Bahrain BahrainAfter Saudi Arabia, the ambassador of Lebanon has 48 hours to leave Bahrain. The borders have been closed to all imports from the country of the cedars. The latest effect of the crisis is triggered by statements by Beirut’s Information Minister, George Kordahi. In an interview recorded in August and broadcast on October 26, the current representative of the Beirut government described the war in Yemen as aggression by Saudi Arabia.

A position immediately contested by Riyadh, which in retaliation ordered the blocking of imports from Lebanon, banned its citizens from traveling to Lebanon, and recalled its ambassador from Beirut. To ease the tension, the Lebanese premier has asked the Minister of Information to take the “right decision,” effectively inviting him to resign.

Kordahi – close to the Christian movement Marada, an ally of the militant group Hezbollah – had made statements on Yemen during a television program before being chosen for government in September.

“The Lebanese minister’s remarks reflect inadequate understanding and superficial reading,” the Gulf Cooperation Council countries said in a statement released on Twitter, according to which Kordahi “ignored” attempts by Shia Houthi rebels to obstruct proposed solutions to the war in Yemen. “The information minister of Lebanon should apologize, and the Lebanese state should clarify his position,” the Council added in its statement.

Mikati expressed sorrow for the Saudi move and requested the kingdom to review its decision. Mikati added that his government “categorically rejects” anything that harms the “deep brotherly relations” with Saudi Arabia. Kordahi commented on a TV program before he was chosen for ttate Muslim Brotherhood networks, togain influence across Germany.Besides sponsoring terrorism through conventional channels, Qatar has nowswitched to more lethal routes, including psychological warfare and information terrorism. The leaked documents revealed that Qatar Charity, thought its fund, has been controllingabout 140 mosques and Islamic cultural centres across Germany since it began its campaign in the country — the estimatedcost of which is believed to be around €72 million ($84.69 million).

In December 2018, three months after unveiling of Qatar-Muslim Brotherhood’s network in France, the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) in Germany investigated the terrorist organisation’s  network in Germany. It published a report which concluded that the Muslim Brotherhood poses “agreater threat to democracy than the terrorist organisations al-Qaida or the Islamic State…with the popularity of the institutions and the mosques which are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood is increasing especially in North Rhine-Westphalia.”

Chesnot and Malbrunot said that Qatar employed similar strategy as it did in France wherein Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani promised billions of euros of investment in exchange for German support and to keep things under wraps.
