Excerpt, Blood Feud Chapter 8:
Hamas was founded in 1987, soon after the First Intifada broke out, as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
Hamas is considered the military/terror arm of the Muslim Brotherhood – the name comes from the Hebrew word ‘chamas’ pronounced with an ‘h’ and means violence.
President Obama gave the Muslim Brotherhood legitimacy by inviting them to his 2009 Cairo speech. The Brotherhood, which sponsors the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), had a seat at the table in the Obama administration from 2009.
