U.S. leader Donald Trump signed the yearly waiver he promised he wouldn’t sign but move the embassy from Tel Aviv to the undivided city of Jerusalem. Of course, when dealing with Saudis in a commercial deal of 380bn, something’s got to give.

Just recently in Saudi capital Riyadh, apprentice president Trump reiterated all global terror comes from Iran. Just more fake news from Bircher president Trump, at last the GOP revolt is completed.

US Administratons’ Failure to Distinquish Strands of Islam

So often the Obama administration [Pentagon, CIA et al.] blamed Russia [Putin and Lavrov] for failures of Geneva talks. It has been clear to me the different strands of Islam and  the political context of the region were to blame as there was no united front of rebel leaders in opposition to Syrian president Bashar Assad. Their irreconcilable positions were the cause of the ultimate failure for a diplomatic solution and the deaths of hundreds of thousands and the exile of millions of refugees in the region and into Europe.

Gulf plunged into diplomatic crisis as countries cut ties with Qatar | The Guardian |

The Gulf has been hit by its biggest diplomatic crisis in years after Arab nations including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut ties with Qatar, accusing it of destabilising the region with its support for Islamist groups.

The countries said they would halt all land, air and sea traffic with Qatar, eject its diplomats and order Qatari citizens to leave the Gulf states within 14 days. Shoppers in the Qatari capital, Doha, meanwhile packed supermarkets amid fears the country, which relies on imports from its neighbours, would face food shortages after Saudi Arabia closed its sole land border.

Social media reports from Doha showed supermarket shelves empty as nervous consumers began to worry that stocks of food and water would run out. As much as 40% of Qatar’s food comes over the Saudi border.

The small but very wealthy nation, the richest in the world per capita, was also expelled from a Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen.

The coordinated move dramatically escalates a dispute over Qatar’s support of Islamist movements, including the Muslim Brotherhood, and its perceived tolerance of Saudi Arabia’s arch-rival, Iran. The dispute is the worst to hit the Gulf since the formation of the Gulf Co-operation Council in 1981.

Qatar’s foreign affairs ministry said the measures were unjustified and based on false claims and assumptions. As the Qatari stock market tumbled and oil prices rose, it accused its fellow Gulf states of violating its sovereignty.

“The state of Qatar has been subjected to a campaign of lies that have reached the point of complete fabrication,” a statement said. “It reveals a hidden plan to undermine the state of Qatar.”

Saudi Arabia said it took the decision to cut diplomatic ties owing to Qatar’s “embrace of various terrorist and sectarian groups aimed at destabilising the region”, including the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida, Islamic State and groups supported by Iran in Saudi Arabia’s restive eastern province of Qatif.
