Eye witness from Hama..

I am from Hama, i lived the 1982 events, as well as 1964 and 1971 events.. Hama is the real example for manipulation by many politicians, it is being exploited lately by many of the "opposition" on the grounds of the previous events the city had witnessed, it had being pushed to repeat what happened for one aim, exploitation for a specific interest, regardless of its results.

I have participated in many demonstrations, and engaged in dialogues with many young people, some of them realized the fact behind the objective of instigation and pushing for escalation, and they -the youths- insist on their peaceful movement, but some of the political or religious organizations are pushing for some other reasons.

The cry of freedom that the civil Hama uttered and declared, is a real cry caused by a state of anger as a result of corruption, but it became a deformed cry of freedom when religious organizations entered since the beginning, coming out of mosques, and when the instigators and fabricators relayed on a lot of those drug users and criminals to start with demonstrations, with rewarding fees.

Tunis and Egypt revolutions were the "bait" that many of the eager youths completely swallowed as a result of a considerable media pump that concentrated on the saying "Youth People Capable of Change". The bait, that many political parties and fronts effectively participated in, regarding what happened and  happening in Syria, most important of them and the most ability to influence the masses of youth organizations is the Muslim Brotherhood, that placed its new allies of the political currents and intellectuals in the front of the event, in a way in which they are unable get away from but too late.. And the fact, according to many impartial observers and viewers, is that they are trying to repeat their attempts that happened in the last century (mentioned in the beginning of the text) in order to seize control of the authority in Syria.

Without going into many details about what happened, but the state of mobilization about Hama never stopped, and the large part of instigation and fabrication and lies that had been said or done -and still going- about shelling houses and random shooting is still going till now, even though it was proved wrong. But one of the most important thing that's being focused on is the distortion of the name and reputation of the Syrian Arab army, and that its members will destroy, steal, kill and rape in accordance with renewing the memories of 1982 events, and amplify it in a highly incorrect way, which caused problems for some rationalists who used to talk reason and logic.

Despite all rational and calm attempts by the law enforcement forces, and complying with the instructions and directions that were announced more than once during last year after ending the state of emergency and the issuance of the law of the right to demonstrate and the law of parties and the local administration, and the withdrawal of all the "Security Forces" from the city, and preventing the civil police forces from clashing with the protesters, the instigation and mobilization operations had escalated, and went sectarian as many police and security members were slaughtered for just being of a different sect.

We cannot ignore the fact that the accumulations by the mechanisms and the former dealing attitudes of some of the security forces in law enforcement, maintaining order and keeping security, affected the way of dealing with protestors since the beginning of the crisis, due to the complexity of the interests of the parties participating in the instigation, and the presence of those carrying weapons shooting at law enforcement personnel, so that the use of violence by the protesters escalated the resentment, and the attempts to arrest the weapons bearers caused many cases of nervousness in dealing with ordinary protesters, which led to escalating the tension from the two sides, and acts of mutual violence..

Noting that the groups of political religion "The Muslim Brotherhood" and the extremist religious organizations used the style of camouflage such as pushing the ordinary young men to indulge in the forefront of the event, and placed them in the front rows, so that its members can move actively in an unexposed way in front of the security forces.

What was unexpected by the rationalists, that many of the civil society intellectuals and political parties and powers who called for democracy, had escalated their positions and announced their rejection of all the laws to be issued, in addition to the fact that some of them altered parts of president Assad's speeches, they even refused accepting any party of election until the overthrown of the regime.

Before Ramadan 2011, the city of Hama was completely under control of the armed rebels, who formed "revolutionary courts" and the slaughtering and killing actions had escalated, and the city witnessed forming check points by the armed rebels whom the people of Hama named as the "Revolution Shabiha".. The law enforcement personnel interfered from many axis in order to reopen the roads, which resulted in heavy clashed led to many casualties from the law enforcement, the civilians and the Revolution Shabiha, then they started burning tires and preventing the citizens from leaving the city, and the weapons began to spread widely in conjunction with many rumors about what the army will do to this city.. Despite all that, the government continued distributing flour, and fuel to the bakeries and gas stations, and continued distributing medicine and first aid materials to the hospitals, and bared many cases of kidnapping, killing and stealing..

What surprised the citizens and many impelled young people, is the Syrian Army's noble and committed behavior in dealing with all the citizens in general, and presenting martyrs to protect the citizens, and personally i have witnessed how three army soldiers put themselves at danger in protection of a woman and her daughter when an armed group shot fire at them with the presence of citizens in the street. One of the soldiers martyred and another was injured due to their protection of the woman and her daughter.

In the present time, there is no heavy military vehicles in the city, and the law enforcement personnel are protecting themselves and the places of their presence with sand bags due to their constant exposure to armed attacks.
Citizens are being killed on a daily basis on the grounds that they are dealing with the security forces and the law enforcement services, and armed attacks never stopped at the places of presence of the law enforcement forces as many of them were killed and injured, other attacks targeted cars and government buses resulted in killing and injuries, not mentioning the kidnapping and threatening government supporters of killing and slaughtering, as the Facebook pages of the so called "Coordinations" placed names for the revolution Shabiha to kill, but they stopped it as it is not benefiting them in the media.

The people of Hama are currently living in a state of caution and stress because of the presence of masked armed men from time to time and suddenly in the streets, shooting fire to terrorize the people and close schools and markets, and the people notice non-Syrian armed men among those call themselves "Rebels"..
Yesterday morning, a colonel and his commissioned officer were assassinated, and after pursuing the perpetrators, it turned out that they had set an ambush for the law enforcement personnel in order to drag them into one of the residential areas, which forced the Syrian Arab army to interfere for backup and handling the situation, and within a short period of time, many masked armed men showed up with machine guns and RPG shells in the city's neighborhoods and markets, shooting fire and forcing people to close their stores and burned some tires and caused a great deal of chaos and panic, then some of them head to the places of presence of the law enforcement personnel and attacked them, it turned out that it was in line with false news report about Hama, that the Syrian Arab army is shooting randomly and shelling some areas.

One final word, most of the people of Hama do not accept what's happening, and reject any foreign military intervention, and refuse any pressure attempts and sanctions, and boast about the fact that many politicians and patriots were from Hama, such as "Saeed A'as", "Adib Shishakly" who are the symbols of their city as well as "Sheik Mohammad Al-Hamed" and "Bishop Harikeh"..

The End..
