When is the definite article used in country names? For example: العراق، اليمن...
There doesn't seem to be a rule. Perhaps someone else can comment on this. In the meantime, here is a list of definite countries: https://arabicbox.wordpress.com/2015/05/01/when-to-use-the-definite-article-al-with-countries-name/
I don't see anyone complaining here that France is referred to as a place. And I suppose there is no arguing that it's in fact a country...so why do so nany people complain about Palestine called a place? I think all those people are just trying to fight.
