FORMER MUSLIM TERRORIST PRAYS OVER TROOPS
Convert From Islam to Christianity to be Keynote Speaker at Prayer Service in Virginia Beach
On March 3rd, former Muslim terrorist Walid Shoebat, a convert to Christianity, will be the keynote speaker at the Calvary Assembly of God Church, offering his prayers and support for troops being deployed overseas some time in March.
Since being converted in 1993 after his Christian wife challenged him to read the Bible, Shoebat has been on a mission to spread to spread the Christian message via speaking engagements, authoring books, and various media interviews.
Now Walid is lending his voice to prayer for America’s troops in a war it has been increasingly difficult for them to fight. Shoebat knows the enemy they are fighting because he used to belong to it. Today, he is an unadulterated Christian and unwilling to compromise that faith.

ABOUT WALID SHOEBAT…
Born in Bethlehem, Walid’s grandfather was the Muslim Mukhtar (chieftain) of Beit Sahour-Bethlehem (The Shepherd’s Fields) and a friend of Haj-Ameen Al-Husseni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and notorious friend of Adolf Hitler.
As a young man, he became a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and participated in acts of terror and violence against Israel, and was later imprisoned in the Russian Compound, Jerusalem’s central prison for incitement and violence against Israel.
After his release, he continued his life of violence and rioting in Bethlehem and the Temple Mount. After entering the U.S, he worked as a counselor for the Arab Student Organization at Loop College in Chicago and continued his anti-Israel activities.
In 1993, Walid studied the Bible to challenge to convert his wife to Islam. Six months later, after intense study, he realized that everything he had been taught about Jews was a lie. Convinced he was on the side of evil, he became an advocate for his former enemy.
Driven by a deep passion to heal his own soul, and to bring the truth about the Jews, Israel and the threat of fundamentalist Islam to the world, Walid shed his former life and his work as a software engineer and set out to tirelessly bring the cause against the evil of Islamic Fundamentalist to tens of millions of people throughout the world: churches, synagogues, civic groups, government leaders and media.
Walid is the author of several bestselling books including “Why I Left Jihad,” “Why We Want To Kill You” and “God’s War on Terror.” Walid is an American citizen and lives in the USA with his wife and children, under this assumed name. Walid has spoken all over America and the world including Chile, Mexico, Canada, UK, and South Africa. He has appeared on national television also all over the world including CNN, CNN International, FOX News, ITN, RTE, NBC, CBS, The 700, ABC and ABC Australia. He has also been featured on BBC radio 4, 5 and the largest radio audience on the BBC World Service reaching 180 million people.
Walid has the unique insight so as people can now fully understand the issue of terrorism from the perspective of someone who was once a terrorist. Walid Shoebat has given lectures at Harvard Law School and Columbia University, and has also spoken at Oxford University UK, National Constitution Center, Capitol Hill, UCLA, USC, University of Georgia, Washington University, Penn State, and San Diego State University.
