The Al-Thani's and The Al-Assad's.

What do Qatari Monarchists think of todays revelations regarding the leaked emails of Asma Al-Assad, and particularly those between Asma Al-Assad and Sheikha Mayassa Al-Thani that more than suggest a very close friendship between the Assad's and Qatari Royal family?
I was upset and very dissappointed by this?
Will any of these email detailed revelations matter or be of concern to the Qatari people, or even the Al-Thani family?
