To Serve Second
Term As Orlando
President."
Dr. Fouad Hajjar was
installed as president of
the Syrian Lebanese
American Club of
Orlando for a second
term.
It was a year that
finally brought us closer
to the start of the
construction of the new
building as was promised
when we sold the property
on Canton and Mills.
Instead of one and a half
acres the property will be
almost four acres, and m
any future plans will
include the avail ability of
the club to the members
much. more readily than
ever before.
Gary Skaff was re-
elected as the first vice
president. Skaff's
contributions to the
organization have been
valuable, in constantly
creating' social events and
his untiring efforts in
leading the building
committee these past
years. It seems SLAC has
future leaders for the next
few years.

The Destiny of
the Church
1. The church will not
convert the world.
According to scriptures
the church is not to win
the whole world to Christ
not to rise to a position of
world influence in social,
economic and political
life.
2. The church will be
united to Christ. The
figure of the church as a
virgin has been used
previously 2 Cor: 11:2
and in Revelation. Her
union with Christ at the
marriage of the Lamb is
foretold. This can only
mean that she will be
brought unto the most
intimate relation with
Christ). The idea of
fellowship and of co-
ownership are involved in
the conception Rom
8:16,17,


Rev. Fred Massabni
3. The church will
reign with Christ as his
bride. She will be at His
side and share in His
authority in His vorld-
wide kingdom on earth.
Rev 1:6 She will even
have a part in judging of
angels I Cor:6:3. Having
suffered with Him in the
day of His glorification 11
Tim 2. it is said that His
servant shall reign forever
and ever Rev 22:5. Not

The Maronites
An Aramaic
Antiochian
Catholic
Church
Who are the
Maronites? By way of
introduction, these
Catholics of Near Eastern
origin grew out of the
ancient Aramaic
Antochian Church.
Maronite Catholics are
the followers of St.
Maron, a monk of the
fourth century, and
gathered under his
leadership in northern
Syria as a particular
Church. Like each.of the
Eastern Christian
Churches, the Maronite
Church is a particular
Church having its own
distinctive liturgy,
spirituality, and system of,
government while
adhering to the one true
creed. The Eastern


By Brother John
Samaha, S.M.
Churches are not
identified simply by
special liturgical rites.
The Maronite heritage
and traditions were
shaped by the Apostolic
See of Antioch,
established by St. Peter,
its first bishop. From this
ancient center, St. Paul
launched the
evangelization of the
Gentiles. It was at
Antioch that Christ's
followers were first called
Christians.
The Maronite Liturgy is
modeled oil the original,
monastic liturgy formed at

Parents-
Children
Relationship
Becoming parents is a
feeling that can only be
enjoyed by the parents.
There is no way to
describe it. Parents yearn,
aspire and pray to have
children. Thus parents
Sand children are very
uniquely and closely
related together. With
prayers, parents bring up
their children in
wholesome family
atmosphere. The
relationship is based on
intimate and natural love.
But Islam signifies duties
of parents towards their
children and the
obligation of children
towards their parents.
Some of such instructions
in the Holy Quran as well
as Ahadees that is Sayings
.of the Holy Prophet of
Islam f are cited here.
HOLY QURAN:
1. "Wealth and children
are the ornaments of the
life of this world." (18:47)
2. "0 ye who Believe!


By Dr. Qazi Muhammad
Barkatullah
Let not your wealth and
your children divert you
from the remembrance of
Allah, and those who do
so, it is they who are the
losers." (63:10)
3. "0 ye who Believe!
Surely among your wives
and your children are some
who are your enemies so
beware of them. Verily,
your wealth and children
are but a trial; but with
Allah is an immense
reward." (64:15-16)
4. "Know that the life
of this world is only a
sport and a pastime and an
adornment, and a source
of boasting among
yourselves, and of rivalry
in multiplying riches and
children." (57:21)
5. "Neither your ties of
kindred nor your children
will avail you aught on

