Mosab Yousefby Dan Wooding : Jun 30, 2010 :

Judge agrees to grant him asylum after governement drops its objection to him staying

UPDATE by Dan Wooding: (San Diego)—Mosab Hassan Yousef, author of the best-selling, “Son of Hamas” has won the right to stay in the Unites States after a huge campaign by both Christians and Jews had called for him to be granted U.S. asylum.

With his friends in court to support him, Yousef got the news during a 15-minute deportation hearing Wednesday (June 30, 2010,) in San Diego, California, after a U.S. Department of Homeland Security attorney said the government was dropping its objections.

Yousef is the eldest son of Hamas founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, and became a Christian some time back after being given a Gospel tract in Jerusalem by a London taxi driver who was on vacation in the Holy Land.

After his conversion, he later became a spy for Israel’s Shin Bet agency and their leadership had praised his courage.

The battle to keep Yousef in American began when the DHS denied his asylum request in February 2009, claiming that he had been involved in terrorism and was a threat to the United States.Among his supporters is former CIA director James Woolsey who had had told reporters at a recent Capitol Hill dinner to honor Mosab and others, “My view is that the decision to deny him political refugee status was incredibly idiotic. It’s hard to think of a worse immigration decision in history. It’s fundamentally nuts.”

In the surprise turnaround, Attorney Kerri Calcador gave no explanation for the government’s change of heart, but those close to the case believe it was because so many people had spoken up for Yousef, pointing out the weakness in their case, and also because they believed he would be assassinated if he was returned to the Middle East.

The immigration judge, Rico Bartolomei said that Yousef will be allowed to remain in the United States after a routine background check and also that he is fingerprinted. “I will keep fighting the ideology that is behind terrorists because I know how they think,” he told reporters outside the courtroom.

Our goal is to save Mosab Yousef from being deported to Palestine by U.S. Homeland Security.

We want to keep Mosab alive and in the U.S.

Deportation to Palestine is a death sentence for this young Christian man.

Mosab lives in San Diego, California and is seeking asylum in the United States. He is a Palestinian man who was an agent for Israel’s Mossad for about seven years, after spending ten years in an Israeli prison. Mosab’s father is a co-founder of Hamas in Palestine, which is designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. government.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano believes Mosab Yousef is a national security threat, and wants to send him back to Palestine. According to Yousef  writing on his publisher’s blog, he is now Homeland Security File# A 088 271 051. He is scheduled to appear before Immigration Judge Rico J. Bartolomei at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Court in San Diego on June 30th at 8 a.m.

Time of the essence if we want to make a difference for Mosab.

Mosab met a tourist in Israel, was given a Bible, studied both the Bible and the Koran side-by-side, and eventually became a Christian. He is the author the book Son of Hamas, and is often known as Son of Hamas.

Yousef has been out of the service of Israel’s intelligence agency, Shin Bet, also known as Israel Security Agency (ISA), for about four years. His Shin Bet “handler” vouches for the work he did to protect Israel.

According to “The Handler,” known as “Captain Loai” and “G:”

For almost seven years, the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef – one of the founders of Hamas and one of the Islamist organization’s leaders in the West Bank — supplied G. with accurate information on developments involving the top brass of Hamas, plans for suicide-bomber attacks and the whereabouts of wanted individuals. Together, G. and Yousef prevented dozens of terrorist attacks and thwarted plans to assassinate leading Israeli figures, such as President Shimon Peres and Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.

Yousef’s code name in Israeli Intelligence was The Green Prince. When he arrived in America, he went to Homeland Security, identified himself and asked for political asylum. Over a period of months, Mosab documented his story with Homeland Security.  The result is the deportation hearing on June 30, 2010.
