After several failed ceasefire attempts between Israel and Hamas, son of Hamas founder Mosab Hassan Yousef stated in an interview with Megyn Kelly that there will never be peace between the two sides.

Yousef, a staunch advocate of Israel, has been campaigning recently since Operation Protective Edge began 27 days ago.

The son of one of the founding fathers of the Hamas terrorist organization, he escaped and converted to Christianity over a decade ago, during which time he served as an informant for Israeli intelligence agency Shin Bet.

His father, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, was arrested a few months ago in connection with the murder of three Israeli teenagers: Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Sha'er and Naftali Fraenkel.

Last week, in an interview with CNN, he said that Hamas is a civilization that worships death. “Hamas does not care about the lives of Palestinians, or the lives of Israelis, or Americans; they don’t care about their own lives,” he said. “They consider dying for their ideology a way of worship."

Days later, he appeared on the Kelly File where he reiterated that peace between Hamas and Israel will never happen, and that the only way for Israelis to defeat them is to expose to the world what their true ideology is.

Hamas wants the children of Gaza to die for this ideology, according to Yousef. He added that during his own childhood, he (like all other Gazan children, he asserts) was raised to believe that Israel is the enemy.

“At some point I got tired of this game and chose a different path for my life,” he said.

He also mentioned that U.S. President Barack Obama, and the United States in general, needs to support Israel in its fight against this terrorist organization.

“Democracies don’t negotiate with terrorists," he said. "Hamas is the enemy of the United States of America. Hamas is the enemy of the free world. And what Israel is doing today in the region is fighting on behalf all the free people in this western civilization.”
