Farea Al-Muslimi testifyies before the Senate Committee on the issue of Drone Strikes in Yemen

Farea Al-Muslimi was one of my fellow students here at AUB. He’s a very intelligent fellow, and despite the language barrier we’d encountered several times in our discussions, I learned quite a bit about how things went on here in the Middle East, especially in his home country of Yemen. You can only imagine how surprised I was to find this video on my Facebook newsfeed. In it, Farea eloquently presents both sides of his experience with the United States, describing the complex array emotions he now feels towards it in light of a drone strike that targeted his village back in Yemen.

Farea, يعطيك ألف عافيه, و ألف مبروك ع نجهتك! انشالله بزيدو عليك ال ناجح !
