A Saudi media outlet revealed this week that a lieutenant in Qatar’s military commando force reportedly expressed congratulations and pride for an Islamic State fighter from Saudi Arabia over social media.

Al Arabiya found that, in tweets dating August 13, 2013, Jaber al-Mushaab congratulated a Saudi youth, known by the name “Sympatique” on social media, for joining the Islamic State and fighting with them.

“Thank God for bringing you to the most noble place for you to carry out jihad. This is an honor in this world and the hereafter,” Jaber reportedly tweeted.

In another tweet, he reportedly wrote, “I can vouch for your kindness, O Sympatique. It is enough that you are known worldwide as confident in God’s mercy on you, O enemy of Shiites.”

And in another tweet, Jaber reportedly praised the death of one of his family members, Abdel Mohsin bin Hezam Alnadilah Marri, who had fought along the Islamic State.

The tweets were discovered during Al Arabiya’s search into the Twitter accounts of 27 individuals and entities that were listed on a state-issued terror blacklist by Qatar’s interior ministry. According to Al Arabiya, the list “mostly includes Qatari citizens and national entities.”

During their search, they uncovered the tweets from Jaber and noted, “However, the most prominent name that deserved to be looked at, although not included in the list, is that of Jaber al-Mushaab, a lieutenant in Qatar’s military commando force.”

Qatar has been accused of financing terror and harboring terrorists within its country.

Ron Prosor, an Israeli diplomat and head of the Abba Eban Institute for International Diplomacy in IDC Herzliya Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy & Strategy, has called Qatar “the Club Med for Terrorists.”

In an attempt to clean up their image, and “end the isolation imposed on him by the Trump administration for funding terror, the Emir hired a Jewish PR and lobbying group.”
