Arab countries cut diplomatic ties to Qatar
Jun 05, 2017
In the wake of President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia and his appeal to cut their ties to ISIS, at least five Arab countries are now cutting diplomatic ties to Qatar. Even the US is considering leaving its military air base in Qatar.
Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, The United Arab Emirates, and Egypt have all given Qatar’s diplomats 48 hours to leave the country, and Qatar citizens have two weeks to leave.
One of the stated reasons for this is Qatar’s support for ISIS.
This is a major change in the Arab world. There is no doubt that it is coming as a result of Trump’s recent speech to Arab leaders on his recent trip to Saudi Arabia.
Benjamin Fulford commented on this in his blog today, saying,
The Saudis are now blaming Qatar for Daesh in an outrageous case of the pot calling the kettle black.... In reality, the fight is almost certainly related to the fact the Qatar has reached a pipeline deal with Russia and the Syrians to export its gas while the Saudis have not.
