Activists have called for nationwide demonstrations Friday against the head of the Syrian National Coalition, Ahmad Jarba, as a strong "message" to signal disappointment with the opposition-in-exile's catalog of political failures.But the divisive move, which some observers attribute to the struggle between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which backs Jarba, for primacy in the ranks of the backers of the opposition has prompted other activists to reject focusing on a single person when it comes to responsibility for the setbacks.The Facebook page of the Syrian Revolution 2011, which selects the slogan for the weekly protests, said it did not favor focusing on a single individual, despite the slogan "Friday of Toppling the Head of the Coalition". Jarba and the coalition have come in for increasing criticism in recent days – last weekend saw the fall of the rebel-held town of Yabroud to regime forces and Hezbollah fighters, with many blaming the opposition for failing to send enough material support to the rebel groups.The slogan against Jarba has gained the support of thousands of people online, but the campaign hasn't appeared to catch on among the multitude of Facebook pages representing activists in various provinces of Syria.
