Hariri resignation could backfire on Saudi

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 12:32:06 GMT

All around the Lebanese capital of Beirut, posters of Prime Minister Saad Hariri have gone up proclaiming "Kulna ma'ak" -- "We are all with you." They don't seem to be an endorsement of Hariri as a politician; rather, they appear to be an expression of solidarity with man whom the Lebanese believe is in "captivity" in Saudi Arabia. It's a rare moment in Lebanon when country comes before sect.(image)

Zakaria: Trump's risky Saudi bet

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 04:45:26 GMT

The Saudi strategy does not seem to be working. The war in Yemen has turned into a disaster, creating a failed state on Saudi Arabia's border that is seething with anger against Riyadh. Qatar has not surrendered and doesn't seem likely to anytime soon. So far, the Shiites in Lebanon have acted responsibly, refusing to take the bait and plunge the country into civil war. But everywhere in the Middle East, tensions are rising, sectarianism is gaining ground and, with a couple of miscalculations or accidents, things could spiral out of control. With Trump so firmly supporting the Saudi strategy, the United States could find itself dragged further into the deepening Middle East morass.(image)
