Former Qatari PM lays ground for Assad’s claim for compensation from foreign governments

An interview going viral across Arabic social media quotes former Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani as claiming that his country, along with Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United States, began shipping weapons to “jihadists” from the very moment that the Syrian civil war erupted in 2011.

According a Syrian economic adviser close to the Assad government in Damascus, this high level “public admission of collusion and coordination between four countries to destabilize an independent state, including possible support for Nusra/al-Qaeda… is aimed at building a case for Damascus “to claim hefty compensation” from those governments.

    This is a damn interesting idea to consider. What about 911 and Saudi Arabia?

    The barbaric monsters must pay for their destruction and murder and driving off millions of Syrians from their established livelihoods, and homeland they cherished so.

    I had made a comment yesterday regarding the efforts made on the dictator Assad’s behalf by the former Qatari PM and an unnamed Syrian economic adviser to collect compensation for Assad as a result of us arming “jihadists” (which actually turned out to be the Free Syrian Army: not terrorists at all) and my comment was removed due to my suggesting they deserved sandwiches containing an ingredient which is “not part of their normal diet” (although popular in the West———-so you can just guess what that was) for their efforts.
    True, I was just being very sarcastic, and DEBKAfile had every right to remove it but I was really only trying to point out the total hypocrisy existing in the Middle East by some of the countries and “leaders” there.
    Sorry if I offended anyone at DEBKAfile as that was certainly not my intention.
