Former Terrorist, Walid Shoebat, urges Israel not to sign any treaty with Islamic entities, and instead to do what it has to do for defense.

He describes himself as a once-radicalized Muslim willing to die for the cause of Jihad, until he left Islam and converted to Christianity in 1994. As a member of the PLO, Walid Shoebat admits he was involved in terror activity.  

He was imprisoned in Jerusalem where he was soon recruited to plant a bomb in Bethlehem at a bank - when it was still under Israeli authority.  No one was hurt in that planned attack, which today he breaths a sigh of relief about.

Shoebat, whose mother had American citizenship, eventually made his way to the United States in 1978. There, he entered studies at Loop College in Chicago, Illinois where he was recruited at a hotel “Terror Conference” by terror members operating in the USA. He was trained for Jihad activities in the USA along with many other young foreigners as well as US citizens.  It wasn't until1993, that Shoebat had a turn around from Islam. He had married an American Catholic born woman, and in a theological debate with her, attempted to convince her that "the Jews had corrupted the Bible, and that they were prophet-killers,” When challenging him to prove his claims, he read her bible and came to the conclusion that Islam and the Koran were wrong. 

Israel has only two choices -do what is right and tick off the whole world, or do what is wrong and destroy itself in the process.

Shoebat has since been a strong and outspoken defender of Israel and the West, and has taken a stance against Islamic ideology as well as its political ambitions.  He will be joining Tamar Yonah on her radio show each week, to give his analysis on the Arab world, as well as 'whistle blow' on what the Arab enemies of Israel are saying in Arabic to their own people, and compare it to what they say in English to the West.  

Last night on Tamar's 'News, Views & Call-in Show', Shoebat commented on the Iranian nuclear issue and stated, "[Iran] will never make peace with Israel, so Israel should do what it does best, basically defend itself."  He added that "Hezbollah is a major threat, and it comes from Iran. Iran is trying to build it's horn from Iraq, Israel must do whatever is in it's power not to allow the Americans to pull out of Iraq - which would be a great danger for Israel."  When asked by Yonah if he believed that Israel should go in and destroy the Hamas, annex Gaza, and make it a more peaceful place, Shoebat responded, "Look, Israel has only two choices -do what is right and tick off the whole world, or do what is wrong and destroy itself in the process.  There is no other choice.  So if they play the game with the Muslim world, they're going to end up being choked at the noose."  Shoebat shared a quip, "History only repeats itself, only on the fool. "...this [Islam] is an entity that will never make peace with Israel." and warns the Israeli people not to sign a treaty with any Islamic entity.
