Qatar is Financing ISIS, Cash for Daesh

Gulag Bound

Gulag Note: After we help our fellow patriots and patriot media understand The Qatar Problem, it will be time to broaden our scope from there, to look at the overall network, not just heavily financed, also the heavies financier — and in points east and west, north and south… red, brown, yellow, black, and… white. Think Ottoman and not footrest, unless by that we mean all who are banking on their footholds among the denizens in Asia Minor. And do what our Denise Simon and Terresa Monroe-Hamilton (both of the Qatar Awareness Campaign) say. – AW

Denise says, follow the money and we see Qatar, a terrorist financing state. Our U.S. Treasury and State Department have rather quietly confirmed this status. After this article, see what finally getting done and creeping into the news: “Qatari Businessman’s Accounts Frozen over al-Qaeda Links,” The Times of London, October 20.

Part 1 of 2: Blow the Whistle on Qatar

Originally posted July 12 at FoundersCode.com

Several months ago, many members in the Gulf States have declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terror organization, but Qatar is a devout host and supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, the acme of global Islamic factions.

Then there is Hamas which holds the same stellar standing in Qatar as the Muslim Brotherhood and the Taliban.

Israel is the only Middle East ally and it is time for the West to come together and challenge the Qatar, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas such that this collective opposition would stop the constant conflict between Gaza and Israel.

The United States is complicit in funding Hamas and the Palestinian Authority and some of the facts are presented below.

Only this week did Politco publish a piece that Barack Obama enjoys almost complete favoritism from the Muslim world, while his ratings among Americans is in the 30% range.

Hamas has been at war with Israel for countless years, lobbing rockets from their arsenal of 10,000 into Israel without provocation. The recent kidnapping and deaths of three teens has nothing to do with the latest barrage of aggression, it was only a catalyst laying the false blame on the death of the Palestinian teenager at the hands of Israeli police. One has nothing to do with the other, it is Hamas as directed by Iran and the al Thani dynasty of Qatar.

  • Qatar is a rogue regime without dispute. [at commentarymagazine.com]
  • Israel was forced to release prisoners at the demands of the United States, Israel complied in order to get a seat at the table for the peace talks with the Palestinian Authority. Since the release, Israel has re-arrested at least 600 in part due to their return to Jihad, but it cannot be overlooked that many of those released sought and found a safe-haven in Doha.

And in summary…

Treasury official says Qatar sponsors terrorism

March 14, 2014

In the bluntest comments yet by U.S. officials about Qatar’s role in financing international terrorism, Treasury undersecretary David Cohen cited Qatar while speaking about state sponsors of terrorism during remarks to the Center for a New American Security on March 4.

Cohen referred to Qatar immediately after stating that “Iran is not the only state that provides financial support for terrorist organizations.” Cohen pointed to Qatar’s funding of Hamas and terrorists in Syria as problematic areas.

Previously, Treasury officials have stopped just short of suggesting official state sponsorship by the Qatari monarchy, focusing rather on private fundraisers and donor networks based in Qatar.

Excerpts from Cohen’s speech follow. Kuwait doesn’t come off too in his remarks either:

…But, distressingly, Iran is not the only state that provides financial support for terrorist organizations.

Most notably, Qatar, a longtime U.S. ally, has for many years openly financed Hamas, a group that continues to undermine regional stability. Press reports indicate that the Qatari government is also supporting extremist groups operating in Syria. To say the least, this threatens to aggravate an already volatile situation in a particularly dangerous and unwelcome manner.

With new leadership in Doha, we remain hopeful that Qatar – a country that in other respects has been a constructive partner in countering terrorism – will continue to work closely with us to oppose and combat those who adhere to the warped and murderous ideology of Hamas and al-Qa’ida…

[A] number of fundraisers operating in more permissive jurisdictions – particularly in Kuwait and Qatar – are soliciting donations to fund extremist insurgents, not to meet legitimate humanitarian needs. The recipients of these funds are often terrorist groups, including al-Qa’ida’s Syrian affiliate, al-Nusrah Front, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the group formerly known as al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI)…

Constraining this flow of funds is particularly challenging in an era when social media allows anyone with an Internet connection to set himself up as an international terrorist financier. We see this activity most prominently in Kuwait and Qatar, where fundraisers aggressively solicit donations online from supporters in other countries, notably Saudi Arabia, which have banned unauthorized fundraising campaigns for Syria.

