonderful that Yousef is risking his own neck ( literally) by spreading the truth of Islam and it’s evil intentions. It’s just too bad that the people on the Left are so stubbornly attached to their talking points on this subject. I doubt they would believe that Islam wants them converted or dead until they felt the point of the blade against their necks.

  7. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this important post. Yousef’s testimony regarding his life and the role of Islam in it is profound, enlightening and thought-provoking. I shall pray for this courageous man who chose Our Lord Jesus Christ. May Jesus give him His peace, happiness, safety and love.

  8. DAH! Read the history of Muhammad—who was ousted from Mecca by his relatives (uncles who guarded the trade routes) once he started gathering a cultish-following ( all his free-time to do so financed as the benefiiary of a rich, lonely widow years and years older than he….); he went to Medina & attracted other cultish-seekers ( some of whom abandoned the “new” formalized Christianity) when he offered “parallel isms.” In the end…what launched him was taking 10,000 armed swordsmen to Mecca to decaptitate/take over his former relative’s “business.” Thereafter, Muhammed’s brand of Islam ALWAYS included violence & the decapitation that we are SO repelled by today ……the stoning & subjugation of women, & every damned thing we seem “surprised and repelled by” today on the evening news. YOU ALL—WAKE UP….this has BEEN a part of Islam since Muhammad himself was brandishing his sword at the head of his followers!
