ABSTRACT

As soon as British rule began, the Palestinian national movement too began to grow and take shape, its purpose to resist British imperial rule stubbornly until complete national independence was achieved. Thus, from 1919 a new political leadership appeared alongside the traditional one. Parties were established, congresses and assemblies were called, and newspapers reported enthusiastically on the national activity of the new movement.
