Where did the name Spirit of Martyrdom come from? 

Spirit of Martyrdom was founded in 2008, with the name derived from the title of David’s original book, Spirit of Martyrdom For the Love of Muslims, co-authored with Mujahid El Masih. (The title of this book has since been changed to Fearless Love –In the Midst of Terror.)
