Qatar’s history: A struggle for power among the Al Thani family

Published: Updated:

An Al Arabiya documentary sheds light on Qatar's long standing history of power struggle among its ruling family.

The documentary addresses how former Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa seized power through a coup and how this did not come as a surprise as most of those who ruled before him seized power via the same approach.

Hamad’s ambition though went beyond Qatar and the Gulf and extended to the Arab world.

To achieve his dream, he established new and contradictory alliances, supported extremists and terrorists and attacked and undermined his neighbors.
