Yousef stated that “by collaborating with the enemy, by doubting the book of God, by betraying the Muslims, Mosab became an atheist”.

Israel said that Mosab was a “very good inside source of information” as he is the son of a senior Hamas leader in the West Bank, he was also shortly involved with the Al Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the movement.
