In this Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012 file photo, Syrian opposition figure and prominent Syrian human rights activist Haytham al-Maleh, left, congratulates Muslim cleric Mouaz al-Khatib after he was elected president of the newly formed Syrian National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces, in Doha, Qatar. While lacking in political experience, Al-Khatib, the 52-year-old preacher-turned-activist is described by Syrians as a man of the people--a modest, unifying figure who commands wide respect among the country�s various opposition groups and rebels.
