Qatar Funds More Terrorism than Iran, Former Mossad Official Says

Qatar has played a dual role since the start of the war in Gaza. On one hand, it is a well-known supporter and funder of Hamas, while on the other hand, it is mediating the Israeli hostage release deal. So, what is Qatar’s true face?

“Qatar is at the top of funding terrorism worldwide, even more than Iran,” Dr. Udi Levi, former head of a Mossad unit dealing with economic warfare against terrorist organizations and countries that sponsor terrorism, told Israeli media on Thursday, April 18.

“While Iran does it openly and declares it, Qatar does so in a way I call in English ‘killing me softly,’ by softly killing us. On one hand, it sides with the West, and on the other hand, it funds terrorism.”

“Qatar, as of today, isn’t defined as a terrorist state; therefore, it has immunity,” according to Levi. However, he explains: “Qatar transferred funds through various channels, primarily via their largest foundation, Charai, which is one of the largest funding sources for terrorist organizations in the world.”

“So, while you can't sue a country directly, this foundation is fully controlled by the Qatari royal family and also uses Qatari banks owned by the royal family, like Qatar National Bank, which is also one of Qatar’s main channels for funding terrorism worldwide, and these are the bodies that are exposed to indictments.”

He continues that “there are lawsuits that have been going on for several years. By the way, not all are Israeli victims. Perhaps the most interesting one is by Syrian terror victims who accuse Qatari institutions of being the ones who funded Al-Qaeda and its proxy, the Islamic State in Syria.” (YNet / VFI News)
