I really enjoyed this autobiography. We rarely hear about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict from the "bad guys." Yousef reveals the humanity and good inside the man who he profoundly respects yet is targeted as a top terrorist threat. It is astonishing to go deep into the conflict itself as well, and learn that even Hamas' top leaders are not in control of the decision and path of their organization. Yousef makes it clear several times that Hamas is a movement, an idea, an initiate to avenge what his people felt they had lost.Every page is truly filled with suspense, especially with through such a unique perspective. It is equally interesting to track Yousef's own personal transition into Christianity as he finds his own values after being a devout Muslim throughout his childhood and under his father. What is most surprising is that he had never felt any anger towards the god of the Qur'an until he first decided to open up the New Testament. This is definitely a must read! Perhaps these words will lead to more understanding of the conflict from other nations and peoples that will help pave the way to peace.
