Although the State Department for years has labeled both Iran and Syria State Sponsors of Terrorism, Qatar has gotten off scot free.

 It has had a free ride. After all, Qatar is home to the largest American Army Base in the Middle East. Lately, the tide might well have turned. Even the New York Times in an expose on Qatar on September 8th questions whether Qatar deserves its vaulted status. When it comes to Terrorism always follow the money trail and one is always truly amazed by the results.Terrorism would not flourish unless someone or some country was funding the Terrorists.

I will discuss ISIS soon as a case in point. First  , there is no question that Hamas which is labeled a Terrorist Organization by America and the Muslim Brotherhood are supported by Qatar. If Qatar stopped funding Hamas, Hamas would cease being a problem for Israel and the world. The President should be able to tell Qatar stop funding Terrorists or else.

That has not happened to date. Unfortunately, one of Secretary of State John Kerry's key Advisers on Israeli Palestinian Negotiations, Martin Indyck received 14.8 million dollars from Qatar. It is hard for the Secretary of State to tell Qatar to do anything differently as a result. Even former Vice President Al Gore is mixed up in this web of deceit fostered by Qatar.Howard Kurtz of CNN reported last year stating, "So Al Gore starts a liberal cable network which turns into a complete and utter flop, then sells it to a Middle East potentate in a deal that will bring him an estimated $70 million".

The potentatate is none other than the Emir of Qatar Sheik Hamod bin Klalifa al Thani. Al-Jazeera is based in Qatar and has been the leader of distortions, lies and deception in the media today. This was particularly evident during Operation Protective Edge. Qatar has allowed members of the Taliban to open an office and live in Doha as part of deals approved by Washington. Qatar has consented to "open fundraising" by Sheik Hajaj al-Ajmi identified by the United States as a fundraiser for Al Qaeda's Syrian Affiliate.

Sheik Ajmi has said, "Give your money to the ones who will spend it on Jihad, not aid". Al Jazeera sportscaster Mohamed Sadoun El-Kawary says openly on Al Jazeera "Sheik Ajmi knows best". Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor in an Op-Ed to the New York Times called Doha "Club Med for Terrorists". Now the coup de grace. According to many Qatar is the chief financier of ISIS.

Qatar can no longer hide behind its oil wealth. The Secret is out. Qatar should be designated a "State Sponsor of Terrorism". The evidence is overwhelming.The President should not only destroy ISIS from the air and ultimately on the ground, but in the pocket book. The money flow to ISIS and all the other Qatar Terrorist Proxies must stop immediately. The world will become a lot safer once this happens.
