The Arab world is witnessing a series of revolutions and conflicts in many Arab countries. The Arab Spring that took place in the late 2010 led to significant changes in the regimes of a considerable number of Arab countries and had dramatically transformed the political landscape of Arab countries. These seismic changes in the Arab world created new geopolitical dynamics, regional instability and great uncertainty .In 2017, a new crisis emerged in the horizon when Saudi Arabia and its allies ( United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Yemen) cut diplomatic relations with Qatar and impose a de facto blockade of the country which foreboding catastrophic consequences on the region. This is the most serious diplomatic crisis between Gulf Arab states for decades. It is taking place in a specific context; just after US President Donald Trump specified on 21 May the orientations of his foreign policy in the Middle East. Tensions between Saudi Arabia and its allies on one hand, and Qatar on the other hand, would escalate and worsen the situation rather than figuring out a midway solution to their conflicts.
