Syria's government is waging "a war of extermination" against its own people, the prime minister of Qatar said Tuesday, according to state media. The comments came hours after a failed four-day ceasefire during a Muslim holiday left hundreds dead.
In strongly worded comments to the Al Jazeera Arabic network, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem Al Thani also accused foreign powers of standing by while President Bashar al-Assad's forces carried out a slaughter.
NOT only are they standing by, but they contributing!
Hypocritical? Perhaps. Qatar made a point of legitimizing Hamas with a Gaza visit a few days ago. Now they are balancing it out with this statement.
I think Hamaas won an american style election? Maybe you can ask Mr Bush junior?
Good morning @ BOMBO, i cant imagine theres much left of their population eh?
Qatar free your women before taking issues with other government
Stop supplying the rebel in Syria AKA terrorist with money and weapons and fighting would stop. When your societies are democrats then speak of other. Princes of Qatar look in the mirror )
well maria, two things wrong doesnt make right.whatever is in qatar doesnt matter. assad is committing genocide to his people not from now but since the 1980s
By the way, he own aljazeera, that is democrat isn't .
hmmmm?! he doesnt own it, moreover research his wife and women rights in Qatar before mumbling...i am an atheist but to call a whole race/religion out based on the action of a few is ignorant. Moreover, Syria is secular and rules by no religion. There are 1.6 or so billion muslims in the world, if they were all as bad as you claiming them to be, if each killed 1 opposing religion member, thats 1.6billion dead....logic, knowledge, information, is something you severely lack
OMG. A Muslim country like Qatar accusing someone else of genocide? Wow!! Syrians government must have done something really, really bad to receive such a compliment from Qatar.
We have the power to stop this genocide yet we stand by watching and making useless comments. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Would they do the same for you?
Hmm, mind telling us your solution? Power? Drop the 82nd Airborne in there, is that your suggestion/cure/solution?
YOU got the power. Go over there and stand up for what you believe. Wave a white flag.
Oh, you're busy. Cool. Must be an AmeriKan, hoping your guy the cult leader gets in. Vote then and shhhhhhh...
Sham on you Mr. Anderson for having so called faked Andy or randy reporting from Homs .sham on you CNN for not apologizing for false reporting.
The prince of Qatar will buy CNN soon to push his agenda in the US,
Did CNN just show a scroll that Iranian warships docked in Sudan as a show of support? Did they mean Syria? If it's really Sudan, that's quite a trick! Was it like Noah's Ark landing on Mt. Ararat?
I think you might want to take another look at a world map. It's more effort for Iran to dock in Syria than Sudan. Both are possible.
Lying liars accusing other lying liars.
and then, there is...Jane.
Hi, you paragon or truth, honesty and the American way.
This had to be the worst coverage of a disaster that I've seen. The same couple people standing in knee deep water while the obviously higher ground was within camera shot. Even now, CNN can't seem to upload some meaningful pictures and maps of the damage.
Thats alot of bull we can go invade Iraq and Iran for oil but we cannot help people that really need it.
Its really funny how no one mentions the fact the the place is at civil war. Both sides have their share of crimes, evidence suggesting that the FSA has more since it hides among women and children putting Civilians at risk. Both sides are equally responsible for Civilian deaths. the funny thing is the Sharia Led FSA is actually jailing and some reports are saying that killing people that are caught consuming alcohol. Not to mention the al qaida style kidnapping ( which is "halal" in their mind to kidnap someone for ransom, this is one of leading methods AL qaida gets funding.
The problem with leaders such as Mr. Qatar here, is they convinced their people that what is happening in syria is the Army attacks peaceful, Civilian, Unarmed Protestors. Al jazeera ( Qatar ) and al Arabya ( Saudi Arabia ) are broadcasting nothing but pure, one sided propaganda like this daily. Unless you were living under a rock or in a cave, you will know for sure that the situation in syria is more complex and much worse.
