Mariam Ali
14 September 2014

Resistance movement, terrorist organisation, political partner, sole obstacle to or guarantor of peace; these are just some of the faces of and designations for Hamas. Whatever it is or is not, it has been a major player in Israel-Palestine - whether or not this is acknowledged. This timeline of articles from the oD archives traces the evolution of Hamas from its (perhaps not-so) surprising landslide election win in 2006 to present, as well as situating it in a broader context and providing an overview of some of the ways in which it has been written about.


Why we're suing over the £23m NHS data deal with 'spy tech' firm Palantir

Get the inside story from the journalists and lawyers battling to force transparency from the government on what they're doing with public money – and our health records.
