Great Mosque of Hama

The Great Mosque of Hama, is a mosque in Hama, Syria. It is located about 400 meters west of the citadel. Built in the 8th century CE, it was damaged in a 1982 uprising, but today it has been restored; the building used to be a temple to worship the Roman god Jupiter it became a church during the Byzantine era. When the Muslims entered Syria, they converted it to a mosque under the rule of Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah; the Great Mosque has two minarets. One is a square-based tower adjacent to the prayer hall and from an inscription on its surface, dates back to 1124, although some argue that its base is of Umayyad origin, while others say it was constructed in 1153; the second minaret is octagonal in shape and was built by the Mamluks in 1427. At the side of the main northern courtyard is a smaller square courtyard containing the tombs of two 13th century Ayyubid kings; the mosque was completely destroyed during the civil disturbances in Hama in 1982, but has since been rebuilt by the Antiquities Department of the Syrian government.

Both minarets were destroyed during the disturbances. By 2001, the Great Mosque has been restored and its reconstruction is faithful to the original Umayyad design in nearly every detail.

The Public Enemy (professional wrestling)

The Public Enemy was a professional wrestling tag team consisting of Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge. The duo competed in many promotions, including Extreme Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, National Wrestling Alliance, the World Wrestling Federation, they won the World Tag Team Championships in each company except WWF. Their name was taken from a black and white gangster film, prior to becoming a team, Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge had a long-standing feud on the independent circuit. In addition, the two wrestled each other under their former ring names the Cheetah Kid and Johnny Rotten in a dark match at the first TV tapings for WWF Monday Night Raw on January 11, 1993, eight months before they would debut as a tag team in ECW. In September 2002, Rocco Rock died after a heart attack. Johnny Grunge died four years in February 2006, from sleep apnea complications; the Public Enemy made their ECW debut in September 1993 at UltraClash, as booker Paul Heyman gave them the gimmick of white guys who embraced and loved the growing hip hop culture of America.

Heyman has stated that he got the inspiration to create The Public Enemy from a Newsweek article about the cultural changes occurring in America and the difficulty for young men living in places like Los Angeles during the early 1990s, with a quote that stated "The generation of today is more afraid of living than dying". The team became one of the more popular acts in the company; as The Public Enemy was embraced by the majority of fans, Heyman was inspired to bring in The Gangstas to feud with TPE. The Gangstas began a long and bloody feud with The Public Enemy, which pitted The Gangstas' "harsh, gritty West Coast gangsta" lifestyle against The Public Enemy's "East Coast feel good" style, their feud is among the feuds most cited as "classic ECW". The Public Enemy was involved in some of ECW's most memorable moments. On one occasion, during a singles match between Cactus Jack and Terry Funk at Hardcore Heaven 1994, the Public Enemy interfered and attacked both wrestlers. Terry Funk asked the fans if he could have a chair to use.

A fan threw a chair into the ring, not long after many other fans followed suit. The ring was filled with chairs with both members of The Public Enemy buried underneath. In another incident in Tampa, towards the end of their run with ECW, during the Sunshine State Slaughter event in 1995, The Public Enemy asked the fans to come into the ring to dance with them one last time; as more and more fans piled in and onto the ring, all dancing and celebrating, the ring collapsed. At ECW's House Party 1999 on January 16, The Public Enemy made a long-awaited and much-hyped return to the ECW Arena, in order to answer the challenge of the Dudley Boyz. At the time, they were still under contract to WCW, but they brawled with the Dudleys. Following the showdown, Johnny Grunge grabbed the microphone and claimed that the past three years had been a "rollercoaster ride" for the team, that "if you opened up our chest and looked at our hearts, there's only one thing stamped on it, that's ECW!" Grunge further thanked the Dudleys for house-sitting "the house that the Public Enemy built" while they were gone, invited everyone in attendance to join them in the ring for a post-show celebration.

On November 19, 1995 The Public Enemy received a tryout with the WWF, wrestling a dark match against WWF Tag-Team Champions The Smokin' Gunns. The team would receive an offer to sign with the company, but instead elected to go with a competing overture from World Championship Wrestling. In January 1996, after their success in ECW, The Public Enemy signed on to work for World Championship Wrestling; when they arrived in WCW, they continued acting as they did in the manner that made them so popular with fans. Although the majority of the WCW fanbase was unfamiliar with the ECW product at the time, they still carried tables to the ring. During their three-year stint, they won their only WCW World Tag Team Championship with a victory over Harlem Heat in September 1996, though their reign lasted only eight days; the team wrestled through September 1998 and was victorious in their final year with the company, concluding their run with a win over Villanos IV and V on a Worldwide episode. The Public Enemy made a brief return to ECW at the House Party'99 show on January 16, 1999, battling the Dudley Boys to a double countout.

Their next scheduled appearance was at Crossing the Line'99 on February 12 in Queens, New York against the Dudleys, which they cancelled due to negotiating with the WWF. The team was buried on the February 20 edition of ECW Hardcore TV as being cowards who ran from a fight. Footage of the Dudleys hitting big moves on the team at an event in Detroit was shown, with a headline stating "Breaking News: The Dudleys Destroy Public Enemy." Two days the team would make their WWF debut. The Public Enemy signed with the World Wrestling Federation in early 1999, they were not accepted "backstage" by veteran WWF wrestlers and backstage personnel due to animosity over the fact that The Public Enemy chose WCW over the WWF when the two companies were pursuing the tag team in late 1995. Rocco Rock was forced to change his name and go by the shortened name "Flyboy" Rocco, in order not to "cause confusion" with The Rock, they made their WWF debut on the February 22, 1999, episode of Raw is War, defeating The Brood by disq
