Amasha is a Druze from the village Buq'ata, Golan Heights. He holds no official citizenship but rather an Israeli Travel Document. With special permission from FIFA, Amasha played for Israel despite having received interest from the Syrian Football Association. When Amasha goes to a match abroad he is required to get a visa for any country since he doesn't hold a real passport.
On 7 June 20, 2011 Amasha signed a four-year contract with Israeli defending champion Maccabi Haifa. Amasha made his debut on 2011–12 UEFA Champions League Second qualifying round, 13 July 2011, against Borac Banja Luka and scored three goals.
After catching the eye of Israel national team manager, Luis Fernández, Amasha was thought to be on his way to making a full national team appearance. Due to changes in FIFA statutes, Amasha can not represent the full national team without acquiring an Israeli passport. On November 30, 2011 FIFA gave Amasha special permission to play for the Israeli national team without a passport.
