Extensive discussion about my article “Progenitor of Wars and Tyrannies: the Falsehood of Pan-Arabism” in the Political Forum

One of my most popular articles ever proved to be the devastating rejection and denunciation of Pan-Arabism that I published under the title “Progenitor of Wars and Tyrannies: the Falsehood of Pan-Arabism” in several portals notably American Chronicle, Buzzle and AfroArticles in the mid-2000s.

The entry title was ‘Φυλές και Λαοί της Μέσης Ανατολής’ (Peoples and ethnic groups in the Middle East). In my Curriculum, it is mentioned as no 37 in the first unit of my Entries to Encyclopedias, here:
