and the fraternal spirit appeared among whom attended at the meeting which completed the election of the first officers of the supreme councilors for Orient de Canaan, and the results were as follows: The G:.S:. pole Jean Abu Noam, the G:.S:. Assistant General Fuad Fadoul, the General Secretary G:.M:. Toufic Trad , the General officer-for External Relations, Dahir Deeb, and the relations officer of the Interior and Foreign Affairs Raymond Batanian and the General treasurer Joseph Jabbour.
In the second week which followed the election session the G:.S:. Abu Naum chaired the first meeting of the elected community on Orient de Canaan, the names of the presence are: G.S. Boghos Aramian and G:.S:. Abraham Sarayan and their High Commissioners, and the supporter G:.S. Fouad faddoul assisted in the management of the first session. During the session G:.S:.

Abu Naum asked brother Trad, to open the ceremony Promotion, and qualifies brother Deeb to the 30 degree, the aim for the request of G:.S:. were for two things: The first was legal because G:.M:. Trad he is the head of the degrees from 4-to 30 in the Grand Orient of Lebanon, and the Lebanese Supreme Council Commissioner of the 33 and the last degree. And he is also the Chairman from the 18 to 30 degrees in Al- Arez and he who did on advice Deb to follow the test extent of cooperation among Deb and with the Grand Lodges and with the Orient de Canaan, because of the session of the falses which belongs to another group members, they working contrary to the Masonic ritual because of the ignorances of the head of new group who managing the meetings session which relying on the teachings of the counterfeiting members in traditions and literatures of freemasonry which are not legal or logical to teach the new members, the authorization which gave to the head of that group was not legal because this authorization gave the right to them to accept any step brother without testing him before start in granting him the initiation, because of the awakening for Deb the results were from the G:.S:. brother Deeb was confused on the Trad's advice and seemed in all sessions he is confused in front of the other council members, and because of that appeared the fatigue in cooperation between Dib and Trad. After that, Brother Abou Naoum lag in leading the Orient. Brother Batavian seized the opportunity and acted wrong in giving the chair meetings of Orient de Canaan to Deeb , (of course that was illegal but it is Mandate special from brother Batavian). After brother Deb received the center, was his first work that he remoter G:.S:. Aramian from his position in Orient de Canaan, and asked W.F.M. Elie Aziz to replacing Aramian (of course, this assignment is illegal). For all these reasons the brothers of The Grand Lodge Alinkaz dissented their remaining in Orient de Canaan.
As regards to the G:.M:. Trad can not Brother Daher to retaliate from him because Brother Trad moved finally from G:.L:.AlArez7 & from Orient de Canaan and was busy in the foundation of the grand lodge alinkaz. And from that time felt Daher that he is alone and considered that he is denied from his brothers therefore he was acting wrongly , for example he traded with the Masonic membership cards in giving it to every demander even to the nonmasonic .However, brother Daher continued his spite against brother Trad and used another method in plot which was in collecting brothers from Alinkaz Grand Lodge, brother Trad resented the Daher's new method against the Grand Lodge Al-Inkaz, and he forgot haw many times he received aid from the brothers of Alinkaz3 because its brothers they were the largest number of brothers in one lodge and they grown up to nearly about four hundred members,
The first community of Orient De Canaan was corresponded with the Masonic world, the first invitations Letters were received from The Grand Orient de France, and from the Supreme council of Belgium and from the Grand Lodge Of France. The G:. S:. Abou Naoum appointed the first general staff from the authorized brethren Fouad Faddoul, Toufic Trad, Daher Deep and Joseph Jabbour to attend these fraternal meetings, all of them they travelled with one main purpose which they
must explains the aims of Orient de Canaan's and to know the names of its Officers among brethren in the Fraternal session, the first meeting was with the G:. S:. Shaban at the Grand Orient de France, and with the G:. S:. Marcelle Shapira, Rue cadet Paris, and to the second fraternal session was at the Grand Lodge de France with the G:. S:.

Cabalawi did lose his eyesight because one of his assistant A.L.S. did steal from his office all the Orient's letters and the stamps this did Cause the problems in changing his blood sugar and in alarming his situation, and here must be thank the W:.F:.M:. Elie Jabbour Who recruited and transported every day the G:.S:. to the Makassed Hospital in order to treat his eyes by the kind of laser treatments, but this treatment was not useful and helpful or gives any result for his disease , according to diagnosis of the doctor who treated the G:.S:. said that the lack of the effective in treatment was because of anxiety and frustration in his thought which was controlled.

