  1. Thanks for your articles.. regarding your work of fiction called Mujahid about the Syrian conflict and the connection with modern Lawrences of Arabia you may well be aware of of this article written by TE Lawrence in 1915. He’d be about 20 – obviously his perspective is from a white man from the British empire but nonetheless his observations are interesting in providing some context of what is happening now in Syria? see link Anyway just thought I’d pass it along. all best with your writing Neil http://www.telstudies.org/writings/works/articles_essays/1915_syria_the_raw_material.shtml
