Tout comme M.Morsi, ce qui lui avait valu des critiques.

Egypt’s Interim President Adly Mansour will make his first official visit to Saudi Arabia on 7 October, followed by brief trips to the UAE and Kuwait.

Arab League states' views on Syria response far from uniform

Arab League states’ views on Syria response far from uniform

The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait pushed for the resolution blaming the Syrian regime for the attack. The Saudi foreign minister, Saud Al Faisal, speaking later in Jeddah, said that Syria’s use of chemical weapons required a “firm and serious” response, adding that Mr Al Assad’s government had “lost its Arab identity and is no longer affiliated in any way for the Syrian civilisation”.

But Algeria objected to language in the resolution, including wording carried over from recent league resolutions on Syria, supporting the right of member countries to assist Syrians fighting in “self defence”. Iraq also abstained from voting on that paragraph, as well as one condemning the Syrian regime for the chemical weapons attack.

Egypt’s government, meanwhile, urged countries to wait for the results of an investigation by UN weapons inspectors in Damascus before assigning blame for a chemical attack. Lebanon abstained from voting on the resolution altogether.

These divisions over Syria are not new, but they have widened in recent months.

Lebanon Shiites ousted from Gulf as Hezbollah fans

Like many Shiite Muslims working in the oil-rich Gulf state, Farhat says he popped up on the country’s deportation radar merely because of his sect, which its Sunni rulers associate with the Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah.

“I felt like a criminal, but I did not know what I did wrong,” said Farhat, who had lived in the UAE for 15 years before his expulsion in May. “It seems that my only crime was that I am Shiite.”

Long considered by authorities as a security threat, hundreds of Shiites have been quietly expelled from the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Arab states on suspicion of being supporters of Hezbollah. The deportations have surged in recent months after the group publicly joined the civil war in Syria on the side of President Bashar Assad, an archenemy of the Gulf’s rulers.