Private fundraising networks in Qatar, for instance, increasingly rely upon social media to solicit donations for terrorists and to communicate with both donors and recipient radicals on the battlefield. This method has become so lucrative, and Qatar has become such a permissive terrorist financing environment, that several major Qatar-based fundraisers act as local representatives for larger terrorist fundraising networks that are based in Kuwait…

Part 2 of 2: It is Qatar, Stupid: Part 2

Originally posted October 6 at FoundersCode.com

If you live in Houston, the person next to you may be a Qatari either in country for medical care or working for a petroleum company either owned or partially owned by Qatar like Golden Pass Products.

If you live in Chicago, you may have dinner at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, owned by the Qatar Investment Authority. If you live in Washington DC, you may work or live at City Center, a fully owned Qatar real estate development.

If you walk through airports in Houston, Washington DC, New York or Chicago, you will see arrival and departure gates for Qatar Airlines. If your children are in university and want to learn Arabic, they are doing so with foreign language departments paid for in full by Qatar. In other classes, your son or daughter may be sitting next to a Qatari student or your child may have never been accepted to the school of their choice as that place was handed over to a foreign student instead getting in-State tuition. It should be noted that Sheik al Mayassa al Thani was educated both at Duke University and Columbia. He runs the Qatari Foundation that has it’s headquarters at City Center in Washington DC.

If you happen to work at a cargo port or two or more that imports natural gas, you may be employed by Qatar. One reason for terminating the Export Import Bank is due in part that the U.S. invests $2 billion in loan guarantees in a country that has an established wealth within the top world ranking, yet the bank supports operations for natural gas in Qatar that supplies Japan, India and the UK, such that the United Kingdom has enjoyed a $33 billion investment by Qatar that Great Britain received 85% of their natgas from Qatar.

Now, the United States has had a relationship with Qatar since the 1990’s and since that time, the al Thani monarchy has toggled their foreign policy relationships for many years, meaning they are manipulating for the sake of moving into a higher regional power.

This toggle/manipulation agenda is described as removing Bashir al Assad from power but yet Qatar works diligently with Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and the Taliban and Barack Obama has and is deferring all negotiations with those terror groups to the al Thani monarchy.

With a population of just 2.0 million, it should be noted that each resident is way above the norm for wealth and the style of living is so luxurious that up to 20% of those that live in Qatar are foreign nationals.

Qatar maintains a Shura council for day to day domestic policy and law enforcement. Political parties in Qatar are forbidden completely and their own Constitution is thin on substance, checks and balances and protections except for the monarchy ruling family and party.

When it comes to the United States and the ‘defensive’ component, sure America has CENTCOM part two there but another key military asset is al Udeid base that is designed to support efforts in Afghanistan, and this base has been expanded from the original footprint by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Secretary Chuck Hagel just recently extended a joint military cooperation agreement with Qatar for another ten years. At this location, the United States trains the Qatari military paid for by U.S. grants.

France is the largest exporter of arms to Qatar and Qatar maintains a large inventory of ‘stinger’ missiles which are sold, traded and smuggled through a black market. There are real questions that need to be answered as to why Qatar has received and bought huge numbers of various and high tech-based military assets for a military that is quite small in scale and without knowing the real outside threat to their sovereignty and safety.

While that U.S. State Department has maintained a very wide, deep and comprehensive list of terror groups, it is well known by the State Department that Qatar has key people that support these terror groups and coordinate donations from outside sources. Due in part to negotiations of the Iranian nuclear program, the Taliban, Gitmo and al Qaeda, Secretary Hillary Clinton and now John Kerry only mention these matters in passing to Qatar just to get it on the record, but otherwise nothing outside a feeble attempt to pinpoint these illicit activities has created any traction as our NSC and State needs Qatar for nefarious objectives as has been noted least of which is the Taliban 5.

The illicit activities include the facts that the Taliban 5 live in ClubMed conditions, Khalid Sheik Mohammed was provided safe haven in Qatar, Khaled Mashaal, the leader of Hamas lives fully protected in Doha and Yusuf al Qaradawi, a very old man, lives in Qatar running the Syrian and Egyptian Islamic jihad. Only recently did Qatar dispel a few Muslim Brotherhood leaders to Syria but they are well protected and other Muslim Brotherhood leadership remains in Qatar with funding continuing as it began during the Arab Spring from the elitists in Qatar. At the core of support for the Muslim Brotherhood objectives in Qatar is Emir Tamin bin Hamad. These objectives include construction projects in Gaza including electrical power plants.

Then in closing there is yet another satellite headquarters for Qatari investments that is located in Switzerland named the al Karana Foundation. This effort is led by Abdelrahman bin Umayer al Nuaymi and is well known to the global banking system(s) while no one dares to either challenge or exam the connections, transactions or causes that mostly will translate to funding going to terror groups that includes al Nusra and the Ennahda Party in Tunisia.

