This study aims to identify the nature of the administrative and legal procedures that the British Mandate applied to the Palestinian Municipalities during the British Mandate in Palestine between 1917 - 1948, that has resulted in the establishment of the Zionist State of Israel on the greatest and major part of the Palestinian homeland. The study shows that the British administration restricted the power of the Palestinian Municipalities through issuing laws and regulations by the British governor. Consequently, these municipalities were brought under the control of the British administration and its supportive policy to the Jewish Zionist State. This was achieved through sparking the differences between the tribes, while providing the Jewish Municipalities with all means of support. The study concludes that the British administration exploited the Palestinian municipalities to hire people, who are loyal to this administration, to facilitate its mission in establishing a homeland for the Jews in Palestine.
