From Seeds of Hate to the Bonds of Love

Submitter’s Note:
Craig is currently “working” on his latest manuscript – a “novel”, but a true story of transformation … from hatred to love in the cauldron of the Middle East titled ‘From Seeds of Hate to the Bond’s of Love’. In his research of the plot, he came across the story of Kamal Saleem on the internet and see that Saleem’s book (as well as his ministry at http://www.koomeministries.com/) has generated a lot of controversy with his claims. I’ll share this short extract and do some further investigation and research, as well as more writing on my story. Watch this space!
May 2009 *

Kamal Saleem:
“Kamal Saleem was born in Lebanon to a prominent Muslim clerical family, and out of sympathy to the Palestinian cause joined the PLO Fatah movement as a child. Later on he joined the PFLP. While being an active terrorist from the age of eleven years old, Kamal was involved in rioting and open gun battles with the IDF on the Lebanese-Israeli border. While in America, Kamal participated in Islamic missions work to convert young Americans to Islam, in order to then have them recruited for Jihad in America. In 1985 Kamal went through a spiritual journey and converted to Christianity and has already spread his message of reconciliation to many Christians. Now he believes he needs to speak to a wider audience and fulfill G-ds blessing on the Jewish people and Israel. When someone becomes truly born again, their whole philosophy on life changes. The truth of Gods Word and the fact that we truly become more Christ-like when we hear the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth Arise, Awake, Pray!” .

“The Blood of Lambs“
Kamal Saleem was born to a large Sunni Muslim family in the heart of the Middle East. Kamal was recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood at a very early age and completed his first mission to Israel at the age of seven. After several years, in his late teems, Kamal was also recruited by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (The PLO) and other radical Muslim groups. The many years of his terrorist training, resulted in Kamal mastering every form of offensive and defensive terrorist tactics. Born a Sunni Muslim in Lebanon, he came from a family that had 14 Imams. At the age of six, he was recruited into the Muslim Brotherhood, soon joining the PLO after being inspired by the words of his father, who cited the Koran: ‘What you do in life should never be small. God will weigh you when you die and you’ll go to hell or heaven,’ his father impressed on him. ‘I learned to do what was right. I also learned from his reciting the Koran that the Day of Judgment won’t come until the Moslems fight the Jews and Christians,’ Saleem said. Saleem recalled how, as a boy, he envisioned himself as an Islamic white knight astride a white horse, leading his Islamic army to kill the infidels. He asked the audience: ‘What do your children do at six-years-old?’ By age seven, he was training in weaponry, including explosives and anti-personnel mines, and combat. How to slit the throats of Jews was one lesson. Also at seven, he went on his first mission for the PLO, smuggling 100-pound packs of explosives and ammunition into the Golan Heights to shepherds who were working with the terrorists and who were as committed as he to attacking the Jews. ‘I was hailed a liberator!’, he bellowed to the audience. One day in a PLO training camp, Yasser Arafat had actually praised him and kissed him on the forehead. ‘I didn’t bathe for two weeks. You can imagine how badly I smelled after training all day,’ he said. Arafat told him how Jerusalem was to be their target. ‘The cleansing of the Jewish blood from Jerusalem, not a state, was our goal. I hated Jews. But I loved Allah. We learned that jihad was our path and what we desired as the highest goal was to be a martyr.’ The young Saleem also recruited other children like himself, including a neighbor next door. His parents expressed pride in their noble son. Saleem lost his best friend, Mohammed, on a mission for the PLO. Mohammed was only six and wounded by Israeli forces that intercepted their mission and group. Saleem recalled how, at 7 years-old, he had put his wounded friend on his back to evacuate him, only to learn Mohammed had been shot several more times, serving as a human shield as Saleem escaped with his life. Mohammed died that day. Kamal left his family and home in the Middle East as a young man to enter his mission field: the United States. He brought with him a tremendous passion to convert as many Christians and Jews as possible for the glory of Allah. He implemented his plan, and converted many people to Islam. * In 1985, Kamal’s world turned upside down when he was seriously injured in an automobile accident. A Christian man tended to Kamal at the accident scene, making sure he got the medical treatment he needed. Kamal’s orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist were also Christian men whom over a period of several months ministered the unconditional love of Jesus Christ to him as he recovered. The love and sacrificial giving of these men caused Kamal to cry out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob acknowledging his need for the Savior. Kamal has since become a man on a new mission, as an ambassador for the one true and living God, the great I Am, Jehovah God of the Bible. Kamal has tremendous insight into today’s world situation and a wealth of knowledge concerning the true culture and agenda of Islam. He is well versed in both the Koran and the Holy Bible. He believes radical Islam is the most clear and present danger to both Christians and Jews in the world, as we know it today. Kamal carries a message from God to awaken the church through the truth, education, and relationships. Kamal and his wife have been married for sixteen years. They have three children and five grandchildren. Eight years ago, his local church ordained Kamal as a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He currently teaches and speaks worldwide in churches, Jewish synagogues, Muslim communities, universities and high schools. He has also appeared worldwide on radio and television programs.”

“To claim men like Osama Bin Laden represent mainstream Islam is a ridiculous as alleging Christianity is represented by the likes of Radovan Karadzic. As congregations, communities and nations, we must join hands to fight the cancer of terrorism. Terrorist bombs don’t discriminate on the base of race or religion.”

About the submitter:
In his various writings, Craig strives to attempt to break down, in some small way, social, cultural, religious and economic barriers through trying to plant ‘tiny seeds of hope’ through sharing ideas and principles. He believes that whilst we should celebrate our differences, what we share is way more important than what divides us*. Craig’s new manuscript ‘A New Dawn’ on which he’s currently “working” is set in the Middle East: To attempt to find ‘common ground’/principles between different religions and cultures and to try to make some difference in building bridges in an ever more dangerous, tubulent and uncertain world. “A passionate story of inspiration: hope, faith, peace and especially love for the world.”
“Whilst we can (and should) cherish and celebrate our ‘unique’ differences, let not our different beliefs divide us, but let the Spirit of our shared humanity be what defines and unites us as common inhabitants of our planet.”.
