The Qatar corruption scandal has shaken the European Union. The revelation that the Islamic terror state was suborning European politicians has led to arrests and angry denials from Qatar.
Qatar can’t be criticized at all in the United States. It’s simply not allowed. And while you can question Qatar in Europe, the Muslim Brotherhood is off-limits.
Take this Politico deep dive which carefully avoids addressing the obvious.
A Moroccan secret service agent, identified as Mohamed Belahrech, has emerged as one of the key operators in the Qatar corruption scandal that has shaken the foundations of the European Parliament. His codename is M118, and he’s been running circles around European spy agencies for years.
Belahrech seems at the center of an intricate web that extends from Qatar and Morocco to Italy, Poland and Belgium.
Come on, is Morocco really known for its high-end secret agents?
What might Morocco and Qatar have in common?
The Arab Spring allowed the Muslim Brotherhood and assorted allies to come to power. Some of these takeovers were undone. But, backed by Qatar, it’s been a rough fight ousting them and in some places, the Islamists remained in power.
The Justice and Development Party, took over Morocco in 2011 and has clung to power until very recently.
And the Muslim Brotherhood is closely backed by Qatar.
Whether or not it applies in this case, there is a fairly straightforward line from Qatar to countries under the Muslim Brotherhood umbrella.
But that’s one of those things no one is allowed to discuss. And if you think it’s bad there, imagine how bad it is here.
