The Syrian World Volume 03, Issue 07


Volume 3 Issue 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 concludes with the Reader's Forum and excerpts from the Arab press.
