All three of these groups are Jihadist terrorist organizations with a number of discernible characteristics. The most common and identifiable Muslim terrorist action is the suicide bomber who blows himself up to take out some enemies as well as himself. Muslim terrorist organizations tell their membership that the fight in which they are engaged is part of the holy Islamic struggle of Jihad and anyone who opposes them is not properly guided. Therefore, Muslim terrorist organizations will identify what sect of Islam they belong to and whether or not they oppose the other sects. Most Muslim terrorists wish to inspire fear in their enemies and therefore primarily attack civilians, considering them part of the enemy. Some "moderate" non-associated clerics have defended these activities claiming that the civilians represent part of the group that "is opposed to Islam". Since Muslim terrorists exist in countries with a weak internal support structure, in many cases such as with Hezbollah, Hamas, or Fatah, they will use their own funds to build schools, parks, hospitals, and other social services in the communities they occupy. It provides goodwill with the local inhabitants and allows them to more effectively spread whatever messages they may wish to say. Finally, Muslim terrorist organizations like Hezbollah, Hamas, and Fatah have all actively engaged in elections (Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas and Fatah in Palestine) with their own political parties. If the governments formed after these elections were not desirable to these parties, they engaged in military actions to force the national government to capitulate to their desires. In the case of Hezbollah this created a violent stand-off in Beirut and in the case of Hamas and Fatah, this prompted a Palestinian Civil War in Gaza and the West Bank.

Hezbollah in Lebonan and Hamas in Palestine


Hezbollah is directly supported by the Iranian and Syrian governments and Hezbollah also has a strong alliance with Hamas.


Hamas was the clear victor over Fatah in the 2006 Palestinian Elections, but Fatah refused to concede them the election, knowing that Israel would not allow Hamas to rule the Palestinian Authority.


Which one are you referring to, as there are several major ones: Hezbollah Hamas Islamic Jihad Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade PLEP DPLP Portions of Fatah (the majority is willing to negotiate)


Not really.There was one major vote in Palestinian history, in 2006, when Hamas defeated Fatah in national elections. Due to both a desire to retain power and knowledge of Israel's stance on Hamas, Fatah violently opposed the ascendancy of Hamas. This resulted in the Palestinian Civil War of 2007 and the Gaza Strip under Hamas control and the West Bank under Fatah control. The Gaza Strip is governed by Hamas as an authoritarian state and no further elections have taken place there. In the West Bank, Fatah has repeatedly, illegally delayed elections because they believe (correctly) that an election would result in Hamas being victorious in the West Bank and Fatah would rather hold onto power.


they are a bunch of twits singing to the destruction of Gaza and the palestinian people. No resistance likee the true Muslims Hamas Fatah =corruption


Answer 1Hezbollah is against doctors and hospitals in the middle east because of the abuses that go on there by medical staff,forced medical treatment without the persons consent and other things that cannot be mentioned here.Hezbollah has always tried to change the unjust regeime that is Lebanon and protect the people.But Hamas is not helping the people and is working more for self gain.It has done nothing to protect the people of Gaza from Israel and there have been cases of Hamas the Government using torture in their prisons.Answer 2Religion: The clearest difference between Hamas and Hezbollah is that the former identifies as Sunni Islamists and the latter as Shiite Islamists. (Note: Islamist IS NOT a synonym of Muslim, it is a specific political term.) Islamic terrorist organizations tell their membership that the fight in which they are engaged is part of the holy Islamic struggle of Jihad and anyone who opposes them is not properly guided. Therefore, Muslim terrorist organizations will identify what sect of Islam they belong to and whether or not they oppose the other sects. Hamas and Hezbollah have both put out broadcasts claiming that Muslims of the other sects (Shiites for Hamas and Sunnis for Hezbollah) are Kuffar (Unbelievers) and will be punished by God for their sin.Social Welfare: Hamas and Hezbollah exist in countries with a weak internal support structure, in many cases such as with Hezbollah and Hamas they will use their own funds to build schools, parks, hospitals, and other social services in the communities they occupy. It provides goodwill with the local inhabitants and allows them to more effectively spread whatever messages they may wish to say. Since Hamas operates in the Gaza Strip, its institutions are there. Since Hezbollah operates in Lebanon and Syria, it builds its institutions there. Contrary to Answer 1, Hezbollah actually does build hospitals and fund medicine.Politics: Hezbollah and Hamas have actively engaged in elections with Hezbollah running in Lebanon and Hamas running in Palestine with their own political parties. If the governments formed after these elections were not desirable to these parties, they engaged in military actions to force the national government to capitulate to their desires. In the case of Hezbollah this created a violent stand-off in Beirut and in the case of Hamas, this prompted a Palestinian Civil War in Gaza and the West Bank to overthrow Fatah.


There are a number of similarities between Hezbollah and Hamas, which are two paramilitary organizations with terrorist, political, and welfare wings.

There are many more than four, but the four most prominent are: Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad, and al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. While Hezbollah is popular, it is a Lebanese and Syrian group more than a Palestinian group.


Hamas and Hezbollah are Arab Muslim Terrorist and Paramilitary Organizations.

Therefore, Hamas and Hezbollah will identify what sect of Islam they belong to and whether or not they oppose the other sects.

