Mosab Hassan Yousef: The documentary

Contrary to what you might believe from the headlines at The Jawa Report and Memeorandum, Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas Sheikh Hassan Yousef, left Hamas and converted to Christianity this past summer (at least).

But now, his story has been made into a six-part video documentary. You can find it here.

Please note the key line:

Yousef, when asked; "Can the Palestinians and Israel live in peace?":

"There is no chance. Is there any chance for fire to co-exist with the water?"
So true.
And note that the question related to the 'Palestinians' and not to Hamas.

Enjoy the show.

Thanks for clarifying Carl. Fixed. I did wonder when he was asked if his dad had blood and his hands and he said "no". I am always leary of "taqiyya"

He could be sincere but...

Moab Hasan Yousef is right there is no chance for peace. The Arab Street is not going to be reconciled to Israel's existence. The issues that are amenable to a political solution are really side issues that distract attention from the core issue in the conflict. A Hamas deserter confirmed what we all know to be the truth and he's honest. Its just Israeli leaders and American leaders who keep denying the obvious because they believe in this fantasy that Israel alone can change Arab perceptions of Israel. It can't.

Mosab is lost, and nothing he is saying is even close to the truth.
Mosab please how can you sleep at night knowing that you are full of it, you made it to the US(magically)away from Hamas try to live a normal live without selling your lies.

Could you clarify this for me? What do you mean by "Palestinian"? Like any group there's a diversity of opinion. I'm sure you don't mean "ethnic" Palestinian, as if they are genetically predisposed to hate Israel.

Sorry if this has been clarified elsewhere on your blog.

Mr. Matzav,
I believe that you surely are mistaken and are not trying to deceive your readers. During Moab Hasan Yousef's interview with Fox News correspondent Johathan Hunt (Tuesday, August 12, 2008), the question was:
JONATHAN HUNT: Do you believe that Israel can ever strike a peace deal with Hamas?
MOSAB HASSAN YOUSEF: There is no chance. Is there any chance for fire to co-exist with the water? There is no chance. Hamas can play politics for 10 years, 15 years; but ask any one of Hamas' leaders, 'Okay, what's going to happen after that? Are you just going to live and co-exist with Israel forever?' The answer is going to be no ... unless they want to do something against the Koran. But it's their ideology and they can't just say 'We're not going to do it.' So there is no chance. It's not about Israel, it's not about Hamas: it's about both ideologies. There is no chance.
Another blogger at meastpeace.blogspot.com should add "giving misinformation to ones people" to his list of things that keep the Israelis and Palestinians from ever arriving at peace.
