This chapter describes the characteristics of René Guénoun in his youth, and discusses how he respects the Arab culture. As a young man, René had the natural features of an Arab. He was tall, broad-shouldered, and well-built. He liked the Arabic culture, particularly their dignity, smile, language, as well as the percussive sounds of their words in their mouths. Also, he respected the Koran and mosques although he was an atheist. He always felt honored to enter the Muslim houses and to sit on mats arrayed on the floor, and was moved by the women's tact and the patriarchs' dignity.
