Growing influence from Western nations.
Great Britain and France wanted to preserve their colonial empires after the end of World War Two. But the old colonies and emerging nations wanted to be free and independent, and of course this created a contradiction. Both European powers had taken the old territories of the Ottoman empire after WWI or established protectorates. With the beginning of the Cold War in 1946-47, this positioning was relevant. But the colonialist desires for continued empire frontally collided with just national aspirations in the Middle East and elsewhere.
Influence From Western Nations
Its D sorry about that tard who gave 2 answers:)
The correct answer is the fourth one: growing influence from Western nations.
In the following years to the Second World War, many Arab countries were struggling to be independent of Western powers and their influence. During this period, countries like Tunisia and Algeria were still colonies of France, other countries, like Iraq, were under direct influence of the UK or were British colonies, like some Gulf countries, and Egypt ended the British occupation in 1952, with the overthrown of King Farouk by a group of officers led by Gamal Abdel Nasser. In this context, the State of Israel was established in the former British territory of Palestine, which was considered by the Arab countries like a treason from Western powers. Under these circumstances, pan-Arabism, a secular Arab nationalist ideology that seeks unity among Arab people, gained strength and was driven by Nasser in Egypt and the Baath parties in Iraq and Syria.
