Mosab Hassan Yousef told CNN’s Don Lemon that “Hamas is not seeking coexistence and compromise; Hamas is seeking conquest and taking over.”
A former Muslim who rejected Hamas’s teachings and converted to Christianity, Masab is the son of Hamas founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef.
Speaking of Hamas’s “final destination,” Yosef said that in the end, Hamas wants to build an Islamic Caliphate “on the rubble of any other civilization.”
“Hamas does not care about the lives of Palestinians, does not care about the lives of Israelis or Americans. How can you continue in that society? They consider dying for their ideology a way of worship.”
Yosef went on to describe the indoctrination of Palestinian children, some as young as 5-years-old. They are taught, as he was taught, to be willing to give their own lives for the ultimate objectives of Hamas. “When I look at the children of Gaza, and I know what they are fed, I know that they have no choice.”
Yousef spent ten years as an informant for the Israeli Defense Force, and requested political asylum in America in 2010.
“It is impossible, almost, for anybody to break through and see the truth and real face of Hamas, and be able to leave at some point,” he continued. “As you see in my case, I had to lose everything just to say no to Hamas.”
