After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Hassan al-Banna, in Egypt, in 1928, founded the Muslim Brotherhood, also called Muslim Brethren or The Society of the Muslim Brothers. He blamed western influence for the end of the Caliphate in Turkey. As stated by al-Banna, “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

In 1928, Banna formed the Muslim Brotherhood in response to the declining state of Islam which he believed was due to the ineffective teachings of scholars and their failure to preserve Islam in its purest state. By the 1930s the Brotherhood had achieved significant popularity and had established branches all over Egypt and by the end of the 1930s, it stretched throughout the Middle east and had more than a half a million active members, it had become a significant political entity.

Growing support for the Brotherhood was a threat to both the rulers of Egypt and the British. Due to the declining popularity of the Egyptian government and the fear of a coup, the organization was banned on December 28,1948, when a Muslim Brother assassinated Egyptian Prime Minister Hahmud Fahmi Nokrashi. Its funds were confiscated and most of its members were imprisoned. On February 12, 1949, Banna was shot and killed in Cairo by two assassins thought to be government agents.


Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, founded by Hassan al-Banna in March 1928

From the Muslim Brotherhood’s mission statement:
“Allah is our objective; the Quran our constitution; the Prophet is our leader; struggle is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”

With the 1924 collapse of the Ottoman Empire in Turkey and the rise of a new secular government led by Ataturk, the Islamic Caliphate came to an end. Reacting to the loss of the Caliphate, two major Islamic movements were born, the Wahabi sect in Saudi Arabia and the “al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen”, the Society of Muslim Brothers, founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna. Its stated purpose from the outset was shariah law and the restoration of the Islamic Caliphate.

The Brotherhood through Egyptian Islamic Jihad was involved in the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981 in retaliation for the signing of the Camp David Accords with Israel.

Some of the best known Islamic Terrorists have been members of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman, was a close student of Sayyid Qutb, a leading member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Ayman al-Zawahiri started in the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic Jihad before joining Osama Bin Laden in Al Qaeda.

The Organization and Policies of a Global Islamist Movement

About this book:
The Muslim Brotherhood is the oldest and most important international Islamist group. Aside from strong organizations in Egypt, Jordan, Syria—where it provides the main opposition—and its Palestinian offshoot Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip, the Brotherhood has become active in Europe and North America.

Hamas: The Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood
Hillel Frisch

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.

Former Jordanian Minister:
Hamas Is A Branch Of The Muslim Brotherhood, Not A Palestinian National Liberation Movement

In a December 6, 2018 article in the London-based daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, Saleh Al-Qallab, a former Jordanian minister and currently a columnist for the government daily Al-Rai, contested the claim that Hamas is a Palestinian national liberation movement.[1] Qallab wrote that Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the global Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organization and acts on the orders of this organization, of Qatar and of MB ideologue Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradawi. He added that Hamas is part of a regional axis that includes Iran, Turkey, Qatar, the Assad regime, Hizbullah, the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) and the Houthis in Yemen. Had Hamas really been a Palestinian liberation movement, he said, it would not have impeded the reconciliation efforts with Fatah and fought to maintain its separate rule in Gaza, and would not have consistently sided with Qatar, Iran and the MB while turning its back on Saudi Arabia.

الكتلة الإسلامية في فلسطين هي الجناح الطلابي لحركة المقاومة الإسلامية (حماس)، يتخذ من الجامعات والمدارس مركزاً لنشاطاته، وتعرف نفسها بأنها تجمع طلابي فلسطيني يتبنى التصور الإسلامي الشامل في المجالات التربوية والنقابية والاجتماعية والثقافية والرياضية، ويستمد أفكاره وتصوراته ومفاهيمه من الإسلام على منهج أهل السنة والجماعة، فالإسلام إطاره ومحوره الثابتين، وإلى الإسلام يحتكم في كل تصرفاته، ويؤمن بأن الإسلام هو الحل لكافة قضايانا ومشاكلنا، وأن لا نهضة لنا ولا عزة إلا بالإسلام، فيحمل رسالة الإسلام داخل الجامعة ويدعو إلى الإسلام عقيدة ومنهجًا وأسلوبًا في الحياة. وتعتبر نفسها امتداد فكري للحركة الإسلامية في فلسطين، وتؤمن برؤية الحركة الإسلامية في شتى جوانب الحياة السياسية والاجتماعية والثقافية والاقتصادية وغيرها،وتتمتع بإطار تنظيمي مستقل لأن حركة حماس هي تنظيم جهادي سياسي والكتلة الإسلامية هي جسم نقابي وهكذا فإن العلاقة بوضوح هي أن الكتلة امتداد فكري لحماس شأنها شأن بقية التنظـيمات الفلسطينية الأخرى التي لها امتداداتها الفكرية والطلابية.[1]

