I have read something very similar in one of the many books I have read but I can't remember which one. I have read books of conversion stories and books about evidence for the Book of Mormon. What I remember is that the translator in that story found multiple phrases that sound awkward in English but translate correctly into Arabic.

The email story about Sami Hanna was also posted on a website called Greater Things. Here is the link.

At the very bottom of the page is a post from a person who claims to be the son of Sami Hanna. This is what he has to say.
We grew up as neighbors of Russell Nelson, and it is true that Nelson gave a speech advocating that my father had affirmed the Semitic origins of the Book of Mormon. However, since this time, my father has fully retracted his so called "findings" and has left Mormonism.


My assessment is that it will be impossible to "prove" the Book of Mormon because our Heavenly Father wants it to be a matter of faith.
