Publisher's Description

Son of Hamas is now available in softcover with an all-new chapter about events since the book’s release such as the revelation of Mosab’s Israeli intelligence handler’s true identity, and Homeland Security’s effort to deport the author.
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 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.

    Son of Hamas, written by Mosab Hassan Yousef, guarantees readers a roller coaster ride of emotions. Yousef, the son of one of the founding leaders of Hamas, reveals his personal knowledge and experiences as part of the organization responsible for countless terror attacks. He also discloses his life as a double agent and how God used it to show him that the Israelis were not his enemies. Yousef goes on to share his own Damascus Road experience of coming to love and follow the Jesus of the Biblebecause of Jesus teachings on loving your enemies and those who persecute you.

    For American readers living after the 9/11 attacks, this book sheds light on the mindset behind such attacks, and yet shares hope that God can change hearts and lives just as He did Yousefs.

    The book certainly revealed my lack of knowledge concerning the geography and history of what we often call the Holy LandIsrael and Palestine and the surrounding countries. For that reason I sometimes found the events hard to follow. At the same time, I learned so much, because I began to get a picture of the worldview from which so many approach lifea worldview so opposed to my own.

    All in all, I came away with a new love, a new compassion, for those whom many would consider to be enemies. More than ever, I hope and pray that many more will come to know and follow Jesus as Yousef has. Knowing that his father has disowned him only gives me more respect for Yousef since he is from a culture in which honor and family are highly valued. Yet, he was willing to give up all to follow Jesus. It has challenged me to consider my own faith. What am I willing to do, to give up for Jesus? Does Jesus mean all to me?

    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. In Son of Hamas, Yousef reveals new information about this dangerous terrorist organization and unveils the truth behind his own secret role. He describes his surreal journey to a new faith that instructed him to love his enemies. And he tells the story of the agonizing decisions that led him to walk away from his family, friends and homeland.

    * I received a copy of the book from Tyndale House for this review.

    An awesome story of God's persistent love, even toward those who seem "unredeemable" to most of us in the western world. This young man risked all, including family ties and his own life, to know the true & living God. Also puts modern day Israel in a good light. You will not be disappointed by this book.

    This man's story is nothing short of astonishing. To read how the Lord moved, in his complicated and dangerous life, to lead him to Him was thrilling to read. He was granted Political Asylum in the U.S. (God bless America!) and, as far as I know, is still residing there in relative safety (there are many who wish to see him dead). I pray this man's story would reach many, and that many hearts would be changed.

    I couldn't put this book down! Very well written, gripping and real. This book did a good job in shining a light on the spiderweb of issues the world of Islam and consequently, the entire world, are facing. A must read for every American to help to understand this world, our position in it and our responsibility to the defense of Israel.

    It was very interesting to read how he first viewed things and then how God moved and worked in his life and changed his viewpoint. Very interesting to read.
