Millennial and Gen-Z women say they've been inspired to convert to Islam by the Israel-Hamas war - and are sharing their religious awakenings on TikTok.
Recent converts say the conflict, which began with the murder of 1,200 Israelis on October 7, become a driving factor for their decision to join the Muslim faith.
Experts suggested for many, the choice is the 'ultimate rebellion against the West'.
Among those sharing their journey is a self-described 'leftist queer gremlin' named Alex, who recently purchased a copy of the Quran - even though most interpretations of Islam take a dim view of LGBT relationships.
Alex, who has begun covering her hair with a hijab in line with Islamic teachings on modesty, says she began attending pro-Palestine marches after the October 7 terror attacks and the retaliatory strikes on Gaza.
She purchased a copy of the Quran on October 24 and took her shahada, a professing of Muslim faith, a short time after.
Alex was encouraged to convert after seeing TikToks by Megan Rice, another recent convert.
Rice posted on October 20 that she planned to read the holy book for the first time.
'It just seems that Palestinians have this ironclad faith even in the face of losing quite literally everything,' she told her then 400,000 followers.
Days later she founded the World Religion Book Club where she conducts live readings of the Quran. The online community now boasts 13,000 members.
Israel's bombardment of Gaza in the wake of the Hamas is where her conversion 'all started' she told followers.
Many of the videos from predominantly Western women feature a variation on the hashtag 'revert'.
Reversion is the Islamic belief that everyone is born into the Muslim faith and so any conversion is simply a return to the religion.

Lucky for us that for the majority of them it's just a fad and in a few years it will be all but forgotten.
In the mean time I'd like to thank the Democrat party for the latest fashion trend. I wonder if Macy's will sell Niqabs in rainbow colors for when Queers for Palestine converts?
I feel sorry for the normal males of these generations.
The pickings look to be mighty slim.
It’s not a bad move.
Islamic men are limited to beating their women with a stick not bigger than their thumb.
So that’s a plus.
In Afghanistan, Islamic men can kill their wives or daughters if they don’t obey his 5 year old son....
of white American women, yes. Go eastern european or asian
