Communication blocked by the British.

British were hesitant about him joining Arab Revolt with Sherif Hussein because they don’t want the Arab Revolt to be too strong or too PanArabic, but as need arose for commanders, he was a natural choice.

Sharif Hussein was suspicious of such a previously Ottoman loyal warrior to join the Arab Revolt, but his son Faisal insisted and convinced his father.

Faisal wrote him directly and invited him to be the commander of the Arab Revolt Northern Army which is led previously by Faisal himself.

In 1917, he accepted and set sail to Wejh (north Hijazi city).

Fought till the victory of the Arab Revolt and the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1918.

In 1921, appointed as Minister of Defense in Newly formed Iraq by King Faisal.

In 1923, appointed as Prime Minister in Iraq.

After couple years, he resigned as he didn’t like the job and was appointed as Iraq minister in London.

In 1926, appointed as Prime Minister again, but resigned in December 1927 since his plan was not liked by people.

Assassinated in 1936 as part of Bakr Sidqi military coupe.

الإسلام و العروبة في خندق واحد في التاريخ

الجمعية القحطانية : جمعية عربية تأسست في القسطنطينية عام 1909 خلال الدولة العثمانية. و هي في الأصل جمعية سرية امتازت ببرنامجها الجرئ المطالب باستقلال البلاد العربية مع المحافظة على الولاء للتاج العثماني و قد أعدم أحمد جمال باشا معظم أعضاء هذه الجمعية و منهم عبد الحميد الزهراوي و رفيق رزق سلوم و عزة الجندي.

أهدافها:

١. دعت إلى أن يكون السلطان التركي ملكا على العرب والترك من خلال تكوين امبراطورية تركية عربية وأن يضع السلطان التاج العربي بجانب التاج التركي (مملكه ذات تاجين)

٢. وأن تمنح الولايات العربية الاستقلال «الذاتي» في نطاق الدولة العثمانية

٣. مجابهة التيار العنصري التركي بتيار قومي عربي، من أجل تمكين العرب من السيطرة على مؤسسات الولايات العربية

المؤسسين:

١. خليل حماده المصري (من مصر)

٢. عبد الكريم الخليل (من لبنان)

٣. سليم الجزائري (من الجزائر)

من أبرز أعضائها:

الأمير شكيب أرسلان

الدكتور عزت الجندي

محمد كرد علي

الأمير عارف الشهابي

علي النشاشيبي

عزيز المصري (يعتبر العضو الأبرز ويقال في أحيان كثيرة أنه المؤسس)

تحسين علي

و تحولت لجمعية العهد لاحقاً.

أنشأ هذه الجمعية البكباشي عزيز المصري (في الصورة في الدائرة الحمراء) بالإضافة إلى مجموعة من الضباط العرب في الجيش العثماني بعد الخلاف الذي دب في جمعية الاتحاد والترقي بين الضباط العرب الذين طلبوا مزيدا من الحقوق لعرب وبين الضباط الأتراك الذين تنكروا لمطلب العرب.

تأسست بتاريخ 28 أكتوبر 1913 لتحل محل الجمعية القحطانية وكان برنامجها هو برنامج الجمعية القحطانية وإن كان قد صيغ بلغة عسكرية وهو السعي وراء الاستقلال الداخلي للبلاد العربية. ومن أبرز الضباط العرب الذين انضموا إلى الجمعية طه الهاشمي وشقيقه ياسين الهاشمي ومحمد شريف العمري وسليم الجزائري.

اعدم جمال باشا السفّاح المثير منهم في عام ١٩١٥م.

جمعية العهد و جمعية العربي الفتاة اتحدا في الثورة العربية بقيادة الشريف فيصل بن علي عام ١٩١٦م.

استمر من بقي على قيد الحياة منهم للعمل على تاسيس الدولة العربية.

لم يكن هناك خلافاً إسلامياً قومياً حينئذ و كانت القومية العربية و الوحدة الاسلامية حليفان في خندق واخد ضد الظلم و الاستبداد و الاستعمار.

Dissimulation and deceit

Cooperation and capitulation
Realism and abandonment of principle

Don’t judge without understanding context, history, circumstances, and motives.
