Qatari Opposition: Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani’s statement widely accepted in Qatar
The official spokesperson of the Qatari Opposition, Khaled al-Hayl, said that Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali al-Thani’s statements have gained widespread acceptance in Qatar.
In an interview with Al Arabiya, al-Hayl said that Sheikh Abdullah Bin Ali Al-Thani is leading the course correction in a major step.
He stressed that this is a major step awaited by Qatar for some time, pointing to the need of Qataris to “correct the path, not the crisis.”
He pointed out that Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali al-Thani has been very popular since the eighties, stressing that he is not acting out of benefit to personal interests, rather to correct the course.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali al-Thani tweeted a message to the people of Qatar requesting them to unite to “be the messengers of peace”.
“To my family, the children, the businessmen, and all the people of Qatar. I invite you to meet to be messengers of wisdom and peace, and advocates for the uniting of the hearts,” he tweeted on Sunday night.
Al-Thani requested a national meeting with him regarding a crisis “which we can no longer remain silent on”, he said in a one-page statement released on Sunday.
