The great Arab revolt disintegrated late in 1939. The rebel leadership tried to cope with its military and political failure by initiating a new round of attacks on “traitors.” . These were the rebellion's final gasps. As the signs of its passing became concrete, more and more Arabs from all walks of life began reestablishing their ties with Jews. The strictures imposed by the rebellion were no longer obeyed. The World War II years were a relatively easy period for Zionist intelligence and for land purchases. True, collaborators continued to be hounded by Palestinian nationalists, and even dominant figures could not move without bodyguards. But the major harm they suffered was in the social sphere. A significant change took place toward the end of the war, when the Palestinian Arab national movement reorganized itself.
