Once An Arafat Man: Book Review


Where to begin. This was an incredibly autobiographical novel written by Tass Saada about his journey from being a sniper assassin for Fatah under Yasser Arafat in the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) to leading Christian ministries in the Gaza Strip and in Israel itself.

The book details Tass’s life growing up in Saudi Arabia and Qatar and the Muslim views instilled in him about the Jews and Israeli’s in general. Like many others, Tass seeked death to all Jews and wished to and win back [what he once believed to be] Palestine’s land.

Tass’s story is extremely unique in its’ nature to the point where it seems unreal. He is a gifted man with an affinity to excel in anything he does; whether that be fighting in the PLO or finding his true fulfilling affinity in ministry work. Though primarily a brutal and gruesome tale, Tass’s story transitions into an incredible testament revealing how God can change a person’s heart.
