Mosab Hassan Yousef, otherwise known as the Green Prince, who is the son of one of the founders of Hamas and who formerly worked undercover with the Shin Bet to stop terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians, believes that overthrowing the Hamas regime is a necessity. Yousef asserted,“Let’s not forget that our enemy is a barbarian enemy and they are using women and children as a shield. Hamas was born to destroy. Hamas does not know how to build. I doubt they will be able to build a modern Palestinian state and hope their lies will be exposed to the Palestinian public.”
Yousef asserted, “Israel […] helps the people of Gaza more than anybody else” and listed Israeli provisions of electricity, money and humanitarian support. To the contrary, recently, Hamas executed six Palestinians for the mere suspicion of collaborating with Israel and without giving these people any sort of fair judicial proceedings, Hamas dragged their dead bodies in a brutal manner through the streets. Yousef asserted, “Most of those who are killed in the Gaza Strip for the suspicion of collaborating with Israel have nothing to do with Israel.” Furthermore, Hamas ruthlessly murdered Palestinians celebrating a wedding not too long ago just for singing songs.
To his father, who publicly disowned Yousef after he published his book documenting his experience as a Shin Bet agent in a book titled Son of Hamas, Yousef had the following to say, “It is not courageous of them to hide behind children and launch missiles. Israel was out [of Gaza, having removed all its civilians and its military in the disengagement of 2005]. The battlefield was out of the populated areas. If they [Hamas members] had courage they could have come out of the Gaza Strip instead of hiding like rats.”
Mosab Hassan Yousef nevertheless recognizes the importance of the cease-fire. He declared, “Maybe this was not the perfect time for Israel to execute a ground operation, but this is an option that I am sure Israel will take into consideration in the future. It does not have to re-occupy the Gaza Strip, does not have to go into very populated areas, but I believe Israel can control the borders, where Hamas smuggles its weapons, anytime. If Hamas continues to threaten the security of the state of Israel, I believe Israel has the ability and the capacity to control the borders and cut off the weapons supply.”
Earlier this year, Mosab Hassan Yousef visited the Israeli Knesset at the invitation of Druze MK Ayoub Kara. There, he told Israeli MKs, “Hamas murders not only Israelis but also Palestinians whose political stance is different from that which its group promotes; that is, its radical religious outlook in which Islam is the solution to the world’s problems.” Also this year, speaking at the Museum of Tolerance, Yousef asserted that the two main goals of Hamas are the destruction of Israel and building an Islamic state on the rubble of what is Israel.
At the Museum of Tolerance, Yousef claimed that Hamas’ treatment of the Palestinian people is what motivated him to change his position from supporting Hamas to supporting Israel: “Hamas was torturing its own members trying to figure out who has information on the Israeli intelligence. Hundreds of prisoners were tortured, tens were killed. And I witnessed all of that.” Evidently, none of these people were connected with the Israeli intelligence, yet upon being tortured, they confessed and handed over more names of innocent people, who were in turn tortured. Yousef has learned to love Israel because unlike Hamas, Israel is democratic.
