Mohammed Al Samawi


Mohammed Al Samawi was born in 1986 in Yemen. In his midtwenties, he became involved in interfaith groups promoting dialogue between Muslims, Christians, and Jews. In 2015, during the Yemeni Civil War, he fled from Aden to the United States. Since his entry to the United States, he has worked for several NGOs that promote peace and religious tolerance.

Mohammed is the author of The Fox Hunt, published by HarperCollins, a memoir about his introduction to interfaith activism and his harrowing war-time escape from Yemen to the US. A major motion picture based on the book is now in production from Fox 2000 Pictures.
