“As much as I feel Australian and as much as I consider Australia to be my country, I’m still an Arab Australian or a Palestinian Australian. I never knew what it was like to grow up in your own neighbourhood amongst your own people, on your own streets, going to your own schools, and growing up speaking your own language and achieving things in your own country. I’ve always lived in other peoples countries.”
