Son of Hamas leader denounces the organization

In this story, the son of a top Hamas leader tells a reporter about Hamas leaders torturing their own members, and his progressive disillusionment with the organization and with Islam itself. Mosab Hassan Yousef, son of one of the founders of Hamas, has renounced Islam and embraced Christianity. He is now in the United States and has asked for asylum.

He believes that peace between Hamas and Israel is impossible. He said, "There is no chance. Is there any chance for fire to co-exist with the water?" There is a short video clip of the interview with Yousef here. Fox will be running a longer version of the interview in a program called "Escape From Hamas" airing on Fox Saturday at 10pm, with repeats at 1am and 4am, EST, and Sunday at 9pm, with repeats at 12 midnight and 2am, EST.
