President Barry Obama deployed $11 billion of U.S.-made weapons to the Islamist terorist organization, Hamas in the Palestine, so they can wage war against Israel. US Secretary of State John Kerry utilized favorable diplomatic relations with Qatar to ensure the transaction would be completed.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Qatar recently cemented an enormous weapons deal with the United States. But this week, the tiny, resource-rich Gulf kingdom with outsized geopolitical ambitions — and a seemingly bottomless pocketbook — might be setting itself up for more problematic relations with the U.S. Last week, Qatar closed the largest sale of American weaponry so far this year, purchasing worth of Patriot missile batteries and Apache attack helicopters. The sale revealed that Qatar hasn't exactly been lacking in strategic daring in the wake of its on Muslim Brotherhood-linked political movements throughout the Middle East, and its subsequent with neighboring Gulf monarchies."
Perhaps this would explain why Obama appears reluctant to defend Israel amidst recent blodshed in Gaza.
"But," according to the Houston Chronicle, "the Gaza-Hamas conflagration casts a problematic light on the Qataris, who have been one of Hamas's most reliable international partners. Then-Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani made the to Hamas-controlled Gaza of any head of state in October of 2012. During the visit, he pledged over $400 million in assistance to the territory, and some significant but currently-unknown amount of that money has ended up in Hamas's pocket."
Yet again, Obama throws Israel under the bus and supports Islamist jihadists.
