U.S. House Homeland Security Committee Chair: Qatar Should Be Held Accountable For Terror Financing
At a conference in Washington, D.C. earlier this week, the chair of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, Michael McCaul (R-TX) criticized Qatar for financing terrorism groups. Chairman McCaul was specifically critical of Qatar’s ties to Hamas, ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and Iran.
“Finally, we have to deal with the issue of terror financing. Qatar stands as a leader when it comes to funding Hamas, ISIS extremists in Syria, they fund Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Qatar also has a unique and disturbing relationship with Iran. I believe it is time to hold them accountable. If Qatar is to remain an ally, it must renounce its terror affiliations.”
