“Saudi Arabia has threatened to blockade its neighbouring Gulf State Qatar by land and sea unless it cuts ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, closes Al Jazeera, and expels local branches of two prestigious US think tanks, the Brookings Doha Center and the Rand Qatar Policy Institute.”

One Response to Saudi-Qatari Rivalry

  1. Reblogged this on CrunkedThoughts and commented:
    Very sad to see this happening in the GCC especially between two countries that have had brotherly ties like Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Resembles the Cold War era and the rivalry between the Soviet Union and the United States in my opinion.

    Thankfully, the citizens of the country, not all off course, have decided to put politics aside and look at the bigger picture that all citizens of the GCC are brothers and whatever does take place won’t effect the friendship between individuals.
