First Syrian Rebels, Now Hamas: Qatar Once Again Emerges As "Mystery" US-Backed Sponsor Of War

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It was a little over a year ago when the "Mystery Sponsor Of Weapons And Money To Syrian Mercenary "Rebels" Was Revealed" as none other than the uber-wealthy Qatar (also known as the tiny but filthy rich state in the Persian Gulf that hosts the US Fifth fleet, better known as infinite leverage vis-a-vis the United States), which effectively had been pulling the US interventionist strings in hopes of taking out the Assad government and installing a puppet regime, one which would be helpful in facilitating the passage of a natgas pipeline beneath the country, which would then proceed into Turkey and all the way into Europe, as a means of bypassing Europe's reliance on Russia (which as recent events have shown has all the leverage when it comes to Europe).  It failed.

As a result it had to redirect its puppetmastery skills elsewhere. That "elsewhere" appears to be none other than Hamas, which is now embroiled in a landwar with Israel in a conflict that has claimed the lives of over 800 people. And while we did find the revelation reported by the Times of Israel as surprising, it is certainly not shocking in a world in which moneyed interests fund militants across nations in what has become an explosion of proxy wars around the globe (see Syria, Ukraine, etc).

According to the TOI, Israel president Shimon Peres "accused Qatar on Wednesday of becoming “the world’s largest funder of terror” due to its financial support for Hamas in Gaza."

A spokesman for Peres would not comment on the information on which the president was basing his accusation, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s former security adviser said Qatar was relentlessly financing Hamas terror.

 

Qatar’s recently attempted to transfer funds for the salaries of Hamas civil servants in Gaza, following the formation of a Palestinian unity government, but was blocked by the United States, which pressured the Arab Bank not to process them. But former national security adviser Maj. Gen. (res) Yaakov Amidror told The Times of Israel that the emirate’s funding for the organization’s terror apparatus, including tunnel diggers and rocket launchers, has continued unabated.

 

“Hamas currently has two ‘true friends’ in the world: Qatar and Turkey,” Amidror said. The small Gulf state is currently Hamas’s closest ally in the Arab world, after the movement’s relations with Egypt soured following the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi in June 2013. Qatar, which has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in reconstruction and infrastructure projects in Gaza, is also home to the movement’s political leader Khaled Mashaal in Doha.

 

The one supporting this organization financially, almost alone, is Qatar,” Amidror said.

 

Qatar isn’t only being accused of funneling funds to Hamas. Israel and Egypt are also blaming it for blocking Egypt’s efforts to broker a ceasefire in Gaza. On July 17, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri said that Qatar and Turkey were undermining Egypt’s quiet-for-quiet ceasefire initiative, a position echoed by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman.

Bloomberg admits as much in its latest sweep of the land:

Qatar and, to a lesser extent, Turkey are providing Hamas with alternative channels. Erdogan “has taken a very vocal and emotional pro-Palestinian line,” said Sabra. “It’s good for him domestically, but it limits his ability to play a regional diplomatic role.” After Qatari-backed rebels in Syria lost ground to the rise of more radical forces, “it’s not a surprise that they’re leaping at an opportunity to try to play this role,” said Sabra.

 

Israel, looking to its traditional partner Egypt, rejects mediation by Qatar and Turkey, particularly after Erdogan said Israel’s “barbarism has surpassed even Hitler’s,” according to an Israeli official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss diplomatic developments.

 

Hamas is looking at the prospect that Qatar would sweeten a cease-fire deal with financial aid for its Gaza government, including the salaries owed to about 30,000 employees, Elmenshawy said.

Israel also has objections against the Qatar-backed news channel Al Jazeera, whom it has accused of spreading "incitement against the state of Israel":

Another aspect of Qatar’s destructive influence, Israel believes, is state-backed news channel Al-Jazeera. Communications Minister Gilad Erdan requested of the Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Council this week that it stop broadcasting Al-Jazeera due to its “extremely severe incitement against the State of Israel as well as enthusiastic support for Hamas and its terrorist actions.” Liberman said his ministry was examining the possibility of shutting Al-Jazeera’s offices in Israel, Israeli news site Walla reported.

