Hamas is an Palestinian Sunni Islamic or Islamist organization located in the Palestinian territories.Based on the principles of Islamic fundamentalism gaining momentum throughout the Arab world in the 1980s, Hamas was founded in 1987 as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.The group's short-term aim has been to drive Israeli forces from the occupied territories.
