This document.. was originally a paper presented by Mr Khalid Mishaal, the Chief of the Political Bureau of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) at a conference convened by Al-Zaytouna Centre for Studies & Consultations, Beirut, on 28-29 November 2012 under the title: “The Islamists in the Arab World and the Palestinian Issue, In Light of the Arab Uprisings,”. After the conference, Mr Mishaal edited and updated the paper and sent it to al-Zaytouna recently for publication. The paper could be considered as an important document of Hamas thought. It explores Hamas’ vision for the Palestinian issue, and the practical application of the movement’s stances and concepts. Mishaal discusses the “Arab Spring” and its impact on the issue, in addition to Hamas’s role and potential challenges. Finally, Mishaal discusses the challenges and problems facing the Arab Spring in its various countries. The document was then translated into English language by the Middle East Monitor (MEMO).
