He is of Aramean ethnicity. As an Aramean celebrity he also is the Ambassador of the Syriac Aramean Federation in the Netherlands and frequently makes appearances in Dutch media and publishes open letters to the Dutch Ministers to promote the Aramean cause in their homeland (Syria, Turkey and Iraq).
He received his first cap in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification tournament for Syria against Kuwait on June 8, 2008, thereby eliminating the possibility of playing for Belgium ever again although just one month earlier he was on a training camp with the Belgian national football team under 23s.
