The Palestinian Communist Party was a communist party in Palestine 1922-1923. It was born through a split in the Jewish Communist Party (the other factions formed the Communist Party of Palestine). A major difference between the two parties was the attitude towards Zionism. The Communist Party of Palestine was more staunch in its condemnation of Zionism, whereas the Palestinian Communist Party was open towards some degree of cooperation with Zionists.

In 1923, the two parties merged, forming the unified Palestine Communist Party.
