Born into a large Sunni Muslim Lebanese family in the heart of the Middle East, Kamal Saleem

was taught to hate Jews and Christians. Recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood for jihadi militancy

as a small child, he completed his first bloody terror mission into Israel for the Palestinian


Liberation Organization (PLO) at the age of seven.

Phone: 703.273.1300 ext 316.

Kamal ran terror operations as a young man in the service of Yassir Arafat, Abu Yussif and Abu Zayed (PLO/Fatah). Kamal Saleem fought with the Afghan Mujahadeen against the Soviets... before he and his patrons turned their attention to the destruction of the West—and Western freedoms­—through Islamicization. Kamal thirsted for jihadic death to America.

Lent 2011

As the result of a near-fatal auto accident, Kamal Saleem was confronted by the Judeo-Christian


ethic: Rescued from the wreckage and nursed back to health by devout Christians, he defected


entirely from Islamic militancy­—as well as Islam itself. As a result, Kamal became an “apos-

Contact: Laura Workman,, ext 316. Summer Musical­—Truro Church is excited to announce Fiddler on the Roof as the 2011 Summer musical! Mark your calendars for performances on July 22–24, 2011. After last year’s smashing hit OZ!, we are looking forward to another great summer of dramatic fun!

Men’s Retreat and Spiritual Growth Weekend March 25–27, 2011—Abiding Under the Shadow of the Almighty during Spiritual Warfare. Another issue to be considered at this year’s conference is discipleship. Using Greg Ogden’s book “Transforming Discipleship” we will be encouraged to form discipleship triads as a way of accelerating our growth in Christ-likeness and Christian virtue and power. Jesus had twelve disciples, but he often met with just James, John and Peter separate from the others as he prepared them for “feeding the sheep” in his absence. Thus the openness and vulnerability natural to small groups of three Christ himself used to reach the men who would reach the world. You can not get lost nor can you hide in a group of three. Are you ready? Come and find out! Brochures with details are available in the Covered Walkway and from ushers. Conference information and online registration: www.advmen. com. Scholarships available.
