Syria: What Is Going On in Hama?
by Bassam al-Kadi
Hama has suffered for the (at least) past three weeks from
lawlessness and nearly complete absence of the entire state and
its organs, and from control by groups of armed teenagers and
criminals who (left without any other choice, in the opinion of
the US and French ambassadors) actually erected roadblocks and
expropriated the city. Each criminal among them became the king
of his own dunghill, where he could stop anyone to ask to see
their ID card, with all the volatile possibilities that such a
behavior entails. . . .
Indeed, government officials have become under house arrest in one
way or another, unable to wander in the city, and some of them
were not even able to leave their home to go to work!
A lot of employees who live outside the city limits were advised
against (and sometimes prevented from) trying to go to work in the
Criminals fought in the streets with each other because of
differences, some of which were quite frivolous, while others were
related to schemes aimed to paralyze the city by imposing a strike
on every shop and every business.
