Hospital, received the
Kappa Alpha Psi
Fraternity Inc.
Humanitarian Award
bestowed posthumously
to her father, Danny
Thomas, during the
fraternity's 78th Grand
Chapter meeting in
Minneapolis.


Danny Thomas was
chosen for the award
because of his
commitment to serve the
disadvantaged and for his
vision to open an
inclusive hospital
dedicated to research and
treatment of children with
life-threatening diseases.
Other awardees for 2007
included William

Forging Stronger Ties
Across the Med


Just five years ago,
relations between
Morocco and Spain
were dangerously
precarious. The long-
running dispute over the
fate of the Western
Sahara seemed to
prevent constructive
dialogue on a range af
other issues and the
argument over the
sovereignty of a
Mediterranean islet


threatened to lead to
conflict. Military forces
from both sides left the
rocky autcrop known as
Leila in Morocco and
Perejil in Spain but

Jabour in Concert


We were fortunate to
have had the renowned
Arabic singer;
"JABOUR" perform for
three nights in a row at
the Houston Convention.
If you have never had the
pleasure of hearing his
voice, you missed a treat.


In addition, he sang with
the TRANS ARABIAN
BAND. Their sounds
made you feel as though
you were on the
Mediterranean shores
of Lebanon. This was one
convention you just did
not want to miss!


Egypt's late June

elections left the
composition of the
country's upper house
of parliament with,
unsurprisingly, a very

even those

candidates who would
previously have
expected to win did so.
It seems that Egyptian
authorities have
virtually given up,
even the pretence of
holding free or fair
electoral contests.
The presence of the
264-member Shoura
Council (Consultative
Council) only dates
back to 1980 when it
was created under


Articl 196 of the
constitution .
According to the
articles relating to the
composition of the
Council, one third of
its members are
directly appointed by
the president, with
elections for the
remaining two-thirds
non-appointed
members held in two
stages, which are
always separated by a
gap of three years.
The legislative
powers of the Shoura
Council remain
limited, with the
country's main
legislative body, the

Assembly retaining

Mrs. Lily Khuri of Houston,
Texas Raises Funds For
Hadanet al Tufl


With 'great dedication
and persistence, Lily
Khuri of Houston raised
over $21,000 for Hadanet
al-Tufl, a needy
orphanage in Zahle,
Lebanon. A major portion
of the donation was
contributed by Wilma
Streaker in memory of her
late son, Mark Streaker.
Hadanet al-Tufl (the name
translates as "infant
welfare society") is a
private charity that
employs Melkite
Basiliennes nuns from the
town of Choueirite to
perform its mission. The
orphanage received
support from USAID last
year, and a grant from the
government of Lebanon
has supplied about a third
of its annual budget for


this fiscal year. Sources
informed Fr. Marwan
Tabet, Secretary General
of Catholic Schools in
Lebanon, that the
orphanage is partially
reliant upon daily
donations of benefactors
and will be greatly
assisted by the efforts of
Mrs. Khuri.
Aside from its work
raising scholarships,
promoting our heritage,
and selecting
organizations for
charitable donations, the
Southern Federation
Foundation assists
Southern Federation clubs
and members in
conducting charitable
activities. In its capacity
as a non-profit charitable

The Lord is a Consuming Fire


Let us read Job
Chapter 4 1 : 1,19-2 1,3
1,32
Canst thou draw out
leviathan with an hook?
or his tongue with a cord
which thou lettest down?
Out of his mouth go
burning lamps, and sparks
of fire leap out. Out of his
nostrils goeth smoke, as
out of a seething pot or
caldron. His breath
kindleth coals, and a
flame goeth out of his
mouth. He maketh the
deep to boil like a pot: he
maketh the sea like a pot
of ointment. He maketh a
path to shine after him,
one would think the deep
to be hoary. Upon earth
there is not his like, who
is made without fear. He
beholdeth all high things:
he is a king over all the
children of pride.
If this creature can be
mighty, how much more
his creator! Is God a
machine? Who knows,


