To My Dear Fans,
My thirst is still being quenched by my childhood memories. Neither Canada nor the US has been able to quench my thirst or have given me quietness and tranquility. I am still unable to establish an understanding and a harmonious relationship between myself and these countries… I still feel that my memories and my entire body and soul are attached to my homeland every moment of my life. My memories keep taking me back to my original homeland, gathering the heritage of a people that has refused to desert its homeland in spite of severe hardships. Here I am, still wandering around in the streets of beloved Jerusalem, and I am still hearing the chanting coming out of the holy Aqsa Mosque’s minaret.
Farewell, till we meet on the beloved soil of Palestine, InshaAllah.
