In a compelling episode of Dr. Phil, Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas’s cofounder, made bold statements about the presence of anti-Jewish sentiment in Islamic culture.

He highlighted the widespread support for Hamas among Palestinians, describing events like October 7 as part of a “holy war” and warning of internal conflicts without Israel as a common enemy.

Yousef also criticized pro-Palestinian activists for providing cover to Hamas, suggesting they would face brutal consequences if targeted by the terror group.

Despite his initial involvement with Hamas, Yousef eventually turned against their violent methods and chose to assist Israeli intelligence covertly. His experiences and transformation are detailed in his autobiography, Son of Hamas.

In a conversation with renowned psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw on Tuesday, the oldest son of the founder of Hamas described his childhood in an environment saturated with anti-Semitic sentiments, which he linked to ideological interpretations of Islamic texts.

He clarified that these texts do not explicitly endorse hatred towards Jews.

“There’s lots of hatred in that culture against the Jewish people; it’s not a secret,” he said. “In fact, the Muslim belief system has a fundamental problem with the Jewish people.”

Sharing his personal experience, he described the Jewish people as “the most amazing, most productive, and most successful nation in the world that doesn’t harm anyone else,” while attributing Muslim hatred for Jews to ideology.

“They don’t have a reason except the ideological reason, and that is in some Islamic texts they say that Muhammad had a problem with the Jews, and Muhammad is their Prophet so they follow his footsteps,” he said. “But in reality, Muhammad did not write a word that says anything against the Jewish people.”

“You can say hatred is one motive, but it’s not only hatred,” he added. “It’s human delusion. It’s envy. It’s anger.”

He went on to characterize Hamas’ actions as an effort to carry out ethnic cleansing and a part of a larger agenda to assert dominance disguised as a religious crusade.

“There is lots of violence, and what Hamas did on October 7 was an attempt for ethnic cleansing,” he said. “In fact, they succeeded in ethnically cleansing close to twenty Jewish communities, and this shows you their intention: they want to dominate.”

“This was a holy mission; it’s a holy war,” he added. “In Islam, to kill for Allah is a way of worship. This is the stuff that nobody likes to talk about.”

After Dr. Phil brought attention to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency’s (UNRWA) endorsement of indoctrination in Palestinian education, where children are taught to admire terrorism, Yousef pointed out that in Palestinian society, having a child killed in this manner is not only accepted but also actively promoted.

“This is practically what [my father] did in real life. When he had to choose between the cause and his own son who saved his own life,” he said. “In fact, I sacrificed everything to save his life, and my reward was to be disowned, shunned, and he publicly stated that my blood is allowed [to be spilled].”

“That was some 12 years ago, 12 years before I disowned him,” he added.

Dr. Phil pointed to student organizations’ reactions to Hamas’s October 7 massacre, claiming they “reveal a disturbing degree of Ivy-covered intellectual rot.”

“Americans nationwide have been appalled and shocked. The leadership of these supposedly highly sophisticated schools are so busy virtue signaling that words are violence, but violence, horrific, inhumane violence, is social justice that they have forgotten it is their job to teach their students to think and to test reality,” he said.

After that, he displayed a video of Yousef agreeing with disappointment at the American backing for Hamas, and condemning the lack of understanding surrounding the group’s real identity and goals.

“To all those students, I say that it’s very disappointing to see Americans supporting Hamas and thinking that Hamas is a cool thing, while Hamas does not respect any of those followers. While those followers don’t know that Hamas would torture them and massacre them with no mercy. They [Hamas] call them [American supporters] useful idiots. They don’t know that Hamas is a dark, black hole,” he said.

“You have no idea what you’re talking about. I am being emotional. I have the right to be emotional because I speak on behalf of the children, as a Palestinian child,” he added.

According to Yousef, young Americans supporting Hamas can be attributed to the fact that “the majority of people lack purpose.”

“They want a cause, and without a cause, they don’t exist,” he said.

He further emphasized that these supporters are backing a destabilizing entity that poses a threat to global stability and are considered as helpful “useful idiots” by the Palestinians.

I spent lots of time in Hamas’ presence with other Hamas leaders and members from different districts. Then, most importantly, I worked with the Israeli intelligence, and I had the honor to be a part of the counter-terrorism unit; and I was born there and part of that culture, part of that religion, and I barely understood this monster. This is why I described it as a black hole. Then some people hear about Hamas, or they see an avatar of a Hamas fighter carrying a rifle, a ‘freedom fighter,’ and they think it’s a fancy idea to support such a monster. This is why I call them idiots, absolutely idiots, because they don’t know what they are supporting. They are supporting a monster that has been hijacking an entire society and endangering the entire Middle East, pushing the world toward a global war.

“Instead of condemning such a monster that just committed ethnic cleansing against innocent people, then kidnapped hundreds of hostages, then used their own people as human shields — none of those pro-Palestine people condemned Hamas up to this day,” he added.

Yousef explained that they are supporting “not only the enemy of Israel [but] the enemy of civilization.”

“So, when I see protesters on campuses like Harvard, of course, I was outraged. I am still outraged. What’s happening is insanity. Those pro-Palestine people need to go to a mental asylum,” he said.
