The reputation of Qatar
Qatar has been carrying out campaigns to improve its reputation in many European and Western countries to deny the accusations of supporting and financing terrorism. These campaigns started after Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt sever diplomatic relations with Qatar.
Improving Qatar's reputation means by the Qatari concept targeting the reputation of Saudi Arabia in particular, and the other three countries. Qatar has been leading a mass media campaign in conjunction with the Turkish media, aimed at distorting Saudi Arabia by exploiting the death incident of Jamal Khashoggi, in an apparent attempt to avenge the step of isolation and the boycott.
Qatari media move to invest Khashoggi's incident through coordinated operations with a large number of media, whether residing on the territory of its ally Turkey and journalists beneficiaries of Qatar’s donation funds within the United States.
Qatar operates through Saudi person who lives in Canada, posted videos and tweets in March 2015 via his Twitter account supporting Daesh in Syria. Mock accounts in Twitter claim to be contrary to the orientations of the boycott countries. To exploit the year since the death of Khashoggi by distributing roles of these accounts' elements to coordinate with human rights organizations and press unions to carry out protests in front of Saudi embassies and consulate in Istanbul, although daily Twitter talk about his death and the launch of a live broadcast on Twitter personalities friendly and close to Khashoggi.
The United States is investigating in suspicious donations received by some of its universities, estimated at $ 1.4 billion, aimed at attracting research centers in these universities, to support Qatari positions within the US decision-making circles, to deny the accusations of countries that have severed relations with them.
The new information reveals the Qatar’s payments by spending millions of dollars as "charity funds" to exploit Khashoggi's incident. The aim is distorting its political opponents, which are Saudi Arabia (in particular), the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, by buying some international media means.
The Gulf and Arab countries, which decided to sever diplomatic relations with Qatar, criticize the behavior of Doha’s media machine, accusing it of broadcasting incitement speeches and adopting an extremist speech that is inconsistent with the principles of good relations and contributes to increasing tensions in the region.
The Libyan military spokesperson Ahmed Al-Mesmari accused Qatar of supporting terrorism in Libya by supporting some extremist organizations and called on Qatar to stop such activities. Also in last July, Italian police announced in a statement that they held air missile in a good condition, which used by the Qatari army as well as other sophisticated weapons were on their way to groups belonging to extremist groups in Italy, and this incident is still under investigation.
The New York Times also revealed in July that Qatar is involved in the bombing of Bosasso port in Somalia. The newspaper said that a Qatari businessman, close to the Emir of Qatar, made a phone call to the Qatari ambassador to Somalia, Hassan Hashim, a week after the explosion and said that the bombing comes to promote the interests of Qatar by expelling its rival in Somalia in reference to the commercial investments of UAE there.
