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 Yousef—now called “Joseph”—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.

Mosab has one incredible story to tell you. i have a lot of respect for what he has done and is trying to do. The book gives you an inside look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from bith sides as well as an inside look at Hamas as well as Arafat's PLO. Beyond this he takes a serious look at faith and challenges us all to rise above our self-righteousness and truly love one another. i pray he continues his work. great book.

Amazing story of a man born in a weird place who went through all kinds of unique/brutal life experiences. When I see what he went through, I undrestand why he has balls - his life was threatened from the beginning. The book showed both good and bad parts of both Hamas and Israel. The book doesn't give a quick solution for the conflict, but it gives an insight into the chaos.

This is an excellent book that helped us gain perspective on Middle East conflicts. As an American I don’t think a lot of us understand why there is so much fighting in the Israel region. It also gave us a greater understanding of what Islam is and a greater compassion for those who follow Muhammad.
