Qatar gives $3 billion to extremist-run Egypt while secretly funding Salafi madrassah’s and mosques all across Europe
April 10, 2013
This is extremely bad news for Israel – and for Europe. The powers to be must learn to connect the dots and stop being fools anymore. The West needs to bar Qatar and other Arab countries from doing business in the entire Western region all together; block investments, stop visas to Arabs, stop oil trade, stop and ban Qatar (and anyone else) from funding mosques all across Europe, U.S., Australia and Canada – and stop all permissions for mosque building.
Qatar Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani: spreading the Salafi movement and madrassah’s across Europe, while ‘investing’ to ease red tape and build contacts for quicker approvals and access.
SPREADING THE SALAFI MOVEMENT AT ALL COSTS
Qatar is one of the driving forces behind Salafi (khilāfa) movement through funding in the Middle East (Arab Spring) and underground movement across the Western world. While Christians are being subject to mass persecution across the Middle East, and churches are now to be banned completely, Qatar’s emir has promised to “spread Islam at all costs” outside of Islamic countries and are spending billions to build mosques and madrassah’s across Europe.
MOSQUE MANIA: OVER 6,000 MOSQUES NOW IN EUROPE
“In Spain there are signs that Islam will dominate once again.” — Hizrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Spiritual Leader, Ahmadiyya Community, Spain
In Belgium a mega-mosque in Liège. In Hamburg, Germany, the former Kapernaumkirche (Capernaum Church), a cultural heritage site, is converted into a mosque.
In Munich, local politicians are debating [this is not a joke] where to build a massive mosque complex known as the Center for Islam in Europe-Munich, funded for €40 million ($51 million), and is designed to be a key strategic platform for spreading Islam throughout Europe.
In Greece the government has pledged to spend €1.1 million ($1.4 million) to build an official mosque in Athens,funded by the Turkish government, another pro-Islamist leadership cloaked as moderate. An estimated 120 sites are illegally operating as mosques in Athens. These makeshift spaces serve an estimated 200,000 Muslims living in the city, many of whom are illegal immigrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Nigeria and Pakistan. Does it sound similar to Palestine, that was created by a similar, sudden and rapid influx of illegal Arabs?
Turkey’s ambassador to Greece, Kerim Uras, said he expects Islam to have a higher profile in Greece in the future. He said the move to open the mosque was “a positive step in the right direction. We’re expecting the rest to come.”
In Ireland, a sprawling mega-mosque complex called “Islamic Cultural Center” will be built for €40 million on a six-acre site in Clongriffin. Rumors have it that the mosque will be financed by Qatar, which recently donated €800,000 ($1 million) to build a mega-mosque in Cork.
In Luxembourg, a Muslim group called Le Juste Milieu (LJM) is fund-raising €1.8 million to purchase a makeshift mosque in downtown Luxembourg City. In August 2012, the German-language newspaper Tageblatt reported that the Qatar was paying €2.2 million to establish a mosque and madrassah in Luxembourg.
In Scotland, St. John’s Episcopal Church in Aberdeen has become the first church in the United Kingdom to share its premises with Muslim worshippers.
In Spain, Muslims inaugurated a new mosque on March 21 in the northern Basque town of Portugalete. The 50,000 Muslims in the Basque region, who hail mostly from Algeria, Morocco, Pakistan and sub-Saharan Africa, have become increasingly assertive in recent years.
Until recently, the Islamic Community of Bilbao in Basque had the following statement posted on its website: “We were expelled [from Spain] in 1609, really not that long ago. … The echo of Al-Andalus still resonates in all the valley of the Ebro [Spain]. We are back to stay, Insha’Allah [if Allah wills it].” (Al-Andalus was the Arabic name given to the parts of Spain ruled by Muslim conquerors from 711 until 1492.)
In Valencia, Spain, the third-largest city in Spain, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community inaugurated a new mosque on March 29. The mosque was inaugurated by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the spiritual leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Ahmad added: “In Spain there are a million Muslims and we believe that in twenty years this number will double. In Spain there are signs that Islam will dominate once again.” He also said the mission of the new mosque would be to “spread the teachings of Islam to every single citizen of Spain.”
