This chapter describes the popular support for Palestinians in Iraq, Syria, and Egypt, and the consequent policies and pronouncements of the respective governments. In Iraq, widespread demonstrations erupted in support of the 1936 Palestinian general strike, which became so widespread that the Iraqi government hastened to impose a ban on all demonstrations. Popular support for the Palestinian cause was no less fierce in Syria. Strikes and demonstrations occurred frequently, accompanied by violently anti-Zionist and anti-British pamphlets and petitions. In its popular reaction to the Palestinian revolt, Egypt was not different from Iraq or Syria. The convening of the Congress in Cairo, and the anti-British undercurrents which it displayed at a time when the British held an unquestionable position of influence in the country, is a testimony to the strength of the pro-Palestinian sentiments sweeping Egypt in the wake of the Arab revolt.

Keywords:   Palestinian revolt, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Iraqi government, anti-Zionist, anti-British, Arab revolt
