However, the shared attitude of “anti-imperialism” among the Arab states
only lasted until they lost the war against the new Israeli state in 1948. After this
defeat, it became more and more difficult to blame “imperialism” alone for the
discord within the Arab world. Nonetheless, some advocates of Arab nationalism
tried to reform the concept by incorporating socialist ideas. The anti-imperialist
