This statement of Mosab Hassan Yusuf has come at a time when Israel is fighting a terrible war against Hamas and there has been a large-scale destruction in the Gaza Strip. Earlier, Mosab Hassan Youssef had said that he was not at all surprised by Hamas’ attack on southern Israel on October 7 or by Hamas’ brutality.
Indians have no problem. Hindus have no problem with the rest of the world. We coexist, Christians coexist, Jews coexist. So why only it’s coming from the Islamists all the time, this violence?: @MosabHasanYOSEF son of Hamas founder, tells @PadmajaJoshi#IndiaUpfront pic.twitter.com/h6lgQ90G5s

Mosab Hasan Yusuf while talking to Indian news channel Times Now appealed to the people of India to stand against Hamas and he termed Hamas as an extremist organization.
“Hamas has a long history of attacking civilians,” said Mosab Hasan Yusuf, speaking to Indian news channel Times Now. They attack crowded areas, public transport, markets, grocery stores, clubs and even schools.” “I don’t know why the world is shocked by the attack on Israel on October 7, this is nothing new,” he said.
Let us tell you that on October 7, more than 2,500 Hamas terrorists attacked southern Israel by land, air and sea, killing 1,400 people, most of whom were civilians. Along with this, Hamas kidnapped 230 people including 30 children.
“Since its founding, Hamas has had only one goal in mind, which is to destroy the State of Israel,” Youssef said. “It is no secret that Hamas wants to destroy the State of Israel,” he said. They cannot accept Israel or Israel’s right to exist.”
Let us tell you that this battle that started on October 7 has become very dangerous and the Ministry of Health of Gaza under the control of Hamas has said that more than 8 thousand people have died in the Israeli attack so far. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to wipe out Hamas. At the same time, Hamas is still unwilling to release Israeli or foreign nationals held hostage. Hamas has said in its latest statement that it will gradually start releasing foreign nationals in the coming days.
Yousef is the son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef. He was dubbed the “Green Prince” (also the title of a 2014 documentary based on his autobiography) for his efforts to help thwart Shin Bet terrorist attacks during the Second Intifada in the early 2000s. Youssef said he was born in Ramallah and remembers well the founding of Hamas in 1986.