In the Catalan municipality of Salt, a town near Barcelona, Muslim immigrants now make up 40% of the population, and work has begun on the construction of a two-story Salafi mega-mosque — built by two Spain-based Salafist groups, Al Hilal Islamic Cultural Association and Magrebins per la Pau Association, with funding from Saudi Arabia.
In Switzerland, a Muslim group called Club Paradise is converting a bowling alley into a mosque. The future imam of the new mosque, Fehim Dragusha, originally from Kosovo, made local headlines in late 2011 when he called on Muslim parents to beat their children if they refuse to pray.
And this is only the beginning. There are already 6,000 mosques in Europe – while churches are now being banned completely through the entire Islamic world, and Christians are murdered in the most brutal fashion.
Yet no one is connecting the dots.
BUSINESS EXPANSION THROUGH EUROPE
The emir recently bought six Islands in Greece, a known hub for illegal Muslim immigrants and extremists. These islets are very close to the private port of Platygiali (nearby Astakos at the coast of Ionian): a very strategical spot. Ioannis Kassianos, Ithaca’s Greek-American mayor claims the emir wants to buy all 18 islands in the region. He further wants to develop the airport. Is no one asking why?
TALIBAN’S NEW OFFICE IN QATAR
While negotiating for the Taliban to open their own “office” in his country and provide massive funding to the terrorist run Muslim Brotherhood, the emir has been very busy in acquiring more and more ownerships across Europe, with major investments and purchases in London and other cities. It is Qatari money that was instrumental in setting up al-Jazeera, though the station denies the emir runs the show. al-Jazeera has now been expanded to run as a propaganda machine in the U.S. to churn out highly whitewashed news about Muslim crimes and violence around the world and turn them into weepy victimization headlines.
THE QATAR EMIR DEPOSED HIS OWN FATHER IN COUP
The emir is no innocent in his own country. Although he appears to come across as a friendly fellow, he deposed his own father in a palace coup while the latter was in Switzerland. In spite of this, his embarrassingly naive foreign audience gives him honors. No fewer than 30 countries have given him honours. The UK made him an Honorary Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St Michael and St George, and France gave him the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour. Twice.
Meanwhile the Salafi movement, funded by the Qatar Emir in cooperation with Saudi Arabia, just keeps expanding at a rapid rate.
It’s unfathomable that countries like the UK continues and it’s Middle East envoy Tony Blair continues to entertain business contracts with this dangerous, extremist loving nation – aiding continued profits to grow for the Arabs while they aid and abet the spread of extremism around the world at an alarming rate.
By aiding Egypt with $3 billion in funding, and gas supplies on top of $5 billion that has already been given to Egypt by the Gulf States, the intentions are of course to support Muslim Brotherhood funding and growth for extremism and khilāfa progress in the region – and to fund wars against Israel to massacre Jews. Palestine has assured that after Israel is conquered and destroyed, the next destination for their ‘terrorism tour’ and conquest is Spain and Italy – and from there the rest of Europe.

3. How Qatar bought London
… but the very same emir of Qatar who is ‘investing’ in business is also involved in a very aggressive, secret, and rapidly spreading effort to build Salafi-Wahhabism cloaked as “cultural centers” across Europe:
4. Ireland to Build One of Europe’s Largest Mosques

Have you noticed that the persecution of Christians have increased quick and simultaneously across the Middle East? The Arabs now believe they have a stronghold in the West, with millions of Muslims living in these countries, giving them the power to push quicker developments for an Islamic state.

Qatar throws Egypt $3 billion lifeline amid IMF talks
By Regan Doherty and Maggie Fick | Reuters
DOHA/CAIRO (Reuters) – Gas-rich Qatar threw Egypt another unconditional financial lifeline on Wednesday as the Arab world’s most populous nation struggles to secure an IMF loan to ease its deepening economic crisis.
Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani said after talks with Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil that Qatar would provide an extra $3 billion (1.9 billion pounds) on top of some $5 billion the Gulf state has already given Cairo, and would extend gas supplies to Egypt this summer as needed.
He told a joint news conference that Qatar, the biggest financial backer of Egypt’s Islamist-led government, “did not ask for anything in return” for its aid.
