662

DW’s Conflict Zone’s Tim Sebastian recently did his usual “bad cop” thing, this time with Qatar’s foreign ministry spokesperson Lolwah Al-Khater. Among his questions were some related to why the Qatari government has not designated Hamas as a terrorist organization and why it promotes antisemitism.

Watch her flounder as she tries to dodge and weave. But if you don’t have the time or patience to watch, here is the Cliff Notes version:

Question: “Why does your government not designate Hamas as a terrorist organization?”



Answer: “But Israel!”

Question: “Why does your government promote antisemitism?”

Answer: “But Islamophobia! And Israel!”
