CAIRO TO DAMASCUS through JOHN ROY CARLSON. PREFACE: it kind of feels to me there are methods, quite often talking, to pre pare a booklet, make a journey, or, for that topic, to stay a existence. One may match at it dilettante type, as a vacationer nibbling at ex perience, titillating the sentiments but emotionally starved, stimulating oneself with ambition but endlessly tortured through frustration. situations and temperament, despite the fact that, may perhaps conspire jointly in order that, with the liberty of a nomad, you can actually get away the straightjacket of daily boredom, hurdle fences of house and time, and devour lifestyles at its assets. Prop erly directed, such a mundane existence can provide wing to one's mind's eye, readability to one's pondering, energy to one's convic tions, or even deliver one closer to the straightforward, everlasting truths of God and spirit This booklet, i believe, belongs within the moment classification the cate gory of the primitive. I left my state rather as uninformed, i'm afraid, as are so much american citizens with admire to different peoples and different shorelines. yet all over the place I went I sought to the touch fact constantly truthfully, and continually initially hand. far and wide I clung with reference to the smells, the wildlife of local life. In that spirit i've got written of the Arabs between whom I lived. i discovered a lot strong and masses evil evil got via a feudal order that, in rny opinion, continues to be the Arab's maximum enemy and his maximum barrier to emergence from the darkish a long time. i'm thankful for Arab hospitality and the kindness i used to be proven, yet a reporter, like a doctor, mustn't ever stay unaware of the ills plaguing his topic. with out wish to characteristic to myself or my writings any viii Preface exaggerated value, it truly is my fervent desire that the various Armenians dwelling within the Arab center East won't undergo by the hands of enthusiasts simply because an American of Armenian descent occurred to jot down this booklet. To them i will be able to merely say that i've got advised the tale in truth, as I observed it. And to my Arab acquaintances who requested in basic terms that I inform the truth/' i will say in all judgment of right and wrong that i've got advised the reality. allow me guarantee them that I converse during this booklet as an American, and basically in a person potential, with out ties to or club in any Armenian-American physique store the church into which i used to be born. Any retribution opposed to the Armenians a minority island in a Moslem sea will be an unwarranted and mindless cruelty. i've got written this publication with the desire that it'll carry either Arabs and Jews into more true concentration for the reader; that it'll support demonstrate what they're and what they aren't, what should be ex pected of them and what's most unlikely. I pray that those historical Semitic peoples will reconcile their changes, that Palestine refugees who, by and large, left their houses simply because Arab leaders steered them to take action looking forward to a quick struggle and a short victory should be resettled. the one substitute to peace is catastrophe for Arab, Jew, and Christian, for none may well desire to prosper by myself. jointly they might finally construct a filthy rich and democratic heart East. to stay aside, at dagger's element, capacity in basic terms that Communism and anarchy should be the last word victors.