So you see ladies and gentlemen, dollars and terrorism is in fact a global enterprise that occurs even in alleged neutral countries, or are they in fact neutral?

Is the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Useless?

By: T F Stern
T F Stern’s Rantings

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been in the headlines of late as Ebola takes center stage.  The CDC, your tax dollars at work, advertises in its banner, “CDC 24/7: Saving Lives, Protecting People TM”.   Perusing their website gives you an idea of the importance placed on certain aspects they consider top priorities.

Then I read where a doctor who had been a volunteer working in an Ebola field hospital had returned to the United States, landed at New York’s JFK airport and given the ‘all clear’ by the CDC to go about mixing and mingling with the general population.  The only problem…the doctor wasn’t quarantined for any length of time and, as it turns out; you guessed it, the good doctor is infected with the Ebola virus.

The doctor, Craig Spencer, 33, returned from Guinea 10 days ago after treating Ebola patients there. Since returning, Spencer rode the A, L, and No. 1 subway lines, went running, used an Uber livery cab, and went to a bowling alley in Williamsburg called the Gutter Wednesday night, said Dr. Mary Bassett, the city’s health commissioner. He also visited the High Line park in Manhattan at some point, she said. He began exhibiting a fever and diarrhea on Thursday morning.

Obviously this doctor was high risk – so what was he doing on a plane, subway, and cab, then running and bowling in public places?! And how did he miss out on taking the ferry and LIRR, for good measure? Maybe those were his Thursday plans before he got sick.”

I’m so glad the CDC, that government agency using our tax dollars, “24/7: Saving Lives, Protecting People TM”, that CDC did such a good job containing a person they knew had been in contact with a contagious disease.  Just think about the folks that the CDC has no clue about, those coming through our open borders since things like that are not important to the Obama administration.

What about communicable diseases which are now being imported to the heartland of the United States from those who are not checked as they are welcomed with open arms and placed in our public schools?  Where is the CDC’s response warning everyone of the dangers of coming in contact with active Tuberculosis or God-knows what else has been brought here?

cdcuseless2Maybe the CDC should share proper protocols for dealing with Ebola contaminants with those who are working first hand with this crisis… like these two police officers who, after visiting Ebola patient Dr. Craig Spencer’s apartment in New York City decided to toss their safety masks and gloves in the nearest public trash can.

Moving right along…  We’ve been told by the CDC to get a Flu shot each year; but how effective and/or dangerous is the vaccine?

“A Johns Hopkins scientist has issued a blistering report on influenza vaccines in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Peter Doshi, Ph.D., charges that although the vaccines are being pushed on the public in unprecedented numbers, they are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”

{…}

“Not only is the vaccine not safe, Dr. Blaylock tells Newsmax Health, it doesn’t even work. “The vaccine is completely worthless, and the government knows it,” he says. “There are three reasons the government tells the elderly why they should get flu shots: secondary pneumonia, hospitalization, and death. Yet a study by the Cochrane group studied hundreds of thousands of people and found it offered zero protection for those three things in the general community.” (emphasis added)

The government’s pushing a Flu vaccine they know doesn’t work while using their arm twisting powers to force individuals to subject themselves to possible dangerous side effects, either that or lose their jobs; just wonderful.  This is the same government agency that can’t figure out how to keep one Ebola infected individual from exposing the population to this dreadful disease.

Exactly how much money is being wasted by taxpayers to keep the CDC up and running?

For years the CDC has been pushing a Low Salt Diet, saving us from consuming too much Salt even though recent scientific studies published in the May 4 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association don’t support the claim; to the contrary, “The investigators found that the less salt people ate, the more likely they were to die of heart disease…”

Saving us from catching the Flu even though the vaccine they’re promoting doesn’t work, limiting our Salt intake even though no conclusive data justifies it and making sure our society never comes in contact with Ebola; yea, they’re doing a great job.  Going down their list of priorities, at least these boobs have a handle on breast cancer.

The CDC is another example of government employees sucking the public teat and providing little if anything in return.

BREAKING: Amended Suit to Stop Additional Entry of Illegals & Ebola into USA

By: Sher Zieve
Gulag Bound

Gulag note:

From my observations of the work of Orly Taitz since 2008, I agree with my colleague that she should be carefully observed in this hearing. She clearly seems to have a track record of getting to important crises before others to take them to court, or in getting involved in the cases of others. Then, problems have all too often occurred.

Spoiled litigation can also cause grave ramifications. Much of the work of the judiciary is based upon case law. Someone who spoils litigation can effectively act as an agent that brings about legal precedent which is diametrically the opposite of the apparent intent of the litigation. This effect could be generated through either incompetence or intention.

