Mosab Hasan Youssef, son of Hamas founder Sheikh Hassan Youssef, arrived in Israel Wednesday evening from the US. Despite receiving an official invitation to visit the Knesset from Deputy Minister Eyov Kara (Likud), Youssef was detained at passport control for over three hours of questioning before eventually being allowed to proceed.

“They questioned me for a long time but they treated me well and with respect,” Youssef said about his detainment at the airport.
