Qatar's emir, a U.S. ally, assails Obama's Syria policy
Yahoo News - 5 months
Qatar's emir criticized U.S. President Barack Obama's policy on Syria on Tuesday, highlighting the growing frustration among U.S. allies at what they perceive to be Washington's lackluster action towards the protracted civil war. Qatar, home to a U.S. base, is a vocal critic of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and, like the United States, has supported rebels seeking to topple Assad. Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, criticized Obama's so-called "red line" on Syria.

Rights activists attack 'sham' Qatar labour reforms
Yahoo News - over 1 year
Rights groups on Wednesday dismissed as a "sham" long-awaited reforms of Qatar's much-criticised "kafala" labour system for foreign workers, which critics have likened to modern-day slavery. Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, approved Tuesday a new law overseeing the sponsorship system -- which currently only allows workers to leave the country with the approval of their employer -- as well as rules that allow workers to switch jobs. Sharan Burrow, general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation, one of Qatar's fiercest critics, said the latest changes were little more than "sham reforms".

Qatar to introduce pay reform for migrant workers
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Qatar said Thursday it would introduce a major labour law reform to ensure thousands of workers building venues for the 2022 World Cup are paid on time, after complaints by rights groups. The changes by the future hosts of football's biggest tournament, approved by Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, will see workers get paid at least once a month and in some cases every fortnight. The move, which will apply to all workers, could head off some criticism of Qatar following mounting international pressure to improve conditions for migrant labourers working on projects for the World Cup. The announcement comes with the international spotlight set to fall on Qatar again as FIFA officials visit Doha early next week to finalise a date for the controversial tournament.

By Amena Bakr DOHA (Reuters) - Qatar will host a meeting between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Sunday to try to reach a ceasefire agreement with Israel to bring an end to 12 days of warfare, a senior Qatari source told Reuters. Due to take place in Doha, the meeting will be headed by the Gulf state's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, who has been acting as a "channel of communication" between Hamas and the international community, said the senior source familiar with the matter. "Qatar has presented Hamas' requests to the international community, the list has been presented to France and to the U.N., the talks tomorrow will be to further negotiate these conditions." Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has rejected Egyptian efforts to end fighting that has killed more than 300 Palestinians, mostly civilians, saying any deal must include an end to a blockade of the coastal area and a recommitment to a ceasefire reached in an eight-day ...

FIFA has ruled out any possibility that Qatar could co-host the 2022 World Cup with neighbouring countries, Sepp Blatter said on Saturday. The FIFA president added that soccer's governing body had discarded a January-February World Cup in 2022 out of respect for the Olympic family and said Qatar was "reacting" to criticism of its treatment of migrant workers. "The decision of the FIFA is to play in one country and that will be in Qatar," Blatter told a news conference after meeting the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

Qatar slams 'unconditional' proposed Syria talks
Yahoo News - over 3 years
Qatar's emir criticised Tuesday what he claimed were unconditional terms for a proposed peace conference on Syria, saying the talks would lead nowhere and should focus on "achieving justice" for Syria's people. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, whose country has been a main backer of the Syrian rebellion, criticised "attempts by some to substitute achieving justice for the (Syrian) people, who have paid the heaviest price... with unconditional negotiations that lack a timeframe and lead nowhere." His remarks come as Washington, Moscow and the United Nations are trying to fix a date for the so-called Geneva II talks bringing all sides together to discuss a political solution to the Syrian conflict. More than 120,000 people have been killed since an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's regime erupted in March 2011.

In his verses, Muhammad Ibn al-Dheeb al-Ajami praised the Arab Spring revolts that toppled four authoritarian leaders.

