(Hamas as a Social Movement) https://fas.org/irp/world/para/docs/930100.htm
Do you agree that a group that engages in terrorist acts can be seen as a social movement? Why or why not? Can you think of any other religiously oriented groups, anywhere in the world, that may or may not employ terrorism or violence, but which can also be seen as a social movement?
I agree that terrorist acts could be seen as social movement because they use a range of potential tactics like mobilizing resources, framing as well as political opportunity structure. A religiously oriented group that may employ terrorism and seen as social movement is Al Shaabab in Somalia.
