The Syrian World Volume 05, Issue 09


Volume 5 Issue 09 of The Syrian World published May 1931. Ameen Rihani opens the issue with an article already previously published in Travel Magazine that discusses his journey from Bagdad to Basrah down the Tigris River. Following it is a poem titled "Queen Ulmana's Turquoise" by Dr. Salim Y. Alkazin, followed by yet another poem by Amin Beder, a tribute to Gibran titled "The Spirit of Gibran." Presented next is "The Case of The Syrian World," a concise presentation of different opinions surrounding the paper, before an article by a regular contributor of The Syrian World, Rev. W. A. Mansur. Mansur's article aims to inspire the Syrian community with his work discussing pride in the Syrian race. At the end of the issue before the next portion of the "Ali Zaibaq" series there are two works, each by Syrian children, on what their attitudes should be concerning their mothers. The issue closes with an update on the political developments in Syria and excerpts from the Arab press that highlight Syria and Syrians.
