Another Muhammad Movie in the Works

In HAMAS, ISLAM, MUHAMMAD, SON OF HAMAS on September 19, 2012 at 16:44

Son of top Hamas leader to produce epic historical account of the prophet Muhammad despite controversy surrounding Anti-Islam film.

Mosab Hassan Yousef, author of the NY Times bestseller Son of Hamas, condemns the film Innocence of Muslims, on one hand, and the ignition of violent protests throughout the Arab world, on the other.

Innocence of Muslims is clearly not even worth mentioning,” released Yousef, the son of a top Hamas leader who turned his back on his father’s terrorist organization and worked to save the lives of many innocent people from terrorism. “While I personally find this Anti-Islam ‘video’ tasteless and insulting, it is the price we pay for democracy and freedom. This video is obscene and offensive to both Muslims and non-Muslims and to make matters worse, political and religious parties are taking advantage of this state of chaos and confusion to push their agendas. And when governments submit to their will, they reward and legitimize the terrorists and threaten everyone’s freedom to hear the truth and openly express their opinions. Our freedoms cannot be hijacked by violence.”

Brushing off the accusations across the Middle Eastern media that Mr. Yousef played the lead role in the video he commented,“Anyone with the ability to see with their eyes, can see that these are unjust lies spread as a smear campaign against me. Another form of terrorism. More importantly, I am saddened by the murder of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the three American security guards in Libya,” he added, “which Al-Qaeda as it turned out, had plotted to execute on 9/11 regardless of the movie. My condolences to the victims’ families.”

Recently back from his trip to Israel where Yousef announced his plans to make an epic $30M film version of the Islamic leader, Yousef said his vision will not insult Islam nor be a religious film, but be based on historical facts taken from the most trusted Islamic resources. “Islam deserves to be represented in this arena like all other religions. We cannot expect religions to peacefully co-exist if we do not have some sort of equality in how we can celebrate all religions and question their beliefs.”

Unlike convicted felon Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, aka Sam Bacile, the man behind the film Innocence of Muslims, Yousef was born a Muslim, the grandson of an Imam, and the son of an Imam who also founded the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas. Yousef is now casting the film and promises that it will be at par with some of the most respected Historical movies produced in Hollywood and around the world.

  1. I am so Happy To hear from you again. I prayed for you this morning (I live in NY) and wondered how things were going. Thanks for posting.

  2. So it is safe for Mosab to now travel to Israel…that is good news!

  3. Amen Yousef! I have kept my commitment to you to pray dilligently every single day for your movie of truth to have it’s day. The Father is faithful and there is nothing more that I would love than to be considered to be in the background for the most important movie to be released in our time!! Aleah Jordan

  4. Respectful Greetings to Mosab Hassan Yousef et al, I highly respect you for your work to protect Israeli Jews and other innocent people from terrorism, and publicizing the dangers of militant Jihadi Islam to all free nations and societies. I hope and pray that God will guide you to present a practical, realistic, yet inspirational, vision for true peace between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples, which would have to involve overcoming militant Islamic Jihadi ideologies, and having both peoples, and all peoples of the world, cooperatively work together for the advancement of Spiritual Love and Goodness (the one and only true God), for the mutual benefit of everyone. I am also pleased to know that you are defending freedom of speech; since without unrestricted freedom of speech, there is no defense against forces of violence, oppression, and evil. I hope that your “Muhammad Movie in Progress” will find a respectful, but totally honest, way to scrutinize allegations about unnecessary excessive violence, sexual abuse, intolerance of criticism, and other serious character flaws, that have been attributed to the Islamic “Prophet.” While I agree with you that criticism of Islam and its founder should be respectful and dignified rather than vulgar and obscene, I hope that you will not “whitewash” any serious character flaws that Muhammad may have actually had, because suppression of truth, no matter how well-intentioned, cannot ultimately lead to a world of peace, love, and good-will. It seems to me that there is a need to question whether Islam, per se, based on its authoritative sacred texts and the Sunnah or example of the Prophet, is or is not intrinsically compatible with genuine peace, tolerance, love, freedom, good will, and productive ways of functioning and thinking. My own open-minded study of various critiques, defences, and neutral/objective studies of the origins and historical development of Islam leads me to suspect that Jihadi Terrorism, oppression of women, suppression of independent thinking, and other serious evils, seem to be intrinsic to the foundational elements of Islam, rather than merely being an aberration or misinterpretation of Islam.

