Video: Fox News Interviews Mosab Hassan Yousef (UPDATE: Victory! Judge Grants Yousef Asylum)

His deportation trial starts today…

Daniel Halper at The Weekly Standard notes:

Idiotically, the Department of Homeland Security seeks to stymie his effort to gain political asylum here in the United States. In short, DHS’s case boils down to this: He has ties to terror. Yousef’s case: Sure, he was closely associated with Hamas (in a certain sense), but this was in the form of an informant, not as a terrorist himself.

His immigration trial is today, held in a court in Southern California. But, according to Yousef, whom I met with last week, DHS has promised to continue its efforts regardless of the outcome of today’s trial. Likewise, Yousef will appeal the decision, if he is not granted political asylum here. So, regardless, this promises to be a years (decades?) long legal battle.

I wanted to give the Obama administration the benefit of the doubt on this one, but this is starting to look like malice to me.

UPDATE:

Weasel Zippers: Victory!! Judge Grants Asylum to Ex-Israeli Spy and Christian Convert Mosab Hassan Yousef…

No explanation was given for the government’s change of heart.

    Its Ironic that Obama’s Home Land security would want to send this man back to the West Bank . It seems to me that Mosab is truly a friend to The United States . And perhaps that is the problem ? If he was a terrorist Obama would welcome him with open arms .
