Mosab Yousef's Israeli Shin-Bet Handler in US for Court Hearing

Mr. Yousef’s Shin-Bet handler has been known to Americans as only “G,” until now. Captain Ghonim appeared in Washington, D.C. Wednesday night, June 24th, at an event honoring Mosab, and will attend court on Wednesday morning.

Mosab Hassan Yousef (Joseph in America)
From NewsMax:
An Israeli intelligence officer who spent more than 10 years as the secret handler of a top agent inside the Hamas terrorist organization has come out of the shadows for the first time, revealing his identity at a Washington, D.C., event on Wednesday where his former agent was honored… 
Yousef introduced Ghonim Wednesday night as “a great brother, a true friend, a family member. He was a man of his word.” 
It wasn’t for ego or applause. Indeed, the man identified as “Captain Ghonim” could face jail time back in Israel for having broken his cover. 
So why did he do it? 
To speak to the character of Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a top Hamas leader, whom the pro-Israel Endowment for Middle East Truth honored in the Senate Caucus Room.
“Mosab is not a terrorist,” Ghonim told the audience. “I have known him for more than 10 years.” 
Ghonim said he plans to go to the court in San Diego where an immigration judge has threatened to deport Yousef back to the Palestinian territories on grounds that he was a member of a terrorist organization and had taken part in terrorist operations. 
“Mosab prevented killing. He prevented violence,” Ghonim said. “Mosab, I will be with you in this trial and I will tell the truth.”
This is such excellent news. This “event” was in Washington, D.C. Wouldn’t it be interesting to know who is “honoring” this brave young man? Read the entire story at NewsMax.

Mosab's court date is next Wednesday, June 30th at 8 a.m. Keep the prayers winging. This article is cross-posted from the Save Mosab Yousef website where you can find indepth background on this story.
