Title

The Syrian World Vol. 06 no. 04

Description

Vol. 6 no. 04 of The Syrian World published December 1931. This issue begins with an article by Hatib I. Katibah discussing Palestine and how exactly it became the small Syrian province lying at the intersection of three continents. Katibah breaks down exactly how this was possible through a succession of historic events. Following it is a poem by Alice Mokarzel titled the Christmas Altar, and like a number of other works featured in this issue it revolves around Christmas in some way. There is also another Gibran worked which follows hers titled The Great Occurrence, which speaks about the miraculous nature of Jesus Christ. The rest of the poetry in this issue that is edited by Barbara Young is also entirely Christmas related. After a discussion of current news, Edna K. Saloomey's short story titled Party for Aneesa is featured, and is followed by Book Reviews. The editor closes out the issue with a piece titled Peace and Good Will, Plus Faith no doubt owed to the time of year this issue was released. The issue officially concludes with excerpts from the Syrian press and an update on the political developments in Syria.