The first month of 1980, and in during the session the Brothers in the Lodge Alinkaz 3 asked the worship master if possible at change their lodge from Alariz grand lodge 7,because they don’t Want in continuing cooperating with Orient de Canaan because of the variations of political and partisan Affiliations, and the incompatibility of the new adjustment which the Grand Sovereign Abu Naum put it for Daher Deeb and Raymond Batavian accepted it, and the brothers of alinkaz3 they not accepted to be once more in the middle of such meeting with it differences and inclinations. And they associated with Alinkaz 3 brethren because they do want to free themselves and be far away from any conflicts may be happened in Alarez locations which contained foreigners from several groups,these foreigners were formed the prevented understanding between Orient de Canaan and his officers.
Secretary General and the General treasurer traveled to meet brethren in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan for they explain the objectives of Orient de Canaan. The Brother G:. M:. Adnan Baayoun (13) was aware of the visit purpose, therefore, he arranged meeting with the authorized Masonic representative on behalf of His Majesty the King Husain of Jordan in the presence of the G:.S:.

The G:.S:. Trad & T:.G:. Jabbour they returned from Jordan and in legal Masonic session the Secretary-General Trad announced the report about his meeting with brothers in Jordan, but the S:.G:. Abou Naoum"s reacted against the G:S:. Trad and asked to punish him because of the unsuccessful result with the Jordan’s Brethren, in this new circumstances some officers of the O:. de Canaan they were divided into two groups, one of them refused to agree with Abou Naoom in his illegal punishment against brother Tradو but the other group they agreed on the punishment, after that Secretary-General, explained the unstable situation of O:.de Canaan and some circumstances of the Fraternal situation in Jordan. And in addition he talked about the Brothers' desire Alinkaz 3 , whom they want to change the location of Alariz grand lodge 7, because they don’t want to cooperate with fait accompli with the situation of the misdealing between the officers of Orient de Canaan.
The Grand Sovereign Abu Naum with Daher Deeb and With Raymond Batavian were announced that they will never accept any brother refused to collaborate with them especially the brothers whom they refused to cooperate with them because of their differences inclinations and the policies of their Masonic movements. Therefore those brothers they wants to free themselves from the new policies of Abou naoum and his colleagues and they must be far away from any conflicts may be happened in the location of the Orient de Canaan, The general secretary Trad gave them several remarks which treating problems of Orient de Canaan with its officers. advices will never help problems with such orders because that kind of collaboration with brethren may lead them toward the fail and unstable atmospheres in their managing of the Freemasonry’s activities and he refused to accept the cooperation with them, brother Trad at the end of the session asked whom supported his resignation and thanked them and apologized from them because of his decision which is refused to cooperate with Orient de Canaan, that because of the conflicts atmosphere among the Sovereign Grand Commander and some of their officers. and after he left the meeting some brothers left with him and joined to the Grand Lodge Alinkaz.

Indeed all the Masonic services which did were supported financially and morally were from the brothers of Lodge Al-Inkaz3.
The meetings fraternal conducted by the Grand Lodge Al-Inkaz largest abroad after separation from East Canaan were many recall including a meeting with a group of Clipsas But the Grand Lodge Al-Inkaz rescue to continue with them because there are conflicts between sex Women and Gender men, and with the Grand Lodge de France and with a Grand Lodge of Italy and with the Grand Lodge of Belgium and Grand Lodge of Sweden and still has external contacts with the old brothers who have retired but they are exercising all the diligence Masonic their work without any delay or boredom or foil (14
In this occasion, from all my heart the special thanks must be conveyed to all old and new members of the Al-Inkaz 3 because they were helpfully in continuing the duties mission of old masonic, and we appreciate the contribution from our allied and from the friendly Lodges’ brothers which supported our prosperity and progress.

The Alinkaz Grand Lodge worked according to the method of old masons in teaching his brothers and was still teaching brothers how they depend on their selves and move away from any laziness and reliance on others because that leads them to the inactivity and frustration.
In our masonic services we teach the old Masonic literatures and the directive of cultural humanity , which based on the old Masonic heritage which teach us our history, and our origin and gives us glances about Adam who lost his humanitarian insight and the magnificence of the high natures, and converted his vision toward the downward life.
