Social Developments in the Palestine Mandate
- Peasants had a difficult time finding land to farm in the mandate. This further created a larger gap between social classes in Palestine.
- A substantial portion of the population was excluded from the economic development in the mandate.
- "Violent social clashes shook the Palestine Mandate in 1929, opposing Jews and Arabs"
- Arabs feared that the Jewish population was growing too rapidly and would eventually over become too powerful.
