Son of Hamas Founder: ‘Hamas Is a Terrorist Organization With a Humanitarian Face’
The son of the founder of Hamas was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss the conflict in Gaza.
“Hamas is not a national organization and it’s not a humanitarian organization. Hamas is a terrorist organization with a humanitarian face to it,” Mosab Hassan Yousef said.
Yousef said that Hamas has hijacked the Palestinian cause to push its political and religious ideological agendas. He said Hamas wants to destroy the state of Israel and any country that does not believe in its ideology.
“My family paid a high price for the sake of Hamas, for the sake of Palestine, and I grew up witnessing all the bloodshed and the dirty politics behind it,” he said on why he is speaking out against Hamas.
“The children of Gaza remind me of myself 20 years ago, how we were crying in the streets, not knowing what’s going on, and the politicians were sending us to death, and they were encouraging more people to die because if the people of Gaza and the children of Gaza stop to die, many people will be out of business,” he said.
Yousef said that he hopes President Barack Obama will make a hard decision and show leadership. He said Hamas must be disarmed to stop future wars.
