Publisher's Description

At age 17, Palestinian Tass Saada ran away to become a PLO sniper, onetime chauffeur for Yasser Arafat, and a Muslim immersed in anti-Israeli activity. As a man he moved to America, started a family, and eventually became a Christian. Then he risked retribution as he returned home to share his faith with his family and former boss. Once an Arafat Man is a story of the ultimate triumph of love over hatred, of reconciliation over divisions. It’s a story that can inspire us all to overcome the conflicts in our own lives.

ChristianBookPreviews

Tass Saada understands terrorists. He understands their passion and devotion to their cause. How? He was one. Becoming a sniper for the PLO at 17 years old, he personally worked for Yasser Arafat, even becoming his chauffeur. In Once an Arafat Man, Saada tells his incredible story of his early fascination and association with the PLO cause and how he eventually risked his life by becoming a Christian.

Saada moved around the Middle East with his family as a refugee during his youth, but he found ways to continue his terrorist indoctrination, even getting accepted into a PLO training camp. He finally arrived in America, despite his father’s objections of going to “that satanic country”. While living with a friend in Columbia, Missouri, Saada decided to stay in the United States, but he didn’t have the proper documentation. He realized he could stay if he married an American, so he met a girl and accomplished his goal. He planned to leave her, but a pregnancy changed his mind and he decided he would make the marriage work.

He developed a blossoming career as a chef, leaving his wife and children in Missouri to take a job in California. His career began to quickly unravel, and he returned to his family. His amazing salvation story is the turning point in the book and is a wonderful testimony to God’s grace, proving that “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:15). It also put his life in peril with his own family for rejecting his Muslim faith.

Saada eventually had the opportunity to visit with Arafat privately and told him of his new relationship with God. He and his wife founded and operate Hope for Ishmael, a foundation aiming to reconcile Arabs and Jews.

Saada’s exciting story powerfully demonstrates how God can change the heart of a man full of hate to a heart full of love and compassion. -- Jeff Friend, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Excellent book! If one is looking for how God intervenes for His ultimate purposes, this is a book you will want to read. All the right people in all the right places at all the right times ~ all an orchestration of God's divine providence. There is much significance to the age-old truth that the past does not define us - God does.

    Tass had quite an early indoctrination into terrorism, having been brought up in the Muslim faith. His miraculous story in how he was able to come to the US, and his life was completely changed when he found Christ through a relationship with a man who took an interest in him. His true friend, Charlie Sharp, has had a great impact on many young people through his ministry at Heartland, here in N. E. Missouri.

    This book was very enlightening, because it helped me understand the powerful influence and cultural mindset of the Middle East. We need to really pray for these people, as they have been forbidden to consider any other god, especially Jesus Christ, as their Lord and Savior , at the risk of persecution, and threats of even death from their own families, as the author had to endure. It's a miraculous story of God's intervention into the life of a once spiteful (toward Christians and Jews, especially) man, whose life was turned around, as was his family's...great reading.

    Fascinating Story of Hope

    "Once an Arafat Man: The True Story of How a PLO Sniper Found a New Life" is a fascinating read. As the title indicates, this is a true story of a former Fatah fighter. Tass Saada was born in a Palestinian refugee camp in the Gaza strip. His parents left their land in Israel at the encouragement of the neighboring Muslim countries. After the failure of the 1948 war, they (with many others) were displaced. He grew up in Saudi Arabia and later Qatar.

    Saada, like many young frustrated Palestinians, grew to respect Yasir Arafat and his rhetoric about Palestinians standing up for their rights. He fled from his home and joined the movement in its infancy. As a teenager he became a sniper and fought in many terrorist skirmishes.

    Eventually his father's influence brought him back out of the Fatah, just before Black September's chaos, and he wound up ultimately in America. There for many years he succeeded in business and lived the American dream, with its money, prestige and also its sinful vices. Then he met Jesus, and the rest is history!

    His story of conversion is amazing, and the transformation in his life and family is dramatic. God had his hand on this man and eventually he became the founder of Hope for Ishmael a non-profit organization that aims to reconcile Jews and Muslims, and that also aids the many Palestinians caught in the crossfire of the Middle-East conflict. God took Tass from being a one-time chauffeur to Arafat, and allowed him to share the Gospel with the Muslim leader in the final years of his life.

    Saada's story is a celebration of God's grace. Along the way, Saada has some wise Gospel words to speak about the Middle-East conflict. He finds the Bible's honorable treatment of Hagar and Ishmael to have special significance in our understanding of this conflict. He also stresses God's promise in Ez. 47: 21-23 that "the aliens [foreigners] who have settled among you and who have children... along with you they are to be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel." (NIV)

    His story will also challenge you to see God's hand at work in your own life. This book will open your heart to the suffering of the Middle-East and give hope! I highly recommend this quick read. May Jesus be exalted in the Middle East!
