When and how did the Palestinians become a people? Through the use of different theories on the formation of nations we seek to investigate when and how a shared Palestinian national identity arose. According to the method of inductive reasoning we have used different historians and sociologists to shed a light on the historical period from the start of the 20th century and until 1967. We then combined our knowledge with nationalism theories formulated by Benedict Anderson and Anthony D. Smith, supported by the theory of Orientalism by Edward Said, to discuss which historical dynamics were important in the formation process of the Palestinian people. The overwhelming zionist immigration and the British colonial policies made it necessary for the Palestinian people to unite as one to prevent the loss of their homeland. This led to the Arab Revolt from 1936 to '39 where the identity of the Palestinian people surfaced in it's most definite form so far. The consequences of the Nakba in 1948 and the following years of exile eradicated the boundaries between the different layers of the society and a common vernacular memory was established which finally defined the Palestinian people.
