Did a Kuwaiti prince embrace Christianity? Video prompts dispute
January 17, 2012
A Christian television station broadcasting in the Arabic world has aired a statement by a man identified as a Kuwaiti prince, proclaiming his faith in Jesus Christ.
The videotaped statement quotes Abdullah al Sabah as declaring that he is a Christian. Regarding Islam's prohibition against religious conversions, he says that "if they kill me because of it, then I will appear before Jesus Christ and be with Him for all eternity."
The government of Kuwait said that the video is a fraud, and pointed out that there is no one named Abdullah al Sabah in the Kuwaiti royal family.
