Chad Joins African nations cutting ties to Qatar for support of Terrorism

by Lt. Gen. Abakar M. Abdallah, Deborah Martin, Jerry Gordon

Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno

The government of Chad issued the following statement cutting diplomatic relations with Qatar. Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno has long been waiting for this moment. Qatar has hosted and supported Chadian Islamist groups who have been recruited to overthrow his democratically elected government. The Chaldian Islamist are also recruited as part of the Rapid Support Force (RSF)/Janjaweed mitias to fight proxy wars for indicted war criminal Sudan President Omar al Bashir. Chad joins Egypt and other African nations condemning Qatar for support of Islamist terror groups like Hamas in Gaza, Al Nusrah, the Al Qaeda Affiliate in Syria, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

 Qatar recently provided the Sudan with upwards of $200 million. These funds were ostensiblyused to provide education for orphans in the Kordofan region. In reality the funds were used for other purposes: (1) to support RSF/Janjaweed militia training camps in the Khartoum and Darfur regions; and, (2) to construct 1,200 villages in North Darfur for the settlement of arriving Janjaweed families.   More than 24,000 RSF/Janjaweed militia forces graduated from the Bashir regime training camps in mid-May 2017 and were immediately deployed to the Darfur region.

 The  RSF/Janjaweed are the basis for an estimated 150,000 Jihadist army that Bashir is recruiting from across the Sahel region of sub SaharaAfrica,and  Middle East terrorist groups  to ethnically cleanse indigenous African people in Sudan’s Darfur, Nuba Mountains, South Kordofan and Blue Nile conflict zones.

 More than 4 million indigenous black African people had been internally displaced to IDP camps in Darfur. More than 700,000 have been killed in Darfur, along with in excess of 2 million killed in the six decade internal jihad operations in the Sudan.

President Bashir’s ultimate objective is to replace these indigenous black African people with Arab settlers from the RSF/Janjaweed forces and international mujahedeen to invade adjacent countries in a planned jihad across the Sahel region imposing a Caliphate ruled from Khartoum under Sharia Islamic law.

Presently, Bashir is joining with Kuwait seeking to assist in resolving the current impasse with Qatar over its support for Islamist terrorism.

Chad News issued this report:

Chad cuts diplomatic ties with Qatar

The Chadian government announced that it had cut off all diplomatic relations with Qatar and accused Doha of sponsoring terrorism in Africa. A statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation: “The Republic of Chad has on all occasions affirmed its strong commitment to defend Africa’s supreme interests and its firm adherence to the principle of respect for the sovereignty of States, non-interference in their affairs and their continued efforts to consolidate security and stability in the continent of Africa and the world.” Their positions have always reflected their firm belief in the need to strengthen cooperation and solidarity among brothers and to confront any threat to security and stability in Africa. “Unfortunately, the State of Qatar has been working to undermine these principles on which the common African action is based.  Its policy in the region has been linked to the support of terrorist organizations, the promotion of extremist ideas and the spread of chaos and instability in many African countries, resulting in great human tragedies in those countries and in Europe and across the world.  It also led to the dismantling of the institutions of sister States and the destruction of their infrastructure. ” Chad cut ties with Doha after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt, Yemen, Mauritania, the Maldives and Mauritius, Republic of Senegal and Republic of Gabon.

Here is a Chadian press statement, translated from the original Arabic:

“The Chadian government calls on all concerned countries to prefer dialogue as a means to resolve this crisis and calls on Qatar to respect its commitments to stop any action that could harm the cohesion of the countries in the region and peace in the world,“a foreign ministry statement said. The announcement came a day after Senegal recalled its envoy.  Gabon condemned Qatar for failing to comply with international agreements on counter-terrorism. Mauritania and the Comoros also decided to cut off diplomatic ties with Qatar on Tuesday, June 6th. These African nations join a group of countries on Monday, June 5th cutting off relations with Qatar including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, the Maldives and Mauritius.
