Hamas: The Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood

Part of the The Middle East in Focus book series (MEF)


Palestinian Islamic politics have been dominated in the past three decades by the Muslim Brotherhood, later known as the Hamas. With its seizure of the Gaza Strip, Hamas came to be a virtual government, competing for leadership of all Palestinians on a near-equal basis with Fatah and its Palestinian Authority (PA) regime. Thus, Hamas can be said to be the only Muslim Brotherhood group in the world that also forms a government and rules over large numbers of people.
