so how could those respective situations be a blow to the panarab movement? the brits separated them to prevent the people in Iraq and Syria from having coastal access (thus increasing their economic potential)

i'm sure there are other reasons as well, but as i understood, this was the dominant one...

“Stand out firmly for Justice as witness before God, even against yourselves, against your kin and against your parents, against people who are rich or poor. Do not follow your inclinations or desires lest you deviate from Justice."
-Qur’an 4:135
