COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 4



>> Qatar is showing support for the Emir Sheikh Tamim and anger over a month long Arab boycott against their country. This graffiti wall in Doha another illustration of an outpouring of patriotic feeling that a month of siege has galvanized.>> Thank God we've proven to our Emir and the besieging state that the siege made us more loyal to our country.
>> Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the UAE announced on Wednesday the blockade would continue. They accuse Doha of supporting terrorism which it denies. Reuters' Tom Finn says young Qataris have taken to Twitter to mock them and praise the Amir. The number enlisting for the army has also gone up.
With only 300,000 Qataries, they know which side their bread is buttered.>> Qataris are the wealthiest people in the world per capita, and they tie that to the rule of Sheikh Tamim and his father. And they're talking about people who have lived in one of the most stable and secure corners of the Middle East.
In addition to that I think there's a sense of Qataris feeling proud that they have been able to punch about their way.>> But alongside the patriotism, a seige mentality, even paranoia, is creeping in.>> We found, talking to some older Qataris, people who have lived through wars in the region back in the 90s.
They were a bit more concerned, worried about military escalation and really hoping that this dispute was gonna be settled sooner rather than later.>> Qataris find themselves cut off from relatives and properties they own in neighboring states. Many fear that enmity could linger on long after the borders reopen.
