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.
