A Ba'athist is a member of a pan-Arab socialist Ba'ath (from the Arabic for "revival") political party active principally in Syria and Iraq.[1] The movement began during the 1940s with the goal of uniting the entire Arab-speaking world into a nation state.[2] Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was an influential Ba'athist and placed the Ba'ath Party at the center of his regime.[3]
