Jean Dayah

Did I recommend to you the new book by Jean Dayah on Kahlil Gibran (we know him as Jubran Khalil Jubran in Arabic)?  It is the most original that I have seen and he exposes the Lebanese nationalist attempt to Lebanonize Jubran and shows how his words were deliberately distorted (the word Syria is replaced with Lebanon for example) to turn him falsely into a Lebanese nationalist.
