Qatar’s Ex-PM accuses West of racism & Islamophobia over claims bribery landed Oil Sheiks 2022 World Cup

Claims that Qatar paid bribes to win the hosting rights of the 2022 World Cup are ‘not fair’ and stem from the West’s Islamophobia and racism towards Arabs, the former prime minister of Qatar has claimed.

Appearing yesterday on Fox News, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani, who governed from 2003 to 2007, offered the rebuttal when asked about the latest scandal currently engulfing FIFA.

He blamed media for the accusations of corruption during his country’s World Cup bid, which he claimed came after Qatar won the hosting rights for the 2022 tournament in a ‘fair competition’.

    But does anyone really care? So what if they paid billions to host some games, build a refrigerated dome over the whole country and so on? Who gives a shit?
