The Muslim brotherhood’s perception of Israel

Shaul Bartal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The establishment of the State of Israel symbolised the beginning of a new era in the relationship between Muslims and Jews and sparked a religious conflict that has continued to date. This article examines the main precepts underlying the rejection of the idea of Jewish statehood/nationhood by the Muslim Brotherhood, perhaps the largest and most influential Islamist movement in the post-World War I era.
