But weren't Saudi Arabia and Qatar close friends with the same goal on the Syrian war? Not quite. Division within the opposition has deepened because of the simmering rivalry between its two financiers, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The two kingdoms gradually went their own ways and are now competing for greater influence in the Middle-East and North Africa. While Qatar backs the Muslim Brotherhood and has invested much on it, Saudi Arabia favors the Al-Qaeda Salafists despite plans to abandon them after sending them on their missions with a one-way ticket.
Although Saudi Arabia has been using the Muslim Brotherhood since the 1950s and 1960s to confront left-wing forces in the Middle-East and consequently the MB has also established various charities within Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom also sees it as a threat to its Salafist base. To shorten a long story, the threat doesn't ensue from differing ideologies of MB and the Saudi Salafist order; rather the threat is rooted on both sides in the ever-deepening ambition to control the region.
The sole beneficiary is the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad!
If this exported "revolution" hadn't been the cause of such widespread and immeasurable suffering of the Syrian people, the disarray and greed of the Syrian opposition could have been viewed as a very chucklesome story.
