Joe Scarborough Blasts Al Jazeera for 'Glorifying' Terrorism

Joe Scarborough Blasts Al Jazeera for 'Glorifying' Terrorism”

The U.S., which urges a diplomatic solution to the crisis, has been pushing for a list of grievances that are "reasonable and actionable".

Tillerson this week hosted a top Qatari government official and held a separate meeting with the Kuwaiti foreign minister, who is also visiting the USA capital. These words not only effectively supported Iran, but criticised the U.S. and Saudi Arabia's policies towards it. Qatari officials quickly announced that the news agency had been hacked, and the report was "fake news" - but it was too late.

Qatar foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed al-Thani said the demands were "unacceptable".

Among other things, Qatar's neighbours are calling for an end to its diplomatic and military relationship with Iran, the removal of the Turkish military base now being built there, an end to its support for "terrorist, sectarian and ideological groups" (mentioning the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, IS, al-Qaida and the former Nusra Front) and the closure of al-Jazeera and other media apparently financed by Qatar, such as Middle East Eye.

The fourth item is concerned with Qatar's submission of all documents related to the organizations operating on its territory to USA security authorities, while the fifth item is concerned with reducing attacks against Gulf states and Egypt.

Earlier, he said in a statement that Doha was ready to discuss "legitimate issues" with Arab states to end a regional crisis, but that the list contained some demands that were impossible to be met because they were not true.

Shut down Al Jazeera and other Qatar-linked news outlets. Bahrain accused Qatar of "military escalation" after Turkey last weekend airlifted armoured vehicles to Qatar and hinted it might send more troops. Kuwait has been acting as an intermediary between Qatar and its accusers.

The UAE's ambassador Omar Ghobash to Russian Federation has said on Wednesday that Qatar could face fresh sanctions if it does not comply with the demands. For Saudi Arabia and others elated by Trump's tough talk about fighting terrorism and opposing Iranian influence, the crisis is an opportunity to test just how far Trump's administration will go.

Opponents say the law is unconstitutional and will create a chilling effect in immigrant communities. Texas" " Sanctuary Cities' law could lead to major controversy in the cities themselves.

"This list of demands is non-negotiable and should be implemented in full", remarked Al Jubeir.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain cut ties to Qatar this month and restricted its access to land, sea and air routes before issuing a steep list of demands. Apart from this, it has also been demanded that Qatar should bring its relation with terror organizations like Muslim Brotherhood, IS, Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah to everyone and to surrender the terrorists present in Qatar.

But with the clock ticking - Saudi Arabia gave Qatar just 10 days to comply with its demands - the USA must manage this tinderbox, and quickly, to avoid fanning the flames while pushing the Qataris to prove themselves true allies of the United States and their natural Sunni partners.
