Bartholomew’s Notes on Religion reports that a recent luncheon in Houston, which was held to raise awareness of the Third Annual Holocaust March of Remembrance next month and drew over 200 Christian leaders, featured as its keynote speaker none other than Kamal Saleem
And here's an old post about his 'conversion' story, or should I say stories:
The evangelical fraudster, ‘ex muslim terrorist’ Kamal Saleem (aka Khodor Kamal Saleem Al Shami), STILL has some supporters amongst the evangelical community – chiefly Pat Robertson and the 700 Club brigade – despite Kamal Saleem clearly being on par with the other evangelical fraudster – Ergun Caner.
In this episode we bring you Kamal Saleem’s THREE DIFFERENT conversion stories. How in the world did this Arab Christian manage to dupe so many Christians? Why have his supporters (what’s left of them) not clicked onto the fact he has THREE DIFFERENT Islam to Christianity stories circulating?
Kamal Saleem’s THREE Conversion stories
Conversion Story 1 - ABNSAT
In this conversion story Kamal Saleem is hospitalized through a car crash and ‘Jesus’ came to him whilst he is on his hospital bed and healed his bones.
Conversion story 2 - KSLTV
In this conversion story, the doctors and the man who tended to him on the road (post crash) changed Kamal Saleem's life. There is NO claim of ‘Jesus’ paying him a hospital visit and healing his bones. In fact this conversion story is very much due to the love Christians offered to him.
Conversion story 3 - CBN
In this conversion story, Kamal Saleem was healed by the doctors through conventional medical means (in this version, ‘Jesus’ did not heal him nor did he visit him at hospital ).
Kamal Saleem went to the doctor’s home to convalesce and fully recuperate after being discharged from hospital. Once he was well enough to take care of himself, Kamal Saleem had his hospital bills paid for by donations from local Christians and was also given a new car. He went home and questioned his ‘Muslim faith’ and then had a vision of ‘Jesus’ in his home.
Synopsis + Kamal Saleem hiding names
Kamal Saleem claimed he saw ‘Jesus’ and was healed by him in the hospital
BUT Kamal contradicted himself by claiming he recovered at the hands of the doctors (no mention of seeing ‘Jesus’ in hospital nor being healed by ‘Jesus’) and went home and saw ‘Jesus’ after attempting suicide.
BUT BUT Kamal Saleem in another conversion story has no mention of seeing ‘Jesus’ or being healed by ‘Jesus’ – the doctors and Christian love changed his life.
So which is it:
1. Was Kamal's 'conversion' due to being visited and healed by 'Jesus' in hospital?
2. OR was Kamal's conversion due to him recovering from a car accident, then going home once fully recovered to question his Muslim faith and seeing 'Jesus' in his home.
3. OR was Kamal's conversion due to Christian love and kindness from the doctors and the community who took him in?
KAMAL has presented ALL of the above. I'd like to present another option:
Kamal Saleem is a fraud who has profiteered by deceiving Christians...
As previously noted, Christians doubt Kamal Saleem’s stories and Kamal Saleem has refused to divulge his real name, the names of the doctors and hospital (allegedly) concerned. Got something to hide, Kamal? Time to come clean…
Christians desperate for former Muslims turned Christians
Hmmm, Kamal Saleem’s contradictory conversion stories are more obvious than the Gospel contradictions yet he is STILL milking gullible Christians for cash. Interesting, very interesting!
The underlying reasons behind why con artists such as Ergun Caner, Kamal Saleem and Walid Shoebat can survive and even thrive in evangelical communities despite being obvious frauds is simple; some evangelical Christians are desperate to evangelize the Muslim community by hook or crook.
Quite why folk are so easily duped by such conmen is left to you to ponder upon...
Christians doubt Kamal Saleem
