The Saudi Coalition Is Right. Qatar's Support for the Muslim Brotherhood Must Not Stand

| July 19, 2017

It is now over two weeks since Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and Bahrain informed Qatar that it had 10 days to comply with 13 demands or face further isolation and sanctions. While the demands are diverse, most of them are related to the central issue uniting the anti-Qatar bloc: Qatar’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).

The Saudi coalition knows what the experiences of numerous Muslim governments have long proven: the MB is an oppositionist movement that does not represent a sustainable form of governance, offers little in the way of  social or economic programmes, and some of its members have been linked to political violence and jihadist terror.
