Great War and the Remaking of Palestine

This chapter discusses Muhammad Kurd Ali's leadership of a large number of journalists, preachers, poets, and writers from Syria and Palestine who were mobilized in support of the war effort in the Dardanelles. The two compendiums produced for this event (covering the Anatolian and the Hijazi expeditions) address Turkish perception of the Arabs, and Arab perception of the Turks within the Ottoman sultanate, and the possibilities of a future Turkish–Syrian Federation after the war. Even though the language and ideological references of the expeditions are outdated today, they nevertheless reveal hidden agendas and concerns that were uppermost in the minds of the Ottoman leadership.

Keywords:   Muhammad Kurd Ali, Syria, Palestine, Dardanelles, war effort, Turks, Arabs, Turkish–Syrian Federation, Ottoman leadership
