Dr Pipes

Qataris believe that supporting terrorists the likes of Daesh, al-Qae'da and the Muslim Brotherhood financially as well as through their propaganda machine al-Jajeera will some how protect Qatar from Islamists and their grand plans. And yes it is not an ideological support even if al-Jazeera spews in Arabic hideous pro-Muslim Brotherhood cheap propaganda I do believe that this misguided policy by the Qataris might protect Qatar, in the short term, from becoming a battle field of Islamists internal as well as external fighting and terrorism

The real problem with this policy is Islamists have a base in the Middle East where they can function to the detriment of the rest of the Middle Eastern countries

So on a positive note: It would not surprise me if Qataris stop financing the likes of the Brookings which has been the voice of opposing the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization here in the US and in turn US' MSM the likes of the Washington Post and the New York Times will stop their shameful support for the Muslim Brotherhood
