RAFAH, Gaza Strip (Reuters) - The Emir of Qatar entered the Gaza Strip on Tuesday for a visit that broke the isolation of it Islamist rulers, Hamas, but disappointed Israel and mainstream Palestinian leaders in the West Bank.

Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani crossed into Gaza from Egypt at the head of a large delegation on what is billed as a humanitarian visit to inaugurate $250 million worth of reconstruction projects.

It was the first trip by a head of state to Gaza since 1999 and the emir was given a red-carpet welcome by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who declared it a historic day for the enclave, which backs on to the Mediterranean sea.

GAZA, (PIC)-- Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani has arrived in the Gaza Strip along with his wife Sheikha Mozah Al Missned on a landmark visit for one day during which he will lay the foundation stones of vital projects.

The visit is considered the first of its kind made by an Arab head of state to the besieged enclave.

Sheikh Hamad Al Khalifa and his delegation was received by Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya, his ministers, dignitaries, school students and civilians in the Palestinian side of Rafah border area, where a majestic presidential reception was held.

Thousands of Palestinians have lined along the main roads of Gaza since the early morning hours waving Palestinian and Qatari flags and carrying banners welcoming the Qatari emir and his delegation.

"The visit is considered the first of its kind made by an Arab head of state to the besieged enclave".


Is there some reason that arab "heads of state" avoided their "besieged" bretheren for so long? I know they have very BUSY-----I actually visited LAS VEGAS once------It is boring for me ----but it is certainly CHOCK FULL OF EMIRATI "royalty" --------of course they did look very BUSY in those casinos. gee---maybe if gaza could put a few roulette wheels in--------it could have MORE EMIR's show up

It is indeed a welcome development.

Qatar has replaced Syria and Iran as Hamas host so Hamas has changed and moved away from the Iranian terrorist network back to the Sunni Muslim brotherhood mainstream which can put pressure on Hamas to moderate its ultra extremist stance and crack down on the rocket shooters which it is already doing.

it helped the Israelis kill the 2 Al Qa'ida types yesterday..

Qatar has easy connection to the west, to Israel and can mediate and finance Gaza's development eg the undersea gas Gaza has.

Hamas is "coming in from the cold"......in short

i think the west and Israel will be forced to deal with Hamas differently now; they always could have done but chose to ravage Gaza instead in cast lead.

Cast Lead was a justified action. response to Hamas' war crimes.

Who are you joking? You blockaded Gaza from air and sea. And you broke the ceasefire. Don't lie.

Israel is comptlely objected to any country or leader supporting the Palestinians. They want them to be completely isolated. That's not peace. That's cruel.

IRosie I have forcefully and loudly proclaimed many times my detestation of all violence by anyone.

And I detest Hamas but still try and understand what they are and are not.

But the smashed baby brain count on both sides will be far more pal babies than jewish babies brains blown to shreds.............far more.

About 10 pal baby brain eyes for one jewish baby eye, probably.

Do you think the babes feel different if their brains are blown away by legal state IDF bullets or choppers than pal nails????

Are all babes not equal in your maternal eyes?

Hamas violence is no different to the ghastly Jewish terrorist Irgun or Stern gang pre 1948 except that they blow themselves up as well as their civilian victims.

Hamas is NOT Al Qa'ida.

they are a disciplined political movement that Israel can and does do deals with all the time, just like the Stern Gang whose leader became Prime Minister of Israel (Shamir), and Begin too.

Now the former terrorists are called the Likud..

Israel could perfectly well have avoided cast lead. It was the one who broke the year old truce in 2008, deliberately.

There are moderates and extremists in Hamas, fighting each other all the time.

And Israel assassinates the moderates, first Abdul Rantisi then the wheelchair bound Sheikh Yasin.

Even I say Israel has a right to kill the extremists in the act of terror.

But that is NOT what it does.....it ups the ante every time a truce is called to keep the pot of terror boiling so it can cast some more lead and white phosphorus on schools and hospitals like the one the Emir is building.

Lets just hope not, this time.

I should add, the former Jewish Terrorists Irgun and Stern Gang, now the Likud are now not only the Government of israel and certain to win the next erection there

But they also control the Congress of the USA and the Republican Party, and have a veto over the USA government which has become an Israel firster Government against its own real interests.

Even Rahm Imanuel, Obama's one time chief of staff now night mayor of Chicago is a Likudnik.! George W Bush's boys were all Likud types, unlike his dad's.

Who would use nail bombs when the pentagon as well as the IDF is yours to command??
