Hizb ut-Tahrir

Hizb ut-Tahrir, founded in 1953 in Jerusalem, is a global pan-Islamic Salafi movement. Its Palestinian branch includes hundreds of members who have been repressed by the PA in the West Bank. Their organisation has recently been limited to activities of supporters among students in universities. Hizb ut-Tahrir does not participate in PA or PLO politics but instead works on the re-establishment of the caliphate through non-military means.
