YEMEN… I’M OUT OF HERE

A documentary novel that transports you in the Arabic Peninsula and more precisely in Yemen…
An unfortunately ‘little known’ land in terms of treasures it owes…
A land ‘completely forgotten’ since March 26th 2015 due to a war that has swept away everything in its path…
A ‘notorious’ land in regard to godless and lawless terrorisms which decided to settle there…

Thousand of thanks to Jean-François Bernardini and the Band I Muvrini to allow their song ‘O Isma’ – Tragic true story with a wonderful message of humanity in it – to be freely displayed on Orniat Website along with the works ‘Cher Yémen… Je m’en vais’ (French version) & ‘Yemen… I’m out of here’ (English version)

‘I would like to deeply thank my friend Mohamed Bahamdun for his contribution regarding to the English version of ‘ORNIAT SERVICES’

In a landscape worthy of fairy tales, live a proud people…the Yemenis. Although individually unique, they have some traits in common such as impulsiveness, stubbornness and generosity. They are also gullible – touching because it’s rare and disarming because it contrasts so much with their approach, which is sometimes a bit rude but never disrespectful.

I, luckily enough ‘for many reasons’, went over there for professional purposes. Falling in love quickly with the land and its inhabitants, I suffered more than once seeing the tragedies happening in that country, which never wanted anything but peace! Sadly, many decision-makers could have put an end to the succession of horrors that unfolded there, but they were too busy with their own agendas and egos to pay attention to anything else.

Other foreigners then joined me… with our Yemeni brothers-in-arms we all set up a Team, the Dream Team, which one day was officially disbanded, but which in our hearts and souls will forever live on…

In any story there is the ‘bad’… in this case, al-Qaïda and the Islamic State…who are they? Where do they come from? What do they want? Why? How? They – I call them the Beast and its Lineage – are aberrations of humanity, having more history than future, which are things they would understand if they only realized that they are not who they once swore on the Holy Book to become. They do not fight imperialism because they were created by imperialism to serve a certain kind of imperialism…

Cher Yémen… Je m’en vais’ (French version) & ‘Yemen… I’m out of here’ (English version) are a stirring homage is a stirring homage to a country, to its inhabitants, to our Team and to many others…

It is also a message of peace…

It is partly the life-account of a human being who has not always been fully conscious of Life in all its aspects…
