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.

This book is beautifully written yet somewhat frightening in its honesty. I heard Kamal Saleem speak at a public venue, bought the book, shook his hand, and had a 10 minute conversation with him. He's the real deal.

I find it hilarious that people accuse him of being a fraud. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Brigitte Gabriel, and others are accused of being frauds too. What is the common thread? If you criticize Islam you are smeared as a fraud; if run around saying that Islam is a religion of peace people This book is beautifully written yet somewhat frightening in its honesty.

If you criticize Islam you are smeared as a fraud; if run around saying that Islam is a religion of peace people believe you uncritically.

This is the world we live in: the dominant cultural narrative posits that Islam cannot be criticized. No other religion gets this special status. This special treatment is demeaning to those of us who value the free flow of ideas. ...more

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.

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.

Every Freedom Loving American should read this book soon to understand what is really happening with the undermining of both our nation and our way of life. Watch the movie "They Live" and replace the alien invaders with Muslim Terrorists that are working from within the United States to undermine all that we have accomplished and replace it with Umma and Sharia Law.

Everyone who loves America needs to read this book and wake up. ...more

I originally heard about this book from some friends on Facebook, and wanted to read it myself. I'm glad I did. It was a very eye-opening and heartbreaking 1st person account of the tactics used by radical Islamic terrorists to recruit and train children to carry out their agendas. Mr. Saleem shows incredible fortitude in making this information known. It's also a story of redemption, love, and hope.

I read this book because I heard the author talk at our church recently. It was a good read and speaks of the dangers in our world. Trouble is, now what should I do?

This is one of those books that seems so unbelievable that you almost want to spend a month researching its veracity. However, it's very well-written and utterly compelling. It's also a chilling insight into what modern terrorists think and act like. Highly recommended.

Wow, I don't know where to start this was such an amazing story and in our current dialogue of the middle east, this is timely. First of all, this is a guy who was on the front lines, so it puts you in the mindset of a terrorist. This isn't some observant guy who knew a few other guys, no he lived it and if it doesn't scare every American knowing the operational mindset of these terrorists, then it will only be a matter of time for them to be successful right here in the United States.

This was an interesting and good read. Well told story and easy to follow and stay engaged.

Pretty interesting inside take on the mentality of the Middle Eastern Islamic terrorist mentality. How they are trained, what their motivations are, and their general view of the west. Pretty insightful.

I was not 100% sold around all the terrorist acts being completely factual. Just felt stretched.

Again, liked the read and felt it was very interesting.

This is the life story of a man you would never want to meet. It was difficult to read some of the passages of horror and terrorism that he was part of or instrumental in executing. Yet it is also the story of a man who saw for himself the difference in a life given to the God of love. Once a man whose only desire was to fight for Allah, he now speaks out to warn of the ruthlessness of Islamic jihadists. A terrible, honest story.

This book is an eye-opener dealing with the radical Muslim and their hate for the U. S. whom they call Big Satan and for Israel whom they refer to as little satan. The Author was recruited as a 7 year old and taught how to be a terrorist. As a young man, he came to America to convert the weak, the poor and the needy into radical Islam. After a car accident, he started questioning his belief after the kindness of 3 doctors who helped him through his recovery period.

This is an eye opening account of radical Islam in the world today. Although I believe that the majority of Muslims are peaceful, I do know that radical Islam is a threat that we should all be made aware.

Saleem is an excellent storyteller and kept my interest piqued throughout most of this book. I know there are some people who would claim this book to be propaganda, but I think that helps prove Saleem's account to be true.

Hmmm - I thought this book would be better. I guess I am being a bit of a girl? Long soldier descriptions of battles of training bores me. Also, any of his comrades appear to be completely one dimensional characters. We are all complex beings, even Muslim brothers who want to kill Christians.

I also find it had to believe that god spoke to him. Sorry, but my friend goes on about that and I dont believe her either. Swapping one religeon for another?

This book paints a real horrific picture of what it is to be a jihadist and the terrible savagery of the muslim faith.

Interesting to see how he was raised and the road that led him to be a terrorist, but I'm skeptical of some of the things presented in the book and the message of fear. It was also a little too graphic for my taste.

Emotionally, I wanted to close the book and pretend that things like this can't possibly be happening, but rationally, I knew that it was important to read on even though it disrupted my comfortable American world.

Kamal rationalizes that it is the very fundamentals of America--welcoming immigrants, freedom of speech and religion, tolerance--that make her so vulnerable to a spread of radical Islam.

Kamal is now an American citizen and converted to Christianity. However, he doesn't spend an extraordinary amount of time in the book talking about his conversion experience.

