Despite its relatively small geographical area, this state floats on a sea of gas fields, enabling it to accumulate a giant financial portfolio that is moved to its rulers, who are already ignorant of the science of money management, only ready to finance any project without regard to its economic merits and objectives, or its negatives and pros, it is only important that Qatar’s name appears on the front line.
“It is true that America has a strong relationship with Doha, but the former Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa, was a ruler without vision, with only money and only knowing to talk about money and his willingness to pay the costs,” says former U.S. President Barack Obama in his book Promised land.
Middle east online published a profile of “Country Papers, “Country Papers,” an investigative investigation by French journalists Christian Chino and Georges Malbrunot on funding from Qatari institutions, particularly Qatar Charitable, for Islamic associations and parties based in Europe, drawing on a huge amount of e-mails and documents exchanged between Qatar Charitable Trusts and associations that have benefited from their donations, which the investigation has shown are often linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Documents submitted and commented on by the two journalists include bank transfers, transfer orders and tables containing funds allocated for the construction of mosques, private schools and Islamic centers, as well as the purchase of real estate, land and other transactions.
Because the amounts of money disclosed are not small, the authors raise questions and try to answer them, such as: “For what purpose does a country as large as the French island of Corsica and its 200,000 citizens seek to convert churches into mosques in Sicily?” or “Build a huge Islamic center in Melhos?” Or “funding a high school in the suburb of Lyon?” And, “What’s the point of all this activity?” And,” which Islam seeks to spread it in this way?” And, “Should I be careful of it?” “Is it in line with the values underlying the French republican system?”
The two journalists launched their investigation from Doha to be updated by some about the program “Ghaith” supervised by Sheikh Ahmed al-Hammadi, which sends money to France and other European countries in the form of donations, and aspires to be “the first engine for spreading Islamic advocacy and culture in Europe and the world”.
They noted in the offices of the “Charity” in the Qatari capital a map revealing program funded around the world, including 8,148 mosques, 490 Koranic centers and 138 Mosques and Islamic centers in Europe, which raises suspicions that all of these funds are mainly intended to support the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist organizations in these countries, with remittances reaching 72 million euros, distributed to 14 European countries, of which 15 million euros were allocated to France alone.
In the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Qatar Charitable was placed under the surveillance of the U.S. administration, which suspects it of financing the activities of al-Qaeda terrorists, the authors said.
According to the authors, this Qatari project directly inspires the theory of Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, by transforming Islam into a comprehensive tool that defines the direction of everything in society and the state, particularly education and politics.
The authors emphasize the emergence of basic evidence through their investigation, showing that “the funding network on which Qatar charitable depends across France and Europe as a whole overlaps with the Muslim Brotherhood network, as if Doha, with its humanitarian arm Qatar Charity and the Ghaith program, operates as a financial pump to water the entire ecosystem of local Islamic associations associated with the European Brotherhood Galaxy.”
Through this, we see only one chapter of the Qatari regime’s crimes, which is the financing of terrorism, and the picture is complemented only by a map of the Middle East countries torn apart by terrorism with Qatari funds and tools through the spring revolutions, which appear bright while carrying the smell of blood and ruin.
