Freedom Fighter Book Review


Freedom Fighter

One Man’s Fight for One Free World

By Majed El Shafie

About the book:
Freedom Fighter: One Man's Fight for One Free World  -     
        By: Majed El Shafie
 
 
From Muslim to Christian activist! Explore the inspirational story of Majed El Shafie. After converting to Christianity, he was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death. Escaping to Canada, he formed the human rights organization One Free World International. Follow him back to the Near East as he attempts to end the persecution of believers.

It’s time to fight back!

This is the true story of one man’s continuing fight for a world free of religious persecution.

Majed El Shafie was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to die after he converted from Islam to Christianity. His dramatic story, and those of others worldwide who are suffering persecution, are told in shocking, yet sensitive detail. Especially startling is the true story of rescuing a very young Pakistani girl who experienced horrific sexual abuse—because her family would not convert to Islam.

Although hard to imagine and even harder to accept, this important truth about religious persecution is blatantly exposed. Millions of families are praying for help. They are suffering daily in China, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, and many other countries—solely because of their beliefs.

Freedom Fighter is Reverend El Shafie’s outreach—it follows his heroic work over a four-year period as he traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan to investigate claims of abuse, persecution, and slavery and to speak truth to governments that neglect and violate the human rights of their citizens.

This fight involves all believers—please help.

 
My Review:
This book is jam-packed with information and first person encounters of life in the Middle-East. Author Majed El Shafie has an amazing story along with the story of a 2 year old girl who was abused and left for dead. This book had me in tears from the brutality of fellow human beings and how they treat others based strictly on beliefs. As you read through the grueling truth and statistics of major countries in the East and how people are daily being persecuted and abused in multiple ways, I guarantee you will be ready to fight for human rights alongside Majed El Shafie and One Free World International. It makes me sick to hear of this unjustness, and why we never hear of these things on the news.

One of the best things about the book is the author gives us many ways to help; from sending letters to our members of congress to speaking out publicly to dedicating five minutes a day to prayer on behalf of all the families worldwide who are suffering. There are things we can all do to take part in the effort of saving lives and fighting for human rights!

Please read this book! It will surely change the way you think about the world, and how we in free countries might tend to take our freedom for granted.
