Los Angeles, CA - The “Son of Hamas,” whose recent book reveals  his path to Christianity and exposes Hamas terrorism, says that U.S. Homeland Security wants to deport him on charges that he is a terrorist.

Writing on his publisher’s blog , Mosab Hassan Yousef expressed his “outrage” and described what he called a “security system that is so primitive and naive that it endangers the lives of countless Americans.” Yousef wrote that he faces a deportation hearing on June 30 at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration Court in San Diego.

He questioned why he is being deported. “For what? For risking my life fighting terrorism in the Middle East for 10 years? For saving the lives of Israelis, Palestinians and Americans?”

His saga began in January, 2007 when he arrived at an American airport on a tourist visa without interference. “Seven months later, I went to the Homeland Security office, knocked on their door and told them, ‘Hey, guys, I am the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, my father is involved in a terrorist organization, and I would like political asylum in your country.’”

“They were shocked,” Yousef wrote on the blog. “I came to you and told you who I am to wake you up. I wanted them to see that they have huge gaps in their security and their understanding of terrorism and make changes before it’s too late.’

His application for asylum was rejected last February “because there were reasonable grounds for believing he was a danger to the security of the United States and [was] engaged in terrorist activity.”

In a hearing, he presented a draft of his book “Son of Hamas” as evidence in his behalf. Homeland Security senior attorney Kerri Calcador claimed that, “In the book, the respondent discusses his extensive involvement with Hamas in great detail. For example, in one portion of the book, a member of Shin Bet shows the respondent a list of suspects implicated in a March 2001 suicide bombing and asks the respondent whether he knows the individuals. The respondent indicates that he does know five of the people on the list and states that he previously drove them to safe houses.”

Yousef countered that he was working as a secret agent for the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) at the time. “No one — not me, not my father, not even Israel — knew at the time that these men were involved with suicide bombings,” Yousef argued. “I was the one who connected these men with the bombing at the Hebrew University cafeteria in July 2002. And Homeland Security would do well to remember that there were five American citizens among the dead. Apparently the agency needs also to be reminded that I was the one who located the terrorists and led to their arrest or death.”

He also claims that he posed as a terrorist while working for Israel. “Yes, I carried a gun,” he wrote. “Yes, I was in terrorist meetings with Yasser Arafat, my father and other Hamas leaders. It was part of my job. And I passed on to the Shin Bet all the information I gathered during those meetings and saved the lives of many people—including many Americans.

“Homeland Security has absolutely no idea of the dangers that lie ahead. For nearly 30 years, I watched from the inside as Hamas dug its claws deeper and deeper into Israel. They started awkwardly, clumsily, but they got good at it. And al-Qaeda is becoming more like Hamas.

“Al-Qaeda started with huge attacks like September 11. But bin Laden has learned from Hamas’s war against Israel how to bleed its enemy. Al-Qaeda understands how effective the Hamas strategy will be on American soil.”

A former Israeli security agent, identified as “G,” has confirmed Yousef’s account as a secret agent and said that Yousef’s spying saved the lives of many Israel

Yousef is asking for support by Writing letters to:

Kerri Calcador
Senior Attorney
U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Immigration and Customs Enforcement
880 Front Street, Suite 224
San Diego, California 92101
or call her at 619.557.5578.

Typical American stupidy. Build Mosques next to ground zero, but a man who continously speaks out against terror and consequently his life is in danger if he gets deported, is denied his rights of protective citizenship.

Intelligence work - spying, is a game of mirrors. What you see can be quite different than what is reality. There are often layers of 'games' (tricks - lies) and it is very difficult to know the truth (even for experts on the inside). This man may not be the person he claims to be. (I do not mean his pedigree / yichus but his belief system may be full of untruths).

just because he says he helped capture some terrorists does not mean that he is a good guy, he may have done it to gain trust thereby becoming a double agent, etc. its called collateral damage, don't get fooled by this guy, if he is real Israel and america would've helped him, they're not stupid.

If he would have been a real terrorist he would have been welcomed with open arms by the Obama Regime but since he exposed terrorism he is hounded. That what you get when you elect an Anti-American like Hussein Obama ands he nominates a moron like Napolitano to run Homeland Security.

Number One, you do realize this person is an Arab, right? Think about it and you will realize not all Arabs and Muslims are evil, and building a mosque at the WTC has nothing to do with supporting terrorism. You do concur this guy is a good guy and not a terrorist after all and deserves asylum, right?

There is no reason as of yet to believe this guys story. Why is everyone jumping to save him. Let's wait till we get more info. Usually it's not as simple as it seems superficially.

I have never said ALL Arabs or Muslims are bad. I HAVE said that that very, very few Muslims have taken a stand against terror. I have said that while some Imams mumble against terrorism when they need to, most of them end up being instigators of terrorists themselves.
Not everything is black and white. There are numerous shades of grey. That's why we need to apply our brains and use those grey cells to differentiate where and when we make distinctions between rights and abuse of rights. We also need to use our brains to differentiate between reality and fantasy where all people, situations and religions are equal.

I suggest you don't be naive, and think of the government as being run by smart people. (Anyone remembers when Bush supposedly had inside information regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?) A double agent does not speak out against his interests and can accomplish more by offering his services to the US government, working his way up, finding out secrets and then giving over that information to the enemy.

From the other side, if he would be a real terrorist or bubble agent then america would lock him up or at least deport him NOW

Have you heard of a turn coat terrorist? It happened in Iraq it happened in Afganistan, more than once the US has a right to be scared.
Israel has not confirmed the legtimacy of this guy. If true let Israel take care of their fieldsmen.
None of us have done more than read a few news items & blogs, we are not the Homeland security, we really know nothing.

Building a mosque in the WTC area is just like building a German cultural center in front of Auschwitz. It would make no difference whatsoever if the Germans involved in the center had nothing to do with Nazis, or even if their parents were in the underground resistance; it would still be horribly inappropriate, and the same is true here. Especially since this imam behind the mosque is not nearly the anti-terrorist that he pretends to be.

Calm down, fellas. Are you guys privy to all the facts?! Do you know without reasonable doubt that the guy is legit?! I'm sure that if all he says is true, and that his heart is truly where his mouth is, the Israeli government will grant him asylum and protection if and when he'll indeed be deported.

Heck, I'm sure you guys never even read his book, and don't know exactly what he purports to have done in order to save innocent lives...

It's true that this man may be playing a double or triple game, but do you trust the DHS and ICE to find that out? What's more likely, that he really is a threat, or that they are incompetent and reckless?

Should this man want to do "teshuva" and become a devout muslim again, and they will promise him his "gan eden" trust me Hamas will make him take revenge, Hashem Yaracheim.

Also, if its true what he wrote in his book, and it really angered the Hamas leader i.e. his father, wouldn't they put a price on his head?? Something does not add up here.

Unfortunately the Muslim people can never ever be trusted. they say one thing a mean and do something totally different. It might be true everything that he wrote in his book, but still at the end of the day he is and remains a muslim.

"his $850000,00000 buisness."

$8,500,000,000 = eight and a half BILLION dollars.

Perhaps you ought to check your figures, crackland security?

Actually they're not worried about anybody - their main concern -is their own power. They need these illegals to vote for them.
