Description

La historia conmovedora de un joven y su escape angustiante de una cruenta guerra civil en Yemen gracias a un plan urdido en las redes sociales por un pequeNo grupo interconfesional de activistas del oeste. Mohammed Al Samawi era un musulmAn devoto que consideraba a los cristianos y los judios como el enemigo. Pero despues de leer una Biblia y conectarse con judios y cristianos en las redes sociales, Mohammed se convierte en activista, con la misiOn de promover el diAlogo y la cooperaciOn en Yemen. Y entonces llegan las amenazas de muerte: primero por medio de Facebook y luego por llamadas telefOnicas anOnimas. Para proteger a su familia y a si mismo, Mohammed huye al sur, a la ciudad portuaria de Aden. No podria saber que Aden estaba por convertirse en el corazOn de la guerra civil entre el norte y el sur, el campo de batalla para una guerra subsidiaria financiada por terceros: IrAn y Arabia Saudita. Al estallar los tiroteos y detonar las granadas a lo largo de la ciudad, Mohammed se esconde en el baNo de su departamento y desesperadamente clama a sus contactos de Facebook. Por milagro, responde un puNado de personas que apenas conoce. Durante trece dias, cuatro jOvenes comunes y corrientes, con nada de experiencia en absoluto en lo que se refiere a la diplomacia o estrategia militar, utilizan seis plataformas de tecnologia y trabajan a traves de diez husos horarios para rescatar a ese joven inocente atrapado entre fuerzas mortales. A young man's moving story of war, friendship, and hope in which he recounts his harrowing escape from a brutal civil war in Yemen with the help of a daring plan engineered on social media by a small group of interfaith activists in the West. Mohammed Al Samawi was a devout Muslim raised to think of Christians and Jews as his enemy. But when Mohammed was twenty-three, he secretly received a copy of the Bible, and what he read cast doubt on everything he'd previously believed. After connecting with Jews and Christians on social media, and at various international interfaith conferences, Mohammed became an activist, making it his mission to promote dialogue and cooperation in Yemen. Then came the death threats: first on Facebook, then through terrifying anonymous phone calls. To protect himself and his family, Mohammed fled to the southern port city of Aden. He had no way of knowing that Aden was about to become the heart of a north-south civil war, the battleground for a well-funded proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. As gunfire and grenades exploded throughout the city, Mohammed hid in the bathroom of his apartment and desperately appealed to his contacts on Facebook. Miraculously, a handful of people he barely knew responded. Over thirteen days, four ordinary young people with zero experience in diplomacy or military exfiltration worked across six technology platforms and ten-time zones to save this innocent young man trapped between deadly forces.