Answer 1Hamas originates primarily from Palestine.Hezbollah originates primarily from Lebanon.Both organizations are considered terrorist groups by the US & Israel.Answer 2There are a few major differences between the two groups:Religious Affiliation and ProselytismHamas: Hamas considers itself Sunni and does not see proselytism as terribly important as the overwhelming majority of Palestinians are Sunni Muslims.Hezbollah: Hezbollah considers itself to be Shiite Muslim and operates in countries where Shiites are a minority (primarily Syria and Lebanon). Therefore Hezbollah actively tries to proselytize Shiite Islam to the Sunni Muslim population.Methods of Government ControlHamas: Hamas militants have actually evicted the de jure Palestinian Authority Government after issues in setting up a multi-party state. Hamas maintains sole control of the Gaza Strip and has no representation in any government outside of the Gaza Strip. Hamas is headquartered in Damascus, yet has no say in the Syrian governmentHezbollah: Hezbollah is an active part of both the Lebanese and Syrian regimes where it operates. It has government ministers in Lebanon that serve alongside other Shiite and non-Shiite confessional representatives. However, when things did not go according to Hezbollah's desires, they rioted in central Beirut. In Syria, it has committed members to operating alongside the Shiite Alawite Regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Hezbollah considers itself part of governments, but not exclusively.Territories of OperationHamas: While Hamas headquarters are in Damascus, the organization spends most of its time and effort in Palestine (and attacks into Israel).Hezbollah: Hezbollah spends the majority of its efforts domestically in Syria and Lebanon and occasionally attacks Israel.Military HardwareHamas: Hamas has a large variety of simple rockets, equipped pick-up trucks, and knowledge of how to assemble bombs. Hamas can effectively fight guerrilla wars and thug-type engagements, but does not have aircraft, armored cars, or missile weaponry.Hezbollah: Hezbollah has all of the types of armaments that Hamas has, but does have armored cars, simple tanks, long-range Soviet missiles and other more established military technologies. Hezbollah operates more like an under-equipped private army than an over-equipped guerrilla organization.


Israelis fear Hezbollah's capabilities more than they fear Hamas's capabilities since Hezbollah has superior numbers, better training, and superior weaponry. However, Israelis fear Hamas more because Hamas is a persistent threat whereas Hezbollah has other issues on its radar, such as maintaining power in Lebanon, fighting to support Assad in Syria, and Iranian sloganeering.


Irish Republican Army (IRA), Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, Hamas


HEZBOLLAHBlack October, Hamas, and the PFLP are all Palestinian militant organizations. Hamas and PFLP primarily operate in the Palestinian Territories and Black October used to operate in Jordan, but was populated by Palestinians. Hezbollah is a Lebanese and Syrian militant organization which operates completely outside of the Palestinian Territories and uses primarily Lebanese and Syrians to swell its ranks.


Hamas refuses to recognize Israel whereas the previous Palestinian party in power, Fatah, is willing to recognize Israel and negotiate with them to degree. Therefore, when Hamas replaced Fatah as the legitimate government of the Palestinians by elections in 2006, Israeli relations with the Palestinian Authority soured in anticipation of the more doggedly Anti-Israel stance of Hamas.


The Palestinian Civil War began in 2006, after Hamas's electoral victory over the incumbent Fatah party and has continued, politically and sometimes militarily up to this day. At that point, Fatah was unwilling to completely surrender power to Hamas. Hamas became increasingly agitated and violence erupted between the militant wings of these two parties as to who should have the right to control Palestine. The brunt of this fight occurred in the summer of 2007 when Hamas forcibly ejected Fatah from the Gaza Strip. Fatah, meanwhile, was able to prevent a Hamas takeover in the West Bank. This resulted in the split of Palestinian Authority into two polities, both seeing themselves the true representatives of the Palestinian people - the Fatah ruled Palestinian National Authority in the West Bank and the Hamas Government in Gaza. The two groups have attempted to reconcile, but at this point it comes down to the fact that neither group wishes to step down from power in favor of the other and that Hamas refuses to accept the Oslo Accords as a basis for dealing with Israel while Fatah does.

Mostly Sunnis But many of them are converting to shia because of seeing successes of Shia Hezbollah.


Syria support, Hezbollah, Hamas, Iraqi resistance, and all freedom fighters in this world.


Strange as it seems to most of us in the West, Hamas was democratically elected in 2006. Their campaign was that would (1) be less corrupt than Fatah - the reigning party at the time, (2) they would provide medical assistance and school programs, (3) they would have a much more aggressive tone against Israel. All three of these points made them more desirable than Fatah to the Palestinian people. However, after the election victory, Fatah was unwilling to cede power to Hamas. This led to the Gazan Civil War of 2007, where Hamas forcibly ejected Fatah from the Gaza Strip, but was unable to do so in the West Bank since the Palestinian controlled areas are non-contiguous.


The three most feared Palestinian Terrorist Groups are Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.Fatah and Hezbollah are more famous than Islamic Jihad and Al-Aqsa Martyrs but do not qualify for the title "Palestinian Terrorist Group". In the case of Fatah, it has abandoned its major militant wing in favor for a more moderated police force, making it no longer a terrorist group. In the case of Hezbollah, it is primarily Syrian and Lebanese, not Palestinian.


i don't know that anyone does. now if you said muslim,islamic,taliban,hamas,fatah
