Great News! Mosab Yousef Was Granted Asylum

To everyone who joined in the effort to save Yousef from certain death, thank you. Mosab Yousef was granted asylum at his deportation hearing this morning.

The son of a Hamas founder who became a Christian and an Israeli spy will be granted U.S. asylum after he passes a routine background check, an immigration judge ruled Wednesday.

Mosab Hassan Yousef got the news during a 15-minute deportation hearing after a U.S. Department of Homeland Security attorney said the government was dropping its objections.

The agency denied Yousef’s asylum request in February 2009, arguing that he had been involved in terrorism and was a threat to the United States.

Attorney Kerri Calcador gave no explanation for the government’s change of heart.

The immigration judge, Rico Bartolomei, ruled that Yousef will be allowed to remain in the United States after he is fingerprinted and passes a routine background check.

Finally some sanity in this new Bizarro World we find ourselves in.

This surely is great news.

    I cannot tell you how happy I am in my heart. I feel that this is a victory not only for Mosab for many in the Kingdom of God. I will continue to pray for Mosab, his ministry, his family and for his Israeli friend, Ghonim. k.
