Judyth: How and when did you know that you would be a journalist or an author?
Gabriel: I still remember that when I was little boy, about 10 years old, I used to see my dad reading a newspaper called al-Hayat (Life), it is an influential political and independent daily pan-Arab newspaper, and always he used to call me to sit near him so he could read to me some news. I think from that moment something toward writing and journalism was built in my head. As I progressed through my education it became clear what my strengths were and things progressed from there.
