This study examines the magnitude of the potential impact of the global financial crisis on the companies listed in Palestine stock exchange  and its effects on the Palestinian economy. And that mainly  by knowing,  if the  period after the crisis  debt ,liquidity ,growth ,turnover ratios  is not significantly differing from pre-crisis era. To achieve the objectives of the study, a sample of 23 Palestinians companies listed at Palestine stock exchange was studied. The study covered the period from the period before the global financial crisis   (2006, 2007) and the period after the global financial crisis (2009, 2010). T-Tests and Mann-Whitney-U Tests were used to test the ninth hypotheses of the study. It was concluded that the impact of the global financial crisis is limited. Which means there are no differences after the financial crisis compared to   the pre- financial crisis variables.
