Continuing on the theme from my previous post about the state of Israel’s moral compass, here is someone who knows how truly moral Israel is.
Mosab Hassan Yousef is the son of Hamas commander Sheikh Hassan Yousef, and worked as an undercover agent for Israel for many years. From his Wikipedia bio:
Shin Bet considered him its most valuable source within the Hamas leadership: the information Yousef supplied prevented dozens of suicide attacks and assassinations of Israelis, exposed numerous Hamas cells, and assisted Israel in hunting down many militants, including the incarceration of his own father, a Hamas leader SheikhHassan Yousef. In March 2010, he published his autobiography titled Son of Hamas.
In 1999, Yousef converted to Christianity, and in 2007 moved to the United States. His request for political asylum in the United States was granted pending a routine background check on June 30, 2010.
The rest of his life story reads like a spy thriller. He wrote an autobiography Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices.
Last week Mosab Yousef was a keynote speaker at the Jerusalem Post Conference in New York. Arutz Sheva brings us the video and a summary of his speech:
Yousef, whose code name was “The Green Prince”, risked his life working undercover for the Shin Bet, and during that time he supplied information that prevented dozens of suicide attacks and assassinations of Israelis and exposed numerous Hamas terrorist cells.
He ultimately converted to Christianity and fled to the United States where he was granted political asylum.
“At one point I thought that the Jewish nation is the enemy of humanity. I thought they were the enemy of our people, the Palestinian people, until I experienced what the Jewish nation truly is,” said Yousef, who described Israel as “the only light in the Middle East”.
“We can fool ourselves, but there is an Islamic problem,” he continued, adding, “Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Islamic Jihad, the Islamic State (ISIS) and Boko Haram – all of them kill in the name of Allah.”
“There is an Islamic problem and humanity needs to stand against this danger, because it is not directed only against Israel. This danger is against human evolution,” warned Yousef.
Yousef then addresses the much-discussed question of Israel’s morality:
Yousef praised Israel for its morality and its values, saying Israel is a “nation that managed to survive the Holocaust and instead of assuming the role of victim and blaming everyone they were able to establish a democratic state – a young country which developed in less than 25 years. This is a good example for everyone.”
Just listen to his amazing speech. No further commentary is necessary.
