CAIRO –27 July 2017:The Qatari regime is “confused” after four Arab countries announced a new terrorism list that involves support from Doha, Mona Al Sulaiti, a Qatari opposition figure, said in a Tuesday statement.
Sulaiti said Tamim bin Hamad, the “emir of terrorism and extremism,” is confused, because the list announced by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain “confirms” his country’s involvement in supporting and financing terrorism in the region.
"The public in Qatar is in a state of fear and anticipation, especially as the Qatari government is confused," Sulaiti added.
Sulaiti emphasized that Qatar's current situation is very worrying and that all countries close to it, including Iran and Turkey, are ultimately interested only in Qatari money.
She added that the Qatari people have no confidence in these countries, especially Iran whose people suffer from crises, pointing out that Iran has “unlimited power” inside the Qatari government; many influential figures inside the Qatari government are loyal to Iran.
Qatari opposition activist, a sister of Qatari Communications Minister Jassim Al Sulaiti, claimed that her brother was in charge of providing weapons to terrorist groups in Egypt when former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi was in power.
She accused the Amiri Diwan of Qatar of funding terrorist groups, exposing Qatari Amir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani as being a follower of the policies shaped by his parents Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Sheikha Mozah.
She described them as major supporters of militant groups, linked to al-Qaeda, Israel, the hardline terrorist Taliban movement, the Houthi rebel movement in Yemen and the designated-terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood.
Sulaiti said that she resorted to leaving Qatar after her human rights were breached. Her university degree was withdrawn and she was arrested, then she felt that she did not belong to Qatar as long as her staying there put her life and future in danger.
