Fight terror, get deported ~ By Joseph Farah

Let's face it, there apparently is no shortage of incompetent bureaucrats working in the government. Like Joseph says in his commentary this morning, maybe it would be a good idea for those making this decision to deport Mosab Hassan Yousef to read his book.Oh, wait, they did?? Yes, they did. Joseph writes, "Since it is this book that is cited by U.S. authorities for the basis of a judgment to reject his plea for political asylum..." Yousef said, "If Homeland Security cannot understand a simple story like mine, how can they be trusted with bigger issues?" Ya think? Just sayin'...
The Department of Homeland Security's performance in his case "should worry the American people," Yousef said. And he's right. It's an understatement.

"If Homeland Security cannot understand a simple story like mine, how can they be trusted with bigger issues?" he asked. "They seem to know only how to blindly follow rules and procedures. But to work intelligence, you have to be very creative. You have to accept exceptions. You need to be able to think beyond facts and circumstances. Homeland Security has absolutely no idea of the dangers that lie ahead."

I have to admit it.

Sometimes I read WND headlines and can't believe what I am reading.

That's no reflection on the competence of my staff. It's just that chronicling the way America is changing for the worst so rapidly under the leadership of Barack Obama leads to some pretty sensational headlines.

Sadly, there doesn't seem to be even the slightest exaggeration in those words.

The U.S. is indeed trying to deport a best-selling author and insider who risked his life to blow the lid off Hamas' dirty terrorist deeds.

Mosab Hassan Yousef is the son of the founder of Hamas, one of the most notorious and radical terrorist organizations in the world. But he turned away from that life, at great personal risk, to spy for Israel, convert to Christianity, move to the West and write a book explaining it all to the world.

Yousef is here in the United States to warn the public of the dangers we face from terrorism. Yet, the U.S. government is suggesting he is "a danger to the security of the United States" and "engaged in terrorist activity."

If Yousef is a danger to the U.S., so am I – another Arab-American who has tried to explain who our real enemies are.

Yousef's life should be held up as an example to Islamo-fascists all over the world. Yet, the U.S. government is sending exactly the opposite message. You can hate America. You can terrorize America. You can blow up targets in Israel. You can preach Islamic hate speech. You can do all that and get away with it in America. Just don't repent. Just don't embrace freedom. Just don't turn away from jihad. That's when things get dangerous for you in America.

This would be a good time for every freedom-loving American to read Yousef's best-selling book, "Son of Hamas." It is an eye-opener. Since it is this book that is cited by U.S. authorities for the basis of a judgment to reject his plea for political asylum, you need to read it for yourself. You can weigh the evidence and make your own judgment. I've made mine. I was excited, energized, elated and encouraged by his story. It's a book the U.S. government ought to be translating into Arabic and disseminating free of charge all over the Islamic world. Instead, the U.S. government is in the midst of a witch-hunt against one of the bravest allies it could have in any individual – not a terrorist, but a man whose life is under threat from terrorists.

Yousef said he's not so much worried about himself as he is "outraged" about "a security system that is so primitive and naive that it endangers the lives of countless Americans."

"If Homeland Security cannot tell the difference between a terrorist and a man who spent his life fighting terrorism, how can they protect their own people?" he asked.

As WND reported, Yousef worked alongside his father, Sheik Hassan Yousef, in the West Bank city of al-Ghaniya near Ramallah while secretly embracing Christian faith and serving as one of the top spies for Israel's internal security arm. Yousef was recruited by Shin Bet in 1996 at the age of 18 while at an Israeli detention facility.
