Born in Bethlehem, Israel, Walid Shoebat is an American citizen and lives in the U.S.A. with his wife and children, under this assumed name.
As a young man, Walid became a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and participated in acts of terror and violence against Israel, and was imprisoned in Jerusalem’s central prison for enticement of violence.
After entering the U.S, he worked as a counselor for the Arab Student Organization in Chicago while continuing his anti-Israel activities. He was active in Chicago with the Muslim Brotherhood during 1980-1981.
In 1993, Walid studied the Bible in a challenge to convert his wife to Islam. After intense study, Walid realized that everything he had been taught about hating Jews was a lie. Walid converted to Christianity, was convinced he needed to fight evil, and became an advocate for his former enemy.
Walid has written several books including For God or for Tyranny, God’s War on Terror, Why We Want to Kill You, and Why I Left Jihad.
Walid began by discussing Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Huma is a Muslim who is in a marriage that normally would be condemned in Muslim culture as she’s married to disgraced Senator Anthony Weiner who is Jewish. This makes sense only when you hear Walid describe Huma’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim Sisterhood.
Join Jim as he allows Walid to bring forth interesting details regarding lax U.S. security clearance policies that have led to the infiltration of government agencies. This infiltration, in turn, has led to the deaths of agents and U.S. service members.
The book, For God or for Tyranny is available at Walid’s website:
