1967, the Demise of Arab Nationalism, the Islamic Reforms

“In 1967 Egypt was for the third time defeated in war against Israel, and again lost the Sinai Peninsula. This defeat became a symbol of the bankruptcy of secular Arab nationalism, and signaled a profound ideological shift in favor of an alternative project—Islamism.”

P. 98, Peter R. Demant and Asgharali Engineer.
