Book Description

March 2 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good choice March 19 2010
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!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, informative and enlightening. Sept. 2 2014
By Russell
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

By William L. Fahrner TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamas in the Crossfire Aug. 29 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A must read for anyone who is really interested in how things REALLY work in the Middle East. I was riveted by the gripping story of a boy raised in the atmosphere of privilege yet had a will to think through what was really happening and to act on what he felt was right in spite of his upbringing. He loved his family and his father in particular and it is a bittersweet tale indeed.

Truly an amazing book. It shows what can happen when we remove the eye for an eye factor in the relationship between Israel and the Palestinians, or for that matter through out the world's countries. A very moving story, touching and honest.

Very informative; very gutsy. The book has an insider's point of view that you won't find anywhere in the MSM.

Well worth reading.