  5. This a great goal…Jesus bless all your steps mosab




  6. Greetings Mosab,

    I think it is fantastic that you continue to bring understanding and insight in to what is a widely misunderstood and fear filled debate. I have no doubt that you will represent the film in a way filled with honesty, grace and compassion. May the Lord continue to bless and prosper you in all you do – your courage in pursuing truth over political correctness to bring about tolerance and understanding is inspirational. I will be praying daily for you and this project.

  7. God Bless you Mosab.The book of Psalms says…You shall Live to declare the works of The Lord.
    May you live long and Gods Hand cover and protect you wherever you go,so that The Truth of Gods Love in Christ Jesus be Revealed to The World.

  8. Glad to hear from you. Hoping to see the film soon. Peace in our hearts, peace in the world. “Love your enemy” as our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us. Amen

  9. Dear Sirs Thank you so much for you tremendous article Please put me on your newsletter list and keep me in touch with all you are endeavoring to achieve Regards Marshall Paddison (a Messianic Jew) and a studying and prayerful heart towards bringing all Islamic people out of bondage and darkness into “His” freedom and light

  10. This is great news Yousef! I look forward to seeing your movie, which I have no doubt will be unbiased and truthful. We all need to know the truth about Islam and the prophet Mohammed. A truthful movie will provide a platform for balanced dialogue. Most of us, I think, know very little if anything about Islam, the Koran and Mohammed…other than what we are exposed to in the media. God bless you in this production. You will be in my prayers!

  11. God bless you always, dear one. Most sincerely, Elizabeth Ann (McClure) Kirby

  12. If you want to promote my message about the muslim reactions for the anti-islamic movie you can share my photo from my blog. We cannot be silent, persecution must come to an end for christians. You have a great blog, congratulations!

  13. Great to hear that! I Pray That will assist you to accomplish what he have put in your herat brother Mosab! God Bless You!

  14. Hello Mosab I’m very happy to hear that you are alive and well. May God bless you as you aim to tell the truth in your film. In fairness, I’m sure you will be much more balanced and honest in your approach than “Innocence of Muslims”. If Mohammed did some good, people have to know about that, too, right? But in order to defend the truth we also have to expose the lie. We are blessed with many years of Reformed theology with a solid understanding (thank the Lord) of what the Bible says about grace and God’s Providence and the Covenant. Please check out this website, and especially the confessions on this page: I will pray for you. The Triune God rules! Herman van Barneveld

  15. God may keep you in His tender care! To seek and love the truth in such circumstances is a great gift from the Holy Spirit.
    In the 19th century lived a man, his name was Isaac Lichtenstein, he was district rabbi in Hungary but after reading the NewTestament he became a follower of Jeshua. He began to preach in his synagoge about texts from the New Testament. “The Papacy soon learned of the existence and significance of the man, and a special emissary from the Pope visited Tapio Szele with tempting offers if he would but enter the service of Rome. To all he had but one reply: “I will remain among my own nation, I love Messiah, I believe in the New Testament; but I am not drawn to join Christendom. Just as the prophet Jeremiah, after the destruction of Jerusalem, in spite of the generous offers of Nebuchadnezzar and the captain of his host, chose rather to remain and lament among the ruins of the holy city, and with the despised remnant of his brethren, so will I remain among my own brethren, as a watchman from within and to plead with them to behold in Jesus the true glory of Israel.” (
    Christianity as religion: manipulation and projection of people’s will, it is not about the truth, God and freedom in Christ. If the muslim people need to know who was realy Mohamed, and need to know that Isa is more then a prophet and they have promises from God; and the believer of Judaism need to make difference between God’s word and tradition and they need recognise in Jeshua the Messiah, then we christians need to make difference between a living relationship with Him and churchism, and we need to rerecognise Jesus and invite Him again and ask for forgivness.

    It was great blessing to read the book: Son of Hamas.

  16. I have read Son of Hamas and am very interested in the upcoming movie about Mohammed. I am quite ignorant of Islam and hope to understand more.

