Jihadist Forum Members Condemn the Emir of Qatar for Donating Money for Hurricane Katrina Victims
By SITE Institute
September 7, 2005

Members of a password-protected al-Qaeda affiliated forum yesterday, September 6, 2005, discussed the one-hundred million dollar donation by the Emir (Prince) of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, to the victims of Hurricane Katrina in the United States. The discussion summarily condemned the Emir for allegedly giving Muslim money to a country which ?kill[s] us Muslim people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, and other Muslim countries,? and one member broadens the scope to all Arab rulers who give money for the relief effort, and are ?competing to show their loyalty to America.? In addition, another member argues that such monies should be given to a Muslim state like Nigeria, and vehemently states: ?May Allah crush your faces you hypocrite Muslims rulers.?

A translation of the message postings is provided to our Intel Service members.
