Qatar, Boycotting Arab States in Heated Arab League Clash

Gulf crisis continues as false media reports surface

Qattan said the four Arab states have taken the sovereign measures against Qatar because of its wrong policies in terms of supporting and financing terrorism and hosting those involved in terrorism on its territory, spreading hatred and interfering in the internal affairs of other states.

Reports on social media said that Awad al-Qarni, another prominent cleric with 2.2 million Twitter followers, was also detained from his home in Abha in southern Saudi Arabia.

Sheikh Salman al-Awdah, an influential cleric who was imprisoned from 1994-99 for agitating for political change and has 14 million followers on Twitter, appears to have been detained over the weekend, the posting suggested. In the 1990s, the Sahwa (Awakening) movement inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood demanded political reforms that would have weakened the ruling family.

"May God harmonize between their hearts for the good of their people", al-Awdah was quoted as saying in one of his Tweets.

Reports of the arrests coincided with widespread speculation, dismissed by officials, that King Salman intends to abdicate in favour of Crown Prince Mohammed.

However, questions are being raised as to whether the smear campaign by the Saudis could be an attempt at subterfuge by diverting media attention away from recent reports in the American media about the Saudi Embassy's possible links to the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York's Twin Towers.

On Friday, the Emir of Qatar contacted Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is recently elevated to the rank of Crown Prince, by phone to discuss the list of demands issued to Doha by the Saudi led quartet. However, Saudi Arabia subsequently accused Qatar of distorting facts about the call, and said it was ending talks.

Additionally, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash claimed that the Persian Gulf rift had continued "due to Qatar's unwillingness for peace", noting that Doha's "escape to Turkey and Iran is not solving the crisis".

Furthermore, hopes that there would be progress in diplomatically resolving the crisis were dashed last week following a telephone call between the Qatari leader and the Saudi crown prince.

The Riyadh regime, he said, was looking to depose Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

Muraikhi also hailed Iran as an "honorable country", adding that the Tehran-Doha relations had warmed since the blockade. Most protests are held on Fridays because of large congregation gatherings in Muslim countries.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran's policy in the region is clear".
