On May 26, 2009, an Islamist forum posted an article by
Abu Hamza Al-Maqdisi, an anonymous yet active writer in the Islamist forums who
posts regularly about Hamas and its persistent struggle to uproot the salafi
movement in Gaza.
The article, posted on a Islamist forum and titled "The Salafiyya of Gaza, Its Ideological
Predicament, and Its Obscure Future"paints a gloomy picture
of the salafi movement in Gaza. Abu Hamza, himself an adherent of the
salafi-jihadi doctrine in Gaza, criticizes the salafi-jihadi groups for being
unwilling to make concessions in order to unite under one banner and allow the
spread of the doctrine in Gaza.
