We are a coalition of concerned independent journalists and publishers, for the purpose of signing onto letters addressed to companies and individuals who are accepting money from Qatar. The reason? Qatar is responsible for:
The Israel/Hamas war (they host, fund, and profit from Hamas – the tunnels are used for smuggling)
Boko Haram (they fund and profit from Boko Haram – slave trade and narcotics)
The Islamic State (they fund and profit from ISIS – narcotics and slaves).
The Taliban (they fund and profit from the Taliban – heroin).
9/11 (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was on a Qatari Ministry’s payroll, and amazingly found him as soon as the pressure grew too hot for them to handle)
As a result, Qatar is directly responsible for the ongoing genocide against Christians, Yazidis, and Shiite Muslims.
Not to mention, Qatar is effectively a slave state that works captive migrant workers (who are denied exit visas) until they die, while paying them less than $1 per hour, if they get paid at all.
Qatar must immediately cease any and all involvement in these activities. Sign this.
“ISIS’s ’emir of suicide bombers’ raised $2million for ‘military operations’ from mystery Qatari donor, say US officials,” By Sophie Jane Evans for MailOnline, September 2014
Tariq bin al-Tahar al-Harzi, 32, is ‘one of ISIS’s most senior commanders’
He raised $2million from mystery Qatari donor, according to U.S. Treasury
Unnamed donor told him cash must be used for ‘military operations’ only

Al-Harzi among number of jihadis named as ‘global terrorists’ by Treasury
The Islamic State’s ’emir of suicide bombers’ raised a staggering $2million for ‘military operations’ from a mystery Qatari donor, U.S. officials have said.
Tunisian-born Tariq bin al-Tahar al-Harzi, 32, one of the terror group’s most senior commanders, allegedly arranged to receive the funds from a Gulf-based ‘financial facilitator’.
The unnamed donor told him the cash must be used for ‘military operations’ and also enlisted the terrorist’s help with ‘fundraising efforts in Qatar’, according to the U.S. Treasury.
The revelations have sparked calls for the Gulf state, the richest per capita in the world, to prevent its citizens from aiding the flow of funds to Syria-based terror groups, such as ISIS.

Terrorist: Tunisian-born Tariq bin al-Tahar al-Harzi (pictured), 32, the Islamic State’s ’emir of suicide bombers’, has raised a staggering $2million for ‘military operations’ from a mystery Qatari donor, say U.S. officials
Calls for action: The revelations have sparked calls for the Gulf state, the richest per capita in the world, to prevent its citizens from aiding the flow of funds to terror groups like ISIS. Above, Qatar’s capital, Doha
But despite increasing criticism, Qatar, which has an extensive London property portfolio including luxury department store Harrods, is now ‘working together’ with the U.S. against ISIS.
The Gulf has contributed two Mirage jet fighters to President Barack Obama’s air campaign against militants, which are being controlled from a headquarters outside Qatar’s capital, Doha.
Al-Harzi, who is believed to be one of ISIS’s first ever terrorists, is among a number of jihadists to be recently added to the Treasury’s list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists.
Other named jihadists include a middleman between al-Qaeda’s leadership in Pakistan and Gulf financiers and another ISIS senior commander who is believed to oversee a prison where foreign hostages are held.

In addition to ‘raising funds’, Al-Harzi allegedly serves as ISIS’s ’emir’ of the border region between Turkey and Syria and works to ‘recruit and facilitate the travel of fighters’ for the terror group.
In this capacity, he has reportedly received ‘new foreign fighter recruits and provided them light weapons training before sending them to Syria’.
He has also ‘facilitated the movement of Europeans to Turkey’ (including fighters from the UK, Albania and Denmark), organised suicide attacks in Iraq and helped ISIS to develop its fighters’ abilities to build car bombs and improvised explosive devices, the Treasury said.
British MP Stephen Barclay said the allegations against al-Harzi’s – in particular, the $2million he has reportedly raised – underlined the need for Qatar to ‘clamp down’ on the flow of money to ISIS.

‘These further revelations underline the need for Qatar to demonstrate clearly its commitment to clamping down on the clear flow of money that has helped to facilitate the grip of Isil,’ the Conservative MP told The Telegraph, using another name for the group.

Daniel Byman, of the Brookings Institute, added that the country had ‘not put significant barriers in the way’ of such monetary transfers.
‘A lot of people believe the government has, in fact, allowed it to happen,’ he said.
Among the other jihadists named as ‘global terrorists’ by the Treasury was Tarkhan Batirashvili, who has reportedly held a number of top military positions within ISIS.
Known as ‘Omar the Chechen’, Batirashvili allegedly oversees an ISIS prison facility in al-Tabqa, close to al-Raqqah, where foreign hostages may be held.
In late 2013, he led around 1,000 foreign fighters to attack the Syrian regime at Jabal Shuwayhnah in Rif Aleppo, Syria, said the Treasury.
Abd al-Aziz al-Fadhill, a Kuwait-based facilitator who allegedly provides support to al-Nusra Front, was also named in the Treasury’s list, released on Wednesday.
He has reportedly co-ordinated the transfer of ‘hundreds of thousands of dollars’ to the terrorist group, as well as facilitating travel for individuals seeking to join it.US airstrikes destroy ISIS targets in Syria

Meanwhile, Ibrahim al-Bakr, 37, has been listed as a key link between al-Qaeda’s leadership in Pakistan and financiers in the Gulf.
He is ‘responsible for collecting money for both al-Qaida and the Taliban’, as well as playing a ‘key role in a terrorist cell that was plotting to attack U.S. military bases and personnel in Qatar’.
Other jihadists named by the Treasury include Ashraf al-Salam, Umar al-Qatari, Fatih Hasar, Hamad al-Shammari, and Bambang Sukirno, as well as the terrorist group Hilal Indonesia.
It comes as the British Parliament has voted to approve the UK’s participation in U.S.-led airstrikes against ISIS.

Six RAF Tornados were expected to join US, French and Arab air strikes – their first in Iraq for six years – today after MPs voted overwhelmingly to go into a third Gulf War.
Warning that the fight to crush IS could last for years, not months, David Cameron told an emergency session of Parliament that as well as murdering Western hostages with ‘staggering brutality’ the group was plotting terrorist attacks in Britain.
‘This is about psychopathic terrorists trying to kill us,’ the Prime Minister said. ‘We do have to realise that whether we like it or not, they have already declared war on us.’
MPs authorised military action by 524 votes to 43, one of the biggest Commons majorities since the last general election.
