Many immigrants enter the US illegally and many more overstay their visas and remain in the country illegally. They are in violation of US laws and may have committed other crimes, including possession of false documentation. Therefore, the law should be applied on them as on anybody else that breaks it.
On the other hand, there are many cases where humanitarian factors may dictate otherwise against punishment and/or deportation. Additional cases deserving consideration may involve those valuable enough to get special treatment.
This may be the case of Mosab Hassan Yousef who has been summoned to appear before a San Diego immigration judge on July 7, 2010, who is bound to pass a deportation judgement on charges of "terrorist associations".
In fact, Yousef is the son of a founding leader of Hamas and he is known to have given a safe house to five Hamas terrorists. Such a background would be enough in many other cases not only to deport him but to do so after a lengthy prison term.
Immigration problems have a tendency to be judged under very narrow premises and allegations. In the case of Mosab Hassan Yousef the man who is about to be deported is a Christian convert that will thus be a prime target for those who will condemn him as an infidel and a traitor.
He is not only a "traitor" to his Muslim faith but also a traitor to Islamic conspiracy to take over the World and establish a universal caliphate. Furthermore, the reason that he offered a safe house to those five Hamas terrorists was non other than he has turned himself among the highest prized collaborators of Israeli intelligence.
His service is so valuable because Israel estimates that his collaboration prevented many from being killed while providing useful information that thwarted numerous terror attacks. His handler from the Israeli Security Agency, Gonen Ben Itzhak, has him in such a high regard that he will face public exposure by testifying in favor of Yousef at the deportation hearing. According to Itzhak, he never killed anyone or did anything harmful to the US.
Nevertheless, the US government is ready to deport him. His travel documents have been confiscated. He may be facing a cruel death if this happens.
And such an injustice may happen while the Muslim adviser to President Obama, Dalia Mogahed, openly endorsed a movement started in Turkey by Fethullah Gulen seeking to restore the Ottoman Empire and expand it as a World Islamic Caliphate.
Mosab Hassan Yousef is the author of an interesting testimonial book titled "Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue and Unthinkable Choices" <get a copyHERE>. He is clear on the need to understand the profound difference between Muslims and Islam. He clearly states that "Muslims are wonderful people. They are peaceful and law abiding. I don't want people to be scared or look down at Muslims in this country or any other country".
But he also asserts that Islam "is a real danger". He describes it as "an ideology of hate and revenge, of forcing people to convert to Islam or be killed. This is the heart of the Islamic movement." And he goes further to state that there are no "moderate Islamists" and whoever thinks so is deluded. His book is one that we should read and believe if we wish to understand this dichotomy. A convert is often the best source of information about the dangers of his or her former faith.
Yousef gives us fascinating glimpses into the religious or quasi-religious fervor that either spurs or excuses the daily slaughter. He has apparently found peace in Christianity. Perhaps some day there will be many young men in the middle east like Yousef; if so and they predominate, they may one day bring peace to the land that has birthed the religions that dominate our planet. This book reveals new information about the world's most dangerous terrorist organization and unveils the truth about his own role, his agonizing separation from family and homeland, the dangerous decision to make his newfound faith public, and his belief that the Christian mandate to "love your enemies" is the only way to peace in the Middle East. Let us hope that many people read it and understands it. Let us hope that the US judge would too.
