Homeland INsecurity

A good friend of mine is reading a book that he is dying to give me when he finishes it. Its called Son of Hamas and it tells the story of Mossad Hassan Yousef who is the eldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the key founders of the terrorist group Hamas.

The twist in this tale is that in 2005 Mossad was invited to a Bible study and subsequently became a Christian. He went on to go undercover for the Israeli intelligence agency Shin Bet providing key information that proved invaluable to the war on terrorism.

I haven't read the book yet but a news article caught my eye. It appears that despite Mossad's change of allegiance and subsequent work that saved many lives including Americans, on June 30 he is facing deportation from the U.S. Homeland Security because "there were reasonable grounds for believing [he] was a danger to the security of the United States and because [he] engaged in terrorist activity,"

Come on Homeland Security... The guy was undercover...working on our side!

Personally, I can't wait to read the book but because it came out in March, it won't include his recent encounters with those wonderful Keystone Cops at Homeland Security that are protecting us from evildoers.

What are they going to do for an encore...round up the Canadians?
