In 1834, for the first time in Palestine's history, people from across the country and from all segments of society came together in rebellion against what they considered to be oppressive policies decreed from above—in the event, military conscription, disarmament policies, and other “reforms” imposed on them by Muhammad 'Ali Pasha and his son, Ibrahim. The Palestinian people's absence from accounts of their history cannot be ascribed merely to Eurocentric or Zionist narratives, but also to what Arabs themselves wrote about the land and its people under the Ottomans. This chapter's intention is not to analyze the details of the event so much as to present a critical analysis of how past and present generations have written about it.

Keywords:   Palestine, rebellion, disarmament policies, Ibrahim, Eurocentric
