 Socialist Viewpoint
Hussein naively thought that Great Britain would be grateful for another war front opened up against the Turks, further weakening their resolve to fight Great Britain.
As punishment, Sherif Hussein and his Hashemite people were driven from Mecca and Medina by a shameless groveling warlord, Ibn Saud, who became a willing accomplice of the British to artificially divide the Arabian Peninsula.
Faisal Hussein is a tragic figure in the sense that he was a charismatic and talented leader capable of initiating a movement that could have united the entire Arab world, only to end his days as a quisling monarch, watching helplessly as Great Britain slaughtered and dispersed with armed violence the people he once led.

 Arab Revolt at AllExperts
The Arab Revolt (1916–1918) was initiated by the Sherif Hussein ibn Ali with the aim of securing independence from the ruling Ottoman Turks and creating a single unified Arab state spanning from Aleppo in Syria to Aden in Yemen.
The Arabs were also threatened by the construction of the Hejaz railway, which helped move Turkish troops deep into Arab areas (the railway was actually finished under the old Sultan, but its effects became more noticeable under the CUP government).
Because of these reasons, Sherif Hussein, as the head of the Arab nationalists, entered into an alliance with the United Kingdom and France against the Ottomans around June 8 1916 (the actual date is a bit uncertain).
