On April 28, 2018, I read in the Kuwaiti daily Al-Qabas comments by Kuwaiti-Palestinian academic Dr. Shafeeq Al-Ghabra and valuable “advice” on how relations should be between Gulf countries and the US.
Ghabra’s statements were within a typical context that’s been dully repeated. He wants all Gulf countries – although we know that Qatar, for instance, does not represent the entire Gulf and its policies are closer to Ghabra’s advice – to listen to him and be convinced of his vision as to how ties with the US should be during Trump’s term.
In brief, Ghabra’s remarks are the same as the Al-Jazeera channel’s statements or other statements made by the Muslim Brotherhood’s platforms and allies from the remnants of the left and nationalists.
Trump and his policy intimidates and angers countries of chaos, destruction, terrorism and strife and dangerous political Islam groups. And we, by that I mean Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and many reasonable Muslims and Arab people, completely support Trump in this approachMashari Althaydi
