Arab anger towards Qatar was powerful from its closest neighbors; Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain were fed up by the country’s actions that crossed all the red lines.
Qatar will not escape that anger except when it comes back to its senses. This is the first time since the establishment of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf in 1998 to take a decision to withdraw the Ambassadors of three countries from Doha.
The countries threatened Qatar with a suspension of its membership from the council if the country did not stop supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, and inviting symbols of terrorism to live on its lands, in addition to trying to destabilize the Gulf and the latest attempts included suspicion of interfering in the recent bombing in Bahrain which resulted the killing of many police officers, including one Emirati.
The anger could increase in the next few days if Qatar does not announce its commitment to the council’s agreements made during the Kuwait summit, which state the importance of dismissing members of terrorists groups, in addition to reconsidering the Al-Jazeera situation, especially its situation towards Egypt after June 30.
Qatar knows that it cannot handle the Gulf anger, especially from Riyadh, economically, socially and politically.
No one can forget the political conflict between Saudi Arabia and Qatar after Hamad bin Jassim took over the role from his father, in addition to Emirati anger towards Doha for its involvement with the secret Muslim Brotherhood organization in the United Arab Emirates.
