Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Saudi Arabia Just Gave 24-Hour Ultimatum

It’s been over 24 hours since Saudi Arabia gave Qatar a ten-point ultimatum.

From the Conservative Tribune:

  1.  Immediate severance of diplomatic relations with Iran,
  2.  Expulsion of all members of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas from Qatar,
  3.  Freezing all bank accounts of Hamas members and refraining from any deal with them,
  4.  Expulsion of all Muslim Brotherhood members from Qatar,
  5.  Expulsion of anti-[P]GCC elements,
  6.  Ending support for ‘terrorist organisations’,
  7.  Stopping interference in Egyptian affairs,
  8.  Ceasing the broadcast of the Al Jazeera news channel,
  9.  Apologizing to all [Persian] Gulf governments for ‘abuses’ by Al Jazeera,
  10.  Pledging that it (Qatar) will not carry out any actions that contradict the policies of the [P]GCC and adhering to its charter.

These conditions focus on Qatar’s alleged connections to Iran and groups such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. At the heart of the conflict is also a scandal regarding Qatar’s state news agency.

Last month, the government-owned news station published remarks which were attributed to the Emir of Qatar. The alleged statements expressed support Iran, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

The Arab news station denied responsibility for the quotes, and maintains that its website was hacked. While it insists that the Emir did not actually make the remarks, many Middle Eastern countries did not accept this explanation and quickly distanced themselves from Qatar.

The minster added that Qatar would respect its LNG gas agreement with the United Arab Emirates, despite the UAE allying with Saudi Arabia in the rift.

He also said he expected no changes in Qatar’s arrangement with the United States, with the Gulf state hosting the largest US military base in the Middle East.

Qatar claims that they have not yet been presented with the list from Saudi Arabia.
