facebook group has appeared calling for a protest “against corruption” in Qatar. “Support the revolution, Qatar February 27 against corruption.” Neither the posted info nor the comments have issued more specific demands, than to “topple this corrupt regime” but 500 people have liked the page which has been up since around February 8.

The current Emir of Qatar, Hamad Bin Khalifa took control from his father in 1995. He has been criticized in the Arab world for meeting with Israeli minister Tzipi Livni, and for supporting the Al Jazeera news network which is critical of other Arab governments and frequently airs western and Israeli views.
