To our Gates of Vienna family, again:
My health prevents our full participation in The Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. Nonetheless, I am determined to share the work William Palumbo has done on the behalf of the West in shining a spotlight on the horror of Qatar.
QAC is his idea. This letter-writing campaign is his: his idea, his energy, his organizing skills, his many hours spent in herding cats in the Counterjihad and the higher-ups — getting them all to sign up for this week-long project. When I say he has phenomenal energy, I mean that what he has done takes grit; his work is profoundly encouraging and an example to us all of what one person can imagine and then bring to reality. This is no small miracle he has pulled off in creating the website, creating the publicity out of nothing, and managing even to move some of The Bigs to sign on to his initiative to show Qatar in its ugly reality.
He deserves your attention for pulling Qatar up into the light of day so we can all see what a horror it is.
America’s friend and ally, Qatar, owns Al Jazeera. Below is another epistle to two of the enablers who work there. Don’t you find it creeping strange that an organization like Al Jazeera is broadcast here almost without complaint yet news sources such as Fox are pilloried by the soi-disant intelligentsia? That’s an astounding double standard.
Ms. Malika Bilal and Ms. Femi Oke

Doha – Qatar
Dear Ms. Bilal and Ms. Femi Oke:
This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar, the country which owns Al Jazeera, the network on which you are co-hosts of the program, The Stream.
We urge to you read the information below, which includes evidence that Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today. It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state. Qatar is involved in terror operations from Nigeria to Gaza to Syria to Iraq.
So the public understands why this letter is addressed to you both, who are American (Ms. Bilal) and British (Ms. Oke) citizens and co-hosts of an Al Jazeera daily program, here is pertinent background on the Doha-based network:
- In 1996, then Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, provided a $137 million loan to start Al Jazeera. Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani was the ruling monarch of Qatar from 1995-2013.
- Al Jazeera is based out of Doha, the capital of Qatar.
- In July 2013, 22 employees of Al Jazeera resigned after the station “air[ed] lies and misle[d] viewers” (according to an Al Jazeera correspondent) regarding the Egyptian revolution on July 4, which ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi.
- Al Jazeera is home to the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader (and Morsi-backer) Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who reaches an estimated 80 million viewers each week.
In light of Al Jazeera’s consistent and vocal support for the Muslim Brotherhood and their associated terror campaigns, we ask that you consider the attached sourced report* on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.
After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking.
