British Mandate in Palestine“The impetus given to the country’s economic development by Jewish  capital conferred certain benefits on the Arab community. The Government was able to expand its services, in the interest of the whole population, by means of revenue drawn in an increasing proportion from the Jewish taxpayer. AND THE ARAB CULTIVATOR BENEFITED FROM THE EXPANSION OF THE URBAN MARKET FOR HIS PRODUCE. NOR COULD IT BE SHOWN THAT THE PURCHASE OF LAND BY JEWS HAD DRIVEN ANY APPRECIABLE NUMBER OF ARAB CULTIVATORS OUT OF AGRICULTURE.”
