America's "Allies" - Qatar and Turkey - Are Accessories to Hamas' War Crimes

(Gatestone Institute) Alan M. Dershowitz - American allies, especially Qatar and Turkey, have been providing material support to Hamas, which the U.S. has listed as a foreign terrorist organization. This support includes financial, diplomatic, media and even the provision of weapons that deliberately target Israeli civilians. It also includes harboring war criminals, especially leaders of Hamas, who direct their followers from the safety of Doha. Without the support of Qatar and Turkey, Hamas would never have started this bloody war. If Hamas were ever to be convicted of war crimes by the International Criminal Court, as it may well be, any individual who was an accessory to such crimes would be guilty as well. It is entirely fair, therefore, to describe Qatar as a criminal regime, guilty of accessory to mass murder. The time has come for the U.S. to reassess the status of Qatar and Turkey. Both should be treated as pariahs until they stop being state sponsors, supporters and facilitators of terrorism.
