His father, Sheik Hassan Yousef, is in an Israeli prison and wants nothing to do with his son. The son is now a Christian living in California, according to the paper.

“In his memoir,” according to The Post, “Yousef described growing up hating Israel and admiring the violently anti-Israel militant group his father helped found more than two decades ago. Israeli forces imprisoned him in 1996 after he bought weapons, but he says he became disillusioned with Hamas while in prison. He began working with Israel’s Shin Bet security service, which routinely tries to recruit Palestinians of all factions as informers, including those in prisons, by using blackmail or promising benefits, such as work or travel permits.”

Shin Bet is one of the agencies scrutinized in detail in Spies Against Armageddon, the forthcoming book by Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman about Israel intelligence and covert operations.
