The delay in finalizing the Qatari problem escalates the situation and makes us more distant with Qatar. The more mediators renew their efforts, the more Qatar thinks it is right and that everyone wants to please it. This only makes the Qatari command madder as it commits more mistakes. Qatar took things too far and exposed more than one face since the boycotting decision was made against it. As efforts to resolve the crisis renewed, Qatar negatively acted towards us and towards mediators as its media has been even working to obstruct mediations and prevent restoring things to normal.
Just when Kuwait’s Emir Sabah al-Ahmad dispatched an envoy to revive Qatar’s hopes, Doha’s media outlets intentionally acted like Iranian media outlets while covering Al-Awamiyah events in Saudi Arabia. They used the same terms used by the Iranian Kayhan daily! Qatar led to the failure of the first mediation efforts as it lightly dealt with the matter and published the demands before meeting with Kuwait’s emir. It’s now exploiting the Kuwaiti envoy’s visit to cross all red lines and side with Iran in how it sees Al-Awamiyah developments. It’s doing so although it knows that to Saudi Arabia, Al-Awamiyah is a national security matter and a red line. Qatar thinks it’s being smart when it disregards the Saudi Arabia’s security and Kuwait’s mediation. However, Doha must realize that when it begins to match its media policy with Iran’s, then it means it chose to match Iranian goals. Whom does Qatar think Saudi Arabia is fighting in Al-Awamiyah? Saudi Arabia, like Bahrain, is fighting the soldiers and servants of Iran in the region. Those who fortified themselves in the village of Diraz in Bahrain and in Al-Awamiyah in Saudi Arabia are fighting the Bahraini and Saudi states and declaring war against them. They are funded and trained by Iran. Qatar then comes and underestimates all these threats against the security of Gulf states! And it thinks these are nothing more than media debates?! And when does it do that? When mediations start again to save it!
