Do you personally think that Ottoman rule or European rule was more beneficial for the Arab world?

The Ottomans were a giant independent Pan Arab state? Arab also is like German it's a word with two meanings, Muslim because Muslims are all called Arab and Arab as in coming from literal Arabia. To be honest I don't think who ruled the Middle East mattered so much as someone ruling it.
No; I was talking about a Pan-Arab state that could have been created in the Arab parts of the Middle East following the Ottoman Empire's collapse in WWI--assuming, of course, that Britain and France actually saw the sense in doing this as opposed to merely partitioning the Middle East between the two of them.