Taufiq Rahim: Another Coup for the Outgoing Emir of Qatar
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In July 2010, the (now outgoing) Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, traveled to South Lebanon to bask in the gratitude for his country's largesse in supporting reconstruction following the Israeli bombardment just four years earlier. The $300 million (and beyond) committed by the Gulf state was very much appreciated by the Shiite armed movement Hezbollah, who ensured billboards in the South and on Airport Road in Beirut were decorated with notes of thanks to the Emir. It was a conspicuous visit because Qatar had stood out amongst the GCC in taking a strong if not controversial stand. Hand-in-hand with Hezbollah, the Emir, was not apparently one of the "half-men" that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad pointed to in the Gulf during the 2006 Hezbollah-Israel war. In fact, the Emir and Assad were quite close, if not close friends, and were frequently in touch. In 2013, Qatar finds itself at the forefront on a number of regional issues, most notably the conflict ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani
    TWENTIES
  • 2016
    Age 25
    In January 2016, Tamim shook up the cabinet put in place by his father.
    More Details Hide Details He named a new foreign minister, replacing Khalid al-Attiyah with Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, changed the defense minister and appointed a new female minister. Tamim also merged several ministries, including communication, transport and culture, and youth and sports. Journalists have speculated reasons behind the cabinet shake up. And many have come to the conclusion that the reorganization was either an economic move, meant to save the country money at a time where the falling price of gas has forced the country to scale back its workforce or for reasons of political stability. According to others the appointments show that the emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, is trying to make the government his own by bringing in a new, younger generation of ministers that are more loyal to him than to his father. The young Emir's transition to power was welcomed by leaders across the World, who expected Tamim to continue the good work in the footsteps of his father and increase Qatar's role in vital international affairs including the Syrian crisis and Darfur agreement.
  • 2015
    Age 24
    On 2 December 2015, Tamim signed a number of agreements with president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
    More Details Hide Details Cooperative agreements in education, maritime transport and correspondence pacts between intelligence agencies were signed. An agreement was also reached by Turkey to purchase liquefied natural gas from Qatar over a lengthy duration. The two leaders also announced the planned creation of a Turkish military base in Qatar; a first for Turkey in the Persian Gulf.
    In June 2015, Qatar successfully mediated efforts to free four Tajikistan soldiers kidnapped in December 2014 in Afghanistan by a Taliban group.
    More Details Hide Details Furthermore, Qatar has provided loans and massive investments to Ennahdha-led government in Tunisia, and to Islamist parties in Yemen and Morocco.
    Recently, under the aegis of a joint initiative with Saudi Arabia and Turkey promoted by Sheikh Tamim, Qatar has provided Syrian rebels with new weapons and forged a new opposition coalition in Syria known as “Army of Conquest.” The Sheikh has also renewed his country’s support for the Syrian people’s demands for justice and freedom during a meeting with the chief of the Syrian National Coalition Khaled Khoja and his delegation in April 2015.
    More Details Hide Details Tamim signed a military cooperation agreement with Turkey during an official visit to the country in December 2014. The agreement aims to promote cooperation in military training and the defense industry, and allows for the deployment of the Turkish Armed Forces to Qatar and the Qatari military to Turkey.
    During his visit at Georgetown University in February 2015, Sheikh Tamim denied all charges.
    More Details Hide Details According to the German regional public service television channel “WDR” several of its reporters were detained for several days in Qatar for collecting evidence on the conditions of migrant workers. The Guardian has reported that Nepalese migrants building the infrastructure to host the 2022 World Cup died at a rate of one every two days in 2014. Human Rights Watch’s “2014 World Report” confirmed the precarious conditions of the migrant workers, who sometimes live in unsanitary conditions and are subject to arbitrary restrictions on the right to leave Qatar, exploitation and abuse by employers. In response, Qatar commissioned an investigation by the international law firm DLA Piper that resulted in laws that require contractors to provide improved living conditions and ban them from seizing passports. The Emir of Qatar reformed by law the kafala system the following year. Kafala reforms During the 2016 May Day celebration in Bonn, Germany, an Amnesty campaigner named Bettina Hoffmann took the opportunity to call out Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who she says is indifferent to the struggle of the foreign workers. She said that Amnesty is concerned about the tens of thousands of Asian workers who are working on football stadiums and infrastructure for the 2022 soccer World Cup in Qatar. Amnesty estimates some 70,000 laborers - many from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh - are quasi slaves in the Gulf state, which is ruled by Qatar's Emir. Hoffmann says the foreign workers must give up their passports, receive late wages if they receive wages at all, and are voiceless.
