Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


It is kind of hilarious that the Sahara Syrian restaurant is (presumably) named after the Sahara, a desert on the African continent and not in Syria, and is advertised with an image of a pyramid akin to those in Egypt.

There were also a lot of Armenians involved which is very interesting considering they are and were very much a minority in Syria.
