Abstract

The article is based on a thesis according to which repressive and excluding state policies may contribute to a radicalisation of political Islamic movements, while inclusion and accommodation may have an opposite effect — moderation of Islamists. The paper transposes the 'inclusive-moderation' hypothesis of the ruling regimes in the Middle East to the international community and argues that the choice of the policy external players apply on Islamists in the region may affect the scope of the moderation or radicalisation of the Islamists. The analysis draws attention to the international engagement in the region with respect to recent developments in the Palestinian Territories following Hamas's landslide victory in the parliamentary election in 2006.
