Note, Walid Shoebat ( http://www.shoebat.com )and Ibrahim Abdullah ( http://www.shoebat.com/abdallah.php) make similar claims as Zachariah Anani. See also this film: http://www.shoebat.com/trailer.php?PHPSESSID=3059aff4856709b6b64dcd106a677ff7
Note, all these speakers are of Lebanese origin and are stanuch supporters of Israel. Is there somehow a connection between what they claim about Islam and Muslims and their pro-Israel positions? We are just asking, but it does seem to us that all these supposed ex-Muslims go out of their way to let the world know how much they love and support Israel.
"O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done." (Quran: 49:6)
Zachariah Anani makes many claims, but can he provide actual and concrete proof of what he says? Here are some of his major claims:
He claims to be a former Muslim
He claims that he was born into a family of Muslim clergy in Beirut
He claims that his grandfather and great grandfather had been imams (religious authorities), and his family, so he claims, expected him to carry the torch.
He claims that as at the age of 13 he joined one of the many military groups in Lebanon that existed in the early '70s.
He claims thart he was "trained to fight and kill Jews, and to hate Christians and Americans."
He claims to have killed 223 people in the name of Islam and gained points from his former militia for doing so.
He claims to have shot and killed a Muslim for trying to make him get up for Fajr prayer
He claims that he met a Christian missionary, had a spiritual journey and converted to Christainity
He claims that his father hired assassins to kill him
He claims that when he was in Lebanon he was nearly beheaded and was only saved when an army patrol came by and the Islamic gang dispersed leaving him with huge wound on his neck.
He claims that as a result of that attack he nearly bled to death and was actually technically dead for 7 minutes before being revived.
He claims that while he lived in Lebanon Muslim leaders called him to the local mosque and interrogated him. He claims that the imam asked intelligent questions, and Anani felt the inadequacy of his own answers. "I knew nothing about Islam, nothing about Christianity," he is quoted as saying.
Despite this, he actually claims to know Islam intimately
He claims that in in 1996, in order to avoid persecutions, he entered Canada as a refugee.
He claims that he has been attacked numerous times for his faith as a Christian, even in Canada.
He claims that in Canada, where he now lives, his house and car have been burnt, his family attacked physically as well as personal attacks on himself.
He claims to meet Muslims regularly in restaurants and cafés to tell them about his faith.
He claims to have found many mistakes in the Quran.
He also claims that Islam and Muslims have a worldwide strategy for conquest and that they are on the march.
He claims that those Muslims who are nice are not really true Muslims and that all one has to do is read the Islamic doctrine to find this out. Chapter (9) of the Qur'an is nothing but a declaration of war, he says.
He claims that Islamic doctrine teaches nothing less than the "ambushing, seizing and slaying" of non-believers -- especially Jews and Christians.
Finally, he claims that Islam is a deadly threat and in fact the title of one of his lectures is "The Deadly Threat of Islam," in which he describes Muslims as worshipping a god who "fights and kills" and "strikes with terror," and allows no prisoners in battles against non-believers.
