Bringing Qatar Down A Notch or Two: Egypt Summons Qatar's Ambassador

Population of Qatar: 2 million. Population of Egypt: 84 million. Qatar is upset with Egypt's political decisions? Too bad. Qatar: Kindly Shut The Fuck Up. If you love the Muslim Brotherhood so much then make them your rulers in your neck of the woods and leave the Egyptian people and nation alone to decide their fate. Don't act like war can't be brought to your doorstep and don't pretend that you live in some kind of oasis in the middle of hell.    

An excerpt from, "Egypt summons Qatari envoy after criticisms of crackdown" Reuters, January 4:
Egypt's foreign ministry summoned Qatar's ambassador on Saturday to complain about interference in its internal affairs after Doha criticized Cairo's crackdown on the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood.

The formerly close Qatari-Egyptian relationship has soured since the Egyptian army ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, who had been firmly supported by Doha, last July following mass protests against his one-year rule.

Cairo then launched a wide crackdown against Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood group and labeled it a terrorist group last week.

Qatar said on Saturday that the decision to name the Brotherhood a terrorist organization was "a prelude to a shoot-to-kill policy" against demonstrators who have been staging frequent protests to call for Mursi's reinstatement.

"Egypt reiterates that it will not allow any external party to interfere in its internal affairs under any name or justification," Egypt's Foreign Ministry spokesman Badr Abdelatty said in a statement.
A comment posted below the article linked above by 'nose2066':
Qatar is home to a large American military base which is central to America’s undeclared wars in the Middle East.

Qatar reportedly armed Libyan opposition groups during the undeclared war against the former government of Muammar Gaddafi. And in fact, Qatar admitted to having soldiers on the ground in Libya (They didn’t say what nation those soldiers actually came from).

Qatar provides money for weapons for rebel groups in the Syrian civil war.

They also have ties to the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Qatar is a quite a “hot bed”.
