“De-radicalization is a rough process, and I’m extremely pleased that I cleansed myself of the antisemitism I grew up with,” Yemeni-born content creator and journalist Luai Ahmed says. “I’ve been writing ever since I was 13. I always wanted to write in the Jerusalem Post, actually,” says Ahmed. His father was the owner of a newspaper who was murdered in 1998 for his political activism and writing, which was critical of the regime. He describes his mother as a feminist and human rights activist who decided against all norms to take off her hijab and end her first marriage.
