    UAE Behind Qatar Media Hacking: US Intelligence

    Our Bureau09:45 AM, July 17, 2017

    The United Arab Emirates reportedly was behind the hacking of Qatari websites in late May which led to boycotting of the nation by Saudi-led group of countries.
    The UAE hacked the websites or paid for getting them hacked (which is still unclear) in order to post false quotes linked to Qatar's emir, prompting the Qatar-Gulf diplomatic crisis, the Washington Post reported on Sunday, citing US intelligence officials.
    UAE Ambassador to the US Yousef al-Otaiba denied the report in a statement, saying it was "false," Al Jazeera Quoted the Post report.
    "What is true is Qatar’s behaviour. Funding, supporting, and enabling extremists from the Taliban to Hamas and Qadafi. Inciting violence, encouraging radicalisation, and undermining the stability of its neighbours," the statement said.
    The Qatari emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, had been falsely quoted in May as praising Hamas and saying that Iran was an "Islamic power," the Post reported. In response, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting "terrorism". Qatar strongly denies the allegations.
    Qatar said in late May that hackers had posted fake remarks by the emir, an explanation rejected by Gulf states.

    The truth is, if an Arab state decides to have good relations with Iran, Americans will start choking them to death.
    Whether by hacking or accusing them of anything possible.
    However Qatar is not an angel in politics, they have supported Al-Nusra extremists which is enough to make a vast majority of Muslims angry but whole the support for those groups or even Saudi support for ISIS in the first days of Syrian crisis was orchestrated by Americans. The main problem that Trump is charged to destroy, is Qtar's support for Hamas. Americans do not like that in any case.
    If you are looking for the roots of problems in Middle East, rift in Persian gulf, Syrian&Iraqi crisis, Libyan crisis, mass murder in Afghanistan, terrorism in Pakistan and story of Taliban, coup in Egypt and Turkey, ect, you should be looking at Washington.D.C.
    They are leading whole the mess for many reasons. Firstly to keep Israel safe from Muslim union, secondly having forever dominance over resourceful middle eastern countries, thirdly controlling energy flow to China, and finally surrounding Russia and NK.
    The day USA vanishes, everything in middle east and whole world will be fine.
