Brigitte Gabriel is a NY Times best-selling author, leading expert on global Islamic terrorism and Chairman of ACT! for America, the largest national security grassroots organization in America. Her latest book is RISE: In Defense of Judeo-Christian Values and Freedom.
Ms. Gabriel started ACT for America in an effort to protect the citizens of the United States from the horrors she experienced as a young girl in her native Lebanon. When Ms. Gabriel was 10 years old, militant radical Islamists launched rockets into her family’s home in their Christian town in southern Lebanon destroying her home and seriously injuring her as they raged war against the “infidels.” Her family was forced to seek refuge in an underground 8 x 10-foot bomb shelter where they lived for the next seven years. Often surviving on mere weeds, they had to crawl through a ditch to get water from a nearby spring while avoiding Islamic snipers.
