Jordan emerges safely from its crisis

The participants at the Mecca Summit brought the curtain down on the economic crisis in Jordan. All bets which conspirators had made to harm Jordan and have it join the ranks of the Arab Spring states had failed. It was also proved, beyond any doubt, that the Qataris had, as usual, failed and did not gain anything after trying to separate Jordan from its traditional allies, led by Saudi Arabia, and make it join the Turkish-Iranian-Qatari alliance.

You can gage the Qatari government’s orientations through their Al-Jazeera channel which clearly showed how there are scoundrel opportunists, headed by the Muslim Brotherhood, working hard to achieve this goal by inciting unrest, protests and rebellion against the regime, as they did during the so-called Arab Spring. Their goal is to turn the table against the ruling regime, like they did in Syria, Libya and Egypt, as perhaps the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood may find a foothold in Jordan.

Indicators undoubtedly warn that Qatar will face tough years in the near future, especially if the US decides to strike the nuclear reactors in Iran. Iran will definitely not stand idly by, and it will respond by bombing the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar

Qatar's failed attempts

However, these desperate attempts have been crushed by the initiative of Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Kuwait, and have completely ended. Qatar, which rebelled against its Gulf surroundings, has appeared this time like a small lame duck that’s trying to gather its strength to jump out of the water basin it has found itself in. But Qatar failed and it continues to fail because it simply lacks the power to get out of this “basin.”

OPINION: Arab coalition’s stance in Hodeidah needs to be lauded

Indicators undoubtedly warn that Qatar will face tough years in the near future, especially if the US decides to strike the nuclear reactors in Iran. Iran will definitely not stand idly by, and it will respond by bombing the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar. As it is known, the Iranians do not own precision-guided munition systems, and this means it is very possible to shell Doha, especially that Qatar is a small state that is surrounded by water from all directions, after cancelling the Salwa canal project and digging the water canal on its western borders.

Therefore, the Qataris especially the wealthy among them, began to seek safe refuges outside Qatar after their “island” has become fraught with danger from all neighboring countries. Meanwhile, their politicians led by Hamad bin Khalifa who has all the reins of power under his control, still insist, with unmatched foolishness, that Hamad bin Khalifa can defy and resist what is happening. He carries this belief although all he has of the required capabilities is a television channel, which is managed by expatriates who will be the first ones to abandon him if they find that the end is inevitable.

All what I mentioned previously makes this disastrous end around the corner amid this absolutely irrational escalation which the Velayat Faqih state has resorted to in order to face the threats which worsen by the day.

There is no solution for the Qatari crisis, and for the Qataris, except to get rid of this mad troublesome man called “Hamad bin Khalifa.” This imbecile, as well as those around him, seems to have zero forecasts for the dangers surrounding his small state.

Jordan got out of its crisis because of the wisdom of its leaders, and Qatar’s attempts have failed. Is there any rational man in Qatar that can prevent this imbecile man, who is like those living in an arid desert that is surrounded by mirages from all sides, from pursuing this behavior?
