The Syrian World Vol. 05 no. 10


Vol. 5 no. 10 of The Syrian World published June 1931. The final issue of the fifth volume opens with an article by none other than Rev. W. A. Mansur. He begins the issue by talking about the tensions between Christians and Moslems. He specifically references the fact that there are a number of religious figures in both communities that have attempted to make amends by disregarding old prejudices and inviting tolerance in. Rev. W. A. Mansur in his article is essentially making that same proclamation as a Christian. After a quatrain by Dr. Salim Y. Alkazin, The Syrian World makes an editorial announcement to continue its publication. Following the discussion of Palmyra by Wadad J. Kh. Mackdicy, and a piece by J.D. Carlyle, a work of the late Kahlil Gibran is featured as translated by Andrew Ghareeb, who received permission from Gibran personally before his passing. Before a continuation of Ali Zaibaq there is an article by J.A. Barrakett discussing the American pastime of Backgammon, a game that originated in the ancient East, a still popular addition to Syrian-American homes. The issue then concludes with the Reader's Forum, an update on the Political Developments in Syria, and excerpts from the Arab press related to Syrians and Syria.
