(another) rift in the Middle East

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt UAE, and Yemen have cut ties with Qatar over alleged support for hard line extremist.

First Arab Spring and now this. Doesn't matter what anti terrorism campaign is peddled, anti-Israeli sentiment is raised, refugee crisis, or ISIS....the 200 ton elephant in the room of Sunni vs. Shia always resurfaces

Lol Qatar and the rest of them have always been supporting hard line extremists. It's all interesting because Turkey is still strongly supporting Qatar even though they're part of the "Alliance." We should start paying attention to South America, as they'll likely have their own "Latin Spring" in the coming years.
