UPDATED 10:27 AM  (see Bottom) -- Overnight, a staggering series of actions began by Arab countries against the tiny nation of Qatar. Several countries have announced they are cutting Diplomatic ties and ejecting Qatari Diplomats because the country of Qatar is the single major source of state-funded terrorism in the world!  UPDATE: Any visitor or resident from Qatar in any of these Arab countries has two weeks to leave! ! ! !

For years, many have thought it was Saudi Arabia secretly funding terror groups, but these developments make clear it was Qatar all along!

Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen have severed diplomatic ties with Qatar, accusing the country of backing terrorist groups. Qatar has called the move a "campaign of incitement" which is "based on lies."

Bahrain announced early Monday that it is severing diplomatic relations with neighboring Qatar and cutting air and sea connections with Doha (the capital of Qatar), accusing it of meddling in its internal affairs. Bahrain’s state news agency said in a brief statement that Qatari citizens have 14 days to leave the country.

It accused Doha of supporting terrorism and meddling in Manama’s internal affairs.

Citing “protection of national security,” Riyadh then announced it was also severing ties with Doha and closing off all land, sea and air contacts, the Saudi state agency said in a statement, cited by Reuters.

The Saudi state news agency SPA alleged that Qatar “embraces multiple terrorist and sectarian groups aimed at disturbing stability in the region, including the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS and Al-Qaeda, and promotes the message and schemes of these groups through their media constantly.”

The Saudi-led coalition has announced that Qatar’s participation in its joint military operation in Yemen has been canceled. The coalition’s statement accused Doha of supporting the Al-Qaeda and Islamic State terrorist groups.

Egypt was next to join the diplomatic war, with Cairo announcing it is cutting relations with Doha, according to Sputnik news agency.

Egypt has closed all its seaports and airspace to Qatari vessels and planes, the country’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“The Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt has decided to sever diplomatic relations with Qatar because of the continued hostility of the Qatari authorities towards Egypt,” the Cairo statement read, also accusing Doha of supporting terrorist organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has followed suit, citing “support, funding and embrace of terrorist, extremist and sectarian organizations” as the reason for cutting ties with Qatar.

The UAE’s state news agency said in a statement that Qatar is “undermining regional stability,” Reuters reports.

The Emirates has similarly given Qatar’s diplomats just 48 hours to leave its territory.

Yemen also followed suit, accusing Qatar of working alongside its enemies in the country's ongoing civil war, Al Arabiya and Reuters reported, citing state news agency Saba. 

The government said it cut ties with Qatar partly over its support of extremist groups in the war-torn country, which were “in contradiction with the goals announced by the countries supporting the legitimate government,” AP reports.

 

“Qatar’s practices of dealing with the (Houthi) coup militias and supporting extremist groups became clear,” the government said in a statement cited by Reuters.

It added that it supports the decision by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen to remove Qatar from its ranks.

Alarmed viewers of the Qatari TV network Al Jazeera wondered why it was not covering the diplomatic crisis, instead tweeting pieces such as a video about hijab cosplay in Malaysia.

Al Jazeera finally broke the news at around 03:35 GMT, citing a “dispute over a Qatar news agency hack” as grounds for the crisis.

There was no immediate response to the accusations available from Doha, Al Jazeera said.

 

The Plot Thickens

Qatar is the country where the Clinton Foundation ALLEGEDLY stashed some $1.8 Billion Dollars last year.

Qatar is the home for the Al-Jazeera Satellite TV Network.

Qatar houses major US military facilities for CENTCOM,  the US Central Command.

Bahrain, next to Qatar, has also cut ties with Qatar and Bahrain is home to the U.S. Navy 5th Fleet.

 

EDITOR's NOTE:  This reminds me of a scene from "The Godfather" where Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone, meets with the heads of the five families to stop an ongoing Mafia war.  On the way home from the meeting, Corleone tells his Consigliere "Tatallia never could have out-fought Santino, but I didn't know until this very day, it was Barzini all along."   It is starting to look as though President Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia, where he spoke to the heads of some 50 Arab countries and told them "Those who kill in the name of God are an insult to God" may have had quite an effect.   It appears on the  surface, that many (or perhaps all) of those 50 heads of state knew all along WHO it was that was actually sponsoring Wahhabi Muslim terror attacks around the world: Qatar.  Perhaps Trump's direct talk made them all realize it was time to cut Qatar off?

 

UPDATE 10:27 AM EDT  JUNE 5, 2017 --

Citizens and residents in the country of Qatar are in an absolute panic over events which began last night.  Supermarket shelves are now reported to be EMPTY and citizens scramble to hoard food, fearing a complete embargo of Qatar by all their surrounding neighbors.

 

 

There is now even talk of war; and since Qatar's armed forces number only about 12,000 men, the country would not have any real means to prevent an invasion.
