About the
Southern
Federation
In 1931, The Southern
Federation of Syrian
Lebanese American Clubs
was founded to promote
devotion to America while
preserving our Syrian and
Lebanese heritage.
The goals -of the
Southern Federation are to
combine this devotion with
traditions of Syria and
Lebanon. These traditions
are based upon belief in the
importance of God and
family, a love of our
heritage, and the desire to
celebrate our illustrious
ancestors and the great
contributions that they have
made to mankind.
Over the past 75 years,
the Southern Federation of
Syrian Lebanese American
Clubs has grown to more
than 70 affiliated clubs in
18 states. Through the
Southern Federation
Foundations, over $60,000
in scholarships were
awarded this year to
deserving students. In
addition, the Foundation
contributes thousands of
dollars each year to
charitable causes.

Joshua 5:13: And it
came to pass, when
Joshua was by Jericho,
that he lifted up his eyes
and looked, and, behold,
there stood a man over
against him with his
sword drawn in his hand:
and Joshua went unto him,
and said unto him, Art
thou for us, or for our
adversaries? (14) And he
said, Nay; but as captain
of the .host of the LORD
am I now come. And
Joshua fell on his face to
the earth, and did worship,
and said unto him, What
saith my lord unto his
servant? (15) And the
captain of the LORD's
host said unto Joshua,
Loose thy shoe from off
thy foot; for the place
whereon thou standest is

holy. And Joshua did so.
6:1: Now Jericho was
straitly shut up because of
the children of Israel:
none went out, and none
came in. (2) And the
LORD said unto Joshua,
See, I have given into
thine hand Jericho, and
the king thereof, and the
mighty men of valour. (3)
And ye shall compass the
city, all ye men of war,
and go round about the
city once. Thus shalt thou

The Conquest of Jericho 4


Understanding
the Christian
East
A Historial
Perspective
Antioch was the first
headquarters of the
Church until St. Peter
moved to Rome. It
remained an important
center of Christianity for
several centuries.
Constantinople became
the most important and
powerful patriarchal seen,
for it was the capital of
the Byzantine and the
Roman worlds.
The Pope, the Bishop
of Rome, was Patriarch of
the West. He was the
Chief Bishop of the
Patriarchs, the first among
equals, because he was
the successor of St. Peter,
the first Bishop. It was his
special office to arbitrate
decisively everywhere in
ecclesiastical disputes.
However, in respect to


MORT AG E


The increasing tension
between 'The West' and
the 'Muslim World', was
addressed by Dato'Seri
Abdullah Haji Ahmad
Badawi, prime minister of
Malaysia, at the British-
based International
Institute of Strategic
Studies (IISS) in London
last month. Badawi's
address was opportune,
coming at a time of
national debate in Britain
over whether multi-
culturalism has led to the
isolation of British
Muslims in cultural
ghettos.
A recent poll found that
anti-western militancy
among young British
Muslims is double that of
their parents' generation,
with a majority of the
young saying they would
prefer to veil women and
live under Muslim
Shari'ah law instead of
British civil law.
Terms like 'the West,'
and the 'the Muslim
World' do not identify


legal entities, thus notions
such as 'Islamic-westerr
dialogue', or 'Islamic-
western conflict', become
fuzzy. However, Mr
Badawi's recipe foi
defusing tension b3
mending 'political' fences
and conducting a westerr
dialogue with Islam
needs carefu.
examination.
Naming the
Palestinian-Israeli dispute
as "the root cause o:
tension" between these
two worlds, Mr. Badaw
argued that solving the
conflict "would diminish
the need for violent
groups like Hizbullah o0
Hamas to function."
However, this
simplistic analysis misse,
certain crucial historical
facts. The Muslin-
Brotherhood Associatior
(MBA) is the great-
granddaddy of all the

he most beautiful and
,hotographed women of
he 20th century. Empress
)f Iran, and second wife
)f Shah Mohammad Reza
?ahlavi, she was born in
sfahan on 22 June, 1932.
daughterr of Khalil
3sfandiary-Bakhtiari,
ater Iranian ambassador
o West Germany, and
3va Karl (a German
-itizen born in Moscow),
;he was named after a
constellationn of seven
;tars, the Haft Peykar.
-ittle did she or her
parentss know that her
lame and beauty would
:apture the heart of a
'uture king and the
attention of some of
-ollywood's best known
film producers.
In the summer of 1950,
he shy young Soraya was
introduced to the Shah of
,ran, who had previously
)nly seen a photograph of
he teenage beauty. The
Shah, who was


