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

Islam is indeed seen today as the religion of war. This is one book I will buy immediately and relish reading. In Islam, converting to Christianity is taking your life into your hands. You are considered an Apostate and the punishment is death. Hamas is a terrorist group in radical Islam (regardless of what Obama says) and they are committed to war and the destruction of Israel and America. A very courageous Yousef left radical Islam and Hamas… he converted to Christianity and took a stand.

From TheBlaze:

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.”

Yousef’s family publicly disowned him after he wrote “Son of Hamas,” and he said he lost “everything.” And while he believes everyone is capable of seeing the cruelty of Hamas and radical Islam, he also said “it’s easier for them to listen to the leader who is blaming all the social problems and many other problems on Israel and the United States of America.”

“I was brought up believing in the conspiracy theory that the United States of America and the west, including Israel, is plotting day and night to destroy Islam and the Muslim world, which is a lie,” he said. “And this is how terrorist organizations kept pushing the average person to fight on their behalf against the United States of America and against Israel.”

Though Yousef said he believes both George Bush and Barack Obama have good intentions in the Middle East, he also said Obama’s insistence that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam “really matters.”

“When the president of the free world misleads the public, this is a big, big problem I believe,” he said. “ISIS is the real face of Islam. ISIS is the real manifestation of the Islamic ideology, of the Islamic theory.”

And unlike some who believe Islam can undergo a reformation like Christianity, Yousef believes “Islam cannot be reformed” because at its core, it is based in tribal conflict and “the mentality of the 7th century.”

“I think today, Middle Easterners see the enemy is within,” Yousef said. “They see ISIS. They see their brutality. Even the Palestinians in Gaza, they see the brutality of Hamas and their absolute control over their lives. And [for] the first time, they come to realize that this is the Islamic theory in action. This is the Islamic theory manifestation.”

Not only did Yousef convert, he became a spy for Israel because he believed it was the right thing to do and to fight evil. I believe he is wrong on Barack Obama’s intentions, but putting that aside, Yousef gets it absolutely right. Obama is misleading everyone – he uses Taqiyya in a very skilled manner. ISIS is the true face of radical Islam. I also agree with him that Islam cannot be reformed in this political climate – because of the tribal and militant mentality and basis for it. These core beliefs are now resurgent in Islam and global conquest and submission of the masses is their goal. All must bow to Allah. All religions should be able to exist in harmony – not at the threat of beheading and genocide. Moderation has nothing to do with what we see transpiring across the globe these days.