The Islamic Bloc in Palestine is the student wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), which is based on universities and schools as the center of its activities, and defines itself as a Palestinian student group that adopts the comprehensive Islamic perception in the fields of education, trade union, social, cultural and sports, and draws Islam is its framework and its fixed axis, and Islam is in control of all its actions, and believes that Islam is the solution to all our issues and problems, and that there is no renaissance for us and no pride except Islam, it carries the message of Islam within the university and calls for Islam is a faith, a method and a way of life. It considers itself an intellectual extension of the Islamic movement in Palestine, believes in the vision of the Islamic movement in various aspects of political, social, cultural, economic and other life, and enjoys an independent organizational framework because Hamas is a political jihadist organization and the Islamic bloc is a trade union body and so the relationship Clearly, the bloc is an intellectual extension of Hamas, as do other Palestinian organizations that have intellectual and student extensions.

The ‘Islamic Bloc’: Inculcating Hamas Ideology In Gaza Schools

By: L. Barkan

… the “Islamic Bloc,” which started out as Hamas’s student organization, active at Gaza colleges and universities, but which over the years has extended its activity to schools, from the high school level down through the elementary school level. The Islamic Bloc also has a presence in the West Bank, but on a much smaller scale, and only among college students.

The Islamic Bloc coordinates and cooperates with Hamas and its administration in the Gaza Strip, and offers a variety of educational, cultural, social and sports activities for young people. Through these activities, its activists inculcate Hamas’s ideology and also give participants physical and weapons training to prepare them for resistance actions. The organization has an active website, and its various branches have Facebook pages that report on their activities in different parts of the Strip and in different educational facilities, attesting to their widespread presence in educational institutions throughout Gaza.

The Islamic Bloc website clarifies its relationship with Hamas: “The Islamic Bloc is a Palestinian student organization that adopts the total Islamic perspective on education, unions, society, culture and sports. It is an ideological extension of the Islamic movement in Palestine [i.e. Hamas], and endorses this movement’s views in all domains of life: politics, society, culture, economics, etc. It has an independent organizational framework, because Hamas is a political jihadi organization… whereas [the Islamic Bloc] is a union…”

Members of Hamas and the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades have been active in the Islamic Bloc since the 1980s, including Hamas Prime Minister Isma’il Haniya and Al-Qassam founding member Yahya ‘Ayyash.

The Islamic Bloc also supports the armed struggle of Hamas’s militant wing, the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades. This is reflected, for example, in an article on the Islamic Bloc’s website devoted to Sheikh ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam, after whom the brigades are named, which states: “Decades after the mujahid Sheikh ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam sacrificed his life on the blessed soil of Palestine, we find that the correct proposal regarding the [Palestinian] cause is the one proposed and carried out by ‘Izz Al-Din: [namely the idea of] Islam and armed struggle… [Today] we see that the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades are the ones bearing the burden of the conflict, and that ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam’s way is the way chosen by the sons of Palestine: [namely the way of] Islam, revolution, and armed struggle – while many [others] have fallen into the quagmire of coexistence with the Jews.”

Above, an image on the Facebook page of the Islamic Bloc in the eastern Gaza Strip, captioned “The ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades,” depicts an Islamic conquest of the Al-Aqsa mosque in a military action. Above the caption is the Al-Qassam Brigades’ symbol.

Above, from the Facebook page of the Islamic Bloc in the southern Gaza Strip. The middle sign reads: “The Occupier Was Defeated And The Resistance Was Victorious,” and features the symbols of Hamas and of the Al-Qassam Brigades

… the Islamic Bloc also acts in the wider Arab and Islamic arena … the Islamic Bloc attended … events outside the Palestinian territories … one was the first conference of the Muslim Brotherhood Youth in Syria, which took place in Istanbul …

Prior to August 2020, the Hamas and Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades websites had a green banner at the top of their home page. This is how the home page of Hamas’ TV station, al-Aqsa TV, appeared on March 16, 2020:

Note the green banner at the top of the page:

The green banner contained an embedded URL that linked to the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades website. Clicking on the green banner would open this webpage:

This was a fund raising scheme utilizing cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, to underwrite its terrorism (“resistance”). Note that the solicitation is in English. This would indicate that the fund raising scheme not only targeted Arabic speaking countries but English speaking western countries as well, such as the U.S.

In August 2020, the U.S. government seized the website, funds and assets:


The original Humanize Palestine website memorialized Hamas and al-Qassam Brigades terror operatives, Ziad Maher Mohammad al-Najjar was one example. In their own words, they honored the deceased terror operatives as martyrs by bringing them back to life through their pictures, stories, art, and poetry.

Now the victims of these terror operatives have been honored. The U.S. Department of Justice has seized al-Qassam Brigades assets, funds and websites, used to finance their terror campaigns. The monies will be directed to the United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund.
