An Overview Of The Arap Thought Action From Separatist Action Against The Ottomans To The Struggle Of Independence And Sovereignty Against The West
The Turkish-Arabic alliance, union and peace have shown itself as an important support in terms of the conquests against West. Especially, the Turkish-Arabic unity which was established by Ottomans through getting Arabs under administration has facilitated and accelerated the Ottoman conquests against west. But besides the fact that the West has gotten the economic and technical superiority, the development in communication and publication means and the negative effect of nationalism, independence and democracy understanding, which has occurred in West as a result of these means, on the Ottoman administration and society structure has brought about some unwanted results. In that process the religion and customs has been primarily effective. The protection politics and propaganda of the Western countries intended for the minority groups living in Ottoman Empire has accelerated these minorities’ desire for freedom and autonomy. These politics and propagandas have been effective firstly on the Christian elements living in Ottoman Empire. Although the nationalist movements and desire for independence of the Serbians and Greeks have caused some problems for Ottomans, especially the nationalist movements and the desire of independence of Arabs have been astonishing for Ottomans. Although the Ottoman government has fought for keeping up a Turkish-Arabic unity in 19th century, as a result of the fact that Christian-Arab intellectuals which are living intensively in Syria, Lebanon and Egypt have generated, with the encouragement of West, the Arabic nationalism and separation ideas and provoked the organized separation movements the fragmentation process of Ottomans has been accelerated. The Muslim and non- Muslim separatist groups which has been deceived by the support and the promises of the Western countries have acted together and this has served the interest of the western countries. After the collapse of Ottoman State, especially the Arabs has observed that the promises were not being fulfilled and started to fight for independence and freedom under the mandate of Western countries. This has been a historic experience especially for Arabs. The works and discussions on the gains and losses of Turkish-Arabic solidarity has been continues up to this time.

In developing countries like Turkey, unemployment rate is very high related to the developed countries. Therefore, by the usage of this financing model of which one of the most important goals is to have people start their own business, the developing countries not only increase their economic development but also decrease their high unemployment rate. The purpose of this study is to search the condition of the venture capital financing model in Turkey by comparing with the United Kingdom. For this analysis, the situations of the constraints about the venture capital in these countries are examined. In addition, by using research and development expenditures, patent applications of residents and nonresidents, number of venture capital companies and funding sources of the venture capitals, a comparison between these countries are made. At the end of the study, it can be concluded that because of the insufficient protection of minority shareholder rights, lack of the government involment to the venture capital system, shortness of the maturity of the funds, few expert consulting firms and weak opennes to the innovation, the usage of venture capital financing model in Turkey is very inadequate.
