You know you're morally confused, lost and effed in the head when your first instinct it not to approve this fellows application for asylum but to open up the possibility of sending him back to the barbaric savages that he helped you to fight. The mere fact that this is even being considered shows how bone-stupid the west has become, just think of the message that anyone out there entertaining any notion of helping the west is going to take from this.
WSJ - Mosab Hassan Yousef is a best-selling author who wrote "Son of Hamas" about his life as a Palestinian who became an informant for Israeli intelligence. He's probably near the top of every Islamist terror hit list, yet, incredibly enough, the U.S. may soon deport him as a terror threat. In 2007, Mr. Yousef came to the United States, where he converted to Christianity from Islam and applied for political asylum. The request was denied in February 2009, Mr. Yousef says, on grounds that he was potentially "a danger to the security of the United States" and had "engaged in terrorist activity." His case has automatically proceeded to the deportation stage, and on June 30 at 8 a.m. he will appear before Judge Rico Bartolomei in Homeland Security Immigration Court in San Diego.
Homeland Security is well aware of the author's history, and in fact is using it against him. According to Mr. Yousef, a letter from Homeland Security attorney Kerri Calcador cites passages in "Son of Hamas" as evidence of his connection to terrorist leaders and suggests that the work he did for Hamas while spying for Israel provided aid to terrorists. "At a bare minimum, evidence of the respondent's transport of Hamas members to safe houses . . . indicates that the respondent provided material support to a [Tier I] terrorist organization," the U.S. lawyer wrote.

We all know there are muslims in the Arab world who are willing to help us fight the jihadists and we need them in this fight. They put their asses on the line for various reasons but if they get a whiff that we'll shaft them when things turn to shit, we'll rightly be on our own in this fight. To them and anyone out there who sees jihadist Islam exactly for what it is, they won't see this as a betrayal by America, they will rightly see it as a betrayal by the western world.
Stupidity and treachery like this dear reader, goes a long way to explain why the western world is in such dire straits. I know most of you wouldn't need to be told the right thing to do, but you and I both know that there are enough in the west who have to be shamed, cajoled and even bullied into doing the right thing.
Only when most of us [government included] instinctively choose the right option will western culture be restored to its former glory. No culture can thrive without this and to be blunt, no culture deserves to thrive if it cannot even get even these basic foundations right.
