Qatar cut off by major Arab states for supporting terrorism following Trump’s Saudi visit
(INTELLIHUB) — One of the first practical steps to defeat radical Islamic terrorism in the region was put into place during President Donald J. Trump’s mid-March visit to the Saudi Kingdom where it was decided that prominent Arab states must work together, along with the U.S., to stop the bitter hatred.
Following the meeting, a number of Arab states have cut ties with the sovereign country of Qatar over the past few weeks creating a new rift in the region. Among the states are Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Libya, and Maldives.

As a result of the severance, Qatar’s stock market index sunk 7.5% percent Monday and is expected to sink even more while the country struggles to find balance.
It’s believed by top intelligence analysts that Qatar’s King Doha, a.k.a. “Father Emir,” supports radical Islamic terrorism and also supports Iran’s agenda which can lead to far worse problems if not addressed.
And if that’s not enough, the Clinton Foundation reportedly received between $1 and $5 million from the Qatar Royal Family during Hillary’s tenure with the State Department.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s connection to Qatar was exposed with the release of the Wikileaks “Podesta emails” in which Hillary Clinton, back on Aug. 2, 2014, sent John Podesta, an adviser to President Barack Obama at the time, an 8-point plan on how to defeat ISIS which consisted of the U.S. funding Kurdish forces to weaken ISIL and other radical Sunni groups.
In the leaked email, Hillary wrote:
With all of its tragic aspects, the advance of ISIL through Iraq gives the U.S. Government an opportunity to change the way it deals with the chaotic security situation in North Africa and the Middle East. The most important factor in this matter is to make use of intelligence resources and Special Operations troops in an aggressive manner, while avoiding the old school solution, which calls for more traditional military operations. In Iraq it is important that we engage ISIL using the resources of the Peshmerga fighters of the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG), and what, if any, reliable units exist in the Iraqi Army. The Peshmerga commanders are aggressive hard fighting troops, who have long standing relationships with CIA officers and Special Forces operators. However, they will need the continued commitment of U.S. personnel to work with them as advisors and strategic planners, the new generation of Peshmerga commanders being largely untested in traditional combat. That said, with this U.S. aid the Kurdish troops can inflict a real defeat on ISIL.
While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.
It’s no big secret that ISIS was purposely created by the Obama Administration and the C.I.A. to help isolate the Syrian government, all of this is admitted in declassified documents and other reports. Moreover, it’s also no secret that the Obama Administration knew about the planned terrorist attack on Benghazi 10-days prior, as Judicial Watch uncovered in May of 2015. These people were just sitting around letting things happen in order to gain the outcome they desired.
Even Donald Trump said that “they” created ISIS. In early-2016, Donald Trump, while campaigning in Biloxi, Mississippi, after the Saudi Arabian Embassy was burned down in Tehran, stated: “Iran wants to take over Saudi Arabia — they always have. They want the oil okay, they’ve always wanted that.”
Then in reference to the Obama Administration, Trump said: “They have a bunch of dishonest people. They’ve created ISIS. Hillary Clinton created ISIS with Obama.”
Withal being said, it’s safe to say that the recent severance of Qatar by prominent Arab states may be a massage to Hillary and Obama that there’s a new president in town and he doesn’t want to conduct business as usual.
