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. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.See all Product Description

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.Read more ›
A definite page-turner!
""Shoter! Shoter!" [Guard! Guard!]" - I think this should be "shomer". "Shoter" means a "policeman", "guard" is a "shomer".
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.
