VICTORY: Mosab Yousef Granted Asylum


Deportation to Gaza would have meant certain death at the hands of a vengeful Hamas...
Gonen Ben-Itzhak and Mosab Yousef
The son of a Hamas founder who became a Christian and an Israeli spy will be granted U.S. asylum after he passes a routine background check, an immigration judge ruled Wednesday. 

Mosab Yousef got the news during a 15-minute deportation hearing after a U.S. Department of Homeland Security attorney said the government was dropping its objections. The agency denied Yousef's asylum request in February 2009, arguing that he had been involved in terrorism and was a threat to the United States.

Attorney Kerri Calcador gave no explanation for the government's change of heart...
Congratulations, 

... so nice to see our prayers answered.  


And have a great 4th of July, sir!

I think Mosab's own personal Independence Day begins today. I have a feeling he will be an amazing force in the War on Terror.

Maybe for the next president, he will! This one was ready to send him to his death up until today... good grief.

He had plenty of reason for worry, too- with Team Obama talking to Hamas in not-so "secret" meetings

God bless this brave man, congrats Mosab!

That is wonderful news. Maybe all the cries for justice were finally heard.

Great news isn't it. It should never have come to this, but at least he wasn't thrown to the wolves, no thanks to the bureaucratic buffoons or to zero.

IMHO Obama got scared... he thought of the political damage to himself -of course- if Hamas crucified this guy... which of course is LEGAL there, ya know.

That, or he's using Mosab as a chip... I wouldn't put it past him

Rr: "that or he is using Mosab as a chip"...probably so. Still, glad to see Mosab won't be sent to sudden horrific death at the hands of our government. as Belvedere would exclaim," WOLVERINES!"

Congratulations Mosab! I have read your wonderful book and am so glad you are out of that awful place where you saw so much killing. And most of all, I am glad you have become a peace loving Christian.Your story kept me on the edge of my seat, and I do admire your fortitude and your intelligence, and strength of character. I was glad to see you have so many supporters on your web site. All the best wisher for a good and happy life in the good old USA.Glad we didn't let you down. Maybe you can be an asset to our Home Security people who seem quite naive.