    I am hoping in the spirit of the Son of Hamas, Mohammed will not be portrayed as “the enemy”. The enemy is the ideas that he initiated.

  17. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to seeing the movie. I do not believe that many Muslims truly understand the history of Muhammad as a person and that he had 12 wives and had sex with a 9 year old child and bragged about it to his friends. That is why Muslim men like to marry 12 year old children and tear up their bodies inside.

    I also believe that Muhammad was jealous of the young men hanging around him when he had 12 wives and that was why he made his wives wear scarves and cover their bodies from head to toe. Hubert E. Bullock

  18. I just finished reading your book, I could not put it down! God bless you and may Christ be with you and your family.

  19. It’s great to see new posts on this blog.

    I had been wondering if there, somehow, was any connection between Mosab’s announced movie and “Innocence of Muslims”. – It looks like a pilot or trailer made from half-finished material.

    However, many if not all of the scenes in “Innocence of Muslims” are also based on authentic Hadith and present day events. It should have had references to the sources in captions so that westerners and even the muslims themselves could have understood its merit.

    Hopefully, this release against “Innocence of Muslims” will improve the reception of Mosab’s movie and the sales of Son of Hamas 😉

  20. I just finished reading your book..thank you for sharing your incredilbe story. I feel your pain, the separation from loved ones in the pursuit of TRUTH.

  21. Mosab i just read your book (finished it today) and felt like the war/fighting was over… yet today on the radio they said attacks were made on Israel by Hamas. Clearly, nothing is over.

    Do you think it would have served God’s will to stay there and continue to work undercover? Your story is amazing and I completely understand how you arrived to where you are present day. I put myself in your shoes and I think, ‘nothing is over, it continues – people only hear snippets of information through news and our fast paced lives/laziness inhibit us from researching the truth of what happened this week in Israel’.

    Do we just pray? As you write in your book, praying alone can lead to laziness and is not action. I find that is true for me in my personal life.

    Anyways I’d earnestly welcome your feedback on what is going on currently in the Middle East and how we as a people can support our fellow man.

    At the same time, more people on this planet die from disease then war…

    It just causes me such headache, frustration and anguish as we kill each other – regardless of the reason.

    In Christ,

  22. Dear Mosab,
    I sat down to read your whole book through and found it interesting, I do not blame you much for the actions you decided to take not even a change in your faith because they are basically individual decisions.
    I am only worried with the renewed clahes in Gaza which is today on all the international TV stations, as I watched the carnage this morning, my mind flashed to you and asked myself several questions. how many Mosabs are on the street trying to make Isreal be the victor? You found a new heaven in the US living comfortably and watching the sufferings from afar because I am not sure you will ever want to go back to palestine, not with your revelations.
    The only problem and concern I have for you is that the Arab blood is very stubborn, no matter how affluent you are in the US one day you will miss home and contrary to your claims that your action saved many lives i am not sure the Israelis see it that way, you may be faced with the bare facts later. That you changed your faith to please them may not be enough gurantee for you to be accpted if you are really conversant with the going on in the intelligence circle, You will remain an Arab with a lot limitations.
    You see, I personally dont hate anybody including the jews but your views about Islam or the Quran is either read in defective form or a camouflage to please and secure yourself a safe heaven.
    The just concluded US election with pose a serious threat to the current fragile peace because it was not Romney that lost the US election but Bibi and events that will follow in the days ahead will prove that. I do not know how you can be of help now, I wish Loai will give you a full brief.
    No matter the situation Mosab tread the path with some caution and never be over zealous or over confident of your prince status in the Intelligence circle you can outlive your importance and will follow will be better imagined.
    All I know is that you are holding a double edge sword, how you play it is entirely your affiar, hairan hairan sharran sharran.

