Tiny Qatar uses its wealth to become a regional power.

Tiny Qatar uses its wealth to become a regional power.



Qatar, a small Gulf country that is hosting an Arab summit on Tuesday, has become a key regional player thanks to its support for the Arab uprisings and the marginalization of traditional heavyweights.

But the “diplomacy of the checkbook” of this energy-rich state, a loyal American ally, and its support for the Islamists, who managed to seize power in some countries that survived the Arab spring, is criticized.

Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani "is obsessed with leaving his heirs a country that will be visible on the world map, although 20 years ago was virtually unknown,” says Olivier Da Layge, author of the recently published French book "Qatar: the new masters of the game ". "The disproportionate importance of Qatar to its size and population is due to its considerable financial resources ... and the noticeable absence of historically established actors in the Arab world," he said, referring to Egypt and, to a lesser extent, Saudi Arabia.

The population of Qatar does not exceed two million people, mainly foreign expatriates, who were tempted to work in a deserted state, which sits on the third largest natural gas reserves in the world, and is 13 in the world in terms of proven oil reserves.

Paul Salem, director of the Carnegie Middle East Center, claimed in a study published in December that historical Qatar is not a unique case of a small state that has become a regional power, mentioning Venice among other examples. “But that raises the question of the influence of the media and the power of money,” he said, referring to the Qatari channel News Al Jazeera, which played a major role in covering the Arab Spring rebellions.

In Tunisia, the ruling Islamist party Ennahda is accused of being sponsored by Doha in order to establish an Islamic state.

"Doha sees in the conclusion of an alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood, by means of a checkbook diplomacy, to lay a regional basis with economic and political influence in the Middle East and beyond," wrote the Egyptian French-speaking weekly Al-Ahram Hebdo in 20 March front page. "The massive financial support provided by Qatar to Egypt, including $ 5 billion, and the promise to invest another $ 18 billion over five years, raise concerns that this may give the small emirate significant advantages in defining and formulating Egypt's domestic and foreign policy," writes the weekly .

Qatar is reaping the fruits of its relationship with the Islamists, whom it has always supported, giving shelter to their leaders when they were threatened with persecution and arrest in their home countries.

Qatar is now the strongest ally of the new governments in Tunisia and Egypt.

In Libya, Doha was at the forefront of the struggle against the regime of the late dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi, sending weapon and militants to support the rebels, while Qatari military aircraft led by NATO bombed Gadhafi’s army. Inspired by the fall of Gaddafi, who was killed by the rebels, Qatar demanded to arm and finance an uprising against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Thanks to his influential Al-Jazeera news channel, Qatar realized that "he could be a key player in the new region instead of advocating the agonizing old order," said Paul Salem, director of the Middle East Carnegie Center.

However, Qatar’s diplomatic role remains mainly aimed at “serving the political and economic interests of Qatar itself,” said Amel Boubecker, a researcher at the Brookings Institution in Doha.

      To the Point!
      Qatar is a state with an area of ​​11 km² = 571 the size of Moscow (the smallest region of Russia, Ivanovo is about 10 km²).
      How can it sit on the world's third largest natural gas reserves, and is also the 13th largest in the world in terms of proven oil reserves?

      Qatar is a "mattress" -Anglo-Saxon "projecting an outpost and projecting its interests on all the adjacent countries of the region. (Middle and Middle East, East Africa, India and up to Kazakhstan and naturally the Caucasus)
      They run out of Gas, Oil and the history of this "franchise" will sink into oblivion.

            The protection of the first person of the state is subject to quotas, is that oil, metal, wood or grain? The number of "security" in each delegation agrees with the services and upon changes (which is reasonably acceptable), the parties notify the opponents of their steps. And they don’t go on video cameras for reporters and information agencies.

            like Bush guards to a meeting almost let I hope that even with an unaided look the difference is visible “They almost let me go” and not allowed half.

        Nobody smiles sweetly. Russia cannot in the circumstances in the Middle East endanger its ally because of cheap provocation. Doha is dying under the weight of loans, she needs to destroy Syria as soon as possible. After that, the attack on Iran will become more real and only after that Qatar will be able to sell its gas to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
        Russia does not allow this to be done. Hence the foam on the teeth. A little pungent little lady of the English masters who, after completing the mission, will be safely crushed due to "violation of democratic norms." But it is later.

