QATAR IS THE TARGET.
Several Arab countries have diplomatic attacks on Qatar in connection with the ‘support for the terrorist group’. It has created an unstable situation in the Middle East.
But this is not the first Arab country to face the siege of Qatar. In 2014, diplomatic relations between Qatar and Qatar were cut for nine months in the Gulf neighbors. The tensions started when Qatar’s Islamist party began to support the Muslim Brotherhood, the Saudi side alleged that the Taliban and al-Qaeda-supported groups are close relations. Besides, other Arab countries have not taken up the issue of Qatar’s good relations with Iran.
Recently, Saudi Arabia, authorized by the state of Qatar, al-Jazeera, has accused the media of saying that it supports Hutian rebels in Yemen. Houthi rebels are fighting with the government in Yemen, where Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates support government troops. But Rehman rejected the allegation, saying that anti-terrorism measures have been adopted in Qatar compared to other neighboring countries.
Qatar’s strong economy is now under discussion in the way Arab Arab countries are trying to eke out Qatar’s monopoly. As part of a deal for the release of the abducted members of Qatar’s royal family in April, a former al-Qaeda member in Syria and nearly one billion dollars in ransom for security officials of Iran. The 26 raiders of Qatar were kidnapped by Iraqi Shiite militias in December. And in response to Qatar’s ‘giving support to terrorist groups and financing’ in connection with the liberation of militias in exchange for their release, the complaint is also uprooted.
Since 9/11, more and more countries in the United States, including the United States of America, have been forced to stop militant financing.
The United Nations Security Council resolution, including domestic laws, was passed. Suspicious paths that can help with financing are also gradually closed. For example, many remittance companies and charity companies are closed. But in spite of this, questions about anti-terrorism activities in Qatar and some countries continued to rise. US Treasury Department and Economic Intelligence Department official David Cohen said in a statement in 2014, “The longtime ally Qatar has funded Hamas for many years, which does not want regional stability.
There are also media reviews that Qatar is helping extremist corporations in Syria. with the aid of relating to Qatar’s regime, he also indicated that the investment for al-Qaeda and the so-known as Islamic kingdom militant may be carried out without problems in us of a.
Adam Subin, who replaced Cohen in the US Treasury Department in 2016, also said in a statement that Qatar would have to ‘do a lot of work’ to prevent ‘financing terrorism’. He said the political will is enough to enact anti-terrorism economic laws to prevent the threat of alcoholism in the country. At that time, the United States issued a ban on the funding of some Qatar citizens for their alleged financial funding.
But like Qatar, Saudi Arabia also had to face criticism and questions. Of the 19 air strikes that took place in 9/11, 15 of them were citizens of Saudi Arabia. US diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks found in 2009 show that the United States’ continued frustration with the Saudi government’s strategy to stop terrorism financing.
The Saudi government has also used its resources to spread Wahhabism around the world, including schools and mosques, which have been alleged to have become a major source of extremism spreading. Although few people and organizations in Saudi Arabia are accused of supporting terrorism. Saudi government’s efforts and support to counter terrorism are much more acceptable than Qatar.
And recently during the visit of US President Donald Trump to Saudi Arabia, the two countries have announced to work together to counter terrorism. Terrorism is a big threat and the announcement of the gathering of all to combat it. It is understood that Washington thinks that if problems of militant financing can be tackled, the problems of the Gulf countries will also be solved. This commitment of Saudi Arabia is not a solution to prevent financing of terrorism.
Although the terrorist groups do not receive direct funding, it is the primary goal of policy-makers and security officials. Recently, the focus is on whether any person or organization is helping spread the ideology of Charpantha.
In December 2015, the House of Commons in London debated – about Islamic State militant activities from Iraq to Syria. There the then Prime Minister David Cameron promised that “if there is any funding source in the United Kingdom to stop extremism, it will be closed”.
Cameron promised to find out how much of the Islamic extremism is in the United Kingdom, its type, how much of the level, how much of the connection is with the external country. Recently, the media report said that it is impossible to make public if this investigation process is completed.
And the question is whether this is related to the recent tensions between the Gulf countries. Although such a crisis was created earlier, it was resolved soon. But now as the quake and question about supporting the terrorist group surrounding Qatar has been questioned – the capital for the terrorism funding and support of extremism ideology will probably be at the center of suspicion for a long time.
