UAE bans expressions of sympathy towards Qatar

The dispute between Qatar and the Arab countries escalated after a recent hack of Qatar's state-run news agency.

The port at Fujairah, a main oil transit and refined product hub, said Monday it was closed to Qatar-linked traffic.

Castaner said France doesn't intent to take sides.

"It's a mixed bag with Qatar", said Republican Sen.

He later tweeted: "So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off. There are laws that prevent terror financing in our country". He called for Qatar "to become a neighbor and partner as we were accustomed to it". More than 1 million Filipinos live and work in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain. Qatar has strenuously denied the allegations. "That's something that the Secretary spoke to as well", Nauert said in response to a question. He added that there was an "understanding" that Qatar would "take measures in relation to supporting some organizations and. some individuals", but that Qatar didn't live up to its commitments.

Al-Masri's strongly worded criticism of regional powerhouse Saudi Arabia was unusual for Hamas.

The region's Sunni states bristle at Qatar's less hostile position toward Shiite Iran and object to its backing groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, whose ideology challenges the system of hereditary rule in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and elsewhere.

Trump is notoriously thin-skinned: He has banned people who publicly criticized him from his team (including GOP consigliere Elliott Abrams, a fellow Qatar skeptic who is friends with Otaiba) and seems unable to get over slights even years after they occur.


President Donald Trump injected the United States into a volatile crisis among America's Mideast allies, siding Tuesday with Saudi Arabia and other countries against Qatar in a dispute that threatens to disrupt efforts to defeat the militant Islamic State (IS) group and counter Iran.

The crisis will have wide-ranging consequences, not just for Qatar and its citizens but across the Middle East and for Western interests.

The ministry put out a statement on social media Wednesday saying those found guilty could face three to 15 years in prison and fines starting from 500,000 dirhams ($136,000).

"They said they would take a hard line on funding. extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar".

The United Arab Emirates, along with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and other Arab nations severed ties with Qatar and have cut off land, sea and air access.

In a tweet, early morning Trump apparently supported the actions of four Arab countries to cut off diplomatic relationship with Qatar.

Oil producer Gabon condemned Qatar for "failing to respect worldwide commitments and agreements on counter-terrorism", a statement from its foreign ministry said, The Central African nation was "preoccupied with Qatar's continuing support for terrorist groups", it said. It said Qatar is "promoting extremist thoughts and spreading chaos and disturbances across numerous Arab countries, resulting in big humanitarian miseries". Qatar backed the plans for talks with the Saudi Arabia and other Arab powers as the Gulf rift has started taking pace.

U.S. officials were blindsided by Saudi Arabia's decision to sever diplomatic ties with Qatar in a coordinated move with Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), current and former officials in Washington said.
