The rulers of Qatar are more modern, progressive and "western" than most Arab rulers. They finance the Al Jazeera news agency and website which is probably the most modern and objective of all Arab media. Though not yet fully-qualifying as a western liberal democracy, Qatar is closer than most Arab countries. Probably, it's the progressive nature of Qatar that annoys its dictatorial Arab neighbours. It's a typical shame that Trump doesn't back Qatar. But, of course, Trump is almost as backward and morally-bankrupt as many Arab leaders!
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!
