Cash-strapped Hamas turns to e-bullets – NBC40.net

By IBRAHIM BARZAK Associated Press

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) – In a long hallway that looks more like a videogame arcade than a military base, Hamas security forces are holding target practice using assault rifles fitted with lasers – all without firing a bullet.

For the cash-strapped Hamas government, the system is a much-needed money saver that eliminates the need to train with live ammunition, which is in short supply in Gaza. Hamas also says the quiet, indoor facility is less likely to attract the attention of the Israeli military than the open-air firing ranges that are frequently targeted in airstrikes.

“Our training centers are targeted all the time by the occupation, so we have a closed-door shooting range that is hidden from the occupation,” said Abdallah Karmot, the deputy director of training at Hamas’ Interior Ministry, which oversees security in the seaside strip of land. “We also save money and the time it takes to move officers to training camps for live shooting.”

Karmot said Hamas developed the electronic shooting range with homegrown technology. The modified Kalashnikovs, powered by software developed by Hamas programmers, fire green laser beams at their targets, which mimic the sound of real rifle fire when there is a direct hit.

The move indoors is the latest sign of the deep financial crisis plaguing Hamas, which is suffering its worst money woes and ammunition shortage since taking power. Israel and Egypt have maintained a blockade of the seaside strip since Hamas seized power from the rival forces of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in 2007.

Israel considers Hamas a terrorist organization responsible for killing hundreds of Israelis in suicide bombings and other attacks. Israel and Hamas have engaged in heavy fighting over the years, most recently an eight-day battle in 2012 in which Hamas fired hundreds of rockets into Israel.

Under the blockade, Egypt looked the other way for years as cement, fuel and weapons were smuggled into Gaza through a network of tunnels running under the border with Egypt.

That changed last summer after the Egyptian military overthrew the country’s Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi. Egypt’s new military government cracked down on Hamas, the local offshoot of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood movement, and destroyed nearly all of the tunnels. With the tunnels out of operation, Hamas lost a key source of tax revenue and a main conduit for weapons.

“Due to the Egyptian crackdown on the tunnels, we can talk about some sort of arms crisis facing all the armed groups in Gaza, as well as the security forces that used smuggled supplies in the past,” said Adnan Abu Amer, an expert on Palestinian militant groups at Gaza’s Al Ummah University.

Gaza Athlete Still Running Despite Marathon Ban

GAZA Kicking up dust on the back roads of northern Gaza within sight of the Israeli fence that seals off the enclave, Olympic athlete Nader Al-Masri is still training, despite being barred from competing in his people’s largest sporting event. Masri, who has participated in 40 international contests including the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, was denied a permit by Israeli authorities to travel to the occupied West Bank for the Palestine Marathon on Friday. I’m sad. This is a race for all Palestine and I wanted to participate, but unfortunately the Israeli side coldly rejected me, said the 34-year-old policeman. The Palestine Marathon, was inaugurated last year as an expression of statehood and of the right to free movement demanded by Palestinians. This year it is being run against the backdrop of heightened diplomatic tensions, with Israeli-Palestinian peace talks on the verge of collapse amidst mutual recriminations In a statement to Reuters, an Israeli government body in charge of permits said: The marathon is supported by the Palestinian Authority and is tainted by political shades which delegitimize the State of Israel. It said Masri’s case did not meet the requirements for travel out of Gaza, without elaborating. He was also barred from running in last year’s race – which starts in the West Bank town of Bethlehem and loops round a 10 km route. Frontrunner I would’ve easily come in first … I know my record and I know the other people’s records, Masri told Reuters. As he trained near his hometown of Beit Hanoun, children sprinted to his side and tried to match his stride before falling back. Neighbors cheered Nader as he passed. People encourage me to continue my sport, telling me the ban isn’t the end and there will be more contests, he said. Masri was one of 30 runners from Gaza whose permit requests were rejected by Israel, according to Gisha, an Israeli human rights group which litigated Masri’s case up to the level of Israel’s Supreme Court. The right to freedom of movement which should have been a central consideration was given no weight, said Gisha spokeswoman Shai Grunberg. It would also seem to run counter to public statements made by security officials themselves about Israel’s interest in facilitating normal life for civilians in Gaza, she added. Travel permits are not Palestinian athletes’ only concern, Masri said, bemoaning a lack of government funding. As you see, we train in the streets and most of the time in areas adjacent to the border, said Masri. Sometimes shots are fired as I run – not at me – but once a shell exploded 500 meters away, he said. Not far from where Masri trained, gunfire echoed and Palestinian medical officials later said two people collecting gravel from near the fence with Israel were wounded when soldiers opened fire to disperse them from the area. The Islamist group Hamas runs Gaza after seizing control in 2007, ousting forces loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas one year after Hamas won parliamentary elections. The takeover prompted an Israeli-led embargo on the Islamist faction which does not recognize Israel’s right to exist.

Robert Bennett: More, rather than less, political speech is a good thing

Last week the Supreme Court overturned existing limits on the total amount of money an individual can donate to political campaigns. (Limits on donations to individual candidates remain in place.) Liberal commentators claim this decision undermines democracy; Conservatives declare it a victory for free speech.

Free speech has not always been seen as an unalloyed good in America. In the early days after the Constitution was ratified, those in office were so offended by what was being said by their opponents that they passed the Alien and Sedition Acts, making it illegal to criticize certain governmental actions.

Fortunately, those laws disappeared after Jefferson became President, but uneasiness with the idea that anyone can say whatever he wants in the political arena remained. During World War I the Wilson Administration prosecuted pacifists, pro-German activists and others seen as either radical or un-patriotic for expressing their views. Few seemed to object at the time.

In 1927, the Supreme Court began to change this. In a concurring opinion that one legal scholar has called extraordinarly influential, Justice Brandeis said that freedom of speech was essential to rational political debate. In the 1950s, the Warren Court went further and included expressions of opinion by cultural radicals. Freedom of speech became a cause that liberal jurists embraced.

After the Watergate scandal, Congress passed laws limiting the amounts of money people could give to political campaigns, as well as the amounts candidates could spend, in order prevent corruption or the appearance of corruption. (Im troubled by that latter phrase. Should we really prohibit things that arent wrong just because, to some, they appear to be?)

James Buckley, a candidate for the Senate who was wealthy enough to finance his own campaign, challenged the Watergate limits on personal expenditures. He argued, Under the First Amendment, I have an unlimited right to free speech. How am I corrupted when I exercise that right by using my own money?

The Supreme Court sided with Buckley in the landmark case of Buckley v. Valeo in 1976, ruling that his constitutional right of free speech trumped the Watergate laws. He could not donate to other candidates in amounts that would give the appearance of corruption, but he could spend his own money to express his own views in whatever amounts he wanted. The author of that opinion was Justice William Brennan, the courts most liberal member. At the time, the ACLU thought it was too weak. Freedom of speech had become a dominant liberal value.

No more. In their attacks against the recent decision, which cites Buckley v. Valeo as precedent, liberals are now insisting that ones free speech rights should decrease as ones net worth increases. Too much free speech, if it is made possible by money, is, for them, a bad thing.

Justice Breyers dissent from the recent decision, about which he felt so passionately that he read it from the bench, makes that clear. He says that corruption by which he means campaign donations derails the essential speech-to-government -action tie. Where enough money calls the tune, the general public will not be heard.

He is saying that the voice of the general public is being drowned out by the voices of people who believe the First Amendment gives them the right to say whatever they think, in spite of the fact that they can afford to do it. His quarrel is really not with his current colleagues but with William Brennan, a liberal of the old school who ruled that more, rather than less, political speech is a good thing.
