The Brothers and the Gulf

Writing in Foreign Policy, Sultan al Qassemi explores the reasons for the Gulf states' suspicion of the Muslim Brotherhood.

By the early 1990s, the UAE's judicial and education sector was effectively a state within a state: The Brotherhood would make sure that those who qualified for educational scholarships and grants were either Brotherhood members, affiliates, or sympathizers. Within a short period, the student councils and professional associations -- such as the jurist and teachers union -- were turned into Muslim Brotherhood outposts dedicated to advancing their interests.

 

What Should U.S. Policy Be in Syria?

In the wake of American recognition of the Syrian opposition coalition, the Council on Foreign Relations asks experts for their opinion on what the U.S.  should do next. 

It is high time for the United States to get off the sidelines as allies such as Turkey and Israel, Britain and France, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been urging it to do. As a first step, Washington should assemble a coalition to enforce a no-fly zone over Syria. The United States would have to take the lead in dismantling Syrian air defenses, but could then hand off the enforcement of the NFZ to allies, as was the case in Libya.
