Reporter from The National muses about Qatar’s role in the Arab Spring


@kshaheen: I’m struggling to find an analogy for Qatar in the Arab world today with its foreign policy.

@kshaheen: Perhaps the best comparison for Qatar is the early era of Gamal Abdul Nasser and his export of pan-Arabism through the media.

@kshaheen: Can see small parallels between Qatar helping Libyan rebels and Nasser arming Algeria’s revolutionaries

@ibishblog: Keep trying: the Qatar/Abdel Nasser analogy doesn’t quite cut it. But it’s an interesting project, let us know if you crack it.

@aalzayani QTR’s your cousin who turns up at the BBQ dressed in a tuxedo with his own meat and can’t stop talking about how much money he has

Anyone else want to take a stab at it?
