London Centre For Public Affairs (LCPA) has been observing the UAE anti Qatar conference in the past few weeks. Our information, evidence and arguments have made clear today. Our statements said earlier that this conference is run by Zionist and Pro Israeli lobbyist in the US and the UK. The Conference speakers is the crystal clear evidence of our previous argument.
No speakers from the UK parliament, except 3 conservative, pro Israeli politicians. Meanwhile, the main speakers were paid and brought from the US. The names are all pro Israeli. Some of them are Israeli nationals, others have worked for Israel and others are lobbyists and apologists for it. One could call this Conference , (UAE-AIPAC) Conference.
Ironically, no Qatari opposition or nationals appeared to be speaking. LCPA reporters who attend the event said the number of audience as little as few dozens.
Some of the speakers are anti Muslims and run transatlantic organisations with Islamophobic agenda.