Muslims.
"We are concerned
about the ShVites outside
Kuwait and we are
worried about contacts
between the Shi'ites here
and those outside
Kuwait," said
Mohammed Tabtabai, the
dean of the College of
Sharia and Islamic
Studies at Kuwait
University.
Shi'ites make-up about
one third of Kuwait's
913,000 citizens.
Compared to the suffering
of their fellow Shi'ites in
Iraq :under Saddam
Hussein's brutal regime,
the Shi'ites of Kuwait
have fared relatively well.
But they remain politically
under-represented with


only five MPs in the
50-seat parliament.
Mohammed Abu Al
Hasan, the only Shi'ite
minister in the Kuwaiti
government, was
compelled to resign in
January under pressure
from Sunni Islamist MPs.
"When we speak to the
government, they say
there are no Sunnis and
Shi'ites just citizens. But
we say there must be a
balance," said Abdel-
Mohsen Jammal, one of
the five Shi'ite Mps. "I
think now after the
liberation of Iraq, the
Kuwaiti government will
change its behaviour and
start bringing in more
Shi'ites."

Kuwait Shi'ites
(continued from page 7)
Indeed, the Kuwaiti
government has fulfilled
some long standing
Shi'ite requests, such as
permitting a Shi'ite
supreme court to handle
personal status issues and
family law cases and
approving the
establishment of a Shi'ite
waqf, an agency to
administer religious
donations.
But there is no Shi'ite
hawza, or religious
college, to train Shi'ite
imams, forcing students to
travel to Iraq or Iran.
'The Ministry ofAwqaf
and Islamic Affairs is
responsible for overseeing
religious affairs in
Kuwait. For Sayyed At
Mery and other Shi'ites,
the problem is that the
ministry is dominated by
Sunni Islam. Shi'ites
blame the ministry for the
scarcity of Shi'ite
mosques. There are only
around 30 Shi'ite
mosques in Kuwait,
compared with some
1,200 Sunni mosques.
Furthermore, while

proliferate, the
publication of Shi"ite
religious books tends to
be barely tolerated.
"The Shi'ites in
Kuwait have lived with
the Sunnis for many years
with no problems,"
Sayyed At Mery said.
"Our problem is with the
extremists. I wish to ask
the US government to
pressure our government
to reduce and destroy this
ideology because they are
killers and accept no
opinion but their own."
The Ministry of Awqaf
and Islamic Affairs admits
that the Shi'ites were
historically marginalised,
but insists that is no
longer true.
Many Sunnis in the
Gulf feet uneasy about
Iran and its potential
influence on their own
Shi'ite communities.
In December, Jordan's
King Abdullah II
predicted that the Shi'ite
empowerment in
Iraq could mark the
beginning of a "Shi'ite
crescent" linking Shi'ite
communities from Iran in
the cast to Lebanon in the
west.

Although King
Abdullah later said his
comments were
misinterpreted, the
popular perception is that
the Jordanian monarch
was merely expressing
what many Sunnis
believe. Diplomatic
relations between Jordan
and Iraq soured in the
wake of a suicide
bombing in Hilla on 28
February in which 125
Iraqis perished; the worst
single attack since the
downfall of Saddam
Hussein two years ago.
'the bombing quickly
took on a sectarian slant
when it was discovered
that the perpetrator was a
Jordanian Sunni and his
target was a Shi'ite town.
Enraged Iraqi Shi'ites
attacked the Jordanian
embassy in Baghdad and
the ambassadors of both
countries were briefly
recalled.
Although the Middle
East is dominated
politically and
demographically by the
Sunnis, most countries
have significant Shi'ite
populations. Shi'ites
comprise the largest


communities in Iran, Iraq
and Lebanon. Syria is
ruled by the Alawites, a
splinter sect of Shi'ism.
There is a strong Shi'ite
presence around the rim
of the Gulf, in Kuwait,
Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
Still, the fervent
speculation of a nascent
"Shi'ite crescent" being
developed by Iran perhaps
more reflects Sunni
concerns rather than
Shi'ite intentions.
"'There were days of
very public handwringing
after King Abdullah's
comments about a Shi'ite
crescent," said a western
diplomat in Kuwait. "The
Kuwaitis do pay close
attention to the Shi'ite
developments in Iraq."
During the Shi'ite holy
month of Muharrem
commemorated in
February, the Kuwaiti
authorities tightened
security due to concerns
about Islamic militants.
As a staunch ally of the
United States and host to
some 25,000 American
troops, Kuwait represents
a tempting target to
Islamic militants and

