Trump Leads US Into Recent Arab Crisis, By Opposing It's Ally Qatar

Gulf crisis deepens

"The President underscored that a united Gulf Cooperation Council is critical to defeating terrorism and promoting regional stability", according to a readout of the conversation released by the White House.

"Even worst, the Qataris actually talk to the Iranians, which is their real sin here and the reason that the Saudis are going after them, especially after President Trump's visit to Riyadh, where he essentially anointed the Saudis as our champion in the region, are directed against Iran", Jatras said.

The official said there were enough grain supplies in the market in Qatar to last four weeks and that the government also had large strategic food reserves in Doha.

The incident triggered a diplomatic row between Qatar and its neighbors.

Trump made the offer Wednesday during a phone call with Sheikh Tamin bin Hamad Al Thani.

Numerous others added to the list are figures associated with the Muslim Brotherhood who have made Qatar a base, including Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi.

However, Jordan was taking the terror allegations into consideration and acting accordingly, he said, downgrading diplomatic ties with the beleaguered state and kicking out Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based news organization.

The Kuwaiti ruler played a pivotal role in mediating a compromise in a 2014 diplomatic dispute between Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Gulf states.

Intelligence gathered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicates that Russian hackers were behind the cyber attack on the Qatar News Agency that was first reported by the Qatari government two weeks ago, CNN reported Wednesday, citing United States officials. In recent months, suspected Russian cyberactivities, including the use of fake news stories, have turned up amid elections in France, Germany and other countries.

Qatar's currency came under pressure on Tuesday as Gulf Arab commercial banks started holding off on business with Qatari banks because of a diplomatic rift in the region. They have imposed what Qatar says is a blockade of shipping and air traffic, and closed Qatar's only land border, causing panic buying at supermarkets.
