Dear Dr. Kennedy:
This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar. Raytheon, a major American military contractor and leading manufacturer of guided missiles, is set to be a substantial provider of sophisticated weapons systems to the terrorist-sponsor State of Qatar for many years; and has just reaffirmed their commitment to supply Qatar with surface-to-air missiles.
Qatar, however, is no mere sponsor of random terror. Not only was Doha home to 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Indeed, Qatar is the principal country that supported the so-called “Arab Spring” uprisings, which saw the demise of Mubarak, Gaddafi, and nearly – possibly still – Bashar al-Assad. The relevant point to consider regarding these revolutions is, cui bono?
It is a testament to Qatar’s dedication to Islamic supremacy, and concomitant mass-murder of the “infidel,” that in Egypt and Libya, the Qatari-hosted Muslim Brotherhood and their affiliated political parties came to dominate the countries’ governments. In Syria, the Qatari-backed rebels, including the al-Nusra Front and even ISIS – are poised to assume control should the Assad regime fall.
As a direct result of these Qatari-backed uprisings, the Middle East and North Africa are quite literally in political and social chaos – anarchy. Libya and Syria have become havens for transnational criminal syndicates, who traffic men, women, children, and narcotics for profit. There is an ongoing genocide against any population who dares oppose the diabolical rule of the Islamic State, on a scale unseen in the Middle East since the genocide of the Armenians during World War I.
In light of these events and the Qatari coordination behind the scenes, it is distressing that Raytheon:
- Just this month, announced that they would be proceeding with a $2 billion sale of sophisticated weaponry to Doha. Specifically, it is for $2 billion worth of Patriot Missiles Defense Systems.
- Hosted students from Qatar University to “to give them up-front, hands-on demonstrations of technologies that have made Raytheon a powerhouse of innovation.”
Why provide America’s mortal enemies with the capacity to defend themselves? Qatar can reasonably be blamed for turning the Middle East into a vast lawless region, where not even strongmen can check the indiscriminate killing, smuggling, and slaving. Qatar has created exactly the kind of environment that existed in Afghanistan prior to 9/11, across three continents!
Additionally, Qatar it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell, and profits from operating a virtual slave state. The only country with an “embassy” for the Taliban, Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent jihadi groups to its own benefit, and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.
The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.
After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!
