Most Palestinian groups and parties, including Hamas, are national liberation movements very much opposed to radical organizations such as Al-Qaeda, which seek to instate Islamic rule on what they see as Islamic land.
Hizb Ut-Tahrir’s aims are similar to Al-Qaeda’s, except that the movement exclusively advocates nonviolent struggle to establish the Islamic nation.
