Qatar is ordered to shut down Al-Jazeera and cut ties to Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood

Qatar has been told it must close the broadcaster Al Jazeera and meet 12 other demands to lift a blockade by countries including Saudi Arabia.

Qatar reportedly has 10 days to meet the list of conditions.

As well as shutting down Al Jazeera, which Qatar has previously said it would not do, the boycotting five Arab countries also want it to cut diplomatic ties with Iran.

    Muslims cannot even get along with other Muslims.

    So, what’s new.

    These demands come a month after the Gulf Arabs realized that Trump is not Obama.

      Maybe the noose will tighten a little.

      Who knows! But Qatar has been a well-known pit of corruption for decades now. Spent almost six months there once. Hated every second. Paid super well at the time. Refused to ever return.

  • Did Trump do this with Saudi Arabia, as well?

      Trump addressed all those present in Riyadh that jihad must stop ASAP. He didn’t make any specific threats, but made it clear that his tolerance for these violent shenanigans is very short.

    I wonder if the CBC will take back the dozens and dozens of Canadian journalists who jumped ship to al jazeera?

      If they ever actually struck them from the payroll to begin with.
