Dubai's outspoken police chief Dhahi Khalfan said in March there was an "international plot" against Gulf states by the Muslim Brotherhood organization. Two weeks ago Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan started a protest incited by HQ in Egypt. The illness of Saudi King, a key U.S. ally, has stirred speculation for power struggle, and we don’t know to what extend Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has influence in the kingdom.Thomas Friedman has recently said “Iran is political Islam in power with oil to buy off all the pressures. Saudi Arabia is political Islam in power with oil. Egypt now is a political Islam in power without oil".
