Pastor Matt Smith of the Barabbas Road Church in LaJolla, California – the church that Mosab attends – is asking for support for Mosab:
Wednesday, June 30th, 8 a.m.
U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Immigration and Customs Enforcement,
880 Front Street, Suite 224, San Diego, California 92101
The following is the powerful letter Pastor Smith wrote to the court:
Your desire to deport Mosab Hassan Yousef is a desire for his death. It is also a supreme waste of a great national security resource. It seems you desire to take his book seriously when it speaks of him “aiding terrorists,” as you seem to take out of context, but you totally reject the very same book that claims Mosab as one of the most valuable fighters of terrorism in the Middle East. This is inconsistent at best. Your decision in this is a life and death decision.
There is a God. You would not have the ability to make this decision if God did not give it to you. Make the right one, you will be held accountable for it one day. Your pursuit of this is the pursuit of a death sentence for a patriot. If there is any thing I can do to vouch for this fine man tell me and I will do so as will my family and scores of other families across this country. He has sacrificed everything for freedom and for the sake of others. He has lost everything and is a hero, hence the book. Please reconsider your position and abandon your fruitless pursuit of the death of a hero. I will pray for you.
And from from the many blogging friends of Mosab Yousef, I’ll say Amen.
