Analysis: Khaled Mashaal’s Next Career Move


Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal

Mohammed Najib analyses the possibility by Khaled Mishaal, chief of Hamas’ political bureau, to quit his position. His move would come at a moment where Hamas, in the light of the Arab spring and consequent shifts in power, reviews its strategy and even ideology. Mashal has recently been pushing for a more moderate stance in politics, and Palestinian security sources as well as political analysts say it is very likely he will opt to head a newly established Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. While the US are ready to cooperate with the MB in Egypt in Tunisia, Mashal might see this as a new chance to get recognition as well. Meanwhile, sources in Hamas say that the Islamist movement will do everything it can to keep Mashal in their organisation.
