INTERVIEWS: MOHAMMAD AL HARIRI

From Dera'a. 

I'm known as Abu Hussein the Leader. And we are known for goodness. 

I was one of the first people to enter into Za'atari When we first came here, not only was there nothing, there wasn’t even life itself. There weren't flies, there weren't ants. There was no life here, not even ghosts. 

Look, a Herculean effort was made here by me and all of the brothers towards a unified aim. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't have become the “community leader”. We fight for social justice in the camp and are facilitating any issue for the refugee, regardless of whether they are a man or woman and from which province they hail. There is no personal interest or gain. 

Is the thief who comes from Syria going to come here and become the imam of a mosque? Good defeats evil always.
