What a wonderful surprise to discover such an excellent site on this author I was not familiar with. Next to Gibran and the contemporary ones such as Alexandre Najjar, Amin Maalouf or Elias Khoury, Rihani will definitely find his place on my bookcase, and memory, to honor Lebanon, a Dearest Land of mine, in the language of my heart. I am touched by his in-betweenness of two worlds and two languages, that I also share, and I cannot wait to meet his soul through his words and generosity to the world. And be sure I will pay a visit to the Museum on my trip to Beyrouth next February.

Thank you for hosting my thoughts and providing so deep a feeling of what encountering is, sometimes.
                 

The author Amin Al Rihani has two portraits: The first one of an Arabic literature writer that I read about in 'Qualb Loubnan' while at school, in addition to other Lebanese writers like Maroun Abboud, Youssef Awwad, Mikhael Neameh, and of course Gibran. The other side of Ameen Rihani is of a Pan Arab Nationalist, i.e. a Politician to the side of Sharif Hussein, Constantine Zureik and others.

I mentioned his name in a salute tribute to his efforts in Arabic Nationalism in two of my papers published on the Morepist Press website s.com/mp/. The first one about "A Systemic Approach To Peace in the Middle East" that appears in General Politics, and the other on "Cartesian, Messianic and Mahdeic Approach to Peace" that appears in the Opinion section. Both papers present an objective/subjective analysis to the question of peace from an academic angle.
         

Hope we keep appreciating our national symbols and writers.
           

Great website! Some years ago, Kahlil Gibran led me to Ameen Rihani and over 2 years ago, Dr. Suheil Bushrui's essays on Rihani led me to this website. At that time, I did not notice this guestbook - is this a new addition? Anyway, I have been spreading the word among my friends about Ameen Rihani because I feel that if his writings had been from the beginning required reading in appropriate grade levels, we and our children would have grown up understanding the beautiful culture and great contributions of the East, and the world today--and tomorrow--would be predominantly marked by harmony and diversity instead of divisions and violence.

I am currently reading my first Ameen Rihani book translated from Arabic THE HEART OF LEBANON, a part of the Murex Series-Lebanese Authors, a project overseen by his nephew and namesake Dr. Ameen Rihani, who holds a very high position at Notre Dame University in Lebanon. I bought my copy at lebanonart.com. I am enjoying this book tremendously.

I'd like to see Lebanon someday compare the now and what he saw in the very early 1900's. I've promised myself that this year and next will be devoted to buying Rihani's books.
                   

This has been a great resource for my research. Thanks for keeping the site up and running.
