Hamas Leader Hassan Yousef Threatens Third Intifada After Being Released From Prison Last Week
January 27, 2014
MIM: Another reason for implementing the death penalty for terrorists in Israel. Hassan Yousef is an active member of PASSIA the so called Palestinian Academic Society For The Study Of International Affairs. Many Western goverments support the organisation. For an example of some of Yusuf's activities at PASSIA see below.
Hamas Leader: Third Intifada 'a Matter of Time'
"The intifada will not wait for anyone," warns Hamas leader Hassan Yousef who was released from an Israeli prison just last week. Elad Benari
Speaking to Channel 2 News, Yousef said that Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas does not represent anyone other than himself.
"All the organizations of the Palestine Liberation Organization, as well as Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, are opposed to negotiations with Israel," he declared.
"The intifada will not wait for anyone," warned Yousef. "If it doesn't happen today then it will happen tomorrow, if not this month then next month. Eventually - just as the First Intifada and the Al-Aqsa Intifada broke out - another one could break out."
Yousef also warned Israel against starting a war in Gaza in response to the increased rocket fire at southern Israel in recent weeks.
"It would be madness if Israel launches a war with Gaza," he said, adding that "media reports in Israel that Hamas is upgrading its military abilities and experimenting with missiles in the sea will make some of the Israeli people go underground."
Yousef's son is Mossab Yousef, who admitted spying for Israel between 1997 and 2007.
Mossab relocated to the United States, changed his name to Joseph and converted to Christianity. He wrote about his experiences in a book, Son of Hamas, and addressed the Knesset last June.
Hassan Yousef disowned his son in a letter sent during a previous term in an Israeli prison.
Fatah Central Committee member Tawfik Tirawi reportedly told the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen network, which is affiliated with Hezbollah, that there will be no new Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza in the near future, and not even in 20 years. For that reason, he said, Fatah must resume the "violent uprising" against Israel – meaning terrorism.
"That's the only way things will change," he argued.
Fatah must "join all of the organizations, both those operating under the Palestinian Authority, and those outside it," he added, in an apparent reference to Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
