Congress to Qatar: Stop Funding Hamas


hamas Congressmen Peter Roskam (R-IL) and John Barrow (D-GA) are seeking to challenge Qatar over its financial ties to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. A draft letter addressed to Qatar’s ambassador to Washington, Mohammed Bin Abdullah al-Rumaihi, states: “We believe that Qatar’s relationship with Hamas empowers, legitimizes, and bolsters an organization committed to violence and hatred.”

Of particular concern is Qatar’s pledge of $400 million in financial aid to Hamas last year, and the fact that Hamas’ leader, Khaled Meshal, now hangs his hat in Doha. Meshal recently delivered a sermon at Qatar’s Grand Mosque in which he affirmed Hamas’ commitment “to liberate Jerusalem.”
