Chapter Summary

The fact of Japan being the only Eastern nation with a constitution and its stand against Russia greatly encouraged the national and constitutional movements which began to flourish at that time in the Middle East, and its victory appeared to them as vindication of the righteousness of their cause. In contrast to the upheavals in Iran and the Ottoman Empire, the war's influence on the other parts of the Middle East was less obvious. Egypt, the case study in this chapter, was at that time in the vanguard of the movement towards national awakening and the intellectual debate on Western occupation and its influence on the Middle East. The very extensive discussion of the Russo-Japanese War in Al-Manar may seem surprising since Japan is not an Islamic country, and even if there were any Muslims there, it was not they who justified discussion of the war.