      No one is surprised at the growth dynamics of Qatar's influence. Moreover, this is not surprising. Qatar is a TNC with an address in London. What assets does he have? These are multimedia multinational corporation Al-Jazirra and an oil and gas company. There is nothing more and never will be. And of course, this is capitalism. All of Qatar’s efforts are not “to leave a mark”, but are aimed at the elementary survival of capital. Billions swelled into gas carriers and LNG plants, and demand fell significantly. What do they have to do? So they started a mess with competitors. How long will this work? Yes, until the first major terrorist attack in Qatar itself.

      So there is no need to exaggerate the significance of Qatar, it is just a London multinational corporation which is not burdened by UK law.

    Both Qatar and the Saudis aim to destabilize the Mediterranean region, both in their own and in the American interests - to maintain an exclusive role in the supply of hydrocarbons to the world market. To this end, they spoil everyone - Syria, Egypt, Libya, Israel, Iran, arming, poisoning, provoking ...
    Nobody likes it, for example, Israel, despite its "omnipotence", has long been concerned ...: "The ZMAN.com portal published material prepared by Sergei Marfin, under the heading" Saudi newspaper: Egypt is time to annex Gaza "Author of one of the sections in daily Saudi a newspaper close to the authorities called on Egypt to annex the Gaza Strip, which belonged to it in 1948-1967, before the capture of the sector by Israel. According to him, this step will protect the people of Gaza from the constant aggression of Israel and at the same time ease the tensions between Egypt and Israel, the reason for which is the conflict between Israel and Hamas. According to Ibrahim al-Majri, Anwar Sadat and his inner circle committed this betrayal, refusing to sign the Gaza Strip at their own discretion when signing a peace treaty with Israel, without consulting the parliament, their own people and Palestinians. The accession of the sector to Egypt will not violate the spirit of the peace treaty, the principles of the Arab initiative and the interests of the inhabitants of the sector themselves. On the contrary, they will only win, because Cairo will take care of their safety. The latter will also benefit by reducing tension in its relations with Israel over Gaza. This tension is detrimental to Egypt’s national security, its economy and embarrassing in the diplomatic sense, as the international community insists on controlling the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip. Finally, a Saudi journalist recalls a geographical factor - 57 kilometers of Israeli territory that divide Gaza and the West Bank. The Israeli authorities will never give up this land, because they will not go to the voluntary dissection of their own state. Thus, the physical union of the two parts of the Palestinian state is a pipe dream that only harms efforts to liberate Palestine. Instead, Al-Majri writes, it would be better to complete the liberation of the Gaza Strip after the recent victory over Israel and include its territory in Egypt, giving access to the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip “to the land of freedom and justice, revolution and mutual respect.” After that, it will be possible to concentrate on supporting the residents and freeing the West Bank, which is now receiving little attention; and it is Israel that is interested in diverting the world's attention to Gaza, in order to quietly carry out the creeping settlement of Jerusalem and its environs, to expand settlements and alienate Palestinian lands.

      During the Arab League Summit in Doha on March 26, the Emir of Qatar proposed establish a fund to help the Arab population of Jerusalem, and expressed willingness to take on a significant part of the funding.
      The Qatari monarch noted that foundation must guarantee the status of Jerusalem as a Palestinian capital. Reuters notes that Palestinian leaders are constantly sounding the alarm about the so-called "attempts to Jewishize Jerusalem" and claim that the Israeli government wants to erase remnants of Arab and Muslim heritage from the city’s history.
      Also during the summit, the LAS secretary general, Nabil al-Arabi, called on all Arab countries to fulfill their obligations to provide assistance to the Palestinian Authority and transfer the promised funds.
      Nabil al-Arabi noted that
      "Without ending the occupation and creating a Palestinian state within the borders of 1967, the Middle East will never be stable and secure."
      Al-Arabi accused Israel of torpedoing the peace process.

      In October last year, the emir became the first head of state to visit Gaza from the beginning of the Israeli blockade. He promised $ 400 million to implement projects to rebuild a densely populated sector, a significant part of the infrastructure and residential buildings of which were destroyed during the latest Israeli aggression.

