Qatar came out with a list of groups and actors that it considers as falling into the ‘terrorist’ category after some coaxing from the US, as well as the considerable pressure from an Arab quartet comprised of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt.
Commenting on the latest move, David A. Weinberg writes on the Anti-Defamation League’s website that “Qatar’s list provides striking substance to its ruler’s 2014 declaration that his country has a rather different view of what constitutes terrorism than countries such as America.”
Weinberg points out that Qatar’s new terrorism list “still falls short in some crucial regard, omitting those terrorist groups responsible for the greatest number of fatalities in America, Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, or Saudi Arabia, for example.”
He says the efforts to designate terrorists “still contain so many problematic holes that the country’s counterterrorism posture could also be likened to Swiss cheese.”
