DOHA: For Qataris affected by the diplomatic crisis rocking the Gulf, the reality of politics is stark: families divided, assets frozen and dreams put on hold. Sara, a 29-year-old Qatari, had been poised to start her senior year in business school in Dubai when on June 5, a bloc of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia abruptly cut ties with her country. Sara, who did not want her surname revealed because she feared the consequences for her relatives elsewhere in the region, has an Emirati mother and a Qatari father.One Saudi mother, based in Qatar and who asked to remain anonymous, said she was terrified.She said she does not want to go back to Saudi Arabia, but fears that if she does not she will be blocked from accessing her late husband's pension, her only source of income.Her daughters, who work in Qatar, also want to stay.
