Couple of weeks ago, Murad Bardakci, who is a well known journalist/Historian, claimed on the TV that Jamal Pasha- one of the Pasha Trios (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Pashas) -  betrayed the Ottoman Empire in the WWI. The claim is that during the last days of the WWI the Pasha was trying to contact with the British Empire and ready to sign a peace treaty on the condition that a British supported Syrian Kingdom should be established under his own dynasty. He was controlling the Ottoman Syria and Lebenon back then.

A Claim I have never heard of. Sounds logical though. But do you know any sources about it?

Another theory without any shread of evidence or logic to support it.
Syrians were willing to make the Devil himself their king but not Jamal Pasha Al-Saffah (the "mass murderer" which is still part of his name in the official historyography here). The guy hanged dozens in Beirut on this same day (well it was on May 6th but close enough) 94 years ago as well as other days before and after for just voicing the opposition to the Ottoman empire. There was simply no sympathy to him nor any kind of support.
