Don't mind the rhetoric and crocodile tears from MEPs about #Qatar2022 sportswashing. The reality is #EU is systematically overlooking #Qatari human rights abuses, out of self interest.
It has cut itself off from #Russian energy on the basis #Russia is an authoritarian regime fighting an illegal war, only to cosy up to #Qatar, an authoritarian regime involved in an illegal war in #Yemen, all to get access to #Qatari energy.
If there was a #WorldCup for Hypocrisy we would walk away victors without a match being played.
After decades of #US and #European misrule in the #MiddleEast - terrorism, coups, invasions and proxy wars, a legacy of misery, trauma and conflict - the EU washes its hands of it, strokes its chin, and ponders how to bring "stability to the region"? You have got to be joking.