  23. Dear Mos, We would be glad if you can share your experiences on Let we save Palestinian from hater.
    Thank you.

  24. Dear Yousef,
    We are under no illusions how the Muslim will react to a depiction of their prophet, by an ex-Muslim, in some ways, the prior B grade movie wasn’t much of a threat – noone would take it seriously – except those who wanted to for their own purposes. Yet Islam won’t change under the pressure of carnal movies, it’s the spiritual Word that is our sword, the only instrument that demolishes fortresses (2 Cor.10.4),
    Best wishes, my friend,
    Charles Soper

  25. Dear Joseph,(was that what youre called now?:) your story moved me to tears and I and many with me are thankful to God that you accepted Jesus as your saviour.
    You have a great courage, but its given by Jesus, without him we can do nothing as He says himself.I will pray for your father and the rest of your family that they will also see the light of Christ,hope to see you in Heaven one day!Remember to always stay humble as God stand against the proud. And have faith in what Jesus have done ALONE…not your own deeds, but I think and hope thats already ur faith.:) Stay safe in the name of Jesus, Amen

  26. Praying your movie project is going well, can’t wait to see it. Wish I could be a part of it.
    Keep the faith!

    Much love in Christ,

  27. Hi Mosab,
    I am reading your book, and I love it. I am learning so much through it about things that I have been wanting to understand for a long time. Thank you.
    God bless you, keep you safe, give you wisdom, and most of all, draw your heart ever closer to him.
    (I hope and pray that you movie is going well. My brother is a producer who loves to convey Gods’ truth. It certainly can be difficult work).

  28. Mosab, I just finished reading your book “Son of Hamas” what a wonderful story! When I read the book from cover to cover I said to myself this man is “ABRAHAM” You left the riches of your land, your family, and chose to live with Jesus and sojourn in a foreign land. May God Bless you.

  29. read your book and it was just……. wow!…amazing, we must love muslims but hate the systems in which they trapped , I thank God for you and what you seek to do in trying to bridge the gap by declaring the ”TRUTH ”and Truth is powerful that will set muslims free according to Jesus… I just want to encourage you with these verses from Isaiah:41

    “But you, Israel, my servant,
    Jacob, whom I have chosen,
    you descendants of Abraham my friend,
    I took you from the ends of the earth,
    from its farthest corners I called you.
    I said, ‘You are my servant’;
    I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
    So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
    For I am the Lord your God
    who takes hold of your right hand
    and says to you, Do not fear;
    I will help you.

  30. “To God be the glory…Great things He hath done, So loved He the world that He gave us His son…who yielded His life, and atonement for sin, and opened the life-gate that ALL may go in…”

    Praise God for this new work of His grace in saving Mosab and many other unknown Muslims and strengthening their arms…as we already know, ONE with God is a majority…

    I believe your testimony Mosab and pray you and your family and nation will be saved by the Only Wise God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ and bring more glory to His Great Name.

    “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye ? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. ” Matthew 5:44-48

  31. Hey man love your book love your story please dont make this movie just keep up your work with hopefully you start a family soon and all that good stuff please dont attract more heat to yourself

  32. Dear Musab, I bought your audiobook version and could not stop listening! I finished it in 3 days (sleepless nights, driving and every break I had was for listening) You have turned my life around (I am 50 years old) and I know I will never be the same. You did a good job in honouring your father in the book, cause every time I see him I love him too and have shed tears for him, I pray for your whole family. Please keep honouring your father, because even though he is lost and has done so many wrong things, God wants us to honor our parents, even if we disagree with them. I have two questions which I hope you can answer: 1 ) When are you here? is the Green Prince coming out? and 2) Is your voice in the book, because it sounds so professional (even with the accent) yours is the first book read by the author which I enjoyed, it sounds like you but it is so good, I thought probably you used an actor. Good job man! If you ever come to Australia, please let me know, mi casa es su casa.
    God bless you
    Alberto Marroquin

  33. I just read your book! God Bless you for your courage to do what was right! I know God was with you through the whole time. God can use anyone! Thank you for all the lives you have saved.

  34. I would like to express my respect and appreciation to Mosab Hassan Yousef for your honesty and humanity. You are a remarkable, thoughtful young man, who has tremendous courage and integrity. My heart goes out to you for having given up so much that is dear to you for the sake of higher ideals of truth and morality. The violence and destruction perpetrated by Hamas leaves one despairing, and asking, where is Man? If only there were more people like you in the world, it would be a safer and more ethical and spiritual place. May we see that soon in our life time, bH.

  35. Hi Mosab, Looking forward to seeing the movie. This will bring fire (of the Holy Spirit) in the Middle East and nobody will be able to quench it. Can’t wait…
