Kibbeh can be made over 17 different ways!

The military in Syria is officially called the Syrian Arab Army. It was created on August 1st, 1945 by France after WWI.

Interesting fact; About Hamsters?
The origin of the Syrian Hamster, or the Golden Hamster, is quite interesting indeed. The Syrian Hamster was found in the mid 1700's by a physician studying the climate and culture of Syria, and the hamster was named a new species in 1839. In 1930, a mother with her liter of pups were captured and became test subjects for lab in Jerusalem. It is said that every single Golden Syrian Hamster in all of Syria, can be traced back to that one mother captured in 1930. That must be some family reunion!
