Feroz Abbasi disliked the brash Australian who competed with him for the attention and favor of their al-Qaeda boss. He described his rival as "Al-Qaedah's 24 ct. [carat] Golden Boy" and claimed he'd said he wanted to rob and kill Jews back in Australia and crash an airplane into a building. Abbasi's resentful and deeply unflattering account of his Australian comrade, David Hicks, is contained in a 148-page memoir he wrote for anti-terrorism investigators while incarcerated in the U.S. military prison at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba.
