CAIRO – 10 June 2017: American politicians and officials featured in a video that went viral on social media expressing their support to the boycott of Qatar assumed by several Arab states for its support to terrorism.
United States Senator Yeri Lindsay Graham stated that Qatar has supported Hamas and the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, and that it has good relations with Iran. He added that the gild-state claims that there was a “Russian hack” into the Qatari News Agency.
Graham said, “It’s best for us to get Qatar back in the fold and bring everybody back together because we have 10,000 troops there.”
Former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Robert James Woolsey Jr., said, “It’s very interesting to see these five Arab countries turning against Qatar for its financing of radical Islam.” He stressed that all Qatari claims of not supporting terrorist groups like Hamas, a violent arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, are not true.
John Robert Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, added that boycotting Qatar is the strongest step against a state that supports Iran in its nuclear program as well as terrorist groups.
