1- Muslims would feel that the rebel made a mistake in interpreting the signs and was ignorant.
2- My sympathies would lie with the one who follows Islam. Secondly, the rebels were mostly Saudis too, at least the leader and the claimed Mahdi were. So your question#2 is inaccurate.
3- Sheikh Bin Baz (ra) was sympathetic to Juhayman's passion for his deen and visited him in the jail but he did condemn Juhayman's hasty and wrong actions in this case ...
