Son of Hamas...

FOXNews.com has a fascinating article about Mosab Hassan Yousef son of someone in the leadership of Hamas. The article is mostly interview form and centers on Yousef's conversion to Christianity from the religion of peace. In commenting on what other Muslim's think of his conversion he provides one of my favorite quotes from the piece:

Yeah, they think that Christians took advantage of me, and this is completely wrong. I've been a Christian for a long time before they knew, or anyone knew. I love Jesus, I followed him for many years now. It wasn't a secret for most of the time, and this time I just did it to glorify the name of God and praise him. They're not dealing with a regular Muslim. They know that I'm educated, they know that I studied, they know that I studied Islam and Christianity. When I made my decision, I didn't make it because someone did magic on me or convinced me. It was completely my decision.

There is also a video report which I have embedded here as well:
