Qatar’s Islamist influence operation, Al Jazeera, speaks with forked tongue. In Arabic, it promotes Islamic narratives, but in English, it pushes wokeness.
There’s a whole LGBTQ category on Al Jazeera, but no actual room for it in Qatar.
Qatari officials have stopped a protest staged by British LGBT rights campaigner Peter Tatchell.
Mr Tatchell said he was “arrested and detained on the kerbside” in Doha on Tuesday following his one-man protest challenging the country’s treatment of LGBT people ahead of the World Cup.
He said he was later released and is now heading back to the UK.
The Qatari government said authorities asked someone to move but claims of an arrest were “completely false”.
