Son of Hamas leader comes to Christ
An Israeli media outlet has recently carried an extensive interview with Masab Yousef, the son of a prominent Hamas leader , who is now a follower of Jesus Christ. Though the 30-year-old Masab now lives in California he misses his native Ramallah; and is praying that God will give him a wife - preferably a converted Jew.
Though his father was a good father to him, Masab came to realise that Hamas is "cruel and ugly inside".
Speaking to reporter Avi Issacharoff of HAARETZ.com he said:
"Many people will hate me for this interview, but I'm telling them that I love all of them, even those who hate me. I invite all the people, including the terrorists among them, to open their hearts and believe. Now I'm trying to establish an international organization for young people that will teach about Christianity, love and peace in the territories, too. I would like to teach the young people how to love and forgive, because that's the only way the two nations can overcome the mistakes of the past and live in peace."
In spite of the severance from his family and the loneliness he is committed to his faith in Christ.