Shadyac
(continued from page 9)
are all about, you'll be
successful."
FIRST STEPS
Shadyac has known his
share of success as the
head ofALSAC, a post he
will retire from June 30.
During his tenure.,
hospital needs increased
dramatically, forcing
ALSAC to raise the
money necessary to fulfill
those needs and to fuel a
billiondollar expansion.
When Shadyac became
CEO in 1992, fund-
raising revenues hovered
around $100 million. In
fiscal year 2005, revenues
are expected to reach
$450 million. Today, the
hospital costs more than
$1 million a day to
operate, a far cry from the
$250,000 a year that
Shadyac, Danny Thomas
and the original ALSAC
members had to raise in
1962.
"When I took over as


CEO, we had a few
dollars in the bank, and
we were paying off all our
bills. We began a
concerted effort to expand
our fund-raising,"
Shadyac said. To do that,
the new CEO began
making a series of
changes that would reap
benefits for the
organization.
He created the Gift
Planning department to
work with donors who are
interested in leaving
estates or planned gifts to
St. Jude. "We have so

investment should
provide more than just
aesthetic profit. "Of
course nothing is certain
but we are seeing some
good returns," he
observed. with a wry
smile.
There are certain rules
to follow explains
MacDermot, who has
clients worldwide. "For
someone with little or no
experience of the market I
would suggest they


should take good advice:
Go to a reputable dealer
who stands behind what
they are selling. At the
Mathaf Gallery, 'for
example, we. issue
certificates of authenticity
and a guarantee with
every original painting we
sell. We descr ibe the
condition of the painting
so, for example, if the
signature of the artist has
been strengthened, we
would record this.
Collectors from all over
the world, from Europe to
the Far East, the United
States and of course in the
Arab- world have, we
hope, benefited from our
advice and assistance."

British -born 19th
century artist and
traveller, David Roberts.
In 1838, amid growing
interest in the Middle East
and Islamic architecture,
Roberts embarked upon
an extensive tour of the
region. On his return to
London, he handed over
some 264 watercolour
sketches to be
lithographed and
published in six volumes:


Views in the Holy Land,
Syria, Idumea, Arabia,
Egypt and Nubia. The
lithographs were
described at the time as
'one of the most valuable
publications of our day',
and were the first records
of the Holy Land to be
presented to the British
public. A large selection
of these scenes will be on
show at the- Mathaf

become directly involved
in a Formula One racing
team is seen as the
Emirate's latest strategy
to develop its tourism and
commerce sectors in title
with its vision to become
the'Monaco of the Middle
Fast.' The ultimate aim is
to move the economy
away from its heavy
reliance on oil revenues.
By purchasing an
existing team, rather than
building one from scratch,
GPI has avoided the
necessity of paying to the
motorsport's governing
body, Formula One
Achninistration, a $50m
bond that new entrants are
obliged to raise under the
sport's existing rules.
The Jordan team was
founded in 1990 by Eddie
Jordan one of the most
colourful and outspoken
personalities on the
Formula One scene. The
team has had a difficult


2004 season as have all
the teams who have
struggled with the
seemingly invincible
supremacy of the Ferrari
team and its driver
Michael Schumacher -
although Jordan has
scored four Grand Prix
Victories over the
years, including the
Brazilian Grand Prix last
season.
The deal values the
Jordan team at some
$74m roughly
equivalent to its 2003
turnover on which it made
a profit of well over $1m.
Under the terms of the
deal, Eddie Jordan's
50.1% stake will be
diluted to some 15%.
Interestingly, Jordan was
the first Formula One
team to acquire equity
investment from a
financial institution when
Warburg Pincus
purchased a minority
stake in the team in
November 1998. Warburg

Pincuss share was bought
in October 2003 by a
consortium of Irish
investors, Merrion
Capital, which sunk
$15.6m into the team to
take a 49,9% stake.
Merrion Capital will more
than double its money in
selling to GPI.
The deal includes the
purchase of the Jordan
team's factory at Britain's
Grand Prix race track,
Silverstone, as well as a
wind tunnet at the nearby
town of Brackley, located
five miles away from the
circuit. The Jordan factory
alongside Silverstone
employs about 200 people
who have been assured by
GPI that their jobs are
secure.
There is no intention of
picking up the team and
moving it luck, stock and
barrel to Dubai," a GPI
spokesman said, adding
that "Europe'is the base
for Formula One and,
while the team will be


headquartered in Dubai, it
is very much go
ing to keep its
European base". The new
owners are expected to
invest in the building of a
new factory that has been
planned for some time.
However, the team will be
rebranded as Team Dubai
Fl and relaunched with a
new image in rime for the
2005 Grand Prix season.
Eddie Jordan, as well
as retaining a minority
stake in the new team, is
believed to have agreed to
remain as learn manager
for the next couple of
Grand Prix seasons whilst
a successor is groomed.
He will thereafter assume
an ambassadorial role for
Team Dubai F1.
Formula One is the
most televised sporting
championship in the
world, In 1998, the sports
governing body
developed what it calls

