Second ‘son of Hamas’ leaves terror group, calls out corruption
Suheib Yousef, the 38-year-old Muslim terrorist son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef and younger brother of “the Green Prince”, left his jihad activities in Turkey recently and has taken refuge in an unnamed southeast Asian country.
Sheikh Yousef is a senior Hamas terrorist in Judea and Samaria, who Israeli authorities have previously jailed multiple times.
Another of his sons, Mosab, became known as “the son of Hamas” and “the Green Prince” after he secretly worked for a decade with both his father and the Shin Bet to thwart Hamas terror attacks, before seeking asylum in the US.
In the interview aired yesterday on Israel’s Channel 12, Yousef told Arab affairs correspondent Ohad Hemo that his last position was in the Hamas “political branch” in turkey, which he claimed is actually a spy unit utilizing advanced equipment to listen in on top PA leaders in Ramallah.
According to Yousef, Hamas intelligence gathering “isn’t for the Palestinian cause,” but is rather sold “to Iran in return for financial assistance,” which arrives through Turkish banks.
“In Turkey, Hamas leaders live in fancy hotels and luxury towers, their kids learn at private schools and they are very well paid by Hamas. They get between 4 and 5 thousand dollars a month, they have guards, swimming pools, country clubs… They ate in the best restaurants, I would see them eating at places where one course costs $200,” he said.
Throughout the interview, Yousef called the Jewish people “people of the Book” and stressed that Muslims “have no animosity toward you.”
Yousef said that he never worked with Israel, but remained loyal to Hamas. He said that it was corruption among Hamas members that compelled him to leave the terror group and speak publicly.
