‘Islam Is a Very Dark Theory’: How the Son of a Founding Member of Hamas Rejected Extremism and Converted to Christianity

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the bestselling author of “Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices,” appeared on The Glenn Beck Program Monday to discuss how he rejected radical Islam and converted to Christianity.

“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,” Yousef said. “Islam is a very dark theory and we need to face this reality.”

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 ideology he had been raised with. On Monday, he reiterated his belief that “Islam is the religion of war.”

“Islam is at war with everything that is not Muslim,” he said. “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”…

    “…this is not just a new phenomenon. It has been out there for the last 1,400 years.”
    Something that is apparently never, ever to be mentioned in polite company, e.g. the MSM. No, its supposed to be all about Shrub the Younger. :rolleyes

      the left don’t do learning from history

    Wow…just wow… But it’s dead on true. I suppose it’s possible to believe that all the bad things said about Islam by anti-jihadist speakers and scholars are a ‘racist’ distortion of the truth. But then you have to look at the history of Islam and Islamic culture, and the way Islamic culture is being practiced in the Islamic world right up to the present day. It’s impossible not to realize that Islam is a vicious, aggressive totalitarian ideology given the cachet of ‘religion’. Clearly Yousef is capable of standing outside his native culture and recognizing what it really is…a rare feat. Gonna check Amazon for his book right now.

    Islam has been weighed and measured and found to be evil.

    Ban Islam

    When he first came to the US there was some discussion as to whether he was the real deal, or some sort of infiltrator. It’s pretty clear from the interview that he is indeed the real deal. Brave lad.
