Abstract:

"Born in the Old City of Sana'a, Yemen, to a pair of middle-class Shiite doctors, Mohammed Al Samawi was a devout Muslim raised to think of Jews as his enemy. Everything he believed was thrown into doubt, however, when he secretly received a copy of the Bible when he was twenty-one. Undergoing a metamorphosis, Mohammed began reaching out to Jews on social media, joined a peace-building organisation, and travelled to international interfaith conferences. When his activities drew death threats, Mohammed was forced to flee to the Southern port city of Aden, only to find his life further endangered when civil war broke out in the spring of 2015. Hiding in the bathroom of his apartment as gunfire and grenades exploded throughout the city, Mohammed - believing these were the final moments of his life - desperately appealed to friends across social media. Miraculously, Mohammed's plea was heard. Over thirteen days, four ordinary young people with zero experience in international diplomacy or military exfiltration worked across six technology platforms and ten time zones to save this innocent young man trapped between deadly forces - rebel fighters supported by Iran and Al Qaeda operatives supported by Saudi Arabia. The story of an improbable escape as riveting as the best page-turning thrillers, The Fox Hunt is also an unforgettable story of compassion, friendship, faith and redemption."--Provided by publisher.
