Arab and Muslim sites such as Al-Manar, Islam Times and this pro palestinian propoganda site have reported that Tzipi Livni claimed the Arab Emirate of Qatar funded the electoral campaigns of Binyamin Netanyahu and Yisrael Beitenu!
The Zionist former Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni admitted last week that the Arab Emirate of Qatar has funded the electoral campaign of Zionist Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and that of the ‘Yisrael Beiteinu’ party.
During an interview with the Zionist television Channel-1, Livni said that her rival Netanyahu has received from Qatar $3 million and the ‘Yisrael Beiteinu’ party $1.5 million for their campaigns.
However, Netanyahu promised the Qatari emir in exchange that he will meet Hamas after the elections and that the right-wing coalition will promote the creation of a Jordanian-Palestinian governed federation, she added, noting that Hamas and the Zionist officials had already secret meetings in Doha.
Livni also stated that she is a close friend of Mrs. Mozah, wife of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the Emir of Qatar.
Of course, Livni never made such a claim.
According to the Israeli site Mida, the rumor was disseminated by Syria’s Addounia TV, as a way for Syrian dorktator Bashar Assad to settle accounts with the Qatari emir. You see, the emir last year issued a call to send Arab troops to Syria to overthrow Assad’s regime and prevent the massacre of civilians. Assad is also displeased with the Qatari owned Al Jazeera, claiming they are biased against him.
Poor Livni. She’s certainly been a favorite of Arab conspiracy nuts.
