Excerpt from The Arab Awakening: The Story of the Arab National Movement

The frequent risings and upheavals which, in the preceding three centuries, had stirred the Arab world from its torpid passivity under Ottoman dominance do not properly belong to the story. Even such movements 3 the rise of Fakhrud din in Syria, the establishment of the Wahhabi power in Arabia, and the campaigns of mehemed-'ali against his Turkish suzerain, must be relegated to the background as being isolated movements due to particular causes rather than steps in the march of an advancing Arab nationalism. For all their importance at the time, and their ultimate bearing on the destinies of Arab populations, they represent the achievements of individual genius goaded by great ambi tion or great faith, not the exertions of suffering idealists moved by the pride of race.
