U.S., Deemed Key To Qatar Policy
TEL AVIV [MENL] -- Qatar has become a major player in the Arab world because
of its pro-Islamist policy and support by the United States, a report said.
The Institute for National Security Studies asserted that Qatar raised
its profile through an alliance with Iran, United States and Hamas. In a
report, the institute said the alliance allowed Qatar to challenge such Arab
powers as Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
