Mr. Fathi was born to a prominent Jewish family in Baghdad, Iraq,on May 8, 1938. At age 10 he escaped from Baghdad through Iran and eventually reached the state of Israel. There he lived from 1948 to 1958, first in Kibbutz Ma'Anit, then in Rehovoth, Israel. He enrolled at the Israel Airforce Academy of Aeronautics, a 4-year program, where he earned his high-school diploma and learned a profession. He began writing a diary at age 11.
In 1958 he left Israel and worked his way to Brazil, were he lived for two years and worked as electrician. Within six months Mr. Fathi had his own multi-employee business. In 1960 he came to the US on a student exchange visa to Columbia University. In the evenings, he attended the New School of Social Studies for American history and public speaking and studied sculpture at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. After 8 months in New York, that same year, Mr. Fathi volunteered to serve in the US Army for three years; having been promised a college education and US citizenship at the conclusion of his duties. After Basic training in Fort Benning, Georgia, he was sent to helicopter school at Fort Bragg, NC and had enrolled at the University Of Virginia.

There he remained for a period of 16 months as chief electrical technician with the 1st Cavalry Division, 15th Aviation Company.
