Israelis may have to blame Qatar for the current round of rocket fire, if a report published in Arab media is true.

The pan-Arab daily newspaper Al Hayat reports that Qatar has threatened to kick out Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal if he agrees to any permanent cease-fire deal with Israel brokered by Egyptian mediators in Cairo.

Qatar heavily supports the Muslim Brotherhood, which founded the Hamas terrorist organization, and which backed Egptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s predecessor, former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, whom he forced out of power.

According to a Ramallah-based Fatah official serving with the Palestinian Authority unity government, Hamas has demanded Qatar be allowed to join the cease-fire talks. Egypt refuses to allow this, as does Israel.

Mashaal has been based in Qatar and essentially has served at the pleasure of the regime since fleeing Damascus at the start of the civil war there that was ignited by the region-wide Arab Spring riots in March 2011.

The question now is whether Qatar’s ire over its alientation in Cairo will extend to the influence of areas under the control of the Palestinian Authority unity government in Judea and Samaria.

  1. If this is true, Qatar should LOSE the right to hold the next World Cup. No international athletic competition has ever brought the world closer together. They are just exercises in nationalism and crass commercialism.

  2. Pro terrorist this country…tsk tsk

  3. This is the same Qatar that is now an ally with the US and is receiving billions of dollar worth of weapons including Patriot missiles and apache helicopters… Mmm… “Say, it ain’t so joe…”

  4. As far as I’m concerned, any reason for the IDF to reduce all of GAZA to rubble is ok with me. They are savage swine.

  5. Ed Kaplan says:

    Excuse my language but it’s time for Israel to stop ****ING Around! All these peace talks and ceasefires are Bull****! Hamas has no interest in honoring either one. The population of gaza voted them into office so the Palestinian population are as much a terrorist group as Hamas.
    Israel doesn’t deal with Terrorists so stop wasting time. Level Gaza and anyone who doesn’t want to leave and be done with it. Turn gaza into a sand box.

  6. Qatar can still be isolated by blockade, and some type of strike needs to be made on Qatar, US or not.

  7. Is anything true from them!!?!

  8. GOD BLESS+PROTECT ISRAEL+IDF+IAF.
    GOD LOVES YOU ISRAEL+IDF+IAF.
    WE LOVE YOU ISRAEL+IDF+IAF.
    WE STAND WITH YOU. ISRAEL+IDF+IAF.
    FOREVER
