Tue, Sep. 19, 2017
NEW YORK – 19 September 2017: A number of Arab activists, including Egyptians and Yemenis, organized a protest against the terrorist acts of Qatari Emir Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani in the vicinity of the United Nations headquarters in New York City.

Protesters demanded a regime change in Qatar, the shutting down of Al Jazeera TV network, and the handing over of Islamist radicals hosted by the Tamim regime.

“The Tamim regime use terrorists to destabilize our countries. He has to go. Arabs should be united, not divided, not in war with each other,” protesters chanted.

“We are here to demand Qatar to stop funding terrorism and supporting violence. We demand the UN Security Council to seize Qatar's financial assets and the accountability of those involved in accordance with international law,” said Yemeni activist Mohamed Ali Elawa.



“We call upon the leaders and rulers of the world and all members of the UN Security Council to take immediate and real action through the establishment of an international commission of inquiry to put an end to the Qatari funding of terrorism and violence in various countries of the world and to deem it a rogue terrorist state and enemy of all humanity,” said Yemeni activist Yehia Al-Kasby.
