GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The director of a Gaza-based human rights organization said Sunday that he received an arrest warrant from the Hamas government, after he criticized the state-run energy authority.

Al-Dameer director Khalil Abu Shamala, who is also a member of the public freedoms committee, said the arrest warrant included accusations from the Hamas-run energy authority that he had blamed them for the current energy crisis in Gaza.

It also said that he had created a rift amongst citizens, as well as threatening the security of the authority.

Gaza depends heavily on fuel smuggled in from Egypt to keep its lone power station on line. But as supplies were severely reduced from Egypt, the station was shut down on Feb. 14, and Gaza had faced blackouts of up to 18 hours per day.

A Gaza energy official told Ma'an on Saturday that the Gaza Strip has not received enough fuel to resume normal electricity levels, despite the fact that the Gaza government said it had reached a deal with Egyptian authorities on Thursday to end the crisis.

Israel is not just arresting everybody, only those somebodies wanting to kill us. They can talk all they like. Poor #1: did you really expect arab political culture to change? This is one more reason why we will never subject ourselves to arab/islamic rule. The totalitarian mindset.

Poor #'s 1 & 2: People in power always seem to take what doesn't belong to them. Just because they can. It's the little guy that always looses. Happens in every country, sadly. But all of us thinks it only happens in someone else country never our own.
