a correction to one of your changes
The original sentence was: "Trouble erupted with the colonial power after King Faysals defeat and the Adham Khanjar incident which Sultan al-Atrash and his men had participated in."
you changed it to: "defeat and the Henri Gouraud , the French High Commissioner in Syria and Lebanon, assassination attempt which Sultan al-Atrash and his men had participated in."
The incident was this: Adham Khanjar was suspected for the assassination attempt, he was captured in Suwayda by french forces and sent to prison, Sultan al Atrash demeaned his release, when the french refused he led a group of men to attack a french convoy, and the trouble erupted for almost a year after, in Suwayda, the french started shelling Suwayda. this was why 3alia took her kids and fled.
So Sultan al Atrash had not participated in the assassination attempt.
Look at Page 37: http://books.google.se/books?id=Eca2pXOX-F8C&pg=PA37&lpg=PA37&dq=Adham+Khanjar+Incident&source=bl&ots=A8mYmpk5VC&sig=0AUqXfiPIaM7VndOFkIsJIcYnD8&hl=sv&ei=4spRStfPOKWKmwPQy6ioBQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5
On page 38 it says: "it was in fact the Adham Khanjar incident which sparked 3alias emigration from the jabal"(suwayda) , it also says that she first left for Damascus, then Beirut, and then headed for British territory (most likely Haifa as is written in "Images of enchantment" Page 81) before arriving in Egypt,
That they fled to Damascus and Beirut before Haifa and then finally Egypt is also confirmed in Images of enchantment
- The word homeland is very subjective and under the current dispute it shouldn't be used in describing either Egypt or Syria. Supreme Deliciousness I added the information as I understood as it seemed that you had no time or didn't want to edit the article anymore. Please explain the incidents and possible create a section about why they fled as this is very important. You have about three more ours so please use them in better displaying the circumstances they fled for. And add all information possible from your sources please. No problems in grammar and copyedits as this will be dealt with later. Hope you continue working on the article.--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 10:24, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
