This is a beautiful story, and completely captivating. The story details Yousef's experiences as a Palestinian Hamas "Prince" who became an Israeli spy and then Christian. I worried that there might be too much violence or things of that nature but found that while Yousef does share things as they happened, he does not linger on these types of events. If you love a good spy story, you will be intrigued. If you want a clearer understanding of what is going on in the Middle East, this book will be a tremendous help. If you love a good redemption story that leaves you with hope, this is for you. Yousef beautifully shares how his heart and mind gradually began to change to view all of humanity with love. His post script gives a clearer understanding of his religious views and hopes.
Casts a lot of light unto the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.
Very well told. It has given me a much more nuanced view of the conflict.
I would have never thought that someone who grew up in such a hostile environment and such deep rooted Muslim religious beliefs could ever soften his heart towards God Almighty the creator of the universe. It just goes to show that God can use the most unlikely people to reach anyone including a person who grew up in a family like this guy did.
Courageous young man. Incredible journey that is hard to believe but clearly factual. I would love to meet him and his father.
Awesome book. Give better perspective on the true nature of the conflict. Both sides believe they are fighting for the better good. Fighting for their people. Fighting for their faith.
Excellent storytelling from the man who lived it. Sounds like he is sitting across the table, telling the story of his life. Truly a very brave man.
This book is a must read, particularly for anyone with an interest in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Very well written--gripping and soulful. What a unique and remarkable perspective. Thank you, Mosab, for sharing your story. There may yet come a day when you can help lead the region to peace.
