finds some info on how Qatar, like Turkey, wants to be seen as another Islamic country that's legitimizing Hamas in the flotilla monstrosity, and has helped bankroll them. From MEMRI
The Qatari daily Al-Raya argued that Turkey, which had played a central role in the flotilla, and Qatar, which offered to finance a lawsuit against Israel for attacking the flotilla, are spearheading the struggle against Israel: "With its clear positions, Turkey revealed the Arabs' true colors. Qatar, in pledging to bear the costs of the legal proceedings against Israel, proved to the world that it is always the first to support Arab rights. As such, it is the conscience that senses the pulse of the Arab and Islamic public, which demands that Israel be held to account and that the exploitative siege on Gaza be ended. It is no wonder that, spearheaded by Qatar and Turkey, the Arab and Islamic public is demanding an international account from Israel and an end to the siege on the Palestinians...
"The Arabs must understand that turning to the Security Council is of no avail regarding Israel, since it will [always] find someone [in the Council] to support it. It is the Arab leaders that must immediately find a way to break the siege on Gaza. Only thus will they rise to the level of their peoples. They must know that Turkey, in its firm stances vis-à-vis Israel, has put all the Arab leaders to a difficult challenge and test, and that Qatar, in its absolute support of the Palestinians and of Turkey's position, has drawn a roadmap for the Arab [leaders] – who need to meet the challenge and the goals of the Arab and Islamic public..."
Goes in well with another post I did about this case
. In a number of years, Qatar is likely to rank right down there with Turkey at the bottom of a pit of disgrace.
