Qatar is the world’s leading state backer of Sunni Islamic terrorism. It’s not surprising that one of its former employees would be involved in an attack or a plot. And that’s exactly what happened in this Jihad jailbreak over in France.
Hanane Aboulhana, who smuggled two ceramic knives into the prison holding her husband by pretending to be pregnant, worked as personal assistant to the Director General of Qatar Charity UK (QCUK).
The Telegraph disclosed in November 2017 that QCUK’s chief executive was a former Qatari official who founded a website instructing Muslims to hate Jews and Christians.
Yousef al-Kuwari previously founded Islamweb, a website that issued edicts saying it was “forbidden” to swear an oath to gain British citizenship and warning of Jews and Christians: “It is incumbent to hate them for the sake of Allah.”
QCUK, now called the Nectar Trust, is the British arm of Qatar Charity (QC), a Doha charity which has been designated a proscribed organisation by neighbouring Gulf states.
The charity had been bankrolling the construction of a mosque in Sheffield overseen by a Kuwaiti official who claimed Jews orchestrated the September 11 attacks. The official subsequently ceased to be a director of the mosque.
The rest was the usual Islamic settler ugliness.
Aboulhana appeared to undergo a profound change from the moment she met Michael Chiolo, who was already in prison serving a 30-year sentence for the kidnap and murder of 89-year-old Roger Tarall, a Holocaust survivor he suffocated during an armed robbery of his home near Metz in 2012.
Muslim violence against elderly European Jews is an ongoing theme.
The couple launched their attack when Aboulhana pretended to feel ill in order to attract the attention of one of the prison guards.
Shouting “Allahou Akbar” they stabbed two guards with the ceramic knives she had smuggled into the building through the prison’s scanners by hiding them inside her a fake pregnancy suit.
Chiolo was injured and Aboulhana was shot dead by French anti-terrorist RAID officers as she appeared to throw a substance at them when troops stormed the section of the prison where they were holed up.
Prosecutors established that the couple had wanted to avenge the Islamist terrorist Cherif Chekatt, who was killed in a shoot out with police two days after launching an attack on the Christmas market in Strasbourg in December 2018 in which he killed five people and injured 11.
As usual, nothing to do with Islam. And the Qatari charity is denying any ties.
