In his riveting memoir, Kamal Saleem reveals the story of his life as radical Islamic terrorist and how he finally came to renounce his murderous mission, embrace freedom, and warn America of the continuing dangers of terrorism.
Born into a large Sunni Muslim family in Lebanon, Kamal was taught that the highest goal he could achieve in life was to be martyred while killing infidels, particularly 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 and many successful missions, Kamal became a leader among jihadists. A native Arab speaker and known for his fearless commitment, he learned to speak English, French, and Hebrew, enabling him to operate in nearly any country.
But in 1985, a life-changing event caused him to question the worldview he had spent his entire life pursuing—a worldview he was not only willing, but hoping to die for. As a result, he came to know three kind Christian men, and through them he saw the love of God—eventually coming to know their God as well. In The Blood of Lambs, Kamal shares the shocking story of his life as a terrorist, how he eventually severed ties with terrorism, and how he embraced Christ as Savior and discovered the beauty of freedom and the power of love.
