    (149)

    Since he was a small boy, Mosab Hassan Yousef has had an inside view of the deadly terrorist group Hamas. The oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founding member of Hamas and its most popular leader, young Mosab assisted his father for years in his political activities while being groomed to assume his legacy, politics, status...and power. But everything changed when Mosab turned away from terror and violence, and embraced instead the teachings of another famous Middle East leader.

    Story
    Would you listen to Son of Hamas again? Why?

    Yes, Son of Hamas is very informative and the content seems balanced. I gained information about the nature of Islam that I couldn't get from Western writers in a country where being a Muslim automatically disqualifies a person from high office or make him or her a target for physical or verbal assault.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    It is written by an highly credible insider who cares about all parties involved and values human life. His honesty about the factions fighting for control of the Palestinian people makes me want to revisit the historical records of the events back then. With better information about what was transpiring behind the scenes, the context, I should be better able to fully understand the reported news which is history in the making.


    What about Mosab Hassan Yousef’s performance did you like?

    Since Mosab Hassan Yousef is remembering as well as reading, his narration reflects the emotions that he felt and still feels as he recounts events and his sentiments at the time. There are a few places where he doesn't quite navigate English sentences smoothly, but overall his reading is so compelling because he lived it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me very sad because of the slaughter of innocents but extraordinarily hopeful in the author's commitment, first to a Christ-like lifestyle and then to Jesus Christ Himself. A distinction that gives the author more credibility.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this book.
