Qatar’s ceasefire offer adopts most Hamas demands [Israel]
The Times of Israel ^ | Saturday, July 19, 2014 | Avi Issacharoff

Document widely rejected but still being pushed by emirate; was drawn up when Hamas, Qatar thought Israeli ground offensive unlikely.

Qatar has drafted its own version of a truce offer between Israel and Hamas, The Times of Israel has learned – and it adopts almost all of Hamas’s demands.

The document underscores the power struggle being waged behind the scenes of the Gaza conflict between Cairo’s new leadership and Turkey and Qatar — two countries which supported the Muslim Brotherhood’s rule in Egypt and its ousted president Mohammed Morsi. Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was removed from power in Egypt in 2013 by then military chief, now president, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

The Qatari document was presented to US officials, Western diplomats and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas earlier this week, before Israel began its ground offensive in Gaza on Thursday night. Qatar reportedly demanded that the US help in mediation between the sides, excluding Egypt from the proceedings.

Promoting the document on Doha’s behalf is Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammed al-Attiyah, who had said in closed conversations last week that he did not believe Israel would launch a ground operation. Washington held intensive talks with Qatar over the offer but eventually chose the Egyptian proposal.

It was Turkey and Qatar that sabotaged the deal that both Israel and Egypt agreed to. Egypt hates both Turkey and Qatar, because of their interference into Egypt's internal affairs and trying to get the Muslim Brotherhood to take over Egypt. The Egyptian Military deposed the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood President in a Egypt and installed a military man as President now. Egypt has arrested just about all of the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in a Egypt!

Qatar is the new Afghanistan, with money, and has taken over has the base for radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood (ie HAMAS, A-Qaeda, ISIS, Libya Rebels, A multitude of terrist splinter groups, Egypt’s Morsi) .

They have went over to the dark side .

Thank God that Obama and our Islamofascist enemies lost in Egypt.

You bet! I’m glad Egypt dealt the Muslim Brotherhood a huge setback!

Yet another reminder of why America needs to access every drop of oil on this continent, and China needs to do the same, so these towelhead criminals can be completely isolated. Arab power has a horrific and disproportionate impact on world affairs.

If the title is factually accurate, it does not suprise me one bit.

I asked yesterday why anyone but an Islamist would seek the participation of the Qatari shieks in any deal.

The Egypts need to remain somewhat polite where Gaza/Hamas is concerned. It is thru Egypt that most of the weaponry in Gaza has traveled. All of the smuggling tunnels into Gaza start in the Sinai. While the Egypts were doing a decent job of pumping sewage down some of them they apparently haven’t flooded them all. The leaders of Hamas are known to be camping out in Egypt so that makes any motive of the Egypts suspicious. And the Egypts are a little limp-wristed when it comes to honoring their treaty with the Israelis. None of this would be happening without Egypt operating with one eye closed on the Gaza border.

Maybe Egypt can clean itself up but so far there has been way too much sympathetic help for Hamas coming from the Egypt side. And remember: The Egypts want nothing more to do with directly tangling with Israel. They got that out of their system back in 1973.

It must be hard to tell the difference.

Linking to a thread on Free Republic is not proper attribution, nor does the link go to the original publisher of the article. Posting all of an article except one short sentence or a couple of words is not a proper excerpt. Excerpt out half of an article with 600 or less words. If the article has more than 600 words, all that's permitted to be posted is 300 words or less.

When we ask folks to abide by copyright restrictions, each time a published article is posted whether as the basis for a thread or if posted in a response, proper attribution must be given to the original source of publication, a working link must be provided which goes to the actual article on the original site of publication, and the published material must be excerpted according to the excerpt only list found here:

Updated FR Excerpt and Link Only or Deny Posting List due to Copyright Complaints
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1111944/posts

If the published article is found on a site listed on the do not publish list found at the above link, or is from any Gannett Publication, you may not post any material from that site at all.

Thanks.

Okay, if I understand that right, instead of referring to the Free Republic posted article and link ... use the actual article itself, and original link to the original publication.

And then on the word count ... I understand the number. The magic number is 600 words ... If the original article is less than 600 words, excerpt out 1/2 or more; if more than 600 words, then have no more than 300 words for an excerpt.

And then, for attribution — a question here — is just the active and working link okay by itself?? ... Or does the name of the publication have to be included along with the original link?

As far as the excluded list, if I understand right, when I do post an original article here on Free Republic (in its own thread, by itself), your algorithm actually checks for that and will let me know if it cannot be used. I only say that, because mainly I’ll just be using articles that I’ve already posted on Free Republic in their own thread (but I’ll have to use their original link when posting on another thread.).

I hope I got all that right, because I would like to make reference to those articles that I’ve posted, when I’m commenting on a different thread.

Thanks for your help.

Oh the irony of Qatar proposing to mediate between a country it does not recognize and the terrorists they help fund to destroy it.

"I asked yesterday why anyone but an Islamist would seek the participation of the Qatari shieks in any deal."

""We resemble that remark!"

"Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton proposed that Qatar – the chief financier of Hamas [AND HUGE DONOR TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION] – could play a key role in mediating peace between the Israelis and Palestinians."