        Well, this is a common practice - to promise the golden mountains and not really give a damn - entirely in line with the Arab mentality. However, Arab godfathers can be understood - no matter how much you give - the local leaders are plundered without a trace, as Yaser Arafat and his "neighbors" once did. So the matter of helping the people of Palestine is an unprofitable action in its pure form, not a desire for oil sheikhs to again feel like fraudulent eared.

Although many have already "dripped" "Together with a large high delegation the emir of Qatar brought with him $ 250 million for the reconstruction of Gaza, involving the construction of a new hospital and library, as well as a residential town named after the emir - “Hamad”. According to Hamadi Al-Aouni, an economist at Berlin Free University, these funds are not enough to restore Gaza. The emir’s generous gesture is aimed, first of all, at further weakening the Syrian regime and isolating Iran, and, secondly, for the benefit of the Palestinians. However, during her visit, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa At-Thani announced a decision to increase the amount of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip to $ 400 million, which nevertheless does not detract from rationality in the words of Al-Aouni.

      Egypt time to annex Gaza "

      From the point of view of Israel, the accession of Gaza to Egypt would be almost an ideal option, at once solving a number of issues.
      1. Accepting the sector under its jurisdiction, Egypt would have to ensure the law and the cessation of terrorist activities in Gaza, ending the shelling of Israeli territory forever.
      2. The fact of Gaza’s joining Egypt completely deprives the idea of ​​creating a Palestinian state and puts a fat cross on the "aspirations of the oppressed Palestinian people."
      3. The population of the sector ceases to sit on the neck of the Israeli taxpayer and smoothly transplanted to the scruff of a Cairo rais.
      It’s only a pity that all this is a pipe dream. Egypt is on the verge of collapse and is unable to take a craped piece of land packed to the last limit with scumbags and idlers, who have been living for decades on the handouts of oil sheikhs and Western benefactors. So, forget about it!

An illegitimate pro-Western puppet is led by Muaz al-Khatib, who recently announced his resignation as chairman of the “National Coalition” (“NCC”). “We demand ... Syria’s place at the UN and other international organizations,” said Syrian Democrat leader al-Khatib. At the opening of the gathering, the puppet emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa at-Thani, spoke. He called for an end to bloodshed and a regime change in Syria. According to him, the UN Security Council is obliged to “take measures” and stop the violence. In turn, Democrat al-Khatib asked the United States to protect the rebels from Assad's air strikes with the help of Patriot missiles, which are already deployed in neighboring Turkey.

    Little warlike Qatar. The swollen sheikhs, our ambassador were beaten up with impunity, Syrian fighters are supported, and our Gazprom enters into an agreement with them. What is the trick? For me it’s necessary to teach them a good lesson. A couple of blows to inflict on oil fields and everything will be ok, I think. Maybe there are training bases for militants there, you can hit them. Yandarbiev, the terrorist of this, was banged and nothing, got away with it, even the faces who did it insolently - were released.

    Russian politicians want to make world politics in a white glove, but the world doesn’t give a damn. To do politics, and not to lag behind, one must be decisive and arrogant at the same time, or strong or rich, and so put in Qatar that power that would suit Russia once to spit.

Unfortunately, our authorities are not ready for radical steps and other steps so that the limitroph can be pulled out at the level of a world power.

    Grandmas, I see! In Britain. Man.City, Malaga, PSG are Qatari clubs.
    Question: why, for example, does the Russian Federation need a “state-disease-diagnosis”. Why does it still exist?
    Do not compare with VGN. VGN in potential is one of the strongest and genetically almost all Russian. There it is necessary to come up with creativity, and not with a stupid run over (on the other hand, they’ve settled worse than worse), but!
    Could the combed Qatar of the brain be eliminated? Or consider it equal to yourself? Cool strategy!

    The revolution in Egypt, the defeat of Iraq and Libya significantly weakened the claims of these states for the status of regional leader, which allowed small states (including Qatar) to seize the initiative with the tacit approval of the West, and, above all, the United States.
    When the Prime Minister and at the same time the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country, Sheikh Hamad bin Jaber Al-Thani appeared on the Bila Hodoud TV show (“Without Borders”), Al-Jazir host Ahmad Mansour presented his activities as follows: “Many observers note that international Qatar’s politics lacks openness. The country has the largest (outside the United States) American military base, while the country maintains friendly relations with an adversary of the United States in the Iran region. Maintaining diplomatic relations with Israel, the country simultaneously hosted the leaders of the Islamic resistance movement Hamas .... Qatar has already settled relations with its elder sister Saudi Arabia for two years and quarreled with the Egyptian regime - the largest Arab country .... Indeed, “B *** is not a profession. It is a state of mind”
    PS At a press conference, a question for Putin:
    - Vladimir Vladimirovich, what can you say about the arrest in
    Qatar of three employees of the Russian special services?
    - The bandits must be soaked ... in Qatar, no ... in the toilet ... Well, they were mistaken

