    NABLUS, West Bank -- For the first time, large numbers of Palestinians are beginning to direct their widespread frustration toward the Islamist militant movement Hamas for its seeming inability to alleviate the suffering of ordinary Palestinians since it took over the reins of government early this year.

    Many residents and political analysts say the radical religious movement that scored a surprise victory in January has proven to have neither a reform plan nor an effective strategy to counter the international embargo imposed by Israel, the United States, and the European Union because of Hamas's refusal to renounce terrorism and recognize Israel's right to exist.
    An estimated 40,000 teachers are on strike because they haven't been paid for months. The price of flour has soared nearly 50 percent. Economic activity is nearing a standstill in both Gaza and the West Bank, where many shops remain shuttered and men and schoolchildren alike mill about idly in the midday heat.

    ``Hamas deceived the people during the election," said Anan Afteereh Gadri , a member of the government employees union. ``People voted for economic opportunity. The change has been for the worse."
    Such critics say Hamas's refusal to recognize Israel has choked off any chance for negotiations or relief from the intrusive Israeli security measures that are intended to rein in suicide bombers and other Palestinian militants.
