The story goes like this: a young "christian" man Gabriel stood up and began by questioning Yusuf Estes (who claimed to be a former christian preacher) why he'd later convert to Islam.
The question lasted over 1 minute, then Yusuf Estes raised his head and looked to his right but couldn't find Gabriel, and he said there was light shining to his eyes so he couldn't see where Gabriel was, and then he looked to his left to finally see Gabriel: "There you are!" (makes you think what Estes was doing for the whole time during the questioning while he could easily locate Gabriel while he was being questioned). It was clear in the end that the purpose of that episode was to establish the "fact" that he didn't know what was coming... as he emphasized 16 minutes into the video (see video from 16:14 - 18:30, I mark the YouTube to jump directly there)
This is where Estes exposed the conversion was staged:
Estes: "You brothers and sisters are going to see something strange. Because Gabriel and I have never met... we're not setting this up. He doesn't even know what I was going to say... but Gabriel you've been praying in your heart asking god to guide you, or you wouldn't be standing there right now - is it true or false?"
Gabriel: "thats true"
Estes: "there you go, there's your verification when you said thats true, and I know it because I have been through this again and again and again and thousands of people are wathed come to Islam like Gabriel, they're looking for truth... they're not looking for Islam, they're not looking for Quran, they're just looking for truth - real truth....(see that 'truth'?)
Note: Gabriel has never spoken after his initial question in this video, what a miracle Estes have already known that he was ready to take his shahada, and next they did just that!(after listening to a very un-impressive speech!)
(if you watch the video, notice their facial expressions throughout the video and I don't see how that could be one skeptic going through a supposely life-changing event)
See also at 18:20, Estes tried to downplay his native language by claiming 'superiority' of Arabic language by pointing to the word Islam would require 5 english words: "Surrender, Submission, Obedience, Sincerity, Peace" in order to describe it. And then notice the response of Gabriel when he said "really!?" in such "surprise" (that gave him such confidence to give his life to Islam?) Does anyone has any idea how existing of a word that is a composite of 5 different meanings make it a so supremely superior than a language that actually distinguishes the meanings?(afterall Estes needed to use the 5 words to describe the meaning of Islam?)
It really amazes me that muslims appear to buy this stuff, there are a few more "conversions" by the sisters after Gabriel, one even converted in tears...(I'm not going to analyse the ladies, the video tried to "protect their privacy" by not showing them)
During his speech, Estes clearly lied about christians and christian preachers, even twisted a few verses from the bible (he dared to combine two separate sentences from Jesus to make it sound as if they are from one sentence in order to enhance "biblical violence"... I'll locate the part later when I have time, but I encourage everybody to watch the entire video to see whats going on... I have seen this happening in Zakir Naik's programs as well when unbelieving ladies simply ask questions and so touched by answers they couldn't immediately verify but they immediately converted on the spot.