    On the issue of beating the ambassador in Qatar. If the leader of the country, Nikita Emir, would get stupid shoes at the very first UN Assembly, but Putin is a Chekist and acts quietly and not explicitly. A recent example: the dispersal of the “worshipers” in St. Petersburg, the pogrom in a teahouse in Irkutsk (with beating and shaving beards) As the HMS used to say, the process has begun. And I will add that all these and future “law enforcement actions” concern part of the visiting population as guides and distributors of the ideology of Er Riyadh and Doha.

    Qatar and the Saudis. Spreading the ideology of Wahhabism around the world. Arming and financing them both militarily and ideologically. First of all, they strike a blow at Russia's security.
    Excerpts from Matat Muslin’s article “Wahhabis - Salafi” - BLOODED PUPPETS OF THE USA AND ISRAEL (On the sharp turn of the Salafi-Wahhabi Comintern into Russia ”- http://anna-news.info/node/8172)" "Mr. Musin, Your article needs some clarification. First, it’s not the “Comintern" - the Wahhabis do not smell like communism. They supposedly want a global caliphate - but they are destroying just the Arab countries! The fact that the Wahhabis are now, as you write, is aimed at Russia, but not on the real enemies of Islam - the anti-Arab regime of Israel and US imperialism - proves that they shed the blood of their innocent victims on the orders of Mossad and the CIA. Therefore, calling them "Islamists" is a gross mistake. Secondly, Libyan Wahhabis (led by a CIA agent nicknamed "Kumu") did not "get out of US control," killing Ambassador Stevens. They obeyed the order of Mossad and the CIA: to dishonor Obama with their terrorist act in order to facilitate the election of US rival Romney, a Mormon fanatic, a stock-market predator and speculator, and a personal friend of Israeli fascist Netanyahu.

    Yes, Qatar is haunted by the fact that its European naboes hold for the country of the 3rd world and, accordingly, the Qatar sheikhs for people of the 3rd grade. But ambition is naughty, how is it, there is such a lot of money - but there is no "honor and worship", and then there is the USA with the idea of ​​the "Great Caliphate" as music for the ears. So amuse their pride, their rotten ambitions. So they give money for blood, murders and tears of their fellow believers. Only one thing they don’t want to accept and recognize - Never, I repeat, never will the European financial elite accept you (sheikhs) as equals. Accepting as equals means sharing power. And nobody will do this. And the money, and that the money — is with the Western financial tycoons and their clans, money is immeasurable without Qatar, and indeed all these sheikhs. And the interest of the United States in the Middle East is understandable. Only now the sheikhs do not see this obvious fact - or do not want to see?

    By the way, yes! Collect over the zones of our (and import) bearded men. Tell them the TRUTH! They will capture the richest Qatar and become HIS OWNERS! And do not lie.
    They will BECOME its masters! Next, how do they succeed. But, to declare everyone in INTERPL, etc. "search for terrorists with a reward," as the Anglo-Saxons do.
    Mine their gas and oil platforms. Drop weapons in the sands of Saudi Arabia (having bribed a couple of kilograms of “Au” or simple (unenriched) Uranus of their aksakals. You can drop a bunch of “Hammers, Merses and Toyota” seized from the majors and replaced by “Tigers” and “Lynxes” - let them go ! With weapons and contingent.
    1-2 days and Qatar will become a "Wahhabi and Sharia" country with the signature of several towers to those who allowed them to do this.
    Then throw them weapons ....

    Or do our "foreign politicians" have such "chess players"? Yes, they are beaten in “Chapaeva” as idiots, and in the “fool” they play according to the rules, where “Ivan” is always! (love this game).
    Or is "conscience tormenting"?
    No! Russia at all times in FOREIGN POLICY was an idiot "behind the game" except for two periods? Catherine the Great and Stalin, when marshals (without consulting with diplomats) could dictate conditions themselves with military victories.
