In a PJM exclusive, the co-author of Son of Hamas writes that Mosab Hassan Yousef, son of the founder of Hamas, is indeed a security threat ... to radical Islam.

For ten years, Yousef, the eldest son of Hamas founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, was a spy for the Shin Bet (Israeli version of the FBI). In March, he became a bestselling author with the release of his autobiography, Son of Hamas.
By the Shin Bet’s own admission, Mosab was the most valuable agent it ever had or ever hoped to have. He exposed countless cells, operations, and plots and was a key player in filling Israeli prisons with bomb-makers and terrorists.
“So many people owe him their life and don’t even know it,” said Gonem Ben-Yitzhak, Mosab’s Shin Bet handler. “People who did a lot less were awarded the Israel Security Prize.”

They turned him down.
And now they’re even trying to deport him. In terrorist-speak, that is a death sentence. If some Muslim zealot doesn’t cut his throat for collaborating with Israel, Mosab will be killed because he renounced Islam and became a Christian.
And why did DHS deny him asylum?
In her May pre-hearing statement, Homeland Security attorney Kerri Calcador cited a portion of a Son of Hamas manuscript draft, provided as evidence by Mosab and his attorney, in which “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.”