constitutional king for
nearly nine years after
taking the oath on the eve
of his father's abdication
in 1941, had no particular
desire to be married
again, indeed he was
known as something of an
international playboy,
particularly after his
divorce from Egyptian-
born Princess Fawzia,
who had given him a
daughter, Shahnaz but no
male heir to the Peacock
Throne. The arranged
marriage of the Shah to
his Egyptian bride was
dictated by his father
Reza Shah for reasons of
state, not love. A bachelor
for many years following
his divorce, both the
Shah's family and his
government ministers
were becoming impatient.
However, the Shah's
growing feelings for
Soraya seemed to be very
different from anything
he had known with other
women. "One just had to
see them together"

revealed a close family
friend. "Soraya had a
combination of western
and Persian qualities in
her that seduced the
western-educated man the
young Shah had become."
Sooner rather than later,
the Shah was to court the
young lady and a genuine
romance was to grow
between the two.
Their engagement was
celebrated in October of
that year. A sudden illness
however nearly prevented
Soroya from attending her
own wedding. Unknown
to anyone at the time, it
was this very illness that
would cause her to be
infertile. Her inability to
nrovide a male L heir
made Soroya an
unacceptable wife for the
monarch and the divorce
was announced to the
Iranian people in 1958, by
a weeping Shah. The
former queen was given
and kept the title of Her
Imperial Highness the


Princess Soraya of Iran,
and her poignant situation
inspired French
songwriter Franqoise
Mallet-Jorris to write a
poem that later became a
hit song, Je Veux Pleurer
Comme Soraya (I Want to
Cry Like Soraya).
The years that followed
were to put the princess in
a situation which has
rarely been equalled in
the annals of royalty,
apart from perhaps
Britain's King Edward
VIII who abdicated his
throne to marry American
divorcee Wallis Simpson,
or in more recent years,
Princess Diana after her
divorce from the heir to
the British throne, Prince
Charles: all three became
members of the
international jet set by
virtue of their royal
connections.-
Courted by celebrities
and chased by paparazzi,

We Are Determined to
Prove that Nobody Does
it Better!
Downtown Houston is
among the top three
favorite locations in the
country to view a qth of
July Fireworks
extravaganza. So, it
makes sense to start the
party on that Wednesday,
July 4,2007. Our newest,
cutting-edge hotel, The
Hilton Americas in
Downtown Houston, will
be the site of the grand
affair, granting us special
room rates starting at $95
a night for single, double,
triple, & quad. Their
40,000 square foot
ballroom will certainly
eliminate the toe crushing
in those Dabke lines!
There will be special
events each day for all
ages. Enjoy the feel of
Las Vegas at our Casino


Night and lavish buffet,
with the opportunity to
win prizes, and end the
night with Arabic
dancing. Round up those
debutantes for a night to
remember. Our usual
Grand Banquet will be
transformed into a Gala!
There will be a variety
of music for all ages,
children & teen events, &
single mixers. Saturday
will host a "Talent
Review," inspired by the
accomplishments of one
of our own, the late, great
Cliff Antone, who was
instrumental in
transforming Austin,
Texas into the "Live
Music Capital of the
World." It is not a contest.
We just have a lot of
talent, especially with the
youth, and we will
provide the venue..

"I need to learn more,"
Tagelsir said. "I want to be

Since June, Tagelsir's

priests shall bear before
the ark seven trumpets of
rams' horns: and the
seventh day ye shall
compass the city seven
times, and the priests shall
blow with the trumpets.
(5) And it shall come to

horn, and when ye hear

all the people shall shout

And Joshua the son of

let seven priests bear

(16) And it came to

when the priests blew with

unto the people, Shout, for

But all the silver, and

the subsequent trials,
predated the birth of
Israel by two decades.
And, more recently,
Israel's withdrawal from
Lebanon, many would
Argue, did not turn
Hizbullah towards
peaceful democratic
practice, but emboldened
the organization to
stockpile arms, seek to
change the nature of the
Lebanese state and start a
war, backed by anti-
western forces in Iran.
'Dialogue with Islam'
is a course unwisely taken
by some western
democracies since it
undermines democracy


itself and delays the
reform and liberalization
that is dreamt of by the
silent peaceful majority in
Muslim nations.
"If someone like Karin
Hughes (the White House
official in charge of
dialogue with the Muslim
world) embraces a
'moderate' high-profile
woman in the Gulf, the
latter is likely to lose
credibility," explained Dr.
John Chipman, director of
the IISS. Liberal
intellectuals and
reformists in the Middle
East region are painted as
'western stooges and /or
fifth columnists' by
powerful well-funded
Islamist propaganda
machines who cite an
international high profile
in the western media as a
proof of 'treachery'.

through a lack of
proper management and
the absence of
competition.
Another Nasser era
tenet that of
guaranteeing jobs for
high-school and college
graduates bloated
Egypt's bureaucracy
while still falling
dramatically short of
supplying sufficient
employment. By 1981,
job applicants had already
outnumbered government
positions by five to one.
Empowering the
private sector, which real
issue is one of power, and
the NDP's reluctance-
towards letting go is
perhaps most apparent in
its treatment of workers.


