Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a co-founder of Hamas, delivered a powerful speech at the United Nations, denouncing the organization his father helped establish. Yousef, 45, has had a remarkable journey from being part of Hamas to becoming one of its most vocal critics.

In the late 1990s, Yousef defected from Hamas, distancing himself from the ideologies and activities of the group, which is widely recognized as a terrorist organization.

His decision to work covertly with Israeli security services marked a significant turn in his life. During this time, he played a crucial role in exposing and thwarting numerous planned terrorist attacks by Hamas.

Yousef's transformation continued as he converted to Christianity, a move that further distanced him from his past affiliations with Hamas.

His 2010 autobiography, "Son of Hamas," offers a detailed account of his life, his work with Israeli intelligence, and his eventual conversion.

In his speech at the United Nations, Yousef aimed to reveal what he describes as the "true face" of Hamas. He characterized the organization as a genocidal death cult, highlighting its commitment to violent extremism and its impact on the region. Yousef's unique perspective as the son of a Hamas co-founder adds a significant weight to his statements, offering insights into the inner workings and ideologies of the group.

Yousef's journey from a member of Hamas to a critic and a peace advocate exemplifies a profound personal transformation. His efforts to speak out against violence and extremism have garnered international attention, making him a notable figure in discussions about peace and security in the Middle East.
