The aim of this study is to shed light on the economic conditions in Palestine and the extent of their impact on the circumstances of the Second World War in the period from 1939 to 1945. It is clear that since the Balfour Declaration of 1917 Palestine has passed through political occurences that have influenced many of its life aspects. The Palestinian resistance to the Mandate and Zionism has escalated from protest to establishing political parties and then to armed movements. The great Palestinian revolution that broke out in1936 was the biggest local event in Palestine. It was a threeyear-old revolution that only breathed its last breath after World War I broke out on September 1, 1939. This revolution left its significant imprint on the different aspects of life due to the fact that many sectors of the Palestinian society were engaged in it. When the revolution stopped, the internal situation in Palestine was at its worst. As a result, the Arabs of Palestine turned to themselves and tried to improve their conditions economically in a difficult local and international context.
