#tbt: On April 21, 1936, the #ArabRevolt against the #BritishMandate began with a strike in #Nablus, #Palestine where my grandfather was stationed.
The British Mandate had more than doubled the European Jewish population in Palestine in the 1930's alone. Palestinian labor force, shopkeepers and transportation workers went on strike, demanding ending the forcible transfer of confiscated land from Palestinians to European Jewish immigrants.
p.s. I guess that mustache was really in style back then!
