E.C. WORLD Faced with crackdown by Palestinian police, Hamas reassesses role DAVID HOFFMAN WASHINGTON POST GAZA CITY The single-page announcement, signed by brigadier in the Palestinian police force, echoed like a thunderclap across the mosques of Gaza.

It was addressed to "the brothers who are imams," or leaders of the mosques, in the east side of Khan Yunis, the second-largest city in the Gaza Strip. It said mosques and their loudspeakers could longer be used for "purposes of propaganda," and the mosques could issue no leaflets or political broadcasts unless they were approved in advance by the new Palestinian police force. For Islamic leaders in Gaza, the message was ominous: The Palestinian police, in the first weeks of self-rule, were trying to stifle the public voice of Hamas, the militant Islamic Resistance Movement. which has strongly opposed the peace agreement with Israel. of Hamas led the intifada, the Palestinian uprising a against Israeli occupation, its guerrilla wing attacked nuof merous Israeli mili13, tary, targets and Jewish settlers, as well as Palestinians Hamas in the past has sought to be the violent spoiler of the peace accord with Israel.

suspected of collaborating with Israel. The movement clashed with the Palestine Liberation Organization over leadership in the occupied territories and scored major victories in municipal elections in 1992. According to Islamic leaders, Hamas, in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, is being forced into a period of profound reassessment of its tactics and methods. The outcome may be crucial to the success of Palestinian self-rule in the territories. The fortunes of Hamas have always been tied to the peace talks.

When the outlook was gloomy, Hamas gained strength. Now that the PLO has signed a limited autonomy agreement with Israel. Hamas is losing ground. Should the agreement collapse, the Islamic militants could well rise again. But two powerful factors have put the militant Islamic movement on the defensive.

One is the surge of enthusiasm that has taken hold in Gaza since Israeli troops left last month. Hamas was born in the fiery early months of the intifada, but in Gaza's streets today, the intifada flame has all but died out. Hamas no longer commands enough support among Palestinians in Gaza to carry on with strikes. The other factor has been the arrival of the Palestinian police, an army under the command of forces loyal to PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat. In the last few weeks, the police have been increasingly bold in challenging Islamic militants.

The police have arrested several Hamas and Islamic Jihad activists and threatened to confiscate weapons and to pursue those who attack Israeli targets. Police are holding one prisoner, affiliated with Islamic Jihad, on suspicion of participating in the murder of two Israeli soldiers at the Erez Checkpoint May 20, an incident that was viewed as a test of whether the police would act against Islamic militants. In the past, Hamas sought to be the violent spoiler of the peace accord with Israel. But what is remarkable about the movement's internal reassessment is the degree to which Hamas leaders said they have begun to think not about how to fight the peace, but about how, practically, to make the most of it. In effect, Hamas leaders have come to the realization that the world around them suddenly has changed, especially in the stronghold of Gaza, even if they do not like it.

is now evident that neither Hamas nor the other opposition factions can dismiss what has taken place so far," said Ziad Abu-Amr, political science professor at Bir Zeit University in the West Bank. "They are trying to find certain mechanisms that will allow them to engage in the new order." The new order is abundantly evident in Gaza. Savoring more personal freedom than they have enjoyed in years, Palestinians seem in no mood to return to a life of sacrifice, strikes and bloodshed, the environment in which Hamas was created and thrived. "The majority of Palestinians support the national authority, and we condemn and renounce attacks against Israel," said Mahmoud Abu Hueiadi, who runs a falafel stand near the Gaza beach. He motioned across the street toward a wall painted with graffiti praising Hamas.

young people who struggled in the past for freedom they are at home, unemployed. The only reason for the struggle was to kick the occupation out, and now this reason is over. Now they are awaiting a better Abdullah Mansour, a peddler of boiled corn on the cob to Gaza beach- goers, said a few days after the Israeli soldiers were killed at the Erez Checkpoint: "We are not supporting the violence. If we are going to kill them, one day they will come and kill my brother or my neighbor or a Palestinian. We always pray this will be stopped, soon." Secrecy shrouds the changes inside Hamas.

Decisions are made by senior figures in the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan, and prominent Islamic activists in the territories. many of whom are leaders in the merchant and professional classes, also are influential. Another key element is, the armed wing of the guerrilla cells-the Iz a Din Qassem Brigades. Key Hamas figures and Israeli security sources said they believe the Hamas guerrillas will continue violent attacks against Israeli targets elsewhere in the West Bank, while trying to avoid violence inside the Palestinian autonomous zones of Jericho and the Gaza Strip. But one of the strongest signals of change so far has been open discussion by Hamas leaders.

such as Mahmoud Zohar, a Gaza physician, about creating a legitimate political party. Hamas has refused to recognize the new national authority under Arafat. Many Hamas leaders predict the self-rule enterprise eventually will collapse, but for now, the movement clearly wants to capture some of the popular enthusiasm generated by the departure of Israeli troops. Moreover, Hamas leaders fear they will be trampled by Arafat's authoritarianism and they are insisting. on pluralism to preserve their foothold in the territories.

"There are some fears that the new national authority will have dernocracy as it is practiced in some Arab countries, where it has proven its failure," said Mohsen Abu who heads an Islamic charity organization in Gaza. "No one wants to give democracy to the Islamic movement." Hamas was created "to deal with the intifada," said Abu-Amr, the Bir Zeit professor. "Now they want to create a political party to deal with the new order. They recognize the old tactics are not practical any more." "They may end up working within this order if it helps them Islamicize the society and control it," he added. "They will give political imperatives priority over ideology.

The key is that Hamas is a political movement."
