I am definately not an authority on the subject, but from my own personal experience, I can tell you that the cuisine is similar to Turkish in both of these countries. I know that Lebanon was part of the Ottoman Empire (not sure about Syria)and many customs/aspect of culture/cuisine are similar. Most of the population of Lebanon and Syria are Muslim, however there are a fair number of Christians in both countries. I am also pretty sure they speak Arabic (or a form of Arabic) in both countries.
