The Syrian World Vol. 03 no. 07


Vol. 3 no. 07 of The Syrian World published January 1929. The first issue of the year begins with an article by Ameen Rihani discussing Arabia and its problems, an informative discussion on the current issues in the Middle East, specifically Syria and the nations surrounding it. As mentioned in the December issue there was a desire for Syrian-Americans to join Syrian-American societies. The next article is an update on this discussion that showcases a few of the societies in various parts of the U.S. a show of the collective unification of Syrian-Americans. Following this article there is a poem dedicated to the idea of the new Syrian-American Federations titled The New-Born Babe, by Edward B. Karam. Following it is yet another inclusion of The Sage of Washington Street, with a part III discussion of the marriage problem among Syrians (by A. Hakim). Yet another poem included in this issue is by Kahlil Gibran titled Defeat, a poem with a tone of resilience. The next story is a classic adopted from Arabic titled The Weaver and the Rose, which discusses Al-Ma'moun the 7th Abbasid Caliph. There is another work by Ameen Rihani that is a transcript of his lecture in London titled Arabia--An Unbiased Survey. The issue is concluded with the Reader's Forum, and excerpts from the Arab press.
