“Trained from childhood to fight in jihad for the cause of Allah, former terrorist Kamal Saleem says he learned early to hate Christians and Jews. The response he got from Christians, however, changed his life,” writes Michael Carl of WND. “The former soldier for Allah says in his biography that he was recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood for jihad and completed his first terrorist assignment when he was 7 years old.”

Saleem relates his conversion to Christianity in the book, "The Blood of Lambs: A Former Terrorist's Memoir of Death and Redemption"

He made his way to America for the determined purpose of putting America under Muslim law, but a 1985 traffic accident created a detour.

"My car was very small and it has a T-top, so when the 18-wheeler broad-sided me, I ejected from car and landed on my head in a mud hole upside down," Saleem related. "I cried out for Allah, but Allah didn't come to save me. I cried, 'Allah where are you?'" Saleem added.

A Christian doctor came to his rescue: "His first words were, 'Son we're going to take care of you and everything's going to be all right.' He was assuring me that everything's going to be taken care of and we're' going to be with you," Saleem said.

At the hospital, the orthopedic surgeons read my chart and said, ‘Son, we're going to take care of you, and everything's going to be all right'" Saleem continued. "It was the same language, the same thing."
Saleem notes the common ground of his two benefactors was they smiled and “did not demonstrate self, they demonstrated the character of the Most High."

The doctors showed him the unconditional love of God, something that is foreign to Islam.

The doctor took him into his home to recover and there he saw what a Christian marriage was like. "The husband and wife were together; they were partners. It was so powerful, two are better than one. And now they were racing as to who was going to serve whom. They were serving their children; they were serving their community and this guy was an orthopedic surgeon, one of the best, and he was cleaning bathrooms!" Saleem said. "In our world we don't do things like that. That was women's work!" Saleem added.

They loved me unconditionally and they put a basket that said, 'For Kamal Saleem,'" Saleem remembered. “The basket was full of dollars and with checks until they forgave my debt in full. They purchased a new car to replace the old car. I was seeing something," Saleem explained.

“I'm seeing in their home (the host family) something completely different. And now, I'm part of their household," Saleem added. "So the Word of God is walking before me and I came to know the ugly truth about Islam and the beautiful truth which is Christianity," Saleem said.

"I saw the two gods in front of me. One God came to my rescue. The god I had served ran away from me," Saleem added.
