These words by the "father" of Arabic literature in America, and of Arab-American literature written in English, Amīn ar-Rīhānī (sometimes spelled Ameen Al Rihani," 1876-1940), offer a clear testament to the efforts and early successes of the Near East Foundation, formerly known as the Near East Relief Foundation, or the American Committee for Armenian and Assyrian Relief (ACASR). In another sense, these words speak of a historic connection between Americans and people of the area known as greater Syria, which has been overlooked or marginalized in the common disassociation between these separate geographic regions, but which is therefore so important to remember now.
