UAE refutes USA paper report on hacking of Qatari websites as "false"

UAE refutes USA paper report on hacking of Qatari websites as

The Washington Post has yet another great informative story - this time about the suspicion that the UAE is behind a hack of Qatar and that the hack was, itself, part of a plan to stir up the Gulf. Doha had previously asked U.S. and British officials to investigate the source of the hack.

The hacked reports said Qatar's emir called Iran an "Islamic power", and heaped praise on Palestine's Hamas organization, among other controversial claims. The Saudis and Emiratis were interested in settling scores with Qatar, they interpreted Trump's embrace in Riyadh a couple days earlier as a green light for them to do what they liked, and they just needed to fabricate a reason to launch their punitive campaign.

Saudi Arabia and its allies imposed sanctions on Doha on June 5, including closing its only land border, denying Qatar access to their airspace and ordering their citizens back from the emirate. They vowed to continue their political and economic pressure on Qatar until it changes its policy.

The claim by the agency is that it got hacked but after these controversial statements Saudi Arab, UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt all cut ties with Qatar. If the reports are true, it proves how easy it is to set up bait for Trump - and to create an worldwide crisis now that he is president.

Qatar hosts al-Udeid Air Base, the largest USA military installation in the Middle East and hub for US -led operations against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.

A fake news story claiming Arab nations had demanded that Federation Internationale de Football Association strip Qatar of the 2022 World Cup appeared on a website created to look like a credible Swiss news publication.

Qatar's Foreign Minister told reporters in Turkey on Friday that it would be unfair to describe Tillerson's visit to the Gulf as a failure, insisting that the crisis "cannot be solved in a day".

Gargash hailed Qatar's decision last week to sign a memorandum of understanding on terrorist financing with the United States as "a positive development" by the foreign minister. It said in a statement on Monday that the Post report "unequivocally proves that this hacking crime took place".

"The UAE had no role whatsoever in the alleged hacking described in the article", said the UAE's ambassador to the USA in a statement. "Funding, supporting, and enabling extremists from the Taliban to Hamas and Qadafi", referring to former Libyan leader Muammar Qadafi.
