American judge agrees to grant asylum to ex-Israeli spy
By ASSOCIATED PRESS

US asylum will be granted to the son of a Hamas founder who became a Christian and an Israeli spy after he passes a routine background check, an immigration judge ruled Wednesday.

Mosab Hassan Yousef received the news during a 15-minute deportation hearing after a US Department of Homeland Security attorney said the government was dropping its objections.

The agency denied Yousef's asylum request in February 2009, arguing that he had been involved in terrorism and was a threat to the United States.

Attorney Kerri Calcador gave no explanation for the government's change of heart.
