Walid Shoebat is a Palestinian American, who was born in the West Bank to an American mother, emigrated to the United States, converted to Christianity from Islam, and became a Zionist. Showbat was a frequent, if controversial, public speaker on terrorism and Islam in the 2000s. Shoebat is the founder of the Walid Shoebat Foundation, an organization that claims to "fight for the Jewish people". He is sometimes paid for his appearances and solicits donations for the foundation.
Wikipedia classifies him as a Christian Zionist and states various controversies, such as claims of earlier involvement in the Palestine Liberation Organization, claims of an attack on an Israeli Bank, criticisms of Islamization, support of Israel, various controversial pro-Israel statements, and financial issues.
