 Son of Hamas Speaks at Israeli Parliament, talks of peace

'Son of Hamas' Visits Israeli Parliament

Hmmm. Interesting he never mentioned Christ as "the solution", but then who knows what he was thinking or referring to...

May be someone to watch, as it will be interesting to see what comes of this- and him- in the future...

The last thing he would do is mention Christ as a solution in the Knesset. That is a slap in the face to Judaism and Muslims alike, one has to tread carefully when diving in these kinds of waters. The idea is to win Jews and Muslims not create a wedge at the onset. Jesus would have him be wise as a serpent yet harmless as a dove. It's not always convenient to mention Christ at every whip stitch, once a person is credible and becomes known as one who embraces peace and stability in the region he may or may not mention Christ publicly. Many politicians practice their faith without mentioning Jesus, but He is there with them and when asked they will speak privately about their faith.

Trekker, you may find it helpful to view other youtube clips of Yousef. There are many. I just watched some. He does explain his convictions clearly elsewhere, and I think you will see that he is not compromising in his faith! He mentions Jesus' name frequently.

On the other hand, there are plenty of professing Christians who boldly say “Jesus is the way” but they have little evidence in their own lives. Saying the name in itself is meaningless. One might simply be taking the Lord’s name in vain – and have little evidence of proof. Do you think this is true for Yousef? I don’t.

I’d say that Approved raises a valid comment: the need for consideration of others. Omitting the name of Jesus need not be a case of being ashamed of the name – but of protecting that name and and protecting people. What will the mention of Jesus’ name in the public media conjure up in the listeners’ minds: What kind of Jesus? Will it be the Jesus who brings peace, unity, hope and Life - or the Jesus portrayed through much of historical and present day Christianity? Quite possibly the later. In that case saying the name may merely aggravate divisiveness.

Could it not be said that Yousef’s life, in itself, speaks the name of Jesus clearly and accurately?