Trade unions have long
been co-opted by the
state, effectively denying
proper workers'
representation in
negotiations regarding
their welfare. Strikes,
while technically legal,
are in fact prohibited not
only by Egypt's
Emergency Law, but by
an authoritarian
government that may use
force to disperse them.
The parliamentary
debates surrounding the
current constitutional
revisions have steered
mostly clear of labour-
related issues. A handful
of independent members
of parliament have
nevertheless argued that
Egypt's bid for a
competitive open market
will faltefmi the absence
of workers' rights,

especially the right to

MP, "You can't do it
halfway but you can't do
it all of a sudden either".
This ambivalence may be
costly, since workers'
productivity under
current conditions is far
from optimal. Moreover,
economic reform has yet
to deliver on its promise
of a higher standard of

"Thanks to the

to death; and if you

Whether it is Dr.
Fandy, Dr. Chipman, or
"Muslim Members of the
British Parliament like
Khalid Mahmood, Labour
MP for Birmingham Perry
Barr, most have serious
reservations about British
and other western
governments conducting
official dialogue with
unelected, non-
representative Islamist
groups, self-appointed
'Muslim leaders', or
religious institutions
which might have some
moral authority since, as
one observer pointed out,


neither the Archbishop of
Canterbury nor the Grand
Sheikh of Al-Azhar is a
democratically elected
representative of the
British taxpayer.
Mr. Mahmood
complains about the
media giving hardly any
airtime to elected MPs
and more than 300 local
councilors who represent
Muslim constituents,
compared with the airtime
given to a vocal minority
of self-appointed radical
Islamists.

Soroya
(continued from page 14)
revealed a close family
friend. "Soraya had a
combination of western
and Persian qualities in
her that seduced the
western-educated man the
young Shah had become."
Sooner rather than later,
the Shah was to court the
young lady and a genuine
romance was to grow
between the two.
Their engagement was
celebrated in October of
that year. A sudden illness
however nearly prevented
Soroya from attending
her own wedding.
Unknown to anyone at
the time, it was this very
illness that would cause
her to be infertile. Her
inability to nrovide a
male L heir made
Soroya an unacceptable
wife for the monarch and
the divorce was
announced to the Iranian-
people in 1958, by a
weeping Shah. The.


former queen was given
and kept the title of Her
Imperial Highness the
Princess Soraya of Iran,
and her poignant situation
inspired French
songwriter Franqoise
Mallet-Jorris to write a
poem that later became a
hit song, Je Veux Pleurer
Comme Soraya (I Want to
Cry Like Soraya).
The years that
followed were to put the
princess in a situation
which has. rarely been
equalled in the annals of
royalty, apart from
perhaps Britain's King
Edward VIII who
abdicated his throne to
marry American divorcee
Wallis Simpson, or in
more recent years,
Princess Diana after her
divorce from the heir to
the British throne, Prince
Charles: all three became
members of the
international jet set by
virtue of their royal
connections.

Jericho
(continued from page 15)
without the camp -of
Israel.
(24) And they burnt the
city with fire, and all that
was therein; only the
silver, and the gold, and
the vessels of brass and of
iron, they put into the
treasury of the house of
the LORD. (25) And
Joshua saved Rahab the
harlot alive, and her
father's household, and all
that she had; and she
dwelleth in Israel even
unto this day; because she
hid the messengers, which
Joshua sent to spy out
Jericho. (27) So the
LORD was with Joshua;
and his fame was noised
throughout all the country.
In Isaiah 53 we read
that the Son of God was
despised, oppressed,
afflicted, wounded for our
transgressions. He was
brought as a lamb to the'
slaughter. He opened not
HIS mouth and God was


pleased to bruise Him. He
was rejected of men,
crucified, and died in our
place. He rose again on
the 3rd day, but was
accepted to God. Phil. 2:9
"Wherefore God also hath
highly exalted him, and
given him a name which
is above every name: (10)
That at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow, of
things in heaven, and
things in earth, and things
under the earth; (11) And
that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord, to the glory of
God the Father."
Put your trust in the
living and only savior and
have eternal life. Your
sins will be forgiven.
Pray this prayer now:
Lord Jesus be merciful to
me, a sinner. Forgive my
sins, enter my heart and
change my life. I trust
you. Thank you for saving
my soul.
His servant,
Dr. Fred Massabni

straight answers to their
questions.
On the international
level, Dr. Fandy
recommends that
diplomats from all
western governments
should limit their official
dialogue to contact with
legal entities such as
states and governments,


avoiding building
associations with radical
Islamists. Otherwise, he
noted, they undermine the
whole process of
international law and
democracy, the very
procedure western nations
have been trying so'hard
to promote in the Middle
East and beyond.
