Joy! Nonie Darwish has become a Christian!

I just came across an ad for a conference being put on by a Messianic Jew in the Twin Cities and Nonie Darwish is one of the speakers and is introduced as a woman who is formerly Muslim but has now become a Christian. She is speaking at Grace church of Eden Prairie. I did a post on her earlier and on her book, Now They Call Me Infidel, where she shares her journey of coming to the United States and talks about her website Arabs For Israel. I just knew it had to be that she would eventually turn to Christ. She was so close to Christian in everything she said, and in her love for the Jewish people.

She is an Arab raised in Eqypt whose father was high up in government. She was raised in the Muslim faith and knows a lot about it and how Arabs and Muslims think. She is against radical Islam and that is the meaning of her book's title. By resisting radical Islamic beliefs she has made herself an infidel in their eyes. She wasn't referring to her conversion to Christianity, although she has surely made herself an infidel now!

She also made an appearance in the movie Obsession, which warns about radical Islam.

Read here a synopsis of her life and beliefs.
