Fatah is a secular, moderate group which is bound by Israeli interest through the Oslo Accords. Fatah promotes the two-state solution as well as the feasibility of reconciliation with Israel. Fatah wants a Palestinian state in the inhabited Gaza strips and West Bank. Fatah's brigades are not as violent and extreme, while Hamas is a religious extremist group, which is labeled as a terrorist organization.

Hamas rejects the two-state solution, and it advocates for the demolition of Israel. Hamas wants a Palestinian state circumscribing the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jerusalem, and Israel. Mahmud Abbas is the current president of Palestine, while Hamas has little control or power over the government. Fatah was developed in the 1950s, while Hamas was established in 1987.
