The start of the British Mandate, associated with the support for the establishment of a Jewish National Home in Palestine, makes Palestinians realize that their efforts toward Arab independence will be undermined.  With the increasing Jewish immigration, the establishment of more than 100 colonies, and the building of Zionist institutions entrenched within the Mandate’s governing structures, popular forms of Palestinian resistance periodically erupt into violent clashes, even as political leaders seek to make the Palestinian case to the British administration. By the end of 1935, Palestine stands poised on the brink of full-blown revolt.
