Please change your incorrect and deceiving title in bold as it make readers believe he was both of Syrian and Lebanese descent. Lebanon was part of Greater Syria/Ottoman Syria before 1943. When Lebanon was created those who came from the territory of what became Lebanon started calling themselves Lebanese not Syrian nor Syrian-Lebanese.
