Objective 8: describe Arab Nationalist Movement led by Nasser
Taylor Bell, Neha Bhattacharyya
After WW2, Arab nations formed a sense of Arab nationalism mainly in Pan-Arab. Under Nasser, they were united by religion, language, and the goal of not being influenced by Europe or the US. Nasser led the Arab nationalist movement. He used the Muslims hatred of Israel to further unite them. He never achieved a unified Arab nation due to political differences that were outlined in the Cold War, and of religious differences of between the Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims. Nasser died not having destroyed Israel and not having created a unified Arab Nation.
