Somebody told me this morning that Qatar intends to get rid of Hamas presence on its territory. Wow, says I to myself, Hamas is getting even on their best friend's nerves, it looks like. Then I got to the intertubes.
A senior Fatah official claimed in a conversation with the Al-Hayat newspaper that Qatar recently threatened Hamas' political bureau chief Khaled Mashal that it would expel him if Hamas accepts the Egyptian ceasefire truce deal in its current format.Now I see it. Now you can see the ugly truth too.
As they keep telling us, in the recent Israel vs Hamas dust-up the outside participants aligned in two distinct camps: Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan in one camp, against Hamas, and Qatar, Iran and Turkey (a NATO member, by the way) - on Hamas' side.
So they keep telling us, but they also keep forgetting one player with considerable, but somewhat waning influence in our parts - I mean the US of A.
Let me see, where should US be in that layout?
