The British policy was a far cry from supporting the Arab unity movement. On the contrary, the British Government tried to forestall that movement or, at least, to postpone its implementation until after the end of the Second World War.
Hashemite attempts at fertile crescent unity: Faysal's Syrian initiatives; 'Abdallah's greater Syria project; Nuri al-Sa'id's initiative. The ever-present panacea - Arab Federation as a solution to the Palestine question: Jewish proposals; Arab initiatives; unofficial British demarches; the Philby Scheme or the proposed Saudi-led federation; official British thinking. The rise of political pan-Arabism: pan-Arabism in Egypt; pan-Arabism in the fertile crescent; the effect of the Palestine Arab rebellion; the growth of cultural co-operation; improvement of inter-Arab relations; the effects of the early years of the Second World War. British policy regarding pan-Arabism: British reaction to Faysal's initiative; Britain and 'Abdallah's Greater Syria Project; British reaction to Nuri al-Sa'id's initiative; British attitude to pan-Arabism. The formation of the Arab League: the impact of Eden's February 1943 statement - the inter-Arab consultations; from the consultations to the preparatory committee; the formation of the Arab League; British attitude - the final stage; British policy in the Middle East - image versus reality, London versus "the men on the post".