Reading this book gave me a better understanding of the mentality of jihad. It also made me wonder if, by viewing the world through our American rose-colored glasses, we fully understand the extent of radical Islam and what it means for "infidels" such as ourselves?

As a child, he questions how can one man handle so many woman when it is difficult to handle one wife. He also is quite concerned about what happens to his mother and will she get 72 virgin men. His father is angly at him for saying such things about his mother and tells him that Allah will give him strengh to handle all the woman and that he will have super human strength. He comes back a day later and tells Kamal that his mother will be in charge of the virgins which is not correct, but even his father can see the injustice for woman. At age 7, he is learning how to be a terrorist: kidnapping, explosives, and weapons. A life changing event occurs after he arrives in America. He has a car accident and a Christian family takes him in. It changes his whole view of Americans that he has learned since he was a child. Now, he has changed his name and travels around America warning us that their are sleeper terrorist everywhere waiting for the signal to begin their attack within America. America's strength is also our weakness. We are so accepting of others, but I wouldn't want to change it out of fear. ...more

"The Blood of Lambs" by Kamal Saleem is an amazing, must read book from start to finish. It is a memoir about a former terrorist's life. Since it is a memoir, everything contained in the book must be taken with a grain of salt because the author will be inherantly somewhat biased. However, that being said, I believe the author does try to provide the reader with an honest view of what being a terrorist was like. The purpose of this book is to inform the reader and open up their eyes that the "The Blood of Lambs" by Kamal Saleem is an amazing, must read book from start to finish.

However, that being said, I believe the author does try to provide the reader with an honest view of what being a terrorist was like. The purpose of this book is to inform the reader and open up their eyes that the danger to America is not gone but in fact real and present.

The chapters in this book are short, exactly like "The DaVinci Code", which makes the book an even faster read. I could not put this book down once I began it. It grabs the reader immediately and they are drawn into this dangerous world. Since the purpose of this book was not just to tell the story of one former terrorist's life but to inform and warn the readers, it succeeded. The reader cannot finish this book without feeling a little chill in their spine about the future. This book definitely provides a wakeup call for all of those who have become complacent since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in America.

This is an amazing memoir and I highly recommend it to everyone. It is one of those books you can't put down once you begin. Also this book has a good point it's trying to make which makes this book even more worth the read. ...more

WOW! That's the word that kept coming into my mind as I read "The Blood of Lambs--A Former Terrorist's Memoir of Death and Redemption" by Kamal Saleem with Lynn Vincent. It is the most interesting memoir I have ever read! I was fascinated by what the Muslims believe and have a better understanding of how Muslim terrorists think.

Kamal was abused and bullied as a kid, and found acceptance and protection when recruited as a boy soldier. All his life he was raised to hate and at age 7, attended a terrorist training camp where they trained with live ammunition. This man had a vast number of experiences that were completely new to me, including many near death experiences. His childhood is heartbreaking and even after he came to America and was converted to Christianity, his bravery continues as he publicly shares his story and warns the U.S. to wake up to what the Jihad is up to. His life is always in danger!

I learned so much from reading this book! I am not into politics at all so thought this book might be boring and read like a history text book, but I was so wrong! It is a very interesting and captivating read because wanting to know what happened to bring about this terrorist's conversion to Christianity kept me turning the pages. This is not the kind of book I normally would read, but it was recommended to me by a friend in an email that went into detail about it which piqued my interest. Now I am recommending it to you!
(Karen's review)

The Blood of Lambs by Kamal Saleem tells the true story of his life and his change from being a follower of Allah to being a follower of Jesus Christ. At the age of 7 he was trained to become an Islamic terrorist! It is a fascinating read. I didn't know how they train these people, but I do now and it is very scary! The story of how he became to speak out against terrorism is mind-blowing. You have to read it to believe it!

This sure was action packed. Is it true? That seems to be the big question. Certain aspects sure are. Not so sure about the terrorists parts - probably though.
Its the Islamic issues that scare me the most. Its easy to test this, all you have to do is mention the Jews...and you'll see many so-called moderate Muslim's go off on tyrannical rampages of hate. Weird eh? Are the Jews really that big a deal. All this fighting over a pathetically small piece of land? If the Muslims want to impress me: This sure was action packed. Is it true?

Weird eh? Are the Jews really that big a deal. All this fighting over a pathetically small piece of land? If the Muslims want to impress me: all they have to do is give the Israelites that very small bit of land in the middle East and get on with showing the entire world how peaceful and full of love and prosperity Islamic societies are. Sorry people - but all we ever seem to see is fighting and complaining. Allah doesn't seem to be looking after you at all is he. You Muslims have billions of dollars in oil money and yet many of you are in poverty and misery. Why isn't allah spreading the wealth? It appears Muslims are just as greedy and commercialized as the rest of the world. You have NO right to hate or disapprove of the United States way of living. This book proves that nicely. If the Jews and Americans are so rich and successful: Ask allah what the problem is. Apparently he isn't running things very well.

