Do you think that this will pressure Qatar to join the [Saudi-led] coalition?

I think that [in] the worst case scenario, Qatar will reel back its involvement with other regional actors, by being a center for Islamist financing, by supporting revolts in Libya, Syria, and Lebanon, and Yemen, And also using Al-Jazeera as a media tool against others ...

If the Qataris all of a sudden are feeling the physical pinch in their own territory – they can't access sea lanes, they can't access airways, they can't ship in food from Saudi Arabia – they will have a very hard time not complying with other GCC countries' demands.