Please do pay attention to this latest work. Patriotic America needs expert attorneys to attend such matters. — AW

ebolaBREAKING: Amended Suit to Stop additional entry of Illegals and Ebola into USA

On Wednesday 29 October, we have what may be our last chance to stop or at least seriously curtain Ebola’s now wide-open entry into the US. We need your help.

Dr. Orly Taitz is scheduled to appear before US District Court Judge Andrew Hanen at 10:00 a.m. Central Time. The case Taitz v Johnson et al is still active and Attorney Taitz will be providing her evidence as to why the case should not be dismissed and, instead, an emergency order from the courts should be issued against all unaccompanied children and others arriving from Central America and illegally entering the USA. Her complaint filed against DHS head Jeh Johnson and others within the DHS has been amended to include a ban on those now arriving–unscreened–from Ebola-ravaged countries.

In order to provide the best possible support for Orly, it is essential that those who can do so attend the hearing and make their presence known outside the courthouse.

PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND, if it is at all possible. Attorney Taitz has been working for all of us pro-bono to help save our country. Can we really afford to do less for her, ourselves and our loved ones? And, she could also use a donation. Thanks!

Qatar Awareness Campaign – Senator John McCain @StopQatarNow


QATAR AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

Senator John McCain
241 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington DC 20510

Dear Senator McCain:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar. In light of your unwavering support for the Arab Spring, it is important to weigh your concerns for “democracy” against empowering the nation’s enemies. The State of Qatar was a consistent advocate for the Arab Spring, precisely because they are the home of the terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood.

Even before President Obama, reacting to events in Tahrir Square, called for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down, you, Senator McCain, did so. “Regrettably the time has come 4 Pres. Mubarak 2 step down & relinquish power. It’s in the best interest of Egypt, its people & its military,” you tweeted on February 2, 2011. Mubarak’s resignation was the first significant step toward destabilizing the Middle East, which has led to anarchy across the entire region and the proliferation of Jihadi militias.

The power vacuum left by Mubarak in Egypt was filled by the Muslim Brotherhood, a revolutionary, stateless organization currently based out of Qatar. In the coming months, there would be government sanctioned pogroms against the Coptic Christians, as well as other religious minorities, in Egypt: entire faith communities came under assault from Muslim Brotherhood gangs, and dozens of Churches were burned.

The Egyptian debacle was repeated in Libya, as NATO airstrikes deposed a then-U.S. friendly Muammar Gaddafi. Once again, you publicly called for deposing Gaddafi, and supporting the Qatari-backed rebels. Libya’s Christians were treated as brutally as Egypt’s, or worse, and today Libya is a failed state tantamount to Afghanistan under the Taliban. It is a haven for murderous and revolutionary Islamists, smugglers and roving, lawless cartels. It poses a security threat to all of North Africa.

Even as Syria is under siege by the same ideological group of Jihadis, who have proven beyond reproach to be genocidal psychopaths, you still call for ousting Assad. While no patriotic American wants to support a dictator, the real question to consider is: who will fill this vacuum? Recent experience forewarns that something far worse will replace Assad and indeed they already control parts of Syria and Iraq – ISIS.

Each one of these experiments in capricious regime change has a common backer (besides you and President Obama) – the State of Qatar. Morsi was a Muslim Brother President of Egypt, fully backed by the Al-Thani monarchy in Doha. In Libya, Qatar had ground troops training al Qaeda “linked” rebels and even deployed fighter jets. In Syria, PBS has reported that the American government has trained Syrian rebels in Qatar!

There are more relevant facts to consider when evaluating your positions over the last several years concerning Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood:

  • You came out in support of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, whose family has been conclusively linked to the Muslim Brotherhood in Pakistan.
  • You were arguably the loudest Republican voice supporting the Arab Spring from the beginning. You called it a “collective demand for human dignity, economic opportunity and peaceful political change.” Yet, it has led to more indignities upon humanity than anything in recent memory.
  • After the Egyptian military removed the criminal Morsi regime, an action you determined to be a “coup,” you urged the punishing of Egypt by restricting military aid to the new government.
  • In Tunisia in April, 2013, you met with Prime Minister Ali Larayedh. Larayedh is a member of the Ennahda Movement, which is a Muslim Brotherhood-allied political party.

Additionally, Qatar is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell and profits from operating a virtual slave state. A recent press report explained how a Qatari citizen was the money man for an Al Qaeda group in Syria. His alias? Umar al-Qatari.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government and the Muslim Brotherhood to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery and drug trafficking!

Sincerely,