    Finally, on the occasion of a meeting of the Arab League in February 2015, Qatar expressed reservations over Egypt’s unilateral military response to the ISIL execution of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya.
    More Details Hide Details In response to Qatar’s protest, an Egyptian diplomat reiterated the accusation of Qatar allegedly supporting terrorists. Qatar insisted that the charge is false and recalled its ambassador to Egypt for consultations. In a September CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour, Tamim stated "We don't fund extremists" … "If you talk about certain movements, especially in Syria and Iraq, we all consider them terrorist movement." In this quotation Tamim can be seen to argue that he and the west are united in considering ISIS a terror group and was quick to defend his country from accusations of ISIS funding. However, Tamim goes on to say that he doesn’t see eye to eye with the west in all of their terrorist designations: "I know that in America and some countries they look at some movements as terrorist movements.... But there are differences. There are differences that some countries and some people that any group which comes from Islamic background are terrorists. And we don't accept that." It has been suggested that, in this quotation, Tamim was referring to Qatar’s financial and militaristic support for al Nusra, the Al Qaeda branch in Syria, which his government has been known to fund, mostly through ransom payments for victims of kidnapping.
  • 2014
    Age 23
    In December 2014 the U.S. Treasury Department added the Qatari academic and businessman Abd al-Rahman al-Nuaymi to its terror list after he “ordered the transfer of nearly $600,000 to alQa'ida via al-Qa'ida's representative in Syria, Abu-Khalid al-Suri, and intended to transfer nearly $50,000 more."
    More Details Hide Details
    In July 2014 Tamim renewed the defense agreement with the U.S. and confirmed Qatar’s cooperation with the United States in the Combined Air Operations Center (CENTCOM) at Al Udeid Air Base. Sheikh Tamim visited with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House on a visit to Washington, D.C. on 24 February 2015, according to a statement issued by the Office of the White House Press Secretary.
    More Details Hide Details Doha-based analysts described the task before him during the visit as one of balancing the need to maintain strong relations with the United States against the desire for Qatar to control its own foreign policy, which is sometimes at odds with the United States on key regional issues. He declared that the U.S.-Qatari “strategic partnership has deepened in recent years, in spite of the regional unrest” and reiterated his commitment to support a more comprehensive approach to the strategic challenges facing the Middle East. According to a diplomatic source close to the Al Thani family, Sheikh Tamim has "a strong personality" that allowed him to "establish himself within the ruling family" despite not being the family's first choice for Emir. He is described as friendly, confident, and open by those who know him. He is also described as savvy, careful, and calculating. In addition, he is considered to be a pragmatist, and to have "excellent relations" with the West including the United States and France.
    The country’s support for Islamist causes and for organizations that oppose the absolute rule of the Gulf’s hereditary rulers provoked tensions with the GCC countries. In March 2014 Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates withdrew their ambassadors from Qatar.
    More Details Hide Details Officially, the decision was motivated by Qatar’s refusal to ratify the agreements of non-interference in domestic policy within the GCC in December 2013. Some analysts observed that the diplomatic crisis was the peak of long-time degenerated relationships of Qatar with the Arab countries, who have rebuked Qatar for backing Islamists during Arab Spring revolts and are supportive of the new military-oriented Egyptian regime. Also, there have been speculations that Sheikh Hamad’s abdication was motivated by the necessity of reinvigorating the leadership, but also to defuse criticism from Arab neighbors for Qatar’s support of Islamists. In particular, the contradictory nature of Qatar’s policies in support for Islamist groups and its active contribution to the American-led coalition to fight the Islamic state has been of recent interest. Qatar has been publicly accused of supporting Islamic terrorism. According to an article published by the Wall Street Journal, American officials have confirmed that U.S. has uncovered Qatari connections in financing for al Qaeda and Islamic State.
    Sheikh Tamim also has a third wife Noora bint Hathal Al Dosari, whom he married in March 2014.
