Sabir the Egyptian

For any one who lives at the edge of the Arabian Desert, a trip to Paris especially in spring time is a wonderful experience, but the Author of this book never thought that such a trip could lead to writing this book. .

The book “Sabir the Egyptian” is the life story of a man who lived some two hundred years ago during a turbulent period of east / west relationship, by telling his story the author hopes that on both sides many facts will be clear.

As the driving forces of hate , greed and domination on both sides can be fatal for both civilizations if the intellectuals and wise thinkers do not step in and put an end to the mischievous acts of those who want to reestablish Alexander’s Kingdom or the Roman Empire again , like Napoleon or Hitler or those who want to repeat the un Islamic and murderous acts of Eleven September.

This book is a try to tell the story about the first major encounter between west and east after the crusades, to hopefully paint a picture on how it should never be again.

About the author (2008)

My name is Muthanna Al Kurtass, I am a Citizen of Saudi Arabia Since childhood I liked to tell stories and like many children in the Arab world most of the summer vacations were spent in grand parents homes, my father had one sister and when I came from the other house of my mother's parents she wanted to know every thing, and I at a very young age was telling her my stories, she knew off course that I was making things up, but she enjoyed them a lot and she used to laugh about them, especially about the apple trees my other grand father has planted on the roof and how delicious the apples were " Later in life I became a sea farer whose profession took to all corners of the world, I have come to know the world from seeing, touching and smelling and not only from hearing, reading or watching films. In my early years, I spent more than one year at the shores of the lovely Starenberger Lake in Bavaria learning the German Language in a boarding school before going up north to the German sea shores to spend many years among tough German Sailors. Sea travel at a young age took me to many parts of the world. When meeting and talking to people from other parts of the world, it was evident how ignorant we are of each other, an ignorance that lead to many unfortunate happenings . This book is meant to be a tool of introducing the east to the west and vise versa, I believe it is very vital if we want to avoid the mistakes of the past and ensure a peaceful future.
