Basic Information

"The Palestinian Islamic Jihad was created after some members of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood believed that the organization did not commit enough effort to prevent Israel from occupying Palestinian territories.  In 1979, after being inspired by the 1979 Iranian Revolution, Fathi Shaqaq and Abd al-Aziz Awada founded the group to fight for the sovereignty of Palestine and freedom from Israel."
