Read from November 17 to 20, 2012 — I own a copy

A gripping and chilling look into the life of Mosab Hassan Yousef, an Israeli collaborator at the highest level within Hamas and Palestinian society in the West Bank, and the firstborn, beloved son of Hassan Yousef, one of the founders of Hamas. In Mosab's mind, through his awaking faith in Christianity, he succeeded in freeing himself of Hamas' fanatical tenets and imperatives for a purpose with a higher calling. Viewing events on the ground from the Palestinian side was at times discomforting, but this narrative was certainly a mind- and eye-opener vis-a-vis Hamas and PA politics as well as the courage a collaborator must find within himself or herself.
