I was looking for a book that would give me insight to what is happening in the Middle East as well as being entertaining and this book delivered. I feel like I gained understanding, and was moved by reading this. I would highly recommend it for anyone.
I would have never thought that someone who grew up in such a hostile environment and such deep rooted Muslim religious beliefs could ever soften his heart towards God Almighty the creator of the universe. It just goes to show that God can use the most unlikely people to reach anyone including a person who grew up in a family like this guy did.
Courageous young man. Incredible journey that is hard to believe but clearly factual. I would love to meet him and his father.
Awesome book. Give better perspective on the true nature of the conflict. Both sides believe they are fighting for the better good. Fighting for their people. Fighting for their faith.
Excellent storytelling from the man who lived it. Sounds like he is sitting across the table, telling the story of his life. Truly a very brave man.
This book is a must read, particularly for anyone with an interest in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Very well written--gripping and soulful. What a unique and remarkable perspective. Thank you, Mosab, for sharing your story. There may yet come a day when you can help lead the region to peace.
A unique view into a dark confusing situation, a fast read,highly recommend if you're interested in middle east politics and an inside view of Terrorist organizations such as Hamas and the Palestine government which exploits and murders people on both sides of the conflict
I'm still processing this book as I write this review. I love that the author began with some history of the Middle East. I'm not a historian, so I can't comment on the accuracy, but I love that he offered insights received through his affiliations with the terrorist organization Hamas. This book has challenged my views and understanding of the conflicts around Palestine, and has helped me develop some compassion for those who blindly follow corrupt leaders for the sake of their God. It reminds me of the Nazi regime, and how many soldiers were regarded as caring fathers at home, but cruel and inhumane tormentors around the Jews. I hope this book inspires compassion for all people, and not just those with whom we affiliate ourselves.
