Luai Ahmed

Luai Ahmed is a columnist, journalist, and content creator who was born in Sana’a, Yemen, in 1993. He is the son of feminist human rights activist Amal Basha, who has fought for women’s rights in the Middle East since the 1980s.

In 2014, Luai fled Yemen for Sweden as a refugee due to his sexual orientation. He learned Swedish, sought education at a Swedish university, and eventually became a columnist for the liberal conservative newspaper Bulletin. He has written extensively about the Islamist threat in Europe, integration issues for immigrants, and antisemitism.

When October 7th happened, Luai started making English-language videos about the rising Jew-hatred in the West and the Middle East, and has taken a vocal stance against Hamas and Islamist terrorism. He recently visited Israel for the first time and he documented his trip to his growing group of followers on TikTok, X, and Instagram.
