About this Item

Contents: 1. Introduction . 2. HAMAS : Evolution and Identities. 3. Israeli Occupation and Oppressive Fateh. 4. "Islamic" Political Choices and the "unchosen" Fateh. 5. Legitimate Resistance and Illegitimate Violence. 6. Conclusion. This book provides a rare insight into the ideological underpinnings of HAMAS by analyzing the daily Arabic communiqués of HAMAS as addressed to its local constituencies. The author succeeds in establishing the centrality of violence in forming and legitimising the social identity of HAMAS. A central argument in the book is that HAMAS is a victim of its own ideology, and is thus trapped in its self-image. The book covers the period from 2005 to 2009, a period of acute conflict between local Palestinian actors, and between HAMAS and Israel. This period also witnessed the consolidation of HAMAS as an indispensable player against the backdrop of distinct political polarisation of Palestinian politics. Politicians and practitioners will benefit from this book as it provides a solid understanding of the ideological and power dynamics of HAMAS and its self-image. To what extent religion was employed by HAMAS as a tool against its own local Palestinian rivals; and how human rights were used to justify violent resistance against Israel are the major contributions of this book.
