United States Halts Intel Sharing With Qatar

The United States has reportedly stopped sharing intelligence with the country of Qatar because of its ties to Iran.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

British MP Ian Paisley Jr. told colleagues in the House of Commons last week that the United States is no longer sharing military intelligence with Qatar due to the country’s close ties to Iran, the Jerusalem Post reported Thursday.

Paisley Jr. said the revelation came from a report by the British geopolitical risk firm Cornerstone Global Associates detailing Qatar’s links to Iran-backed terrorism. The report warned that Israel’s renewed relations with Gulf countries such as the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have made Qatar even less willing to engage with fellow Arab states. Instead, Qatar has intensified cooperation with Turkish and Iranian media campaigns against the new U.S.-led coalition.

Adding to concerns about Doha’s complicity in international terrorism, a new lawsuit from American families living in Israel alleges that Qatari banks have secretly developed a backchannel with Palestinian terrorists responsible for killing U.S. citizens, sending millions to those groups.

The lawsuit charges that Qatari royal family members orchestrated “a terrorism financing conspiracy” that enriched Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, two groups considered radical terrorist organizations by the U.S. government. Plaintiffs say the Qatar National Bank has facilitated the transfer of money to those groups since 2014 through dozens of accounts, potentially enabling the groups to plan seven attacks that have killed several American citizens.

Qatar currently has the largest United States military base in the Middle East. The country’s alignment with Iran poses a security risk and strategic issue for the United States.

SHARE , NOTHING with enemies of the USA , and help none of these same countries, when they have a major disaster, mostly because of their back wards ways and living in the past, and their building fall and kill hundreds of thousands, and they spend the US FOREIGN AID , on themselves . They have never helped when the US was dealing with forest fires or earthquakes, they just stood back and watched. GIVE THEM NOTHING

Guess they forgot the USA saving their butts with Sadam! Next time they should be left on their own. They are a tiny country in the Middle East and subject to terrorist as an easy target and for Iran an easy takeover evidently. Move that base or bring our people and equipment home or it will Iran’s stuff for terrorist. Old joe must not sit his butt in the white house in this lying, cheating takeover of that seat.
