    Let Mosab Hassan Yousef go back to Ramallah and live the life of the average Palestinian, humiliated at the checkpoints, degraded as a potential terrorist everywhere he turns in Eretz Isroiel. I'm sure he's happy in sunny California where there is no IDF and no Shin Bet. Our country is not the Christian States of America, and (so far) there is no Christian Bureau of Investigation. Everyone lives here as equals under the law no matter their religion or origin. I don’t believe for a moment that he has not received any money. California is an ex-pensive place to live. Far from being a hero, Mosab is a foul opportunist. The Israelis may love him, but like the British attitude toward Benedict Arnold when he went there after betraying his countrymen, they will never trust him, or those like him.
