Wow. Most images I’ve seen of the Yemenis are either circa Operation Magic Carpet, or are wearing folk costumes in Israel as part of a musical ensemble.
Am I mistaken, or is that a picture of Saddam Hussein on the back wall of the tea shop [ca. 2:40].
Thanks for sharing this, The world needs to know about all the Jewish people living in strife in Arab lands!
I loved it, thank you so much, it helps to see and know of such people and to keep them in our prayers...again, thank you, G-D leads your steps.