Turning to the
One of the first initiatives
of King Abdul Aziz Bin
Abdul Rahman Al-Saud,
following the establishment
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in
1932, was to improve
healthcare facilities in the
country and to offer free
medical care to citizens and
the pilgrims who come to
Saudi Arabia to visit the
Islamic holy cities.
This was implemented by
ensuring each administrative
region in the kingdom set up
its own medical facilities.
Health in the country
improved substantially and
once-endemic diseases such
as malaria and smallpox
were virtually eradicated, the
infant mortality rate was
drastically reduced and life
expectancy increased
markedly. In 1970 the
Government introduced the
first of the five-year
Development Plans.
It was on the basis of
these plans that the Saudi
healthcare system underwent
dramatic improvement in
both quality and number of
healthcare facilities.
The continual upgrading
of medical technology has
run concurrent with the
expansion of the healthcare
services network. In a move
to relieve the financial
burden on the state for the
provision of healthcare, a


Private Sector
number of initiatives were
introduced at this time to
provide incentives to the
private sector to develop
healthcare facilities around
the country.
The move was successful,
particularly in cities such as
Jeddah, whose population
was growing fast and which
sees a great number of
pilgrims passing annually
through the city on their way
to the holy cities of Makkah
and Madinah.
This is where now large
hospital groups, such as
Saudi German Hospitals
Group, Dr .S Fakeeh
Hospital, Dr Bakhsh
Hospital Group and Magrabi
Hospital and Centres began
as relatively modest
operations. Overall, this has
enabled Saudi Arabians to
have access to a network of
thousands of hospitals and
clinics across the kingdom.
They are no longer obligated
to travel abroad to obtain
specialised medical
treatment.
Advanced surgical
procedures such as open
heart surgery and organ
transplants are routinely
performed in Saudi
hospitals. Several Saudi
hospitals rank with the best
in the world and serve as
models of healthcare to the
Middle East, such as the

enormous, superbly

staffed King Faisal Specialist
Hospital and Research
Centre (KFSH&RC) in
Riyadh which has
accreditation from the highly
regarded United Statesbased
Joint Commission
International (JCI).
Legal provisions
In March 1992 the
Constitution of Saudi Arabia
was adopted and
promulgated by Crown
Decree. According to the
Constitution the State is to
guarantee the rights of the
citizen and his family in the
event of emergency, disease,
disability, and old age; it is to
support the social security
system and encourage legal
and natural persons to
contribute to charitable acts
(Sec. 27). The State is to take
charge of all aspects of
health and ensure that
healthcare is provided for all
citizens (Sec. 31).
Health expenditure
The Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia has invested heavily
in healthcare. Facilities
generally have been financed
directly by the government
through the establishment of
hospitals and clinics and by
generous incentive and
support programmes to
privatesector institutions.
Nonetheless, budgetary
constraints, the rapidly
growing population and new


medical technologies are
causing the Government to
rethink how healthcare will
be financed. According to
(2001) figures from the
WHO, Government spent
4.6% of GDP on healthcare.
Key medical institutions
If the health of a nation
can be determined by the
easy access to and quality
of healthcare available to its
people then the kingdom of
Saudi Arabia must surely
rank among the best in the
world. The state has spared
no expense in providing
free access to quality
healthcare to all Saudi
nationals, as well as
pilgrims to the Islamic holy
cities and foreign workers
residing in the kingdom.
Middle East Health visited
the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia in April to speak to
healthcare practitioners,
review key medical
institutions and catch up on
progress made since our
previous visit in May last
year.
Although we only visited
medical facilities in the
Riyadh and Jeddah (the first
and second cities) they are
by no means the only major
centres in the kingdom.
Others include Dammam in
the east, the Holy Cities of
Makkah and Madinah. In the
northwest is Tabouk, Hail in
the north and Al- Ahsa in the
southeast.
