The Debate: Saudi vs. Qatar (Kevin Barrett vs. Frederick Peterson)

The Debate – Saudi Arabia-Qatar Crisis by presstv

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor  July 15, 2017

Why are the Saudi-led GCC countries REALLY ganging up on Qatar?

In my recent debate with Frederick Peterson on Press TV (watch it above) I suggested that it’s really about Israel. Bibi Netanyahu doesn’t like Qatar supporting Palestine, so he has pressured his stooges in Riyad, Cairo, and Abu Dhabi (not to mention Washington DC) to put pressure on Doha.

Peterson was horrified by my interpretation, warning that it could lead to global nuclear war. His unspoken implication was that the truth, too boldly spoken, could push the Zionist regime to lash out by inciting a regional war or even exercising its Samson Option. The safer alternative, then, is to use mealymouthed “diplomatic” language to obscure the real nature of the battle between the Zionist-imperialist forces (Israel, al-Sisi’s Zionist-occupied Egypt, and the GCC) and their relatively independent adversaries (Iran, Turkey, and Qatar, in order of relative independence).

Who will win this battle?

Qatar has vast reserves of natural gas and an impressive media empire (al-Jazeera). Turkey and Iran are large, powerful, democratic-Islamic countries with significant military, economic and human resources. All three nations espouse relatively sane versions of Islam (despite Qatar’s occasional lapses into sectarianism/Wahhabism).

The GCC countries, by contrast, are all comprador regimes standing in for Western imperial interests. They are brutal, thuggish dictatorships infested by backwards, authoritarian, sycophantic, obscurantist versions of Wahhabi Islam. Their partner, al-Sisi’s Egypt, is by far the worst human rights abuser in the region, having slaughtered thousands of peaceful demonstrators and brutally repressed supporters of the legitimate, democratically-elected government of Mohamed Morsi. These regimes are pure thug-ocracies. They are the Middle East’s version of Orwell’s boot stamping on a human face forever.

In the long run, the future belongs to the de facto anti-GCC alliance of Iran, Turkey, Qatar, Palestine, and their distant supporters in Russia and China. The dinosaur dictatorships in Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Cairo, and Abu Dhabi cannot continue to loot the Middle East and oppress the people of the region forever.

    All we ever get from Peterson who I have heard so many times on Press TV is AD NAUSEUM Jewish/Zionist propaganda and waffle. Just don’t understand why Press TV frequently invites this Zionist Jew as a political analyst.
    He just repeats his Zionist claptrap. never hear him talk about ISRAEL threatening the world with their High Technology, Operation Talpiot, Technion and the large Nuclear Arsenal, and all their state of the Art WMDS, chemical and biological that it is actually USED on Palestinians, Syrians and Yemenis which it is assisting in bombing to hell and back, and unleashing their Cholera epidemic and their Depleted Uranium etc..
    Peterson just churns out his usual WAFFLE and FALSE concerns for peace.
    He is such a damn LIAR. Always has been.
    Secondly, Kevin, the Muslim Brotherhood is NOT A BENEVOLENT Muslim Group. They were created and borne out of FREEMASONS by the British and such Societies have NO PLACE in ISLAM or any other righteous religion as t goes against everything God and His laws stand for.
    I do not share your support for the M.B at all. Their leadership has always worked hand in glove covertly with the British and the USSRAELIS as did Morsi who they then betrayed- they love to use and abuse their puppets..
    Muslim Brotherhood DOES NOT represent ISLAM at all just as WAHABIS DONT either. BOTH are MALEVOLENT.
    Peterson never makes any truthful points- just a windbag who enjoys the sound of his voice and his constant waffling. A Waste of time to debate and listen to as he propagates Israeli/Jewish political propaganda.