(


Rev. Fred Massabni
but how can smoke goes
out of his nostrils, and fire
from his mouth to destroy
the enemies around
Jerusalem? Once I
mentioned on my
Television show asking,
"is the power of Atom in
Christ?" That before His
feet touches Mt. Olive the
mountain melt.
Read Zechariah 14:4
"And his feet shall stand
in that day upon the
mount of Olives, which is
before Jerusalem on the
east, and the mount of
Olives shall cleave in the
midst thereof toward the
east and toward the west,

The Acts of the
Apostles gives us three
different stories of Paul's
conversion. We find the
episode on the road to
Damascus in chapter 9,
and the others in chapters
22 and 26 recall the
incident. But these are
Luke's accounts of Paul.
Only once does Paul
write about what
happened to him, and this
is recorded in Galatians 1.
Paul speaks of his call
from God. He doesn't use
the word "conversion,"
but speaks of his "call."
Paul is unaware of
Luke's description, and
Paul makes no mention of
an incident on the road to
Damascus.
"Mainly, Paul recounts
his call because he is
insisting that he is an
apostle, not from human
beings nor through a

Samaha, S.M.
human being, but through
Jesus Christ and God the
Father who raised him
from the dead (Gal 1:1).
Some people were
denying that Paul is an
apostle. Paul insists that
he is, and struggled to be
recognized on the same
level as the twelve
apostles.
Paul's letters have
special significance
because they were written
before the gospels. He

YOURS


I hope that you have
been enjoying your
summer. Things have
slowed down -just a bit -
since the 50th
anniversary celebration.
However, our
fundraising activities
continue to grow.
In July we reactivated
our National Sports
Council. I am proud to
announce that the
council will be chaired
by Pat Summerall and
Steve Ehrhart. A number
of national sports and
broadcast celebrities
attended our meetings to
plan for their upcoming
events.
Marlo Thomas and I
recently attended the
national convention of


Kappa Alpha Psi in
Minneapolis. Mario
received the Kappa
Alpha Psi Humanitarian
Award on behalf of her
father, Danny Thomas.
The next day I spoke to
the group's general
assembly and received a
check for $100,000 and
a commitment to raise
$500,000 over the next
year.
Our Chair, Joyce
Aboussie, was the
keynote speaker at the
Epsilon Sigma Alpha
convention in Seattle.
The response to Joyce's
message was
outstanding. We thank
Joyce for delivering

While Egypt has
officially been a
democracy since 1953,
many now regard the
Arab world's most
populous nation as an
autocratic regime. The
popular view of the
country as a major,
sun-drenched tourist
destination for
Europeans does not in
any way alter the
reality of the country's
political situation. Nor
is it helped by the US,
its most important
foreign backer,
ignoring the situation
while the country
remains a key ally in
the so-called
war on terror".
The various
complaints from
voters and observers
on the day of the


election were too
widespread and too
numerous to be written
off as the whining of
an ineffectual and
beaten opposition.
Beating the opposition
was, coincidentally,
just one of the
complaints levelled
against the authorities
on the day.
Violence aside,
there were widespread
reports of
intimidation, stuffed
ballot boxes in
advance of polling
stations opening,
access to polling
stations being blocked
by lines of riot police,
Egyptian and foreign
election monitors alike
refused entry to these
same stations as well
as them being closed

closing time.

wanted to accomplish his

Bachara's job

he received his

Then who is the Lord
Jesus is really that we
must put our trust in him
before to go to hell
unaware. Psalm 18:6- 10
"In my distress I called
upon the LORD, and
cried unto my God: he
heard my voice out of his


temple, and my cry came
before him, even into his
ears. Then the earth shook
and trembled; the
foundations also of the
hills moved and were
shaken, because he was
wroth. There went up a
smoke out of his nostrils,
and fire out of his mouth
devoured: coals were
kindled by it. He bowed
the heavens also, and
came down: and darkness
was under his feet. And he
rode upon a cherub, and
did fly: yea, he did fly
upon the wings of the
wind. He brought me
forth also into a large
place; he delivered me,
because he delighted in
me. The LORD rewarded
me according to my
righteousness; according
to the cleanness of my
hands hath he


