This paper aims at examining the character of Musa Kazim al-Husayni’s as a national leader that appeared with the advent of British occupation, and after coming into office as Jerusalem mayor. He collided with British authorities that removed him from office, after which he led a Nationalist Palestinian Movement, Nationalist Congresses and Executive Committee. He also led all Palestinian delegations everywhere around the world, and was exceptional in adopting the political approach of action, not the violent one. The researcher adopts the descriptive analytical approaches to shed light on this great character. al-Husayni later realized that this approach is ineffective, but managed to thwart some plans made by the British and moved the whole issue to Europe’s capitals. He was the safety valve of the Palestinian Nationalist Movement, despite being a reason for internal conflict, but gained everyone’s trust nevertheless. His death signaled the fading of executive committee and national congresses; the most important nationalist movement foundations. The researcher proved that al-Husayni was a unique example of national struggle during that time, where his death was the end of a time and the beginning of a new era for the Palestinian Nationalist Movement.
