Abstract:With regard to the role of Islam in resistance to imperialism in Africa during the period 1876-1914 literature has dealt principally with the West African jihad movements and the Muslim-inspired risings in East Africa; there have been signs of a growing reappraisal of resistance in the Near East and North Africa as well. The study of Pan-Islam may be a fruitful place to begin to explore some of the political potentialities inherent in the community of Islam, and to discover some of the connexions between Near Eastern and African resistance. The case of Morocco is an example of how Pan-Islam sought to forge political links between Near Eastern and African resistance movements. These links are traced through an analysis of the ways in which Pan-Islamic agents from Egypt sought to intervene in support of indigenous Moroccan efforts to resist French imperialism during 1900 to 1912.
