Hamas is feeling the pain of Qatar’s crisis, and looking to Egypt for help

“Five years ago, Gaza’s streets were decked out with maroon-and-white flags to welcome the emir of Qatar, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani. Celebratory songs played on the radio as Hamad made the first visit by a foreign head of state to the Hamas-run enclave and pledged $400 million for building projects — a diplomatic coup for the Palestinian militant group. But in recent weeks, Qatari support has wavered as the tiny Persian Gulf emirate came under political and economic pressure from Arab neighbors to distance itself from Islamist groups in the region. Hamas leaders have been leaving their headquarters in Doha, Qatar’s capital, and continued support for Qatari construction in the Gaza Strip looks uncertain.”
