Description

Note on the Emir Faisal and the Eastern Situation [1920]
Text of a telegram from Greater Lebanon’s committee to the Syrian Central Committee 1920

"By an unspeakable act of violence, the Emir Faisal [...] has become the king of Syria, refusing any help or collaboration from France. Faced with the threat of a brutal regime, with its inevitable result of bloody unrest, the people of Beirut and all of Greater Lebanon expressively protested and refused to recognize the King of Syria. […]
Greater Lebanon maintains its full claims. It intends to remain independent, rejects this suzerainty, resists by arms, and appeals to France to defend its rights, which are now associated with its own, based on the secular pact and the sworn-on arrangement.”
