Minor Grammar Edit[edit]

"Pompey the Great of the Roman Empire, who captured Antioch in 64 BC, turning Syria into a Roman province," under Classic Antiquity, is not a sentence.

Intro[edit]

In the last sentence of the first paragraph Sunni Arabs should be hyperlinked.

The previous link in the paragraph is for "islam is Syria" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.244.14.168 (talk) 20:21, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Syrian Arab Republic[edit]

As Syria disintegrates, there is a loosing connection between "Syria" and "Syrian Arab Republic". Evidently Baathist Syrian government controls just about 30% of the former area of Syria those days. Overall, when we talk about Syria today we mean geographic concept of Syria and not always pointing to the Syrian Arab Republic. Another issue is that there is an alternative rebel government claiming to be legitimate (Syrian Opposition), and even another quasi-state (ISIS) controlling large parts of it and in a way also referring to itself as Syria (al-Sham). The obvious solution is to move Syria article to Syrian Arab Republic and make Syria a geographic article to prevent confusion with the various entities, now claiming to be "Syria".
