"Qatar Island": Saudis Launch Massive Canal Project To Cut Off Neighbor


It almost sounds too insane to be believed, but Saudi Arabia's move to
further isolate neighboring Arab rival Qatar by literally turning it
into an island
is but the latest in an intense year long feud between
the two countries that has already produced its fair share of bizarre
headlines.

Tiny but ultra-wealthy Qatar is a peninsula which shares a 37.5 mile
border (60km) with Saudi Arabia on the kingdom's northeast side and juts
out from the Arabian peninsula about 100 miles into the Persian Gulf.

Saudi media revealed this week the kingdom is quickly moving forward
with ambitious plans to dig a 200 meter wide and 15-10 meter deep canal
the entire length of the land border, effectively creating 'Qatar
island' as some Mideast news sources are already calling it.
