Qatar PM slams 'wasteful' Arab League meetings


"Our meetings have become a waste of money and a waste of time," Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem al-Thani told Arab foreign ministers gathered to draw up a response to Israel's attack on Gaza.

"We are meeting today and we will issue a statement. The statement will mean nothing," he said.

"The whole situation needs a clear and honest review... We can't keep giving hope without delivering," Sheikh Hamad said.

He said money pledged to the Palestinians after previous Israeli attacks had failed to reach the Palestinians.

"They received nothing... Gaza needs to receive the money we have already pledged."

"They need housing, schools, hospitals. This is what we should be offering them. We have been used to pledging things and not carrying them through," Sheikh Hamad said.

. . .

"The peace process is not working, the Quartet (the United Nations, United States, European Union and Russia) is not working... We are not declaring war, we want a peaceful process... I'm not talking about war, I know our capabilities... I'm talking about standing by our Palestinian brothers," he said.
