Masab Yousef, an inspirational story. This young man has courage.

The verse that started him on his new journey
(Matthew 5:44) "44 But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,"


YouTube - Son of Hamas Leader: Hamas Atrocities Led Me to Convert


YouTube - Masab Yousef "Son of Hamas terrorists leader"

So why did he leave the "religion of peace" again?

You do know Christians in the Mid east have existed a long long time don't you?

Palestinian Christians - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Your point? Why don't you go there and see how they live? not to mention does wikipedia have a statistic on Christians who live in the West Bank who were born Muslim in the family of a Hamas leader that OPENLY criticizes Hamas, Mohammed, Allah and Islam? I would love to hear that statistic?

What really stuck out in my mind about this person was at the end of his interview he was asked how he felt about having a death wish upon his life...and his answer blew me away...he said...(paraphrasing)..."...I do this because there will be some who will listen and hear this message...even if there are only some, that is worth it...maybe thay can kill this body...but can they kill my spirit? "No", he said..."they can not..I am not afraid"...Wow! What a precious young man...God is using him so powerfully!!! Only to be able to have that kind of faith...and boldness...and fearlessness!!! WOW!!...Love

I dunno, why don't you ask them; I am not one to pull stats out of thin air, I look at both sides and look at facts but I will say this...

...I am guessing you do not get or watch Aljazeera English, well Muslims are rallied to the cause and they too have no fear of dying for Allah.

War is stupid.

As for my point, before the Jews started annexing land from the Palestinians, there were far more Christians back then.

Can't you just appreciate this beautiful, inspiring testimony about a young muslim boy who gave up everything for his Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ.

...me to Fundy.....but you know what...little by litle I can see where God is ever-so-gently turning it around...bringing together the ones who love him, He's pouring out His beautiful Spirit upon all people...it's happening...He's revealing the wicked...the darker the darkness, the brighter the light!...bringing them out of their holes...Praise be to God...Amen!...Love.
