Qatar will Pay Hamas Salaries

I've Been Thinking:
When it comes to supporting Hamas in Gaza, Qatar has been picking up where many other Arab countries have stopped.
Most of the Arabic world has abandoned Hamas but Qatar has been trying to funnel money and support. Qatar has promised to pay government salaries and inject monies to rebuild water and electricity infrastructure facilities in Gaza.
According to Arabic media sources, the Qatari Ambassador to Palestine, Mohammed al-Ammadi, is scheduled to visit Gaza soon to discuss the proposal.
"The Qatar initiative is moving beyond the humanitarian side this time and is related to fundamental improvements," the sources said.
"Qatar will support projects to improve electricity, water and other things that Ammadi may soon announce."
This is a very bad precedent.
Qatar seems not to care that by sidling up to Hamas they will further alienate themselves in foreign diplomacy.
