Cat Stevens Won't Denounce Hamas

Would you say you have contempt for a terrorist group like Hamas?

I wouldn’t put those words in my mouth. I wouldn’t say anything on that issue. I’m here to talk about peace. I’m a man who does want peace for this world, and I don’t think you will achieve that by putting people into corners and asking them very, very difficult questions about very contentious issues.

I can't answer for Yusef, but I'll answer for myself.

I don't condone many of the tactics used by Hamas, but I recognize them as a legitimate resistance organization that was founded to defend its nation from an aggressive enemy. I would do the same thing if someone invaded my country, though I wouldn't do it the same way.

Nadir: Does Hamas also demand that all humans in areas that they control adhere to their islamic superstitions?
