[quote:Anonymous Coward 3767410:MV8yMDU1OTc2XzM0NTc2MTc5Xzk3RTFFRTBG] The Sharif of Mecca controlled the area in 1917 before he was betrayed by Sykes Picot and the British giving large chunks of the area to the French. The original agreement would have made Palestine part of the Hussein Caliphate of Mecca, but the British betrayed Feisal and funded Ibn Saud to overthrow the Sharifite forces of Mecca in 1920 forming Saudi Arabia.
