Mosab Has­san Yousef on Is­lam

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

“A guy be head­ing peo­ple in Iran. Sui­cide bombers. Don’t you re­alise that they think they are do­ing their Is­lamic prac­tice prop­erly?

“We need to be re­al­is­tic about our crit­i­cisms of Is­rael.We need to ask our­selves i four crit­i­cisms are con­struc­tive. Ha­mas thinks they have won be­cause they say: ‘We sent our chil­dren todie. We used our peo­ple as shields. We pulled Is­rael into a muddy field. And now Is­raelis con­demned by their al­lies.’

“So that’s a vic­tory for Ha­mas. They have won their war. They love to see peo­ple dis­con­nect from Is­rael.”
