"Son of Hamas" Guy Speak With Forked Tongue?

If this pans out, then Mosab Hassan Yousef has a lot of explaining to do. I'm not sure I believe the "infiltrate Christian churches" theory just yet.

Another explanation is that he really left Islam, hates his father's organization Hamas, but also believes Palestine ought to become a state. In that case, Israel would appear to be the enemy to an Arab from the West Bank.

You'll note that he doesn't say don't report terrorism. In fact he says do report terrorism, but not to Israel but to the Palestinian authority. Which kind of goes to the point of him being a Palestinian nationalist.

And I'm not sure why Palestinian nationalism is somehow antithetical to Christianity. At least, no more than any other type of nationalism.

Me? I'm a big tent Christian. I think scripture supports Zionism, but I don't think it's a litmus test for "true" belief.
