Son of Hamas by Mosab Hassan Yousef
Book Review by D.I. Telbat
genre: true story/autobiography
Because of my own strong opinions and love regarding Israel, I was hesitant to read Son of Hamas. However, the more I read, the more the story intrigued and startled me. This is the best book I’ve read this year. I cannot oversell this book—a true story that takes place in Israel’s West Bank.
This amazing saga is about the son of one of the founders of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group. Each chapter is a year-by-year eruption of political intrigue, terrorist plots, and undercover meetings. As the son of a Hamas leader, Mosab Hassan Yousef (the book’s author) faced daily choices that impacted his life, his family’s safety, his people’s survival, and international peace.
One of the exciting aspects of this narrative is Mosab’s developing faith—a transformation from Islam to Christianity. Living two lives for the sake of his beliefs and the efforts he goes to in order to save lives, is truly inspirational.
If you have followed the conflicts in the West Bank for the past several years, you’ll relive some of those intense moments behind the scenes through Mosab’s eyes.
This book has strengthened my love for the people of Israel—all of them, including the Palestinians. The conflict in the Middle East is a spiritual one that needs reconciliation of the highest order—by the Cross of Christ.
Read this powerful book! I give it 5-stars.
To Mosab: Thank you for your story and your sacrifice, wherever you are. I will see you in glory!
