Qatar and the Ikhwan have been getting some flak from US congressional leaders

Qatar and the Ikhwan have been getting some flak from US congressional leaderson Wednesday. The Chair of the US House Committee on Homeland Security Mike McCaul reportedly called the Ikhwan a terrorist group which forms real threats to Egypt as well as the region, according to Egypt Today. “Qatar has relations that could incite violence, chaos and instability in the region, indicating that Qatar has to change its policy towards the Middle East to remain an ally to the US,” said McCaul at a conference entitled “Countering Violent Extremism: Qatar, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood;” held by Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom. Ed Royce, who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee called on the government to fight the extremist ideology of the Ikhwan, saying they exploit democratic institutions to achieve their goals.
