Mosab Hassan Yousef (Joseph is his Christian name now apparently) is the thirty-year-old son of a man described as a Hamas leader. Joseph has accepted Jesus. His interview with Fox News is worth reading. In it, he demonstrates some of what I've written on this site about what will happen if the Muslims are allowed to read the Gospels and the rest of the Bible and to hear the truth about Mohammed, his child wife, his murders, his caravan raids to plunder and to take slaves, his distorting the Gospel message, etc.

Son of Hamas Leader Turns Back on Islam and Embraces Christianity
Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Fox News

Joseph attends Barabbas Road Church in La Jolla, California.
They are Fundamentalists, believing in the "six literal, twenty-four hour days" of Creation. They believe that the "miracles ceased." (They haven't experienced miracles. See this though.) They are dispensationalists, pretribulationists, and premillennialists.

I do not hold with all of the positions of Barabbas Road Church, but Joseph has made much progress out from Islam. He also speaks much truth about Israel and Jews.

I learned about this story from Samuel Ramzy (Egypt). Samuel runs the Mohammed Hegazy (BISHOY) group on Facebook.


The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)

      I believe that this man should be ashamed of himself for what he has done! If he wants to become Christian, that's between him and God. He doesn't have to slander Islam and spread lies about the Quran. I am a former Christian who converted to Islam 14 years ago, and I have never heard in any of my religious classes anyone slandering the Bible because this book contains God's words like the Quran, and as Muslims we must repect the books that God sent. I feel very sorry for this man because he has truly lost his path. As Muslims, we must believe in all the prophets, not just Mohamed (PBUH), we believe in Prophet Jesus and must always say Peace be Upon Him when we speak of him and all other prophets. Yousef or Joseph should really think twice before spreading lies because on the Day of Judgment, he will have to answer to God for what he has done and most importantly the vicious lies he is spreading about Islam! Let him enjoy this lifetime, I fear for him in the afterlife.

      • Hello Olga,

        "former Christian"? There's no such thing. If you were ever a Christian, then you still are. If you are not a Christian, you never were.

        Mohammed taught wrong.

        There is no such thing as a "just war." If you believe that Jesus was a prophet, then why do you think he, who came before Mohammed, was wrong when he taught and demonstrated that only those without sin may cast stones? Are all Muslims without sin that they may stone others? Mohammed taught stoning did he not? Do you not know hypocrisy when you see it? Mohammed did not received the truth. He distorted the message of Jesus Christ (The One and Only). Mohammed is not the Holy Spirit of the New Testament. Mohammed does not put me in mind of Jesus. He does not remind me of Jesus at all, far from it. I categorically reject him. He is not in my Heaven and won't be until he has paid to the last (not that I don't want him to, be able to, to make it) and totally renounced his blasphemous teachings about Jesus and anything else required of him by God.

        Peace, Real Peace,

        Tom Usher

    • So FOX News mentions Mosab Hassan Yousef again on January 2, 2009, and all sorts of people go scrambling to Google on it. They find their way here just out of curiosity. One person leaves a pro-Islam, pro-Mohammed comment.

      Well, let me enlighten you all a little more. FOX News is just doing the pro-war thing. They are doing the pro-false-Zionist thing. I'll tell you, you aren't going to see them building up Mordechai Vanunu, who is a Jew (ethnically) who also became a Christian. Mordechai Vanunu leaked in 1986 the fact that Israel had an illegal nuclear weapons program with weapons.

      He has been abused and has spent 18 years imprisoned by the demonic Israeli liars for revealing their secret, which they still ridiculously deny (the official position is that they don't deny or admit — Right, and what does God think about that?).

      Look, I'm not for the Likudniks or any of the top Israeli political parties. I completely disagree with the Zionist Project. I also though completely disagree with Islam and for similar but not identical reasons.

      So don't come here expecting to have me say that either side is right. I will say, and have said often, that Israel's is the greater sin in the whole affair. I absolutely despise that they horned their way into the area and drove people out via terrorism and warfare to steal, yes steal, land under the banner that Canaan is still paying for Noah's son buggering a drunken Noah.

      The United States should be ashamed of itself too for supporting it then and now.

      I say God bless those Jews who at the time before the Zionists started their plan and all throughout it said that it was a bad idea. I say very plainly that if it were not for those pro-peace Jews now in Israel, Israel would already be a hole in the ground. It isn't going to protect Israel indefinitely though.

      Blessing of truth,

      Tom Usher
