An interesting story, covering domestic abuse, incest, child molestation, parental abduction, religious searching. This is a true story of what one mother had to endure and suffer because of the kidnapping of her son. It takes years, but she gets her son back, not without trauma and heartbreak.
On Saturday, October 12, 2002, 14 year-old Mohamad ("Moe") Kassem was abducted by his Syrian-born father and taken to the Middle-East. In August 2007, his father/abductor was killed along with his step-mother and youngest half-brother, in a car-rollover near Hafr Al-Batn, in Northeastern Saudi Arabia. The accident left Moe critically brain-injured and comatose. Saudi Prince Muhammad bin Naif bin Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud, the current Minister of the Interior and nephew of King Abdullah, personally sponsored Moe's medical care and his mother's travel to, and accommodations in Saudi Arabia. This book chronicles years of child and spousal physical, mental and sexual abuse that culminated in international parental child abduction, tragedy and hope.
