"The Blood of Lambs" byy 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 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.

This is truly the best book I have ever read. Kamal's story gripped me from the very beginning and I simply could not stop reading the book once I started. I had alot of my own personal questions regarding Islam and Muslims before I started reading it and Kamal answered alot of these questions that actually brought me a peace of mind, but at the same time validated my fears regarding our war on terrorism. I believe considering the times we live in, every person should read this book if for no other reason but to have a better understanding. I wish I could thank him personally for having the courage to write about it.

I literally was not able to put this book down until I had finished it. It is fascinating and enlightening. I like the way the author includes passages from the Qu'ran. For an American, with absolutely no understanding of Muslim culture, this book is a wake-up call!

As a security professional, the "inside" story concept revealed nothing new. To the "non-security" minded, it is enlightening to discover the conviction these religous groups have to infiltrate and spread their message.

A personal story of a devout muslem and his journey from being a terrorist devoted to killing in the name of Allah to a man of peace. A true story unadorned by rabid pro-western bias. The book provides a keen insight and perspective in to the inner thinking/workings of some muslem families and some muslem organizations. Well worth the read, but it will likely cause the casual student of international affairs to think and perhaps reevaluate his/her opinions.

I heard Mr. Saleem in a radio interview after missing him speak at my church. This book is so very well written and the message is clear. Buy it! Read it! Pass it on!!!

This man's life story is about sin and redemption. It shows how love is needed to complete your heart - love by the people here on Earth but that the love of God is needed most of all. It is inspiring that the people who think like this can be changed by understanding what Jesus truly did and continues to do. It was hard to read in some places for the violence but is necessary in the book to make us understand what jihad is about. I would not say this is a Christian read for those interested in the life of a terrorist, that is just what I took from it.

Kamal's tale of growing up in the middle east and how he became involved with terrorist factions is hard to put down. The formula he describes for assimilation into the US culture is truly a must read. People need to be aware of what is going on around them and the frightening possibilities that are outlined in this book.

He will forgive anyone. This x terrorist has a new life and is risking life and reputation in a desperate attempt to save the world from radical Islam. As a Christian I find this to be an amazing book, denouncing terrorism. Samuel Govaerts.

For all Americans wanting to know the truth regarding HAMAS and what this terrorist group is all about, you MUST read this book. The chapters are short and it reads quickly because you simply cannot put it down!!! The Palestinians have been highjacked by these evil terrorists - they MUST be stopped!

After hearing a former Muslim pastor speak at my church, I became interested in trying to find out more on how some extremist Muslims come to hate Amercians/Christians and how one might make the journey from this viewpoint to becoming a Christian themselves. So when my Christian book club was looking for a biography to read, I found this memoir online. The memoir was easy to read switching back and forth between memories and past experiences of the author as he became more and more involved with Muslim terrorism and between current times when he has converted to Christianity and is living in America speaking about his experiences and how if affects America. I did get insight that I did not have before on the kind of teachings and viewpoints that are indoctrinated in the Muslim culture from an early age. And how easy it is to get involved in terrorism from an early age. The author was only 7 when he was participating in his first mission. I could have done without as much detail on the earlier missions and attacks as I was more interested in the personal aspect of the author's feelings/viewpoints and how they were changing. I would have liked to see more on that line pertaning to the religious aspect and to his relationship with his wife who did not even know about his past until well into their marriage. But it was very interesting. Of course, the part referencing 9/11 was espceially poignant. And the description of how he is in constant danger even now from other extremmist Muslims when speaking on terrorism shows that this issue has not gone away. America should not be paranoid but we cannot afford to let our guard down too much either. Let's not have history repeat itself witn another 9/11. Good read!

I think every American should read this book & I would be happy to lend it to anyone with a Nook. It explains so much about why radical Muslims hate anyone that is not a Muslim and why there is nothing we can do to change the way they think except pray that they will find the light of Christianity before they take over our world.

This book sheds light on some very bad things going on in the US. We need to be aware and not listen to the down play of the Media and our leaders. It is real, and this man had a horrible child hood and brain washing. Praise the Lord he is not out there still, plotting and killing.
