Publishers Description " Memoirs of a Terrorist "reveals the true inside story of the life and mindset of a radical muslim terrorist who finally came to renounce his murderous mission and embrace freedom. Some radical Muslims believe that non-Muslims who refuse to convert must die. "Memoirs of a Terrorist "is the true account of the life of such a terrorist who has since renounced his deadly participation in jihad, or "holy war." His memoir conveys an urgent message to Americans to wake up to the dangers of the terrorists who are still executing their harmful and destructive schemes. Kamal Saleem was born under a different name into a Sunni Muslim family in Lebanon. From a young age he was taught that the loftiest accomplishment he could achieve in life was to be martyred while killing infidels, namely Christians, Jews, and Americans. At age seven, he was recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood and entered an assault camp where members of al-Assifa, the armed branch of Fatah, trained for terror missions against Israel. After years of training, Saleem operatedin successful terror campaigns funded by the Muslim Brotherhood, the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and wealthy oil sheikhs. He infiltrated the United States with the sole purpose of converting others to radical Islam. However, a life-changing event caused him to reevaluate his worldview. Kamal came to know three kind Christian men, and through them he saw the love of God--eventually coming to know their God as well. As a result of their love andsacrificial giving, Kamal acknowledged his need for Christ as Savior. "Memoirs of a Terrorist "is his riveting story that attests to the power of love and freedom.

eye opening Jan 1, 2010
kamal saleem tells us how it is possible to be a terrorist from birth virtualy. he shares his experiences of terrorist training from age 7. how from birth he was taught anyone not of his religion deserved to dye a brutal death. he tells of several of the missions he was sent on. kamal also tells of his eye opening experience with christianity. this book is not for those who can't read it with an open mind and heart. he don't have to like mr saleem, just read and listen to his warning.
Amazing.. Dec 31, 2009
About the most engrossing and difficult to put down title I've read for a long time. Curious how one indifferent reviewer here describes the book as "one sided"- surely the essence of the book is that Kamal has been on BOTH sides.Perhaps more appalling and infuriating than some of Kamal's comrades in jihad, are the attempts of the college academia and liberal press especially NYT to discredit him. If you don't like the message -discredit the messenger. Kamal (no not his real name, for the usual reasons, anyone who speaks out against Islam and jihad is usually in a crosshairs by devotees of the religion of love and peace) and the Wafa Sultans and Hirsi Alis etc are the real jewels of the debate, because unlike the Mark Steyns and Daniel Pipes, they are difficult for the college edgamacated latte left , or the Islamic fifth column itself, to conveniently dismiss as 'racists"....if they can't wake apathetic naive generous western society up from it's suicidal slumber, who can?
Questionable due to sloppy small errors in details. Dec 21, 2009
I am currently reading this book, but there are so many errors in small details that the BS meter is blinking red. I'd very much like this to be a true account, but, in my experience, too many small errors indicate falsehood. It would be a tragedy if this were a true story, rendered less credible due to sloppy fact checking and editing.
The blood of the lambs Dec 8, 2009
The Blood of the Lambs is a must read for every one living in the U.S. no matter what their political or religious beliefs might be...
A MUST READ for every American who values their freedom! Nov 12, 2009
I have read a LOT of books, but this one really stands out as one of the best I've read in a long time. The author keeps the reader on the edge of his seat the whole way through! I now feel much more knowledgeable about the Arab/Israeli conflict and the religion of Islam. Because Kamal had once been a terrorist, it was especially fascinating to read about his account of learning of the events of September 11, 2001. It was incredibly dangerous and brave for this man to have come forward to make this information available to the American public. Read this book and I promise that you won't be disappointed!
