Since starting the crisis with its Arab brothers, with a prior coordination with regional regimes and organizations that adopt the same Qatari doctrine in spreading chaos and supporting terrorism, Qatar has worked through its intelligence agencies and its Ikhwani groups to open channels of communication with individuals and opposition groups in the Gulf affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood or Iran, and provided them with financial, media and political support, and guaranteed financing their activities, covering their events and extending their influence with the aim of targeting the security and stability of their homelands as well as their regimes and governments.

The Qatari intelligence service approached Saudi, Emirati, Bahraini and Egyptian opposition figures and organizations, such as the late Saudi journalist Gamal Khashoggi and the so-called “Youth Coalition of the February 14 Revolution”, a Bahraini pro-Iranian opposition which is classified as a terrorist group. Qatar also welcomed members of the secret Muslim Brotherhood organization who fled the UAE and provided them with forged documents to travel to Turkey, in order to support them to continue spreading incitement against the UAE through Doha’s and the Muslim Brotherhood’s media platforms.

The Qatari security authorities have developed a comprehensive plan to communicate, reorganize and prepare all Saudi, Emirati, Bahraini and Egyptian dissidents to strengthen their activities against the governments of the boycotting countries. It has also developed a strategy to coordinate the efforts of these dissidents and push them into forming groups to spread incitement and abuse to their homelands, recruit and mobilize researchers and organize conferences. For this purpose, Qatar allocated a huge budget that was distributed for salaries, hiring pens, media, financing activities and conferences and training opposition members and leaders on how to carry out activities and programs that harm their homelands and leaders.

However, due to Qatar’s failure in achieving its goals by supporting some groups against their home countries and wasting billions for that, Doha resorted to expanding its terrorist activities in the region by seeking to establish covert terrorist groups to target the security and stability of the Arab countries. For this, Qatar has tried to exploit the conditions of the Syrian refugees by recruiting and turning them into tools to strike at the security, stability, interests and economy of some Gulf countries. It would not be a surprise to know that Qatar was behind the creating and establishing an official headquarters of the pro-Iranian so-called “Youth Coalition of the February 14 Revolution” to work against the stability of the Gulf in absolute freedom, especially after the Swiss intelligence revealed about the support of Qatar to terrorist organizations and extremist groups in several European capitals, including Switzerland.

These groups and organizations have taken a hostile role and position from the Arab Coalition countries which are fighting the Houthi terrorist organizations in Yemen. Despite the Qatari denial, the Swiss intelligence confirmed Doha’s links to these networks and terrorist support groups. The reports revealed that the Qatari authorities have worked in more than one European and Arab capital to form terrorist groups whose mission is to attack the Arab quartet and work to give them legitimacy in those capitals, including the Youth Coalition of the February 14 Revolution, which has made its way to Baghdad under Iranian-Qatari pressures on the Iraqi government.

Doha’s recent decisions on facilitating visas’ granting for Iranian nationals to Qatar, and the revelations of the Qatari Prince’s use of Revolutionary Guard troops to protect his palace from any popular uprising that may occur after the current crisis, have raised many of the increasingly assertive speculations about a Qatari-Iranian plan aims at forming new terrorist organizations and cells, spreading them in the Arab countries, especially the Gulf States, with the aim of undermining the security and stability of the region and bringing them into a cycle of chaos as one of the most important steps of the expansionist Iranian project and the Qatari revenge’s scheme.
