More details have emerged on Qatar’s ties with terrorism and the role played by its charities in spreading extremist ideology, in an article published by the American Center for Democracy on Tuesday.

The article listed three examples related to Qatar Charity’s (QC) activities in the Middle East, North Africa and even North America.

The report said: “QC was ranked first by the United Nations for its relief efforts in the Syrian, Palestinian, and Somali crises. Of course, there was no mention of Qatar’s involvement in the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya.”

It added: “That was followed by $550,000 to aid Libyan refugees. However, a map provided by the QC itself that enumerates its historic activity around the world shows no activity at all in Libya.”
