The Syrian World Volume 05, Issue 10


Volume 5 Issue 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 a number of religious figures in both communities have attempted to make amends by disregarding old prejudices and inviting tolerance. After a quatrain by Dr. Salim Y. Alkazin, The Syrian World makes the 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 to translate from Gibran 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, still a popular feature in Syrian-American homes. The issue concludes with the Reader's Forum, an update on political developments in Syria, and excerpts from the Arab press related to Syrians and Syria.
