The Scout movement started in Palestine in 1912. The Palestinian Scout Association (اتحاد الكشافة الفلسطيني) was recognized by the World Scout Bureau in 1945. Official recognition was given by the World Scout Conference in 1996, and the Palestinian Scout Association serves youth throughout the Palestinian Authority. The headquarters are in Ramallah in the West Bank, and the International Commissioner is Dr. Fayeq H. Tahboub.
The Scout Motto is "Kun Musta'idan" or كن مستعدًا, translating as "Be Prepared" in Arabic. The noun for a single Scout is kaššaf or كشاف in Arabic.
