The Palestinian Islamist (Muslim political) movement HAMAS (Harakat al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyyah, "Islamic Resistance Movement") marked the twenty-second anniversary of its founding yesterday with a massive rally in Gaza City which was attended by tens of thousands of its supporters. The rally suggests that the movement remains an influential player in Palestinian politics despite its political and military setbacks since coming to power in early 2006. HAMAS has governed the Gaza Strip since defeating its chief political rival, the Fatah movement, which was founded by the late Yasir 'Arafat, during the first half of 2007 and driving them from Gaza. HAMAS and Fatah fought a short but bitter and bloody war in Gaza, with a reported Fatah coup attempt being preempted by HAMAS.
