"Between us, if I am offered a job with FOX, I would take it - to change the arab nightmare to the american dream....I still have that dream. Maybe I will never be able to do it, but I have plans for my children - When they finish their high school, I will send them to America to study there. I will pay for their study, and they will stay there."
