Mosab Hassan Yousef : Son of Hamas Speaks Out

Mosab Hassan Yousef says that moderate Muslims doesn't exist.  He says most terrorists think that they are freedom fighters.

Product Description

Since he was a small boy, Mosab Hassan Yousef has had an inside view of the deadly terrorist group Hamas. The oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founding member of Hamas and its most popular leader, young Mosab assisted his father for years in his political activities while being groomed to assume his legacy, politics, status . . . and power. But everything changed when Mosab turned away from terror and violence, and embraced instead the teachings of another famous Middle East leader. In Son of Hamas, Mosab Yousef--now called "Joseph"--reveals new information about the world's most dangerous terrorist organization and unveils the truth about his own role, his agonizing separation from family and homeland, the dangerous decision to make his newfound faith public, and his belief that the Christian mandate to "love your enemies" is the only way to peace in the Middle East.

From the Inside Flap

Before the age of twenty-one, Mosab Hassan Yousef saw things no one should ever see: abject poverty, abuse of power, torture, and death. He witnessed the behind-the-scenes dealings of top Middle Eastern leaders who make headlines around the world. He was trusted at the highest levels of Hamas and participated in the Intifada. He was held captive deep inside Israel's most feared prison facility. His dangerous choices and unlikely journey through dark places made him a traitor in the eyes of people he loves--and gave him access to extraordinary secrets. On the pages of this book, he exposes events and processes that to this point have been known only by a handful of individuals... Mosab Hassan ("Joseph") Yousef is the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founding leader of Hamas, internationally recognized as a terrorist organization and responsible for countless suicide bombings and other deadly attacks against Israel. An integral part of the movement, Mosab was imprisoned several times by the Israeli internal intelligence service. After a chance encounter with a British tourist, he started a six-year quest that jeopardized Hamas, endangered his family, and threatened his life. He has since embraced the teachings of Jesus and sought political asylum in America. Ron Brackin has traveled extensively in the Middle East as an investigative journalist. He was in Bethlehem, Ramallah, Gaza, and Jerusalem during the Al-Aqsa Intifada. He was on assignment in Baghdad after the fall of Iraq and more recently with the rebels and refugees of southern Sudan and Darfur. He has contributed articles and columns to many publications, including USA Today and the Washington Times. Ron served as a broadcast journalist and a congressional press secretary in Washington after graduating from the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism.

They are taught that they should rule the world. Death to all non-believers.

Teresa said...

My pleasure. It was a fascinating interview.

Teresa said...

Chris W,
This is on my reading list too.

Teresa said...

Dust'N Lint,
Exactly. Hopefully we can convert more Muslims. This is an amazing story.

LSP said...

A great story - there's a surprisingly large number of converts - don't often hear about them though.

God bless.

Ron Russell said...

Mosab is a rare one, not many of these guys ever convert. And even if they do have second thoughts I would think that most keep it to themselves knowing the dangers they face by coming forward. This alone makes Mosab Yousef a very brave young man. Thanks for sharing Teresa.

Isn't he special! Not!

Amusing Bunni said...

Hi Teresa, this is very fascinating and interesting.
I hope Mosab has changed his name and dyed his hair or something, because the nuts he is exposing are
gonna come after him. He's very brave.

I hope you are having a nice and relaxing Sunday.
Here's a (((Huggg))))), Bye, Bunni * Think Spring *

Teresa said...

Yep. I don't hear much of Muslim converts to Christianity. It is good to hear.

Teresa said...

Yes, he's a very brave young man.

Teresa said...

The Wolfman's Chronicles,
Would you say that not many sons of our Muslim enemy leaders have converted to Christianity?

In that respect I would say that he is special.

Teresa said...

Amusing Bunni,
Yes. He is very brave. He was just recently interviewed by Hannity so I doubt that he's changed his apprearance. But, I do believe that God is watching out for him.

Have a wonderful relaxing weekend and week!!
