The Biden administration has told Qatar to expel the Hamas’ leaders from its country if the terrorist organization continues to reject a generous deal offered by Israel.

The Washington Post reported that Secretary of State Antony Blinken delivered the message to Qatari Prime Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani last month.

Qatar has advised Hamas’ leaders, including its top leader, Ismail Haniyeh, that they should start thinking about living somewhere else because of mounting U.S. pressure as the group has continually stalled and rejected negotiations.

“We are determined to get a cease-fire that brings the hostages home and to get it now, and the only reason that wouldn’t be achieved is because of Hamas,” Blinken said in Israel this week. “There is a proposal on the table, and as we’ve said: no delays, no excuses. The time is now.”

Israel has signaled that its military operation against the terrorist group inside Gaza will not stop until the group is thoroughly destroyed.

While President Joe Biden has tried to appease the anti-Semites in his party by at times appearing to blame Israel for the hostages being released, he has “grown more impatient with Hamas,” the report said.

There is strong bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress to force the U.S. to reevaluate its relationship with Qatar if it does not apply serious pressure on the terrorist group.


The shift by the Biden administration comes as the U.S. also is moving fighter jets, armed drones, and other military assets out of the U.A.E. and to Qatar to get around restrictions that the U.A.E. placed on the U.S. earlier this year.

The U.A.E. told the U.S. that it had to notify the country of military operations that it was conducting in the region in Iraq and Yemen if operations involved U.S. forces stationed in the U.A.E.

“Restrictions have been imposed on strike missions against targets in Iraq and Yemen,” a U.A.E. official told The Wall Street Journal. “Those restrictions are coming from a place of self-protection.”
