Why this Hamas leader will not tell you what you want to hear – Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East

Yousef regularly writes articles for local websites criticizing Hamas’ performance, such as his piece published in 2014 headlined, “Have mercy on Gaza and return favor to its residents.” In this article, Yousef held both Fatah and Hamas responsible for the ongoing Palestinian division, as these movements put their partisan interests above those of the nation. He also said that Gaza is going through an “unprecedented unstable political situation.”

In another article he wrote in January 2016 for Samanews, “Yes, we went wrong, but dare we admit it?” he asked, “Why do Islamic movements generally fail in politics and governance? Why are their chances of winning dropping at the popular level and why are they unable to keep their promises of change and reform?”
