The Syrian rebellion against the government of Bashar al-Assad has gotten much support – mostly political – from western nations, while at the same time, the rebellion consists of terrorist-related groups and individuals. One of those individuals, Yaser Tabbara, is located inside the United States, and he is currently a top spokesman for the entire Syrian opposition.
On November 11, 2012, at a meeting taking place in Doha, Qatar, a deal was signed to bring together all factions, political and military, of those opposing Bashar Assad. The result of the deal was the creation of the Syrian National Coalition for Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (SNCROF).
Previous to the SNCROF, the main umbrella for the rebellion was the Syrian National Council (SNC), which still exists and is dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood. Over a quarter of all SNC members are from the Brotherhood or Ikhwan. Under the new umbrella agreement that was signed, out of the 63 seats in the coalition, 22 were given to the SNC.
