Is "Palestine" Separate From Syria?

...there were three main deductions arrived at by that [King-Crane] Commission. One was that Syria was wholly indivisible. The one strong feeling of all Arabs was that Syria should not be cut up into what we term Syria and into Palestine. Geographically and ethnographically, those two countries are one. That is one point which, I think, would be found to be laid down in the Report of the Commission.
