WikiLeaks documents prove that the United States has known for quite some time (years) that the fictitious pseudo-state of Qatar bankrolls Hamas as part of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Ikhwan. While Iran is the world’s major facilitator of terror, Qatar is their bank. The US Administration knows this well.
Qatar is a feudal mini-state whose population is rife with slaves and eunuchs (camel jockeys, for racing, are best when they are made eunuchs – castrated – as young boys). Most of them are bought in the slave markets of East Africa.
This abomination of a country has been ruled by the Al Thani family for almost 200 years (according to the CIA Worldbook). Among other things, the family owns and controls the Al Jazeera Media Network. In size it is the world’s 166th country. It has a nominal population of slightly over two million, of which 75% are between 25 to 54 years of age. In other words, it is an aging population with fertility significantly below replacement.
This is the banker to the world of terror – Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Boko Haram and more. They tend to pay more attention to Sunni organisations than to Shia. I say “more attention” but they have no problem funding Hezbollah and Syria, as well, just more quietly.
They also supply a large percentage of the gas for most East Asian countries – Japan, China, India (prime source), Singapore and others. This is their principal export, other than terror. During the past month or so, we have seen that the senior members of Hamas also live there – in a very high state of luxury. They import everything in order to survive. There is no native industry other than petroleum and no agriculture. 100% of their electricity is made from fossil fuels, in extremely dirty plants.
In terms of the present conflict between Gaza and Israeli, Qatar is the problem and not the solution. They create the situation, they encourage the situation and they make a point of forcing Hamas to continue. They have a part in every instance of breaks in the cease-fire (eleven of them, so far). The level of monstrosity in this current conflict is, to a large extent, credited to Qatar. The Gulf pseudo-state with the bottomless wallet bankrolls extremist Islamic terrorist organizations, as part of its basic ‘ruling’ philosophy.
By the way, this is not new. Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind behind the 11 September 2001 attacks, lived in Qatar since 1992. Ramzi Yousef, initiator of the attack, was Mohammed’s nephew. In a US Embassy report of 24 March 2009, Qatar is fixed as a main transit port for illicit goods (weapons, drugs, stolen goods). North Korea maintains wonderful relations with Qatar; big surprise there! US State Department documents attest to Qatar’s lack of cooperation in all areas concerning terror activities. Numerous US State dispatches emphasise continuously that the US Administration clearly knew and know of Qatar’s involvement in funding terrorism. They consciously choose to ignore this and do nothing.
The “Qatar Charitable Society,” the largest fundraising body there has been known since 9/11, by the US Treasury and FBI to maintain ties with al-Qaeda and served as a terrorist organizations’ front.
With their Al Jazeera network, one might assume they would be somewhat sympathetic to journalism. However, we now know that the Foreign Press Association contentions that journalists are routinely threatened in Gaza and forced to report what Hamas wants, is heavily supported by Al Jazeera/Qatar.
Qatar, by the way, shares one of the world’s largest natural gas fields with Iran.
US State cables reveal that Qatar works to sabotage international intervention against terrorism constantly and consistently.