Kandil clarified in a statement on his Facebook page that Qatar would buy $3 billion worth of Egyptian government bonds. He dismissed media reports that relations with Doha were strained over a series of tax and regulatory issues affecting Qatari banks seeking to acquire assets in Egypt.
The new financial injection could buy Egypt time as it seeks to avert social unrest over fuel shortages and food price increases during a long, hot summer in the run-up to parliamentary elections expected in October.
But Western diplomats said it was no alternative to an IMF deal, which could unlock up to $15 billion in multilateral and bilateral lending, and improve confidence for foreign and domestic investors.

Earlier, Planning Minister Ashraf al-Araby said Cairo may ask the International Monetary Fund to increase a previously requested $4.8 billion loan to cover its budget deficit.
An IMF delegation has been in Cairo since last week for long-delayed talks on a loan, which would carry conditions requiring reforms of costly fuel and food subsidies and tax increases.
Araby acknowledged there would be social costs to implementing reforms required by the IMF but if Egypt did not reach a deal with the global lender it would be forced to resort to even stricter austerity measures.
Qatar has already provided $5 billion in loans, grants and deposits since Egypt’s Islamist President Mohamed Mursi was elected last June. That has slowed the depletion of Egypt’s foreign reserves, which slipped to $13.4 billion in March – equivalent to less than three months of imports including vital wheat and fuel.
The government has already announced power cuts and energy saving measures such as closing Cairo airport’s two main runways for four hours every night during the summer.
Cairo must convince the IMF that it is serious about reforms including cuts in fuel and food subsidies and tax increases to curb an unaffordable budget deficit and boost growth.
The government reached an initial deal with the Fund last November and announced sales tax increases on 19 categories of goods as well as a tax on dividends and share gains.
The accord was frozen in early December when Mursi suspended the sales tax increases hours after they were officially published, bending to pressure in the face of protests ignited by political conflict over the extent of his powers.
Araby said that the government was now planning to raise sales tax on only six items – cement, iron, telecommunications, cigarettes, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Qatar was angered by Cairo’s decision to impose a 10 percent tax on investment gains from the takeover by Qatar National Bank of local lender National Societe Generale Bank, making QNB effectively overpay.
An Egyptian finance ministry aide said on Monday the government had decided to cancel the tax and would reimburse the revenue already levied to shareholders.
Egypt’s financial regulator is still holding up a proposed joint venture between QInvest, majority owned by Qatar Islamic Bank, and EFG Hermes, the Middle East’s biggest investment bank, which will expire if not approved by May 3.
The deal, which would place EFG’s main operations in a company 60 percent owned by QInvest, is politically sensitive in Egypt because both of EFG’s chief executives are on trial with the two sons of ousted President Hosni Mubarak over allegations of illegal share dealings in relation to a 2007 transaction.
Economists said flip-flops on taxation were causing uncertainty among investors. The sales tax increases published in the official gazette in December have yet to be cancelled, and it is not clear how the government plans to raise the missing revenue.
“(This) is indeed causing a mess in the market as companies remain legally liable for the new rates, but, practically, the government is not collecting them,” Moustafa Bassiouny, an economist at the Signet Institute, told Reuters.
Bassiouny said Araby’s latest comments on tax increases showed how government policy was “inconsistent”.
Araby said the government was targeting a budget deficit of 9.5 percent of gross domestic product in the fiscal year ending in June and aimed to further reduce the deficit, to 8.5 percent of GDP, by the end of the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
Last month, Araby had said the deficit could swell to 10 percent of GDP in the 12 months to the end of June.
Against most analysts’ expectations, Egypt’s urban consumer inflation eased to 7.6 percent in the 12 months to March, from 8.2 percent in the 12 months to February, statistics agency CAPMAS said on Wednesday.
Mohamed Abu Basha at EFG Hermes said the figure was well below the bank’s prediction of 9 percent year-on-year inflation, due to lower than expected food price increases.
Analysts said inflation was unlikely to continue to ease, however, given the depreciation of the Egyptian pound and planned subsidy cuts, and was likely to accelerate this year.
