Description

Vol. 5 no. 07 of The Syrian World published March 1931. The issue opens with Ameen Rihani's article titled The Passion Play of the East, in which he describes his journey to the tomb of Al-Husain during the time of annual pilgrimage. The article that appears next, informs the reader of the inception and growth of the Boy Scout movement in Southern Lebanon, as well as the influence the movement had in the lives of Lebanese youth. Michael Haddad is featured after a poem by Thomas Asa, where he discusses Arab literature and philosophy in a speech he delivered to his own college Columbia University. Salloum Mokarzel also continues his description of his journey through Jebel-Druze, where he takes the reader to Roman ruins and describes locals of the area. Ali Zaibaq is also continued in this issue, before a most important article discussing the possible discovery and exhibition of what is believed to be The Holy Grail. The issue ends with an article discussing the revival of Pan-Islamism, the Political Developments in Syria, and excerpts from the Arab press surrounding Syria and Syrians.
