“A Hidden Hand” or “Arab Gangs”: The Turkish Press’s View of the Beginning of the 1936-1939 Revolt In Palestine

Gülsüm POLAT [1]


Protests, civil disobedience, cases of plunder and similar events that broke out in Palestine in April 1936 are regarded as a significant turning point for Palestinian history and Arab-Jewish relations. This study discusses how these Palestine-related events were covered and evaluated in the newspapers Akşam, Cumhuriyet, Tan, Ulus, Son Posta, and Yeni Asır. It aims to assess the place of Palestine-related events in the Turkish newspapers’ coverage of the incidents of that period, and to examine whether they questioned the recent history of the old imperial geography when interpreting the contemporary events there.