In the meantime, the diplomatic tensions as a result of the US breakdown of influence in the mid-east have managed to drag even largely netural regional superpowers as Saudi Arabia and the UAE into a conflict:

A diplomatic tug of war has been underway in the Arab Gulf between Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — both staunch supporters of the new Egyptian regime —  on the one side and Qatar on the other. On Tuesday, Qatari emir Tamim bin Hamad arrived in Jedda, Saudi Arabia, to discuss the Palestinian situation with Saudi King Abdullah. No details of the meeting were immediately available.

And so on. The problem as we showed last week with the following chart, is that international relations in the middle east are so complicated, virtually everyone hates, if not is engaged in outright conflict with everyone else.

 

So while the grand vision that US-backed Qatar (and hence Hamas) has in the middle east is still unclear, what is even more confusing is just what its energy intentions are (because in the middle east it is all about energy trading and/or the Petrodollar until its replacement with some other reserve currency of course) with Hamas, and Gaza are: after all the sliver of land is landlocked on the east by Israel and shares a small border with Egypt on the south: an Egypt whose allegiance so far lies with Israel, and thus will hardly assist Gaza in any capacity.

We hope to find out more clues about what quite confounding chessgame Qatar is playing shortly.

The action by Hamas against Israel seems to be harming Hamas (or at least the people around them) about 100 times more than Israel, so you are correct in saying Qatar is not helping them, but could be using them like a puppet.

Qatar... The national boundaries were not established until after the discovery of oil....  Oil concessions were the reason the British had to 'give sovereignty' to Qatar in the first place.

Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, sponsor pretty much all the terrorism in the Middle East, let alone the world.

A perfect example of drawing some lines in the sand, and thereby separating the largest concentrations of populations in the area, from the largest concentrations of OIL AND GAS. 

Bahrain

Qatar

Kuwait

Where do the people live?  A lot of them in Yemen, alot in Arabia (which is about the only one to have significant pop. and resources).   Of course these lands were unified with Turkey and Egypt not long ago, which reduces the amount of 'related parties' to the resources quite significantly.

"A perfect example of drawing some lines in the sand, and thereby separating the largest concentrations of populations in the area, from the largest concentrations of OIL AND GAS."

 Interestingly, can you guess where another of the large sources of natural gas is, trillion cubic feet?

"It turns out that Gaza has quite a bit of natural gas on its coastline. One of the largest sources in the region. British Gas, which holds a joint exploration agreement for the area estimates that the fields hold at least 1 trillion cubic feet of gas. That gas belongs to the Palestinian people and they should be the ones to benefit from it. Israel disagrees.

(An interesting side story on this issue: At one point Russia was bidding for a chance to develop Gaza's gas fields.)

After the death of Yasser Arafat, under questionable circumstances, Israel has controlled those fields, and British Gas has negotiated with Tel Aviv.

With power divided between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, the Palestinians have been too weak to put up any meaningful ,resistance and Israel would like to keep it that way. The Unity Government between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority threatens Israel's control of those fields, and as such it has to be destroyed."

The Gaza Bombardment - What You're Not Being Told

 

Hmm, terrorists seem to always be real close to natural resources. I'm sure its a coincidence.

We can criticize Russia, or the US, or Iran, or fucking Switzerland... and no one claims that such criticism is racism or hate.

It must be wonderful to simply dismiss all criticism of a single country as "hate"  -that way, you never have to spend any time wondering if that state might be in the wrong...because of its racial composition... which, to employ actual semantic (not "semitic") logic - makes you the fucking racist.

The point is Israel’s primary objective is to get Hamas so identified that it can then imprison what’s left of the Palestinians and move them out without any opposition. “Bring back Arafat,” they scream; “We need a peaceful guy we can roll. Buy him something and keep rolling.”

The news is the Palestinians have found somebody that doesn’t give up and that somebody is Hamas.

Since 1947, this is the first time the People of Palestine can say we’ve got somebody that Israel and the US and the UK can’t compromise.

Your seven up-arrows just prove that the Jews have the largest and most extensive propagnanda machine in history.

There is a whole level of inter tribal hatred within the various Muslim

Evidence that the Palestinians lack normal "fight or flight" capability: why else would they not move somewhere else with their children when armed thugs-USA/MIC supplied IDF assholes are shooting at them?

Yeah I understand that Gaza is small, but the scum sucking IDF do not have the entire city surrounded, so I think it is not a stretch that a normal person would take their family at least a few blocks away so as to not allow the fuck heads from Israel to shoot them.

Now if you have missles in your living quarters: the shit head IDF will fire upon that area and once again a normal person would not let their love ones stick around that place.

Cleary the Palestinians lack normal "fight or flight" and any asshole who lets his child(ren) stay in a combat zone (fight) is responsible for their death cause they could have ran away(flight).

but that's okay. life is supposed to be a constant fight because this is how nature works. nothing is for free and anything not worth fighting for just isn't worth anything.

There are an estimated 60 billion barrels of oil around the Falklands basin worth $167 billion dollars in royalties and taxes for the Falklands' government which will receive 26 percent of the profits from companies drilling for oil and nine percent royalties on every barrel sold, according to U.K.-based Edison Investment Research.

Oil Companies Undeterred

Indeed, after finding oil in 2010, the oil company Rockhopper Exploration, teamed with Premier Oil in a 600 million pound ($900 million) deal to drill the Sea Lion oilfield in the Falklands north basin, estimated to hold around 300 million barrels of oil worth more than $30 billion. 

http://www.cnbc.com/id/100537413#.

June 4, 2014


(Reuters) - Energy companies active in the Falkland Islands have leased a rig for their 2015 drilling programme, paving the way for oil and gas exploration to continue next year in the region contested by Britain and Argentina.


London-listed Premier Oil said it had contracted the rig to drill a minimum of four wells in the North Falkland Basin with partner Rockhopper.

Cyprus-based Ocean Rig UDW said it had signed a leasing contract for its Eirik Raude drilling rig to be deployed in waters off the Falklands for around 260 days.

At a time when America’s standard of living should be at the highest in history, the peoples’ resources are being stolen and transferred to international bankers and to Middle Eastern wars against the enemies of the State of Israel.

Americans are being destroyed in a manner different from the Palestinians, but we are being destroyed.

The point is, there is no established motive for Qatar’s support of Hamas, making it extremely misleading to jump to the conclusion that Hamas is working with the United States to provide the above Israeli scenario.

The worldwide propaganda effort from Israel and the Zionists in the United States, perhaps the most extensive and expensive campaign ever waged, has its primary objective to separate Hamas from the Palestinians. The same effort has separated the American people from the Tea Party.

Not covered by most US media outlets was the extensive protest in the West Bank up against the Israeli-guarded wall to Jerusalem where six Palestinian protesters were killed. The significance of these rising tensions of all Palestinians, including the West Bank, is not some sort of Israeli-US trick. Instead, this is a people crying out for what America’s Founders wanted so desperately: self-determination.

The Palestinians want their land back, their freedom back, their opportunities back; and the greatest military machine in the history of the world is trying to beat them to death. We need to be clear: soldiers are killing women in the streets and the American government is providing 100 percent support.

I’m getting tired of these made-up motives. These people are fighting for their freedom - 1.8 million residents compressed into 2,400-square-mile prison, 80 per of them refugees in their own country and half of them children.  This Israeli-US siege is intolerable; it’s time to stop pretending there is any parity between Hamas stones and primitive rockets and the Israeli-US war machine.

Your logic is Orwellian, HR. It is unbelievable that we have come so soon to "1984." In fact, the massive Israeli propaganda has a more striking similarity to Orwell's "Animal Farm" where the animals were constantly criticized for trying to believe their own eyes in the face of the tyranical pigs.

The new propaganda media technique is to portray the victims as guilty of the violence – and the perpetrators of the violence as the innocents. And then justice will be served.

When Israel bombs and Hamas throws a stone or shoots a primitive rocket to fight back, suddenly Israel is the victim and Hamas is the attacker. But the expansion of Israel into almost all Palestinian territory tells the story. In short, with a biased, Jewish-controlled media there can be no level media playing-field, no facts can be uncovered. In the current western media climate, the Israeli-American Empire, backed by its EU operatives, sets the tone, pounds the lie and never backs down. As in "Animal Farm," Diane Feinstein squeals: “Putin, you have to man up.”

Ten years ago, the people of Gaza could have gone in a completely different direction but they didn't.  When Israel left, they still chose to fight, they chose not to recognize Israel.  No one told them to build 30 concrete tunnels miles long so they could attack Israeli soldiers.  That's a lot of apartment buildings or schools not built.

Because of Israeli propaganda supported by Israeli media the parity between Israel and Hamas is always skewed as in your post. Take the current discussions for a ceasefire; where Israel would be anxious to agree but the evil Hamas would not, electing to keep fighting. But when one looks closely one sees the likely provisions of the ceasefire provision: IDF could remain in place, continuing its bombing and violent attacks on tunnels and Hamas would stop all rocket attacks.

In other words, a one-sided ceasefire. Also, with every agreement Hamas is asked to make, the border exits just get more limited and more draconian. What kind of cowed people wouldn’t try to tunnel out of an imposed prison where their families are tormented and starving, and being killed?

By the way, in the first 3 months after the November 2012 ceasefire, not one rocket came out of Gaza but Israel bombed Gaza dozens of times killing and injuring dozens of people.

America’s resources would have been used up and destroyed long ago if it hadn’t been for the incredible free enterprise road we were on from our constitutional right to individual freedom.

Perhaps you remember that the United States developed such a spectacular economic model that it literally lifted most of the peoples of the world who were willing to work with us (without America the world would be in mud)?

The Founders’ freedom-light touched the whole world. Now it appears that world is willing to bury the torch. Are these new financial power centers of the world--Beijing, Tokyo, Dubai, Hong Kong, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Brussels -- these new Americas, the new centers of freedom?  No. If America’s light is dimmed by the international globalists at the Fed, the world will have to take its chances with a billion rooms of darkness.

Rose Wilder Lane’s final point in The Discovery of Freedom:  Only a fool would believe the world…under the criminal greed of dictators…could not return to a world of wagon wheels and open fire cooking for the bulk of mankind.

As Lane said:

“The free exercise of natural human rights creates this New World. Stop this exercise of human rights, shed individual responsibility and individual freedom, submit to ‘control’ of ordinary human affairs, and this whole new world of economic abundance, this unprecedented wealth of food, shelter, health, knowledge, comforts, luxuries, pleasures, this young world of swift transportation, this dynamic complex of productive human energies encircling the whole planet, can no longer be improved, then no longer be created, then no longer exist.”

Bolivia has just lowered its working age to 10.

Their freedom?  Heck, they could have recognized Israel and had their freedom so freedom apparently isn't the objective.  As for being compressed, two generations in a row having an average of six kids per couple is the cause of that.  Don't blame Israel for their record child-bearing ways.   Japanese don't have six kids per couple, the Russians don't but they do.

As for going back home, valid point.  First there's peace.  Then you can have talk about reparations or compensation or reclamation but not while there's a war or no recognition.

Recognize Israel? I think you mean recognize Israel's dominance, Israel's continuing settlements, Israel's aparteid over Arabs who are permitted to work but most not to live in Israel, Israel's goal of annexing the West Bank and, of course, pushing the people of Gaza into a smaller and smaller fenced-in enclave. That's what it means to recognize Israel's right to exist. It means repatriating the indigeous peoples and ethnic cleansing.

And, btw, Israel's quest for a Greater Israel spans "from the Nile to the Euphrates," according to the founding father of Zionism, Theodore Herzl, which includes parts of Syria and Lebanon.

So now the Zionists think they have the right to control how many children the average Palestinian family has? Is that the Zionist party line now -- excess Palestinian children must be culled (killed)?

What do you think the Zionist response would be to Palestinians controlling the number of children they have? Some of the more reactionary Zionists have many children.

The Zionists have always had a policy of importing and otherwise creating more Zionists in Palestine so they can obtain and keep political control of Palestine.

…Israel's annual population growth rate stood at 1.9% in 2013, three times faster than the OECD average of around 0.6%.[3] With an average of 3 children per woman, Israel also has the highest fertility rate in the OECD by a considerable margin, and much higher than the OECD average of 1.7[4

More Wiki facts...

…Israel conquered the territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the Six Day War of 1967.

…In 1980, Israel officially annexed East Jerusalem and considers the whole of Jerusalem to be its capital. The annexation was condemned internationally and declared "null and void" by the United Nations Security Council.

…The West Bank and the Gaza Strip are still considered to be occupied by Israel according to the international community.[10

…Many Israelis[who?] object to the term "Occupied Palestinian Territories" and similar descriptions because they maintain such designations disregard Israeli claims to the West Bank and Gaza, or prejudice negotiations involving possible border changes, arguing that the armistice line agreed to after the 1948 Arab-Israeli War was not intended as a permanent border. Dore Gold wrote, "It would be far more accurate to describe the West Bank and Gaza Strip as "disputed territories" to which both Israelis and Palestinians have claims."[37]

…Israel has denied that it occupies the Gaza Strip, but three of the borders of the Gaza Strip, the coast and airspace, are controlled by Israel.[47][48] The UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967 stated in 2007:

"Israel remains an occupying Power in respect of Gaza. Arguments that Israel ceased its occupation of Gaza in 2005 following the evacuation of its settlements and the withdrawal of its troops take no account of the fact that Israel retains effective control over Gaza by means of its control over Gaza’s external borders, airspace, territorial waters, population registry, tax revenues and governmental functions. The effectiveness of this control is emphasized by regular military incursions and rocket attacks."[49]

I guess they have so many children to avoid extermination 'cause Israel kills them often and indiscriminately.

Google "Hornets Nest"

a plan by israeli intelligence to completely dismember and reconfigure the mideast according to their wishes.  along with US backing.

any utterances by Kerry or anyone else about not supporting israel are disinformation.  not that I care, really.  but it goes to show there are powers behind the throne and they run the show.

Where you from? Maybe you ought to go back to where you came from unless you're Navajo, Cherokee, Seminole, Creek etc. No statute of limitations on dispossession of nnative people. Arabs can live in 57 or more countries, and speak the same language and have same religion. Jews, one $#!T hole 8000 square miles.

I was on the floor laughing about Mark Zuckerberg being the richest man in the world. Sure, only on paper.

 

  • What are his liabilities?
  • What are his assets?

Has he fully paid off his debt obligations to declare full ownership to being 1.6 billion dollars rich or is it just a paper shuffle to WOW the public? Lastly, when the stock takes a nosedive; that number will just be a thing of the past. Ask Bill Gates and others during DotCom bubble.

Maybe it's time for Zuckerberg to call Stanley Fischer at the Fed for a fiat money transfusion. Or better yet, he could ask his new Facebook sales executive, David Fischer, to speak with his father, Stanley.

I just checked this, and what I found was very disturbing.

Yes, Stanley Fischer (Fed vice chair or whatever, former head of Israeli CB) is the father of David Fischer.

And a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Bilderberger.

These freaking people run the planet.
