This story is like no other.
Mark Halawa was born to a refugee from the Land of Israel and was taught to hate Jews and everything that the State of Israel stands for.
Prayers to destroy the Jewish people were the norm.
The hate and indoctrination permeated the entire being of a young person growing up like Mark.
His only concept of a Jew was a whole slew of negative stereotypes.
However, there was a secret that Mark would soon discover.
Mark was not a run-of-the-mill Muslim.
Mark discovered at the age of 26 that he was not what he ever could have imagined he was.
