U.S. National Security Adviser: Qatar and Turkey Are New Sponsors of Radical Ideology

(The National-Abu Dhabi) Joyce Karam - U.S. National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster criticized Qatar's and Turkey's "new role" in sponsoring and funding extremist ideology on Tuesday at a meeting sponsored by Britain's Policy Exchange in Washington. He said, "radical Islamist ideology is obviously a grave threat to all civilized people." While he made reference to Saudi Arabia's support for radical Islamist charities, madrassas and other social organizations decades ago, he said it "is now done more by Qatar, and by Turkey." On Iran, McMaster described the government in Tehran as a "rogue regime also and a revisionist regional power." He said, "we need to counter destabilizing activity especially in Syria," as well as block support for Iran's proxies and its paths to nuclear weapons.
