    Well, yes, Palestine existed, but not in the way the questioner probably means it. Palestine was a province of the Ottoman Empire; a province being called a ‘vilayet’ in Turkish. It remained a province of the Ottoman Empire for just over years. Nor should we forget that when Israel launched pre-emptive strikes on June 5, and within six days occupied the Golan Heights, Gaza, the Sinai, Jerusalem, and the West Bank another , Arabs were forced to leave the additional areas in Syria, Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine that were occupied by Israel.

    Palestine was conquered by the Islamic Caliphate, beginning in CE. In , the Battle of Yarmouk during the Muslim conquest of the Levant marked the start of Muslim hegemony over the region, which became known as Jund Filastin within the province of Bilâd al-Shâm (Greater Syria). In , with the Assassination of Ali, Muawiyah I became the Caliph of the Islamic world after being crowned. Roughly speaking it includes Asia Minor, Mesopotamia, Syria, Palestine, Arabia, and Egypt, with a fringe of other lands and islands stretching beyond them. The heart of all this territory is that little strip of land, lying between the desert on the east and the Mediterranean Sea on the west, known as Syria and Palestine.

      Its resurgence in the first decade of the 21st century was one of the many unintended outcomes of US military adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq. Suddenly rid of two hostile regimes on its borders—the Taliban and Saddam Hussein—Iran extended its power into the Arab Middle East, cementing its growing power in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine. After the death of Alexander the Great at Babylon (B.C. ), his vast empire was divided between his four generals. Egypt, Arabia, Palestine, and Coele-Syria fell to the lot of Ptolemy Lagus. Ptolemy took possession of Palestine in B.C. , and carried nearly one hundred thousand of the inhabitants of Jerusalem into Egypt.

This sequel book about Syria, is really for the fine tasters. It’s not just about the Ba’athist period, afterbut also a long time before – he gives a deep perspective on the time of the French Mandate, and of the Ottoman Empire.

Also if you want to get to know something about the earlier history of Syria, it’s a very good book to. W.M. Thomson in his Thomson, The Land and the Book (new edition, ) and G.E.

Post, Flora of Syria, Palestine, and Sinai (), gave a needed popular resume of the manners, customs and folklore of the people, as these illustrated the Bible, and many books and articles since have added to. The claim that the Roman emperor Hadrian, eager to punish Jewish inhabitants of Judea after the Bar Kokhba Revolt, officially changed the name of the region to "Syria Palaestina" or simply "Palestine" in CE and forced the Jewish community into exile is dubious at best, especially when, by then, the terms "Syrian Palestine" and "Palestine.

The book largely covers life in Raqqa, but thanks to Hisham’s travels and the writers’ nuanced understanding of the broader conflict, it also takes on dynamics of the war elsewhere in Syria.

The officers generally thought that a force of not less t soldiers would be required even to initiate the programme. That of itself is evidence of a strong sense of the injustice of the Zionist programme, on the part of the non-Jewish populations of Palestine and Syria.

The normal path to resolving conflicts in this regional tinderbox should be through political leaders in Israel, Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon, with assistance when needed from Egypt, other Arab. Palestine to-day may be more civilized and efficient, but it is far from happy in its changed appearance.

Palestine wants Palestine refugees who lost their homes in be able to come back. Israel wants it to be recognised as a Jewish state.The big political schemes for a Jewish Palestine in the eighteen-forties, whether conceived by Gentile or conceived by Jew, were based upon the rule of Mehemet Ali over Syria and Palestine.
