Western media has reported there is a huge crisis within Qatar’s ruling family. The discord was over a report on recent confidential calls between Hamad bin Khalifa, former Emir and the current ruling Tamim bin Hamad’s father, and Abdullah bin Hamad Al Thani Emir’s brother and a successor to him. The report was came to Tamim bin Hamad’s office.

According to Al-Youm Al-Sabaa, the reports indicates that Tamim is concerned about the issue. He wonders that can this contact and communication be a preparation for a military takeover in Qatar. Since, Hamad has a broken relationship with his son, he is still in London and Abdullah as the new successor is getting ready to take Tamim’s place.

Based on these reports, Tamim’s big concern is to what extent his father is able to plot his overthrow and bring his other son Abdullah to power. So there is tension and conflict among Qatar’s ruling family.

The power is divided between three sides in the family; Tamim bin Hamad, Al Sanad, his uncles who have great power and influence in the country’s security systems, Qatar’s former Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa who is powerful and influential in Doha and makes the first two concerned.

Informed sources said Tamim convened meetings attended by his brother Abdullah and Ms. Moza to review issues related to the ruling family. It is proven that the information released by western media about the crisis among the ruling family after the return of Hamad bin Khalifa, is accurate.

The sorces announced that Hamad is trying to convince western countries that stop supporting Tamim by put them under pressure and recognize his brother Abdullah as the Emir.

Recently, he disclosed a document about Tamim’s intervention in Arab States’ affairs, helping terrorism and supporting extremist group. He also revealed a report about the health of his son and said he suffers severe mental stress and possess a specialized medical team in his palace.

The sources revealed that Emir Hamad bin Khalifa gave a lot of money to some western newspapers in order to disclose his son Tamim’s measures in supporting terrorism. All the evidence suggests that Qatar is on the verge of a new coupe and Tamim’s brother with the support of his father will be the main factor of the coup.

Reports indicate that one of the most important evidence for the discord in the ruling family was that Emir Tamim rejected his father’s request for travelling to Doha last month. Refusing his father’s request, he asked him to stay in London at the time.

It is worth mentioning that Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the deputy Emir of the State of Qatar, was born February 9, 1988 in Doha. He is the seventh son of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, former emir of Qatar, with his third wife Sheikha Noora, the daughter of Khalid Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani.

He has graduated from Georgetown University in the field of international politics. He was the chairman of Al Rayyan Sports Club from 2008 to 2012. In December 20, 2011 he became the Minister of Chief Justice by the order of the Emir. In November 11, 2014 became Tamim’s deputy by his command.

Trouble in paradise ? A civil war there would be rather amusing indeed. Perhaps there will be an influx of mercenary terrorists from Iraq and Syria to assist both factions to kill themselves.

With 313k ‘citiens’, an army of 10k (and only 2k in air force with 12 jet fighters) while there are 2.1M epat workers, mostly Indians, Nepalese and Bangladeshi, your civil war won’t last a lot. There are even more USUK troops here than the national army as CENTCOM is in Qatar and al-Udeid is the biggest AFB in the mid-east. You can be sure there’d be a rapid US intervention and if they don’t move, India is likely to rapidly send their fleet to protect or evacuate their citizens, not counting they’re Nepal/Bengladesh friendly (India supported Bengladesh independence from Pakistan).… Read more »

Tamim is member of the Muslim Brotherhood and you don’t need to be a genius to note that al-Jazeera has became jihad-TV while it’s an open secret that Qatar is the money-laundry for terrorism. Thus, there were already serious issues by the time Hamad was emir as he was already seen as a terrorist/MB active backer. The Brotherhood has visibly infested the whole state, BTW, Tamim backing to MB already led to diplomatic relations getting pretty sour with KSA, Bahrain and UAE. “Qatar called for a military intervention of the Arab countries to end the bloodshed in Syria in 2012.[34]… Read more »
