Saud al-Qahtani, an advisor at Saudi Arabia’s royal court, slammed on Tuesday night Qatar’s former Foreign Minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani who tried to hold the anti-terror quartet responsible for the Gulf crisis and accused it of harming the Gulf Cooperation Council, provoking anger across the region.
“He cries crocodile tears on the GCC and claims that we violate the council’s regulations that must be unanimous. He says these silly statements to more than half of the GCC countries which boycotted him!
Responding to Bin Jassim’s question about evidence on Doha’s policy, he said: “He’s (asking) where the evidence against the authority east of Salwa is? If the crisis’ blessing is only Al-Jazeera television channel and the rest of the shadow media which they’ve denied adopting and funding to be a mouthpiece of the authority like the Qatar Radio, then it would be enough.”
Qahtani also described Bin Jassim’s remarks as lies and said: “He continues to lie until he believes his own lie. He is saying there are laws which prevent people from sympathizing with the Qatari people.”
Commenting on Bin Jassim’s statements about entertainment in Saudi Arabia, Qahtani said: “He still thinks he is a skillful shrewd man by hinting at entertainment in Saudi Arabia. Bin Jaber, entertainment in Saudi Arabia is according to our customs, traditions and values. It’s an innocent entertainment which you neither understand nor know.”
