My Mideast Punchlines: why Qatar gets up my nose….

You really couldn’t make this up.

Is Qatar responsible for the collapse of the cease-fire in the South?

A senior Fatah official is quoted by the pan-Arab daily Al-Hayatas saying that the Qatari government threatened to expel the Hamas political bureau chief, Khaled Mashaal, if the Palestinian Islamist group agreed to the Egyptian cease-fire proposal.

Small FistIt’s not clear whether or not Mashaal acquiesced to Qatar’s demand because he was worried about leaving his luxurious 5-star hotel quarters in the richest country in the world and returning to the 0-star bunkers of the hell-hole that is Gaza, although I’m sure it was a no-brainer for him. Ah, what nice peace-loving fellows those Qataris are (if you believe Obama). They’ve bought up Harrods and large swathes of London and other major cities. They’ve bought the 2022 World Cup. Their mantra is: if it moves, bribe it. And all the while they sponsor Hamas terror to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. Now, don’t be silly of course it gives them the right to the top table at any ceasefire negotiations (if you believe Obama). The rest of us would just like to blow them to Kingdom Come (using their own vast fields of gas, of course). This is the same Qatar that has the population the size of my borough (250,000) and has ordered $11.5b worth of arms from the United States…..oh, I forgot, it doesn’t have an army. I have the feeling that it won’t only be catarrh we’ll be suffering from this winter.
