The Great Arab Revolt’s foremost achievements include:

 The establishment of independent Arab kingdoms in Hijaz, Syria and Iraq as well as the establishment of an Emirate in Transjordan — which all carried the message of the Great Arab Revolt.

 Placing Arabs on the global political map and giving them a voice at international fora.

 Entrenching the concept of the Arab world as an integrated political unit.

 Establishing the legitimacy of Arab demands and their right to self-determination by forming an independent Arab state encompassing the majority of areas that were under the Ottoman state.

 Giving legitimacy to Arab demands after they had been confined to talk at secret councils and clubs. The Arab idea began to crystallise into a living creed affected by surrounding developments and gaining strength and experience.

 Restoring the spiritual unity of Arabs and creating a national history that had not been in place since the Abbasid caliphate fell in the mid-13th century, when that unity was fragmented into disparate entities controlled by non-Arab elements.

 Its leadership’s historic and religious reference made it more influential, and as such, Sharif Hussein bin Ali wanted it to be the launch-pad to regain Arab rights to self-determination and revive Arab heritage and sovereignty in Arab land.

 The Great Arab Revolt and the principles of the Arab Awakening are historical landmarks whose events represent a source of pride in and belonging to it and Jordan.