recompensed me. For I
have kept the ways of the
LORD, and have not
wickedly departed from
my God."
We read in Daniel

thrones were cast down,
and the Ancient of days
did sit, whose garment
was white as snow, and
the hair of his head like
the pure wool: his throne
was like the fiery flame,
and his wheels as burning
fire. A fiery stream issued
and came forth from
before him: thousand
thousands ministered unto
him, and ten thousand
times ten thousand stood
before him: the judgment
was set, and the books
were opened. Zach:14:

Paul
(continued from page 3)
gave us an interpretation
of Christ before the early
Church had recorded the
story of Christ The
letters that most
scholarsaqrce were
written by Paul himself.
1 Thessalonians
Galatians, P hilippians 1
and 2 Corinthians,
Romans, and Philemon
were written between 51
and 58 A.D. The earliest
gospel. Mark. was written
about 65 A.D.
Our earliest portrayal
of Jesus of Nazareth,
then, is given us by Paul.
For this reason, Paul is the
first theologian of the
Christian faith.
Paul's theological
vocabulary
In Romans 9:5 Paul t a
1 k s about t h e Messiah
according to the flesh.
Naturally he means his
human descent from
David as David's
progreny.


2993 PIED
@ PH
(In Piedmont Corn
Atla


Paul also talks about
the flesh in opposition to
the spirit. He does not
mean the Holy Spirit, but
the characteristics of the
human being that at times
he calls the f lesh and at
other times the spirit. Paul
does not work with the
Greek or Roman idea of
body and soul. He regards
the human being as a unit.
In referring to the human
being as flesh or spirit o r
mind, he is mentioning
,different aspects of a
composite which he does
not separate in to parts.
When Paul refers to the
human being as flesh, he
means humanity's earth-
orien tedtendencies.
When he talks about the
human spirit, he means
that aspect of the human
being's opennessto God
and God's influence.
When he refers to the
human being a s heart, he
means the emotive and
affectionate aspect of the!
person.

We held our annual
Collegiate Seminar in
Memphis, Term., with
almost 700 students
from across the country
attending. These
students direct the Up

other college programs
for ALSAC/St. Jude. I
want to thank the
ALSAC staff for putting
together this Collegiate

I attended the
National Auctioneers
Association Convention
in San Diego. This
association renewed its
commitment to us and
will start a new program
called Auction for

As you know, Unico
International has been a
substantial supporter of
St. Jude from its


inception. This

developed with our
founder Danny Thomas.
I am happy to report
that we have maintained
and grown that
relationship. I was
honored to speak at
their annual convention
in Fort Lauderdale, Ha.,
in early August.
As you can see, we
have had a very active
summer of fundraising
activities. We are
beginning to get ready
for our fall events.
We- all look forward
to this year's launch of

Nick Poris spoke on

Amelia Poris formed the

belly dance. They danced

1966 was the year the

Thressa Shamoun was

Other complaints came
from people who said
,they had wanted to
vote for the governing
National Democratic
Party (NDP) candidate
or that they were
Christians and so
would never dream of
voting for the Muslim
Brotherhood.
If it is possible to
say so, what was even
sadder about the whole
sorry affair is that the
majority of the damage
to the country's


democratic system
took place before
election day. Recent
changes to the
Egyptian constitution
meant that
independent judicial
supervision was no
longer an option, with
judges no longer being
in charge of polling
stations. Added to this,
the country's decades
old emergency laws
were also recently
enshrined in the
constitution. As one
disappointed voter
said, "Egypt used to be
a police state in
contravention of the
constitution. Now, it is
a police state within

