People on top of peaks embracing while mercenaries sinking

Haila Al-Mashouh

The AlUla summit has demolished all agendas built on the Gulf discord and removed every reproof among the Gulf brothers in a fraternal encounter marked by wisdom, clarity of souls, sincere embrace and hug preceded by expressions of love, welcome, and hospitality.

Of course, this serenity that enveloped the AlUla summit, held on Jan. 5, 2021, has unsettled mercenaries and the trumpets of evil that feed on sedition.

The disagreement among the Gulf people and their leaders ended in one fell swoop with the return of relations to their purity amid joy and pleasure evident on the ground. It led to the opening of borders, airspace, and freedom of movement as they were before the crisis. The mercenaries see this harmony among brothers as a threat to their livelihood and survival.

This is happening in a region that was characterized by wonderful fraternal relations even before the establishment of the Gulf Cooperation Council 40 years ago.

The people of this region are united by their tribe, blood, family, neighborhood, and great historical positions, and hence whoever enters between them and tries to capitalize on their transient differences will only get disappointments, expulsion, and indignity sooner or later!

The 41st Gulf summit in the historic city of AlUla succeeded in reuniting the Gulf, calming souls and resolving outstanding disagreements fueled by some mean media trumpets directed at the coherent Gulf House. Based on this success and efforts to establish fraternal ties between the Gulf states, what we have to do is to ignore those trumpets and rise above their provocations while continuing to consolidate charters of fraternity, and turning the page on the past.

We have also to appreciate the efforts made by our country, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the leadership of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, setting the greatest example of forgiveness, generosity, good management, and reunification in managing the summit with openness, wisdom, and hospitality.

It is the duty of all of us to rise above all the troubles that may provoke us at the present time, especially since there are those who try to drag us to the bottom where they have sunken and wallow in its mud. So let us leave them at the bottom and remain with our people and rulers on top of the peaks!
