Mosab Hassan Yousef

Hamas Whistleblower, Star of the Film The Green Prince & Bestselling Author of Son of Hamas


If you are a Palestinian child, born on the West Bank – you fight. However, in Mosab Hassan Yousef’s case, as he puts it, “Allah had other plans for me.” Ironically, (and fortunately) the path he was later set on, was one of peace and forgiveness. Read More >

When Yousef was growing up, he wanted to join the family business. Sadly, as it is all too common for this region of the world, the family business was death. His father was Sheikh Hassan Yousef – leader and one of the founding members of Hamas. As the eldest son, he was destined to follow in his father’s footsteps one day and take the reins of one of the most violent organizations in history. But then something miraculous happened. By chance, (or fate) he met a tourist in Jerusalem who gave him a bible to read. At this time, Yousef could not speak English, so, with his translation dictionary in hand, he meticulously deciphered this “infidel book,” and when he read Christ’s message to love your enemy, he cried all night. Something deep shifted inside him, shaking the very core of his beliefs. It was this simple message of love that was to shape the rest of his life and guide him on a new mission – for truth.

As Mosab read on, he started to see with different eyes, and doubts about Islam and Hamas began knocking at the back door of his conscience – then they started pounding. He began to see illusion all around him, which would later lead to disillusion. Hamas' brutality, which until then remained in his periphery, was now staring him straight in the face. He could no longer dismiss or deny the practices of Hamas he witnessed, first hand. He began to seethe and hate how Hamas used the lives of suffering civilians and children to achieve their goals. Not able to live with Hamas’ mission, nor himself anymore, he took a leap of faith, right over the border and into the arms of his sworn enemy – the Israeli Shin Bet. It was then that the Shin Bet, (the FBI equivalent in Israel) asked Yousef to thwart terror plots by doing the unthinkable – to become a spy and betray his nation, religion and family. However, at this time, what was most unthinkable for Yousef, was continuing to wade through the innocent bloodshed that he knew he could prevent. So, his career as an Israeli operative began, and the Green Prince was born.

In an incredible twist of fate, Mosab’s Shin Bet handler was actually the son of the General in charge of Israel’s armed forces. Like some kind of karmic Grisham novel, Yousef found himself between the leader of Hamas, and the leader of the Israeli army, being pulled in two directions, but ultimately, only devoted to one. For ten years, Yousef played this dangerous game, yet he found strength, and felt secure, with the backing of his new found faith. He became Shin Bet's most reliable source in the Hamas leadership, earning himself the nickname the "Green Prince" – using the color of the Islamist group's flag, and "prince" because of his pedigree as the son of one of the movement's founders. The intelligence he supplied Israel led to the exposure of a number of Hamas cells as well as the prevention of dozens of suicide bombings and assassination attempts on Israeli figures.

Yousef speaks to audiences, exposing the Hamas organization from the inside. He may surprise you with his frankness, courage and elocution when faced with the unimaginable burden (which he calls a responsibility) of risking his life and pulling back the curtain of Hamas – exposing its brutality and true goal of building an Islamic state upon the rubble of all non-Muslim nations. In addition, with his unique perspective and first-hand knowledge, he has been a sought-after commentator on developments in the Middle East. He has even written a bestselling book, The Son of Hamas, and stars in the film The Green Prince, which chronicles his intense journey, and is directed by award-winning filmmaker, Nadav Schirman.

Religious whistleblowers in the Arab world usually don’t live to tell tale, and with the current escalation of violence in the Middle East, Yousef’s message has never been so critical to the understanding of Islamic ideologies, and to have any hope for achieving peace for the region, and subsequently, most of the world. Mosab Hassan Yousef is a powerful speaker who reveals the truth behind terrorism. He speaks to colleges, religious groups and any organization wishing to know what the future holds for students entering into the world, businesses wanting to know how continued global violence and instability will affect them, as well as any group that needs to know if there is hope for peace. Audiences are consistently both shocked by his honesty and courage, while also finally feeling some hope about the end to this conflict. For if a former prince of terror can find his way out of the dark, perhaps his nation can too. Read Less ^

Speech Topics

The Son of Hamas: The Voice of Truth, a Hope for Peace

Destroying Israel is not Hamas’ final destination. Their aim is to raze all non-Muslim nations and to turn the world into one giant Islamic state – a global caliphate. In this presentation, Yousef educates audiences on the truth about Hamas, and its plan to touch every one of us. Armed with courage, first-hand experience, and the truth, Mosab is unwavering in his mission to bring us all understanding, and even next steps.

He discusses solutions to this crisis, like educating the Palestinian youth, and offering other opportunities and paths they may follow. Yousef has said many times that the younger generation in the Middle East is sick and tired of the elders leading them into senseless destruction and death. Perhaps this is our opening – our chance to begin the process of peace. It all starts with education and understanding, which is why he is here, after risking so much. With bold statements like, “Israel is not the problem in the Middle East, it’s the solution,” he hopes to start a real dialogue – even if it is heated – just to get the ball rolling and end this war.

He will share with the audience, his entrenched understanding of the concepts of Jihad, and why terrorists feel that when the kill – they win, and when they die – they win. He will also reveal the inner workings of Hamas’ war room, and how Hamas functions on a leadership level, and on the ground. This presentation applies to each one of us, whether we are an executive, educator, student, religionist, community leader, or simply a member of the human race. Audiences will leave with a new understanding of conflict, ideas to facilitate change, a plan for their own future, and simply – hope.

The Green Prince

Mosab sees the Abraham Agreements in which powerful Arab regimes like Saudi Arabia establish relations with Israel as the beginning of a political landslide in the region. This signals the end of terrorist movements, the end of the corrupt Palestinian revolution, and the possibility of an explosive economic prosperity in a Middle East without borders. The problem he sees is not a matter of land, but one of economy. It is through Arabs and Israelis working together as partners that will result in a better, peaceful life for all. Arabs have both human and financial capital and combined with Jewish expertise and world leading technology can they begin a new era in the strife-torn Middle East, finally giving peace a chance.

Mosab is anxious to share some surprising and original proposals of how specifically this vision of a new Middle East can take shape and unleash the potential that a unified Middle East could play on the world stage. Also, he will share his personal journey of how his lonely position of seeing Israel as a friend is now becoming an accepted truth.

Mosab’s experience combating terrorism and working with Shin Bet is described in his best-selling book, Son of Hamas. The award-winning Israeli documentary, The Green Prince, also tells his remarkable story. Read Less ^
