Ramzi Yousef claims he's a Christian.

Jailed '93 WTC bomber claims he's now a Christian
Muslim terrorist Ramzi Yousef once bombed the World Trade Center for Allah, but now he purports to have found Jesus and converted to Christianity, according to new reports.

The Daily News recently learned that Yousef has shaved his beard, stopped reading the Muslim holy book, the Koran, and now eats pork, which is forbidden in Islam.

Yousef, the nephew of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, was convicted and is serving a life term for detonating a truck bomb under the twin towers in 1993 and plotting to blow up U.S.-bound airliners over the Pacific.
Told of the alleged religious conversion, former New York federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy wondered, "Does Christianity get a vote" on whether to accept him?

McCarthy, who put Yousef on the stand as a witness in the terrorism prosecution of the "Blind Sheik," Omar Abdel-Rahman, said the Pakistani thug has lived a "bad life of barbarity."

"It could be sincere. On the other hand, the Prophet Muhammed said war is deceit," he said.

Robert Hood, who served as warden from 2002 to 2005, told CBS that Yousef has a "Charlie Manson look," referring to the cult leader. If Yousef is playing Christian convert, "He's playing a game with someone."
.....corrections officer Barbara Batulis, who said that when news of the 9/11 attacks spread among the terrorist prisoners, "We had a lot of them jump up and down,...scream and yell and clap and they were very excited."

If true this is an answer to some of my prayers.

As one who's passionate about serving God and my country, I can't help speculating that "but for the grace of God there go I." What would I be like had I been born and indoctrinated in a place like Saudi Arabia or Gaza?

Another thought. If all the prayers for soldiers were answered would the war on terrorism end? What if God answered all the prayers for terrorists? I've started a blog about starting a prayer initiative at .
