About Qatar

I think this explanation of the long term background to the situation with Qatar (from Fred Kaplan at Slate) is a pretty clear one.  Then the story in the AFR explains the current dispute in more detail.  (Thanks, Jason.)

The Arab and Islamic world needs more "unity" emojis and "we're all in this together" style hashtags, I think.

Steve, the link is not Fred Kaplan.

Is the problem an argument about what is best. Lead, rhythm or bass qatar??

Oh yeah - fixed up now, thanks.
