III)The Failures of Pan-Arabism

Pan-Arabism is dead, no matter what people say. Some people are still clinging to it, calling the Arabs to rise up, calling the Arabs to wake up, but there are no arabs, never was, never will.There are consumers, sitting on their asses collecting the money from the petrol eating, buying cars, and have goats beauty pageants. On the other hands, you got the extremely poor, uneducated, isolated from the world “Arabs” that have no clue other than their local sheikh, priest and gossips while trying to survive amid their corrupt, often criminal leaders.”Arabs” never cared about each other, while would they? they are not the same people, they have nothing in common, they were just forced to be “Arabs” by their leaders.

Pan-Arabism was bound to die the minute it was born, when you have extreme differences between countries, you can never  have a common cause. When you have countries that consider some other country as a friend and a partner, while others regard it as enemy or aiding an enemy (hint: USA), you can never have a common cause.When you have leaders ready to be bribed by riches while leaving their fellow citizens dying, you can never have a common cause.

After the war of 1967, the failure of Arabism was obvious and it was just a matter of time before it dies completely in the 70s, with the Jordanians not joining the war with Syria and Egypt, and Then the Peace agreement between Israel and Egypt.

Then the gap kept widening, the need of a new -ism was obvious, Pan-Islamism was getting stronger…
