Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Interesting Set of Dynamics in the Middle East

It looks complicated on the surface, but only to those who don’t follow very closely.

Saudi Arabia and its allies have issued a list of 13 demands to Qatar. It’s Saudi Arabia’s follow up to the accusations they levied upon Qatar, singling Qatar out as a state sponsor of terrorism.

The accusations imply that Qatar funds ISIS, but everybody knows that ISIS is funded by the Saudis, UAE, Qatar, and Yemen.

Qatar is being punished because of their diplomatic ties with Iran.  Iran is Saudi Arabia’s arch rival.

Iran is allied with Syria and Lebanon.  Iran, Syria, and Lebanon oppose ISIS.

So it gets a little bit clearer beneath the surface why Saudi Arabia is pressuring Qatar, (they want Qatar to pour more money into financing ISIS, and they want Qatar to distance itself away from Iran.)

Meanwhile, Iran is sending Qatar food supplies amid the economic embargo that Saudi Arabia placed on Qatar.

There’s an additional element to this that the fake news is afraid to speak out about.

Israel recently made a threat to Syria, saying that Israel will find any excuse to punish Syria for the actions of Lebanon in the coming days.  But Syria was not the only one to receive the message, apparently ISIS received the message too.  ISIS’s response was ‘affirmative,’ so to speak.

One of the Lebanese soldiers was executed on the spot, the other is being held for ransom. 5 hours between the initial threat, and then subsequent news of an actual execution. Coincidence? Not likely.
