“Qatar funds terrorist organizations, such as Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, and propagates disinformation,” said the famous American broadcaster.

“Why do our children have to watch documentaries glorifying Osama bin Laden, the man who always tried to kill us?” Scarborough added.

“It makes countries such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE right in their accusations and reservations about the channel,” Scarborough said, referring to Arab and Gulf countries’ stance against Qatari funding of terrorist organizations.
