Vilayet of Beirut
The Vilayet of Beirut was a vilayet of the Ottoman Empire. It was established from the coastal areas of the Syria Vilayet in 1888 as a recognition of the new-found importance of its then-booming capital, Beirut, which had experienced remarkable growth in the previous years - by 1907, Beirut handled 11 percent of the Ottoman Empire's international trade. It stretched from just north of Jaffa to the port city of Latakia. It was bounded by the Syria Vilayet to the east, the Aleppo Vilayet to the north, the autonomous Mutasarrifate of Jerusalem to the south and the Mediterranean Sea to the west.
At the beginning of the 20th century it reportedly had an area of 11,773 square miles (30,490 km2), while the preliminary results of the first Ottoman census of 1885 (published in 1908) gave the population as 533,500. The accuracy of the population figures ranges from "approximate" to "merely conjectural" depending on the region from which they were gathered.

الجمهورية العربية السورية Al-Jumhūriyyah Al-‘Arabīyah As-Sūriyyah In 1516, the Ottoman Empire invaded the Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt, conquering Syria, and incorporating it into its empire, before conquering Egypt itself the following year. From that time until the 20th century, Syria found itself largely apart from, and ignored by, world affairs.

I Read Before I Go To Bed Every Night
I tried to read some T.S Eliot, but I have memorized half of his poems. So, I switched to Wiliam Butler Yeats; again, I could recite Byzantium and An Irish Airman Foresees his Death like they were imbedded into my brain. So, I went to my library - you would think I was a Zionist with all of my books on the modern state of Israel.
