This is a Deutsche Welle interview.
Tough questions like these directed from the US media to a Qatari spokesperson would be completely inconceivable. While European media outlets routinely report on Qatari human rights violations and support for terrorism, and we are talking about lefty outlets like The Guardian and The Independent, American media takes its marching orders from Qatar. In the case of the Washington Post and Khashoggi, literally.
Meanwhile, Qatar, an Islamic terror state which closely backs the Muslim Brotherhood and its Hamas affiliate, has been allowed to operate in Israel because it claims that its humanitarian projects prevent conflict. The more practical reality is that Israel doesn’t want to go up against Qatar in D.C. The outcome would be far from certain even in the Trump era, considering that Qatar Air won the administration’s support over United Airlines and other major carriers. And yet, Israel can’t continue allowing this wealthy terror state to operate in its borders.
This Deutsche Welle interview shows why.
Q: What would you call blowing up civilians on buses?
A: It’s violence that’s not acceptable against civilians. It’s NOT terrorism since we have Israeli occupation that kills women and children.
