As a gay Christian, the 25-year-old grandson of one of the founders of the jihadist group Hamas faced certain execution in the Middle East — at the hands of his own bloodthirsty family.

So he changed his name to “John Calvin” — and moved to an undisclosed location in New York City to pursue the American Dream.

“I’ve lost count of how many threats there are on my life, and yet I prevail,” Calvin said in a recent interview with CNN Money.

Calvin left the West Bank when he was 14, fleeing his jihadi grandfather, Said Bilal, and other relatives in the family terrorism business.

Inspired by the book “The Da Vinci Code,” he began studying Christianity, deciding to convert.

Soon afterward, his father and other family members began plotting to murder him — in a ­so-called “honor killing.”

With a price on his head, Calvin moved to Canada, changing his name and ­becoming a Christian.

As an adult in Edmonton, he also came out as gay, CNN reported.
