Abstract This article explores the advantages and disadvantages for Arab democratization of the political integration of Islamist movements. Because of the vastness of the subject I will focus on only one such organization, namely the Palestinian Hamas. In the course of the paper I will analyze Hamas' origins, structure and ideology and reasons for seeking political inclusion. The paper concludes with an in-depth evaluation of Hamas' actions once it managed to acquire political power, namely their overall impact on the peace process and on Palestinian democratization.
