A Qatari minister, who justified Doha-Tehran relations and called Iran as an "honourable" country, has sparked outrage among twitteratis.
The statement given by Qatar's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and representative at the Cairo-based Arab League, Sultan bin Saad Al Muraikhi, triggered widespread reaction from the people, who wondered: What honour he was talking about.
"Iran is an expansionist state, and seeks to destroy, take over the Arab homeland, its lands and bounties", they said, adding that "Doha supports terrorist and extremist groups, works on training and arming the terrorists and militias". They said that Qatar also exports radical and sectarian ideas in many Arab countries.
"Qatar is on way to become subservient to Iran as it allows Tehran to breach its sovereignty, control its foreign policy matters and run its domestic affairs", they said, noting that now Doha has become the mouthpiece of Tehran, and turned to be its main agent and spy in the Arab region.
In their tweets which flooded the social media networks, they called for ousting Qatar from the Arab League, suspend its membership, toughen up economic, trade and political sanctions on it, and sue it in different international arenas.
They also demanded filing lawsuit against Qatar for its subversive acts in many countries in the region, supporting terrorist and extremist outfits with money, arms and training, which resulted in claiming many lives in Arab states.
They rejected any reconciliation with Qatar because of its misleading policies, and which has absolutely no intention to heed to the demands of the Arab quartet: Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, nor would it categorically accept shutting down Al Jazeera channel, which broadcast seditious ideas, incite terrorism and violence and feed the youth in the region with extremist ideologies as well as instigate peoples against their leaders.
In their tweets, they said the so-called "honourable" Iranian regime, which the Qatar representative had referred to, committed destructive acts what no other country in the world had done.
They said over the decades the Iranian regimes had carried "terrorist operations" as part of their foreign policy, and had carried out many "bombing operations and assassinations" in several countries in the world.
Moreover, Iran had attempted to overthrow the governments, and tried to assassinate rulers in the GCC and Arab regions. It also had a dark record in the Arab world.
