Product Description

About the Author

Mosab Hassan Yousef was born in Ramallah, in the Palestinian West Bank in 1978. His father, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, is a founding leader of Hamas, internationally recognized as a terrorist organization and responsible for countless suicide bombings and other deadly attacks against Israel. Yousef was an integral part of the movement, for which he was imprisoned several times by the Shin Bet, the Israeli intelligence service. He withstood torture in prison only to discover Hamas was torturing its own people in a relentless search for collaborators. He began to question who his enemies really were - Israel? Hamas? America? While in an Israeli prison, Yousef was approached about becoming a spy for the Shin Bet. Initially, Yousef accepted it with the idea that he would betray them and in hopes he could use the role to protect his father and family. Later, as Yousef saw the hypocrisy within Hamas and became a Christian, he used the position to save lives on both sides of the conflict. Yousef worked as a double agent within Hamas for nearly 10 years. He became a vital intelligence asset for the Israeli government while he served side-by-side with his father within the upper ranks of Hamas. After a chance encounter with a British tourist, Yousef started a six-year quest that jeopardized Hamas, endangered his family and threatened his life. He has since embraced the Christian faith and sought political asylum in America. His story was revealed in the 2008 Fox News documentary Escape from Hamas. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book review of Son of Hamas by Mosab Hassan Yousef

A compelling story of one man’s journey from the political intrigues of the West Bank, from a warm and loving family with an inspiring father into the loving arms of the Father. How a man left all that he knew to become a spy working undercover for Shin Bet, an Israeli intelligence service, all the while acting as his father’s driver, companion, bodyguard, the father who was intimately involved with the terrorist organization Hamas.
Yousef describes his life from the days when as a boy his father was imprisoned and tortured by Israeli intelligence as they tried to get into the heart of the terror organization that was increasingly striking fear into the heart of all Israel.
Yousef, the oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the seven founders of Hamas, opens the story with the tale of how he was arrested for the first time and then provides the historical and religious background to help contextualize the convoluted, spinning history of the last part of the twentieth century in the Middle East.
Sheikh is presented as being a truly rare soul; a man totally dedicated to the welfare of his people through the exercise of his faith. Since they share their names, I will refer to the father as “Sheikh” and the son by “Yousef”. The Sheikh came to live in the West Bank following in the footsteps of his own father who had also led his own community to serve Allah. Sheikh dedicated himself to the life of a devout Muslim, even though there was precious little support for him at first. Yousef grew up being totally in awe of his father, wanting to be just like him.
But, as he grew up in the West Bank, he also saw the draconian severity of the Israeli military suppressing his people and grew to hate them.

This book is written in a colloquial and involving language. It is full of captivating experiences, and easy to read and understand. I have read a lot of books on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but none like this. It really helped me understand the root causes of this conflict and see it from a perspective I had never seen. Very good book and very good choice for those who read it!

A definite page-turner!

Excellent book from the son of one of the founders of the terrorists group Hamas. You will also learn about the Muslim Brotherhood which is behind the protests and overthrow of the Egyptian government today. They first tried this in 1948 only to be sidelined by Israel becoming a state.

Son of Hamas gives an insiders perspective on the complex ongoing conflict in Israel's West Bank. By reading it, my understanding of the conflict is enriched as well as my empathy for individuals on both sides. Moseb Hassan Yousef's writing draws the reader in and makes him/her identify personally with the characters involved. He tells this true story in a candid, yet personal and very engaging way. I highly recommend this read for anyone who enjoys a well-told true action story, and anyone who is trying to make sense of events taking place in the Middle East.

This was excellent. It really shed light on the everyday life & tension between Israel & the Palestinian people - what continues to fuel the conflict. It confirms that the choices made by Palestinian leadership keep the people of Gaza hostage with no real knowledge of the freedom they are being denied. But there is yet hope through Jesus Christ who came set "set the captive free" both spiritually & physically.

This is a good book, written nicely, a real page-turner, like a good thriller. Mr. Yousef speaks about fairly recent events, and that makes someone like me, who lived then in Israel, to cross check every point with my memory - where I was at the moment this and that happened. Some people find hope in this book, but to me, there's no hope. Since then the situation only deteriorated, and there're too few people like Mr. Yousef who can at least try to be objective. After all, just like Golda Meir said: 'We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.' To some people this book will be an eye opener on the conflict.

""Shoter! Shoter!" [Guard! Guard!]" - I think this should be "shomer". "Shoter" means a "policeman", "guard" is a "shomer".

Mosab Hassan Yousef brings a new and intriguing perspective to the table. Not only was he a Hamas insider and an Israeli spy, but now he lives as a political refugee in the United States. 'Well rounded' would be one way to describe his perspective on the complicated issues taking place in the Middle East; and this is evidenced by his realistic treatment of all the parties involved.

The writing style is very conversational and down to earth, and the content is interesting and exciting. Not only is this an enjoyable biography about a daring young man, it is also an amazing tale of God's mercy and grace in an individual's life, as He draws him to Himself.

I would recommend this book for its picture of a loving God, its solution to the problem in the Middle East (the love of Christ), and its new and exciting perspective on life in the Middle East, and particularly, as a son of Hamas.
