John Calvin (a new name), the grandson of the founder of Hamas, has been granted asylum in the U.S. (he had been hiding out in Canada) after what he describes as years of “torture and death threats.”
He says of his ordeal:
I’ve literally been to hell and back, so it’s going to take a while for me to rebuild my life.
Now 25, Calvin says he fled his homeland following beatings and after finding out his father planned an honor killing due to John's homosexuality and conversion to Christianity.
How Canada ever denied his petition for asylum (he was a de facto member of Hamas, though clearly not of his own volition) is beyond me, but it's good news he is going to find a permanent home in the U.S.
