The picture is clearer now that Qatar, following months of obduracy and procrastination, issued a terror blacklist, similar to one issued by the anti-terror quartet — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt.
The Qatari list included 19 people in all: 11 Qataris, one Saudi, four Egyptians and two Jordanians. A number of organizations which the anti-terror quartet had blacklisted were also included in the Qatari list, such as Yemen’s Ihsan Charity Association, Egypt’s Wilayat Sinai and six Qatari entities, including the Al-Karama organization.
The UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash commented on Qatar’s move on Twitter: “The Qatari Interior Ministry issued a terror list that includes 19 people and 8 entities. The list includes 10 people whom the boycotting countries previously included in three of the terror lists they issued. Overcoming pride, Qatar has confirmed the evidence against it, and that its support of extremism and terrorism lies at the core of its crisis.”
In June 2017, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain decided to ‘boycott’ Qatar diplomatically, closed all land, air and sea routes to it (barring a few exceptions), and declared that Qatar’s authorities support destructive groups, armed Islamist militias, both Sunni and Shiite, and other organizations that seek to spread tension and strife through Arab and foreign media platforms, either in the name of democracy or in the name of jihad and the Islamic revolution.
