The Washington Times reports:

Ahmed Al Hamli, president of TRENDS Research and Advisory, a think tank based in the UAE, suggested that the greater frustration has to do with Qatar’s unwillingness to join others in the Gulf in their condemnation of radicals. “Qatar has allowed the Taliban, Hamas, leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood to live and operate in Doha,” Mr. Al Hamli said in an interview.

“There are reports of sanctioned al Qaeda operatives under the U.N. regime living in Qatar with full government support,” he said. “Qatar has attempted to claim that it can act as some form of mediator between terrorists and others, but the total of its actions only points to support for designated terrorist individuals and groups.”
