Product Description

Review

"Ebrahim’s life is an eloquent plea to terrorists — indeed, to anyone who commits violence out of bigotry and hatred — to stop and consider the impact on children. His tale speaks to the suffering of children everywhere — in Gaza, Israel, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria — who are caught up in the raging intolerance of adults. In emotional detail, the terrorist’s son takes us through the traumas of his life — school bullying, social withdrawal, feelings of suicidal worthlessness — that dogged him from the moment his mother awakened the boy in his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pajamas to inform him that something was horribly wrong and they had to flee immediately from their home in Cliffside Park, N.J." (Washington Post)

"[A] book you can't put down. Hearing the story of Zak Ebrahim—the son of El-Sayyid Nosair who, when Ebrahim was just 7 years old, killed the leader of the Jewish Defense League and went on to plan the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center from prison—is one thing. (A gut-wrenching, how-is-this-real-life? thing.) Reading it in intimate, terrifying detail—the confusion, the bullying, the burden—is another. (An even more gut-wrenching, how-is-this-real-life? thing.) The Terrorist's Son... tells a detailed account of Ebrahim's story, shared at a TED talk, of his impossibly brutal childhood and adolescence and how he became nothing like his dad." (GQ)

"In his powerful, affecting memoir (written with former EW deputy editor Jeff Giles), he says, ''My father lost his way — but that didn't stop me from finding mine.'' (Entertainment Weekly)

"The author's father helped plan the 1993 Wold Trade Center bombing. Instead of following in those violent footsteps, Ebrahim now speaks out against terrorism. An astonishing memoir." (People)

About the Author

Zak Ebrahim was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on March 24, 1983, the son of an Egyptian industrial engineer and an American school teacher. When Ebrahim was seven, his father shot and killed the founder of the Jewish Defense League, Rabbi Meir Kahane. From behind bars his father, El-Sayyid Nosair, co-masterminded the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Ebrahim spent the rest of his childhood moving from city to city, hiding his identity from those who knew of his father. He now dedicates his life to speaking out against terrorism and spreading his message of peace and nonviolence.

Probably the best $12 I ever spent on a book - despite it only taking me about 2 hours to read. I couldn't put it down! It was clever, moving, inspirational and quite surprising! Zak Ebrahim is a wonderful writer and a wonderful speaker and I would recommend this book to anyone. It's a quick read but well worth the experience.

And Zak, if you ever come here to read the comments, you should totally try and meet with Jon Stewart if you get the chance! I'm sure he would help promote your book and I'm sure he's way cooler in real life! Thank you again for your courage and your wonderful little book.

I was expecting more from this book that had some coverage. The sentence "I am tired of hating people" (AKA his mom) which is in the marketing line is without a doubt the best one in the all book. The writer, who's not a writer actually, might have written this book as part of a personal therapy- which is fine- but then, it should be free and does not worth the 8-9$ I paid to download it.

Compelling! A heart wrenching account of a man who made a bold choice to stray away from evil despite the deep seeded influence of his estranged father. Goes to show the environment may be molding only to some extent. And then there is ALWAYS a choice to do things differently. To do it better. Loved it!
