Inside Hamas, UK Channel 4 Documentary

Aired: February 10, 2008 on Channel 4 Hamas, the ‘Islamic Resistance Movement’, is now 20 years old. Seen by the EU and US as a ‘terrorist organization,’ it won internationally recognized elections to rule the Palestinian Authority in January 2006. The newly elected government was not recognized by most of the world and a financial and trade embargo by Israel and the international community followed, starving the Hamas government of any funding and the governmental legitimacy it craved.

Some say Hamas was set up by Israeli intelligence. The likelihood is that Israeli intelligence have penetrated its ranks, just as the British MI6 did the IRA: and to some considerable extent. As we all know, one man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter.
