Hajj and the Qatari catalog

Published: Updated:

The plot of the coup regime in Qatar to internationalize Hajj has not come to me as a surprise. In fact, ever since this regime has taken over the reins, it has never hesitated to participate openly and secretly in anything that threatens the security and stability of Saudi Arabia in particular and the Arab countries in general.

Indeed, the best way to describe and interpret coup policies in Qatar is through the famous psychologist Sigmund Freud instead of using the interpretations of political scientists. It is the inferiority complex. There is no one happy today as the coup leader of Qatar, Hamad Bin Khalifa.

He loves the interest and seeks throughout his political life to have “some value.” As his country’s geographical size is limited, he decided to add an extra value by being a privileged player for the role of opposing partner. He is a member of the League of Arab States but he decided to oppose the founding and host country.

Poisoning media against partners

He conspired against Egypt and did the same with his brothers, the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Of course, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Iraq and Yemen received their share of Arab malice.

There is a catalog and reference created by the coup regime in Qatar in dealing with partners and allies, by using the poisoned media against them, to raise voices opposing them and to provide material and moral support, and to provide armed support to the opposition groups and terrorist in these countries to provoke unrest and sedition.

In the Qatari’s catalog of dirty policies, there are pages that recognize the coup regime as red lines for allies such as supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and support for the armed groups in Bahrain, Eastern Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Yet, it offers its work because of its enormous deficiency complex.

The Qatari regime is based on the purchase of debts and there is a price for everything. This is the ethical line that it chooses to walk

So work. Today, by calling for the internationalization of Haj, the coup regime in Qatar is aware that it will open the line of confrontation with Saudi Arabia, the only country that has a land border with it, and the largest commercial partner with extraordinary political, economic and religious burdens.

All this is sacrificed by the coup regime in Qatar to satisfy the lack of maturity and political arrogance. We have a modern “Nero” scene, a ruler who burns his country to please his own ego. These are not policies but a state of psychological illness and ego.

Hatred and conspiracy

The size and volume of hatred and conspiracy which is revealed daily by the coup in Qatar against Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, is not only disgusting, but frightening. How could a psychopath man has been silent for so long? The regime of the coup in Qatar is based on the purchase of debts and there is a price for everything. This is the ethical line that it chooses to walk.

Therefore, it is not only ready to ally itself with the devil but also to be the devil itself, which he has practiced so ably for so many years. It is true that the repeated statement is that the boycott decision is not directed against the people of Qatar, but against the policies of the coup, but the people of Qatar must answer the question honestly. Is it acceptable to them a regime without morals or conscience? This question needs a practical answer from the wise men of Qatar.