And that is what this book shows. Endlessly miserable Muslims actually thinking they will be happy when they finally get their world domination. But like this book says: once your enemies are gone - you'll just turn on each other. Nasty eh?

Is there such a thing as moderate Muslims? I doubt it. How many moderate Muslims cheered when the world trade centers blew up? It might be easier to ask how many didn't?
Its very simple: all the moderate Muslims have to do to prove this author wrong is stand up and put an end to radical Muslims everywhere. If only 1% of Muslims are radicals then it should be no problem. But we all know that ain't going to happen anytime soon. Especially since the problem seems to be coming right from their mosques and Imams. So all you Muslims: next time you witness anyone saying anything against the Jews, or the U.S., or Christians in your Mosque, please stand up and remind them Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance. Yeah right! As if that will ever happen.

anyway, i'm surprised this author didn't mention the endgame of Islam as compared to other religions. Islam demands that the World must come under the submission of allah and Islam. Nasty eh? Yes it is.
Other religions don't demand world dominance. Christianity even admits that the Christians will basically lose and be persecuted by the entire world. Not much to fear there. Domination is not going to happen.

I hope this author writes another book someday. The rest of the story perhaps. ...more

At the age of seven, he was recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood and soon after joined Fatah, the largest faction of the PLO. His book The Blood of Lambs: A Former Terrorist’s Memoir of Death and Redemption alternates between the story of his youth as a member of Fatah and his present day actions. [return][return]At seven, he began smuggling weapons into Israel and soon moved on to combat missions. He participated in extortions, kidnappings, bombings, murders, and the usual terrorist activities as he moved up in the Fatah ranks. At the age of 16, he went to Libya for advanced terror training in one of Muammar Gaddafi’s training camps. He returned home just prior to the start of the Lebanese civil war and spent several years fighting along the Beirut’s Green Line. He was eventually sent to Saudi Arabia to raise money for the PLO, which he was apparently very successful at, collecting large donations from wealthy oil Sheikhs. He returned to Lebanon and was involved in a mission to steal SA-7 SAMs from Syria; once they were stolen, he helped transport them into Afghanistan for use against the Soviets. While in Afghanistan Mr. Saleem shot down a Soviet bomber with one of the SA-7s. In 1981, he came to the United States in an effort to radicalize American Muslims, which he continued to do until 1985. In 1985, he was involved in a serious auto accident and broke two vertebrae in his neck. After spending a week in the hospital, his doctor asked him if he would like to continue his recovery at the doctor’s home. Mr. Saleem agreed and moved in with the doctor’s family while he continued to heal. By 1990, he had converted to Christianity and married an American woman. He never told her or anyone about his terrorist past. In 2004, he decided he needed to speak out about the dangers of radical Islam and its ties to terrorism. [return][return]Intermixed with the above story are incidents that occurred during his speaking tour in 2007-2008. Most of the incidents involve threats of some sort made against him or his family.[return][return]In the first chapter, Mr. Saleem describes an incident that occurred in Chino, California in 2007. I have been in law enforcement for almost 20 years, so I know a little about security and I have a hard time believing the event he described actually happened or at least happened as he described. This caused me to question the truthfulness of everything that came after. All of the events Mr. Saleem describes could have happened and they all could have happened to him but his first chapter makes me wonder. With this in mind, I question how Mr. Saleem could have risen so high in Fatah at such a young age and how he managed to be involved in so many different actions in such a short time. [return][return]While I questioned Mr. Saleem’s trustworthiness, I thought the story was well told and it kept me interested. Right up to the point where he moved in with the doctor’s family. While, I found it unlikely that such an event would occur, what really got me was the doctor’s explanation for the offer, “We just want to show you the love of God”. I read that and said; “You have got to be kidding” however it got worse. The scene describing the doctor’s children meeting Mr. Saleem sounded like a scene with Rod and Todd Flanders from The Simpsons. Moreover, to finish it off, god spoke to him.[return][return]Mr. Saleem mentions in his book that critics have accused him of fabricating his story, alleging he was never a terrorist, nor a Muslim. The supposed purpose of this is to discredit his warnings about radical Islam. I think his warnings are valid, but I don’t know if his story is.[return][return]This book was received from Library Thing Early Reviewer. ...more

Wake up America!

A great story of warning to all. We are at war but most Americans don’t realize it. I hope they do before it is to late.
