[60:10] Allah only forbids you, respecting those who have fought against you on account of your religion, and have driven you out of your homes, and have helped others in driving you out, that you make friends of them, and whosoever makes friends of them — it is these that are the transgressors.
The accusations against Qatar go wider but they are a ruse. The real reasons lie in Palestine and Palestinians which for Israel is the biggest threat to their illegal and Satanic existence.
At the official level, the Qatari government pledged support for Hamas, the Palestinian group regarded as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States, Israel, Egypt and Canada.
Hamas is the Palestinians! Why would the US brand it a terrorist organization in the first place? Hamas didn’t terrorize and bomb Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen! They are nobody’s paid mercenaries.
But look at Israel’s choice leader who did not win any election: Israel Cuts Gaza Electricity at Abbas’ Request
“Abbas is trying to get Trump’s approval by punishing Hamas. Since Abbas received an invitation from the White House to visit … Abbas threatened to take punitive measures against Gaza to prove that he is the legitimate and sovereign leader of the Palestinian territories.”

Jan Egeland, secretary-general of the Norwegian Refugee Council said on Tuesday that Qatar “has been very important as an investor in Gaza” and as a “contributor to infrastructure projects there.”
He added this might now “not easily continue.”
Qatar is among the biggest contributors of aid to Palestinian territory.
Qatari support comes in the form of humanitarian projects to improve the lives of the two million people of Gaza, which has been under an Israeli-Egyptian blockade.
It has built a housing complex for thousands of families, paved major roads across Gaza, built a hospital and funded the reconstruction of hundreds of houses that were destroyed or damaged during a 50-day war with Israel in 2014.
Now with a crisis looming between Qatar and its Arab neighbours, residents in Gaza expect worse to come.
“If this happens though, and Qatar does withdraw its support, it will severely effect the people of Gaza, especially because Qatar is a huge financier of reconstruction projects after the war and charity work,” Ahmed Rezeq, 25, an entrepreneur told Al Jazeera.
He said that eventually, the people in Gaza will “pay the price” because of the conflict.
Sara Thabit Dogmash, 23, a researcher at the Palestinian Center for Democracy and Conflict Resolution, meanwhile told Al Jazeera that she is confident Qatar will continue to support the residents of Gaza.
“It’s the richest nation in the world, it’s economically and politically strong, there is no domestic opposition. Qatar supports countries and people all over the Arab world.”
