The son of the founder of the Palestinian military group Hamas has admitted to spying for Israel for a decade, feeding information about Hamas’ terrorist plots to Israel’s Shin Bet. Mosab Yousef said in an exclusive interview with CNN that he became a spy because he believed that Hamas was practicing “exceptional cruelty” against its members and “killed people for no reason”. “He has now written a book, ‘Son of Hamas’ detailing his exploits from his new base in the United States where he has lived since 2007. CNN could not independently confirm his story and Israel has refused to comment. In the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, a former Israeli handler said of Yousef: ‘One insight of his was worth 1,000 hours of thought by top experts.’ Yousef told CNN: ‘They offered me to work for them. My goal was to be a double agent and attack them from the inside.’”
