Qatar's Crisis With Saudi Arabia And Gulf Neighbors Has Decades-Long Roots

Al-Jazeera's Twitter account back after suspension

The committee criticized the extensive political and media campaign against Doha and Qatari institutions that are active in supporting the Palestinians, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reports citing an Algerian media source.

Qatar has denied funding terror groups.

But last week, US President Donald Trump expressed support for the Saudi-led allegations, charging that Qatar had "historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level".

However, the recent Gulf crisis spurred Turkey's government to approve sending troops to Qatar forthwith.

Objections to Qatar's well-known support for Hamas are based on the fact that this undermines the Palestinian Authority and Egypt, not on pro-Israeli sympathies. The television channel has always been a target for criticism by other Middle East countries, with Al-Jazeera banned on several occasions. "It also strenuously denies that Minister Carmelo Abela has made the remarks reported b y fox-news24.com, or any remarks whatsoever on the situation concerning Saudi Arabia and Qatar".

Ambassador of Qatar in the United States, Mashal bin Hamad al-Thani said in an interview with the Al-Jazeera TV channel. The six Arab governments accused Qatar of supporting terrorism, disturbing security and stability in the region, and supporting Iran.

If Qatar wants to avoid the prolonging of this crisis, it has to listen to what the four countries have to say and make a serious commitment to change. Egypt's Sisi: Boycott against Qatar should include Turkey.

Iran has urged its Gulf neighbours to engage in a dialogue to resolve their dispute.

"Trump has been tweeting and expressing on some occasions very clear support for Saudi Arabia but the rest of the US government apparatus has been taking a much more nuanced position", Juneau said.

Separately US diplomats and secretary of state Rex Tillerson have taken a more balanced approach given the complexities of the dispute and Qata'rs hosting of a US base that is key to its efforts against ISIL and home to some 10,000 troops.

Qatar hosts the biggest USA military base in the Middle East, with more than 11,000 troops in Al-Udeid air base, where more than 100 aircraft operate from there.
