Channel 4 News to ‘Son of Hamas’: “Are you a traitor?”


In this interview with Channel 4 News Mosab Hassan Yousef (aka Son of Hamas), after being asked “Are you a traitor?” sets out why he renounced his father, renounced Hamas and became an Israeli agent.

He blames Hamas for dragging Israel into this summer’s war with Hamas and blames Hamas for using their own people as human shields. He says Israel is a democracy and has a constitution under which people of all religions live. It is a fascinating interview and is a prelude to the new film about him called The Green Prince.

  1. I watched this interview on C4 TV News.

    Although I thought the interviewer, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, was reasonably polite — despite his question ‘Are you a traitor?’ — given the open support C4 TV News almost always gives Hamas. I thought with hindsight the whole tone was rather different from the enthusiastic way their main anchor Jon Snow reacted to the sickening tirade of Shlomo Sands, a genuine traitor if ever there was one.

  2. I think that Mosab Hassan Yousef did very very well against a hostile interviewer. I wonder if Krishnan Guru-Murthy in an opposite situation would be so aggressive with his questions if he was interviewing an ISIS supporter.

  3. Guru-Murthy is visibly shocked. His student grasp of ME politics can’t handle Yousef’s honesty and plain-speaking.
    Obama and Kerry urgently need briefing on the ME by Yousef.

    • I agree. He was very distressed he couldn’t get Mosab Hassan Yousef to condemn “Israeli brutality” in Gaza.

  4. I tip my at to this young guy. He’s obviously going to live under threat of death for many years, but he is willing to speak the truth. May God bless him!

  5. An extraordinarily calm, lucid and truthful account of the situation from someone performing under a fusillade of ridiculously hostile questions. Well done!

  6. Right here is the right blog for anyone who wants to
    find out about this topic. You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will
    need to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic
    which has been discussed for ages. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

  7. Look at another traitor here
    Why are you calling him a traitor?! He is not a traitor at all but a well known kind of British MP who would sell his mother for some votes.
    You know your time is running out when the Tories think you’re wrong!!!!
    Really? You must by completely stoned to think that the opinion of any British politician be it Tory or other has the slightest influence on international politics.

  8. What a brave and honest man Mosab Hassan Yousef is speaking the truth about Hamas and Gaza. The interviewer obviously has little understanding of what is really happening in Gaza and the middle east……..the interviewer just repeats the usual Channel 4 anti-Israel propaganda!

  9. That was actually one of the best interviews in relation to the ME that I have ever seen on tv (mind you, not that I watch tv for news anyways).

    That young guy is, sadly, a dead man walking as every Jew hater on the face of the planet will be out to get him for betraying the cause!
