Incitement Against Israel In Qatari Press Continues: Only More Attacks Like October 7 Will Restrain It; The Conflict Will End Only With Disappearance Of Israel

While Qatar serves as a mediator in negotiations between Israel and Hamas, the Qatari state  press  continues to publish incitement against Israel and to praise Hamas' October 7, 2023 terrorist attack, as it has done since the day of the attack itself.[1] The Qatari press regularly prints articles, reports and cartoons expressing hope for Israel's demise, which refer to the country as n "Western product" or as a "Zionist-Crusader" and "imperialist" enterprise and contend that only more operations like the October 7 attack will stop it from realizing its plan to expand "from the Nile to the Euphrates." An article by a Hamas official on the website of Qatar's Al-Jazeera channel called the attack "a scaled-down model of the final war of liberation and the disappearance of the Zionist occupation."

Hamas, on the other hand, is presented in the Qatari press as "an idea" that will never die, and its operatives and leaders are described as "heroes" whose mission is "to liberate all of Palestine" and to eliminate "the Zionist Arabs" and the Arab "tyrants subservient to the U.S" (i.e. the Arab regimes that have relations with Israel). The articles exhort the Arab nation to support and arm Hamas "even at the expense of feeding its children," because "jihad must continue with full force until Palestine is once more Arab and Islamic."
