The idea here is to eventually seal the demise of the hateful and wicked regime in Tehran so the monarchy can be restored. It's essential for regional and global peace. And I won't trust Western European governments on the issue either, given their appeasement of the regime reflects their disastrous liberal worldview.

I wish for the restoration of the Iranian monarchy as well, but I doubt that's what on Trump's mind here. The justification he gives is Iran's nuclear programme, even though the country seems that they have complied with the deal made with Obama. Breaking a deal you have made with another country even though the other side sticks to it won't do America's reputation much good, and it won't be effective either since all of Europe (including Russia) won't go along with it. Therefore I can only view this as a symbolic measure from Trump.

Muqtada al-Sadr's meetings with Arab rulers is certainly something that won't sit well in Tehran.

It appears the Saudis and their allies are intent on controlling religious discourse more tightly...

Steve Bannon comes out in support of the boycott of Qatar, but goes further by comparing the situation to North Korea (!):

An interesting read on Saudi Arabia's turn towards hardline policies after 1979 and rolling them back today:
