Dr Pipes,

Very good article

Here is the real problem: Qatar pays lots of money to Think Tanks and the "legacy media" (the old media the likes of WaPo and NYT) and western politicians. The goal is to influence policy makers in the West so Islam becomes the "religion of peace" and the fascist Muslim Brotherhood becomes a democratic party and Islamophobia is for real!

Remember that Nasser alerted the West and Israel to the dangers of radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood and no one listened and the same is happening now

Yes, see here for some examples of Qatar buying think tank influence: http://www.danielpipes.org/14918/think-tanks-foreign-money

But "Nasser alerted the West and Israel to the dangers of radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood"? I don't recall that.