    More Details Hide Details They have one son: Tamim participates in competitive sport. He was filmed playing badminton and bowled with former Egyptian military chief Mohammed Hussein Tantawi. He has a strong interest in history and his nation's heritage. He is fluent in English and French. Qatar has for many years supported a spectrum of Islamist groups around the region. Especially since the beginning of the Arab Spring upheaval in 2011, the country has provided diplomatic mediation, financial aid, safe heaven, and weapons to Islamist groups. The Qatar-based pan-Arab satellite television channel Al Jazeera, accused by Israel-supporters of having strong pro-Islamist biases, promoted the narratives of the Islamist parties and causes supported by Qatar, thereby contributing to the electoral success of some of these movements during national polls. For several years the channel has hosted a talk-show, “al-Sharīʿa wa al-Ḥayāh” ("Shariah and Life"), featuring the controversial Brotherhood-associated Egyptian cleric Yusuf al- Qaradawi.
    Qatar's continued support for the Muslim Brotherhood resulted in a diplomatic rift between Doha and Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates in 2014, culminating in the withdrawal of the latter three countries' ambassadors in March of that year.
    More Details Hide Details Qatar called for a military intervention of the Arab countries to end the bloodshed in Syria in 2012. Analysts expected that he would have been under immediate pressure to reduce Qatar's support for the rebels in the Syrian Civil War, which Tamim had previously supported. In fact, Sheikh Tamim took a step back after taking charge, primarily in response to the irritation voiced by Western powers at Qatar’s operation to arm Syrian rebel groups which had been directed haphazardly.
    Under his guidance, Qatar won the rights to host the 2014 FINA Swimming World Championships and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
    More Details Hide Details Tamim is a member of the International Olympic Committee and the National Olympic Committee chairman. He headed Doha's bid for the 2020 Olympics. The country will host the football World Cup in 2022. Qatar is expected to spend about $100 billion on infrastructure to prepare for the event. Sheikh Tamim heads the Qatar Investment Authority board of directors. Under his leadership, the fund has invested billions in British businesses. It owns large stakes in Barclays Bank, Sainsbury's, and Harrods. The fund also owns a share of Europe's fourth tallest building, the Shard. Tamim has also held a number of other posts including:
  • 2013
    Age 22
    Speaking at Georgetown University during his first visit to the United States, Tamim reiterated that Qatar will not interfere in Egypt although he condemned what happened in Egypt after the 2013 uprising.
    More Details Hide Details Since Mohamed Morsi’s removal from office, the new government has turned down Qatari offers for financial aid.
    Qatar has heavily invested in loans and aids to Egypt during the Muslim Brotherhood’s government. In August 2013, Qatar joined a U.S.-led attempt to mediate the escalating tension between the Muslim Brotherhood and the military.
    More Details Hide Details
    In June 2013, the Taliban opened their first official overseas office in the Qatari capital as part of the long-standing attempt to broker a long-term Afghan peace agreement.
    More Details Hide Details
    According to his inaugural speech to the nation held on 26 June 2013, Sheikh Tamim will continue to diversify the country’s economy away from hydrocarbons.
    More Details Hide Details On that occasion, he declared that people are Qatar’s “most important asset” and that their interests would be the government’s top priority. In 2014 Tamim passed new cybercrime legislation, which was said to be part of an agreement among Gulf states to criminalize online insults of the region’s royal families; The cybercrime law outlaws the spreading of "false news" as well as digital material that violates the country’s "social values" or "general order." The legislation made it illegal to incite, aid and facilitate the publication of offensive material. The law has been criticized by those who say that it can be used to strip people of their human rights based on the misinterpretation of online chatter. Amnesty International called the law "a major setback for freedom of expression in Qatar," while other critics suggest that the new law will violate provisions of the country’s constitution that protect civil liberties.
    On 25 June 2013, the Emir of Qatar and Tamim's father, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, revealed his plans to step down as Emir in a meeting with his close relatives and aides.
    More Details Hide Details Tamim then became the Emir of Qatar after his father handed over power in a televised speech. He was the first ruler, in a succession of three Qatari rulers from the Al Thani family, to ascend to power without resorting to a coup. According to The Economist, of his previous sibling rivals to the throne, "One played too much, the other prayed too much." The transition of power was expected to be smooth, as family members hold many of the nation's top posts. Moreover, according to a diplomatic source close to the Al Thani family, Sheikh Tamim has "a strong personality" that allowed him to "establish himself within the ruling family" despite not being the family's first choice for Emir. Diplomats quoted by the BBC argued that Jassim, who served as crown prince for eight years, had hoped to expand his political powers. According to a report by Stratfor, Jassim had no allies among the military forces or secret police at the time of the 2013 political transition, and thereby few chances to overturn Hamad’s decree.