ultra long tunnels is too
dangerous because of
the impact of accidents
or breakdowns sofar
beneath the sea.
Although the Moroccan
government has now
published plans for the
project, no price tag has
yet been put on
construction. Some
analysts have put the
figure at anything
between $7bn and
$13bn, although the
latter figure seems the
most realistic when set
against other similar
sized schemes elsewhere
in the world.
However, it will be
hoped that the Spanish-
Moroccan tunnel does
not encounter the same
problems as the Channel
Tunnel. The construction
of the latter was
persistently delayed and
construction costs
overran by 80%, while


the operating company
continues to be crippled
by massive debts.
Construction costs for
such huge, ambitious
projects are notoriously
difficult to rein in, while
the volume of traffic is
very difficult to predict.
The volume of passenger
and freight traffic
through the Channel
Tunnel is 38% and 24%
respectively of what was
forecast. In addition, the
geology of the Straits of
Gibraltar could pose
problems, as the seabed
is made up of rock that is
more permeable than
that in the English
Channel. This could
force engineers to drill
the tunnel further under
the seabed, increasing
the technical challenges
and pushing up costs.
The project is being
led by Swiss engineer
Giovanni Lombardi,
who developed many of

He says: "No works in
the world compare to
this one. There are a lot
of challenges. First of all
the sea at this point is
300 metres deep, about
five to six tifnes deeper
than the Channel Tunnel.
Then there are the
geological conditions:
there are quite a lot of
tectonic movements
between the African and
the European plates. So
there would be quite a
lot of movements in the
earth, of stresses and so
on."
The scheme was


originally mooted about
25 years ago but the
financial backing and
political will appeared to
be lacking at that time.
Now, stronger ties
between Rabat and
Madrid, plus more
determination to see the
project through, should
make development much
more likely. In addition,
the European Union
(EU) is committed to
strengthening its ties
with North Africa, so the
tunnel could comprise a
key plank in Brussels'
strategy to boost trade
across the
Mediterranean.
Financing the project
remains the biggest
challenge. The two
governments are

principle of multi-
candidate presidential
elections be enshrined
in the constitution.
Parliament quickly
passed an amendment
to the existing Article
76, which covers the
question of
presidential elections
---and succession.
However, critics of
the regime say that the
constitutional
amendments will
actually make it easier
for Gamal to succeed
his father, not more
difficult.
With multi-
candidate elections
now guaranteed, the
younger Mubarak
would be fielded as
one such candidate,
with full backing from
the NDP and state
controlled media
-outlets, and win an
election every bit as


open as the recent
Shoura Council poll
discussed above. It is
worth noting that
among the raft of other
recent changes made
to the country's
constitution was a
provision for the
ruling party, that is the
NDP, to decide who
could and could not
stand in any future
elections.
It is hard not to
sympathise with the
obviously apathetic
response to the recent
elections in Egypt.
While the widespread
boycott appeared to
win most public
support on the day,
one ,must sympathise
with an increasingly
jaded Egyptian public
when they see and hear
what is being done in
the name of
democracy.

of the cost by
developing the tunnel
through two state-owned
companies, although
they have yet to reveal
whether new enterprises
will be set up for this
purpose, or whether
existing parastatals will
be given the task.
However, both Madrid
and Rabat hope that the
EU can contribute much
of the funding. The
Moroccan government is
clearly enthusiastic. The
minister for transport,
Karim Ghellab, says:
"It's clearly desirable
that Morocco and Africa
are joined to Europe by a
fixed link. It would ease
communications
between the two, and
allow passengers and
goods to move easily
between the two
continents. It's an
historic project which
the world needs today


and it will go ahead."
Other subsea
connections should also
boost trade between the
two countries. An
electricity transmission
line was laid under the
Mediterranean to allow
Morocco to export
electricity to Spain for
the first time in 2001.
Now a second
interconnector is
currently being laid by
Red Electrica and
'Morocco's Office
National de l'Electricit6
(ONE), as the EU seeks
to encourage the-
creation of a power grid
around the
Mediterranean Basin by
2015. Morocco is
already connected to the
rest of North Africa via
cross border
transmission lines, so
the entire region could
become a power supplier
