Saudi Arabia and the UAE are firmly against the muslim brotherhood, while Qatar funds, supports them, and hosts their leaders.

Former Saudi crown prince Nayef called the muslim brotherhood a terrorist group, and UAE officials like the Dubai police chief also spoke against the muslim brotherhood and kicked their members out of Dubai several times.

this is reflected in which rebel groups get funded by what country in Syria.

Saudi arabia supoorts the free syrian army, qatar supports the muslim brotherhood's militia, and al qaeda supports jahbat al nusra.

The free syrian army are made out of various peoples including local islamists who are concerned only about syria, they most likely want to see an islamist government like turkey

Jahbt al nusra and other al qaeda linked groups are made out of global jihadists and some foreign fighters who most likely are fantasizing either about getting martyred or establishing a caliphate.

Recently one of the free syrian army units, the al farouq brigade killed the leader of Jahbat al nusra, with Saudi arabia, qatar, and al qaeda supporting different rebel groups this means that there will be alot of blowback even when this is over.

No wonder Syrian Christians have been leaning heavily towards Assad....

During the 80's the Syrian regime helped the Shia militia Amal shell Palestinian refugee camps even while they were both fighting Israel, actually both Amal and Israel were shelling the palestinians at the same time, its not about Assad having principles, Assad has been offering minority groups incentives to stay out of the rebellion by granting the 80,000 stateless kurds citizenship last year after denying it for decades, and he offered the turkmen federal autonomy in exchange for staying out of the uprising, when they rejected it he started shelling their villages.

As for christians, Assad uses fearmongering of islamists taking power if he is ousted.

A syrian christian opposition leader, Michel Kilo has urged the opposition to address these concerns.

Syria's occupation of Lebanon and the harm it did to Christians is unforgovable, but they had the help of Christian and Sunni traitors too.

News reports all say that Saudi arabia is avoiding giving any donations to groups with ties to the muslim brotherhood, they are treating it like its the plague.

The Saudi King is the borther in law to Rifaat al Assad, who was esiled after a power struggle with his brother president hafez al assad of syria. rifaat is alleged to have killed many muslim brotherhood members in the 1980's uprising, now that he is backed by the Saudis, he has voiced his desire to become President of Syria.

The muslim brotherhood and their Qatari backers would probably be angry at that.

This rivalry is being muted due to the necessity of uniting against Iran.

Rifaat Al Assad's son, Ribal al Assad gave many interviews to various news media. His position is that President Bashar needs to resign, peace with Israel in exchange for return of the Golan Heights, convincing hezbollah to break off from Iran and support of the Green Movement, and retrieving Arab terroritories occupied by foreign countries like the UAE islands which are occupied by Iran

Rifaat himself stated that their goals were to set up a palestinian state within the 1967 borders which seems like a tacit approval of the two state solution, and the retrieval of arab territories like the UAE islands from Iran, and Iskandaroun (Hatay province) from Turkey.

If Saudi arabia actually helps him take power he is going to anger alot of countries such as Turkey due to his position on iskandaroun.
