The Composite Crime: The Origins of Starvation in Yemen



The Composite Crime: The Origins of Racial Starvation in Yemen is a groundbreaking book written by Hamdan Al-Alie and translated by Dr. Hatem Mohammed Al-Shamea. In this powerful and thought-provoking work, Al-Alie delves into the deeply troubling issue of racial discrimination and its devastating consequences in Yemen.

The book sheds light on the origins and impact of racism, emphasizing the urgent need for its unequivocal condemnation and criminalization. Al-Alie argues that racial discrimination not only violates the rights and privacy of individuals but also tears apart the social fabric of Yemen, perpetuating warfare, tragedy, and suffering.

Through meticulous research and compelling narratives, Al-Alie exposes the systemic nature of racial starvation and its dire effects on Yemeni society. The author explores various aspects of the crisis, including the manipulation of cultural narratives, the role of political and military forces, economic exploitation, forced displacement, and the looting of resources and aid.

With three insightful forewords by Dr. Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr, Dr. Abdulmalik Al-Mekhlafi, Nasr Taha Mustafa, and Fernando Carvajal, this book serves as a rallying cry for all those who fight against racial discrimination and advocate for a just and inclusive society. It is a call to prioritize coexistence, equal citizenship, and social justice as the pathway to a brighter future.

The Composite Crime is an essential read for scholars, activists, policymakers, and anyone concerned with human rights and the pursuit of a more equitable world. It challenges readers to confront the harsh realities of racial starvation in Yemen and inspires them to take action in the face of injustice.
