Saudi funding islamists in Syria. Qatar funding Islamists in Syria. Qatar and Saudi on bad terms. Al Jazeera homebase in Qatar. Stirs problem for conservatism in Middle East – especially Gulf area surrounding Qatar. Egypt unstable. Perhaps Egypt and Syria may forge an alliance rooted in a secular-resistance tradition/past. The axes are becoming more fine – all that’s left is a few states teetering back and forth on the fence. Who? That’s ALWAYS debatable.
