How the Zionists transfer their poison to the minds of young people

Damascus (ST): Transferring the racist Zionist ideology to young generations and spreading its poison is an endeavor that the Israeli occupation authorities have worked on since the formation of this entity with the aim of sowing hatred against Arabs and Palestinians and giving legitimacy to the perpetration of massacres against Arabs and Palestinians.

The book (Letters of Hatred from Talmud Racism to Racism in Education), by researcher Ahmed Raja Orabi, sheds light on the efforts of the Zionist leaders to perpetuate their ideology separated from reality through methods of work and actual application on the ground.

In presenting the book, Dr. Khalaf Al-Muftah, director of the Al-Quds International Foundation, which issued it, refers to the educational discourse, both religious and cognitive, in the Zionist entity, and its rejection of the idea of accepting the other in light of its racist policies, including education.

The role of music in the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia

Book Review

Damascus (ST):  Man has known music for ages, deriving it from the elements of nature. He tried to imitate it in response to his innate desires to express himself and his feelings. But the most prominent breakthrough that music knew was with the civilization of Mesopotamia, where it flourished to become an independent art and science linked with many other arts and sciences. According to the book issued electronically by the Syrian General Book Authority entitled “The Functional Role of Music in the Civilization of Mesopotamia during the Old and Medieval Bronze Ages 3500/1600 BC,” archaeological excavations in many Mesopotamian sites revealed large numbers of evidence that document the  prevailing musical culture in the country during those eras. The book, written by researcher Ataa Raad Abu Al-Jadayel, sheds light on the motives and reasons that led to the development of music in that early period in the history of the Mesopotamian civilization, revealing its role and the extent of its integration into the details of daily life.

Syrian expatriate turns his own home library into a public library to encourage reading

In an individual initiative that aims at encouraging reading on paper, Syrian expatriates in the United Arab Emirates Hassan Al-Bahri has turned his own home library into a public library.

Al-Bahri told SANA about the details of this initiative, saying that he started to organize a small library in his house ten years ago. The library contained a limited number of books he had selected during his visits to libraries. Gradually, he collected many important books that inspired him to allocate an area of 110 square meters of his house for a public library which people can visit either to read or borrow books.

"I wanted to create an opportunity to enhance culture and literature away from financial benefits with the aim  of reviving the habit of reading on paper which has become rare under the current technological developments," Al-Bahri made it clear.
