Former Jihadi Talks About New Mission to Spread Truth at Alex McFarland’s Apologetics Conference

Kamal Saleem Joins Truth for a New Generation Lineup with Nation’s Top Authors, Speakers and Influencers at March 23-24 North Carolina Event

GREENSBORO, N.C.—At the tender age of 7, most American children are focusing on fun and growing up. But at that young age, Kamal Saleem carried out his first mission after being recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood.

His road to freedom—and Christianity—was a long one, but today’s he’s committed to communicating the truth about Islam. 

Saleem will be a featured speaker at the 2018 Truth for a New Generation (TNG) conference organized by religion and culture expert and author Dr. Alex McFarland. The event is set for March 23-24, 2018, at Life Community Church, 4900 W. Wendover Ave., Jamestown (the greater Greensboro area) in North Carolina.

“Kamal Saleem’s message of truth and redemption is absolutely amazing,” said McFarland, who is also Director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at the Christian Worldview Center of North Greenville University in Greenville, South Carolina. “His story relays to perhaps uninformed Christians the forces working hard to dismantle our faith. We welcome him to the Truth for a New Generation conference and know that his insight and passion will be extremely moving for attendees.”

Born to a large Sunni Muslim family in the Middle East, Saleem was also recruited by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and other radical Muslim groups. After many years of radical Islamist training, he eventually mastered every form of divisive extremist tactics. As a young man, he left his family to enter his “mission field”—the United States—with the intent to convert as many Christians and Jews as possible for the glory of Allah. He worked effectively in what is now known as “stealth” cultural jihad.

In 1985, Saleem was seriously injured in an automobile accident; Christian men aided him at the scene and nurtured him back to health. These men demonstrated the unconditional, redemptive love of Christ, and since then, Saleem has become a man on a new mission as an ambassador for Christ.

Saleem is uniquely equipped with tremendous insight into today’s most pressing issues, armed with a wealth of knowledge about the true culture and agenda of radical Islam. He is well-versed in the Bible, Quran, Hadith and Sira (Shariah Law). He believes radical Islam is the most broadly disguised present danger to Christians, Jews and all non-Muslim people of the world, and carries the message to awaken the Church through truth, education, prayer and relationship.

The former jihadi is now president of Koome Ministries—from the Aramaic word from the Old Testament meaning “arise.” The ministry seeks to reach a lost and oppressed people with the liberty of Jesus Christ with a threefold goal: to wake up, educate and train the Christian and Jewish communities on the impending dangers of radical Islam; to reach Muslims with the redemptive message of Christ; and to teach the church “relationship evangelism” to reach Muslims with the truth. In 2009, Saleem wrote his memoir, “The Blood of Lambs.”

Also joining McFarland at the Truth for a New Generation will be Fox News hosts Todd Starnes and Lauren Green, legendary apologist Josh McDowell, faith investigator J. Warner Wallace, American Family Association Public Policy Analyst Abraham Hamilton III, “Counter Culture Mom” Tina Marie Griffin and Juan Valdes, senior pastor of a Spanish-speaking congregation in Florida and the Reasons for Hope ministry.

The new Truth for a New Generation app is now available on Apple/iOS and Android devices and will provide relevant information about the 2018 TNG conference. This year’s conference will also feature a screening of the American Family Association feature-length film, “The God Who Speaks,” for which McFarland was a contributor, as well as a VIP “Gold Circle” seating, which will allow participants to interact with the speakers.
