Qatar in for a Pro-Democracy Wave!

The page, named “Freedom Revolution March 16 Qatar,” has set the date for popular revolt across the country, Reuters reported on Thursday. Depicting a defaced photo of the ruler, it has so far been “liked” by 1,646 people. It advocates the removal of a huge US military base from the Persian Gulf emirate and the exclusion of the emir's wife Sheikha Mouza from public affairs. The page also calls for political reform -- which has hit a deadlock due to recurrent postponement of parliamentary elections -- and more welfare benefits for the 350,000-strong populace. It further protested against the Doha-based news channel al-Jazeera's refusal to broadcast a photograph showing Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani in a meeting with an Israeli official and called for severance of relations with Tel Aviv. The sign of resentment at Doha's rights record comes amid large-scale popular protests in Jordan and Bahrain and reports about upcoming rallies in Saudi Arabia.
