He describes the humble beginnings of the Al Qassam Brigades, Hamas's military wing, and their growth from a few disparate cells into a force estimated at 18, Chehab views the conflict through the eyes of common Palestinians, as well as those of martyrs and their families.
He describes how Hamas recruits and employs suicide attackers, how the Israel intelligence services and other organizations penetrated Hamas, and how killing informants led to a continuing cycle of violence. Although Hamas' structure has evolved, it refuses to recognize the state of Israel and seeks to reclaim Palestine. An unknown error has occurred.

Sep 04, Maya Abdelhamid added it. I read this book for my History EE research. It was very useful to my specific topic but other than that, it was interesting to see the view of the author on such events. The author met with many important figures and had met them multiple times and he gave an account of what their conversations about and the history of the organization.

I enjoyed reading this for research as well. This book is very journalistic and is more a less a compilation of articles dealing with the history of Hamas's politics and militarization from the s through to There are innumerable names of assassinated militants, nefarious Israeli operations, and internecine Palestinian turf wars.
This is not a work that will stand the test of time it is poorly edited and more descriptive than it is analytical , but the conclusion that Hamas can not simply be liquidated through violence and that t This book is very journalistic and is more a less a compilation of articles dealing with the history of Hamas's politics and militarization from the s through to This is not a work that will stand the test of time it is poorly edited and more descriptive than it is analytical , but the conclusion that Hamas can not simply be liquidated through violence and that the West will have to engage with this political force is true enough.
Informative if some what depressing.

I didn't know about Israel's role in its formation or really understand the difference between it and the PLO before reading this. In the light of recent events I'm not surprised Palestinians feel that Hamas offers hope but it is a depressing indictment of the situation currently.
Reading this and corresponding information on the Jewish perspective makes me think that there is no solution available that will satisfy both sides. Feb 24, Dina Nady rated it liked it.

A great, objective history and analysis of Hamas. Extremely impressive for a subject matter which, to this point at least, has not been the focal point of many authors.
