Cornered by activists in Paris, Qatari diplomat says he’s against Muslim Brotherhood
The second secretary of the Qatari embassy in France was cornered by a group of activists in Paris who were asking him about the Muslim Brotherhood’s relations with Qatar and his stance on political Islam.
In the video, Khater al-Khater, seeming a bit anxious yet with a sarcastic tone in his voice, said that he is against the Muslim Brotherhood.
“Me? Personally? I am against the Muslim Brotherhood for sure,” he replied to the activist.
The activist then asked al-Khater if he is against political Islam, to which he replied that he was personally against it.
“So you support a secular state, that separates between religion and the state?” the activist then asked.
“Personally, and as a diplomat, yes,” al-Khater replied.
The diplomat’s stance raised a few question marks around Qatar’s stance with the Muslim Brotherhood as they have been known to maintain good relations with the group.
