The latest film to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival throws the spotlight on the son of a founder of Hamas – who spent 10 years at the heart of the Palestinian Islamist movement as an Israeli "mole".He contacted Mossab and arranged to meet him in New York. He also met Gonen Ben Yitzhak, the Palestinian mole's Shin Bet handler, and decided to focus his movie on the astonishing relationship between the two men.Shin Bet arrested Mossab in 1996 for arms possession when he was 17 years old and a devout follower of his father's beliefs. Ben Yitzhak proposed that he became a spy for Israel. Mossab accepted, planning to become a double agent, to work against the Israelis.Ben Yitzhak also paid a heavy price for working with Mossab. He had to leave Shin Bet for protecting the Israeli "mole" – sometimes in violation of the intelligence service's rules.
