Billionaire Hamad bin Jassim, a former prime minister of Qatar and owner of the Maybourne Beverly Hills hotel, plans to relocate from London to Bel Air where he owns a mansion.

His potential presence there has triggered compliants about his antisemitic outbursts expressed in his hatred of Israel, and Qaatar’s enabling of terrorism, including the financing of Hamas in Gaza.
In a recent snide remark, Hamad bin Jassim told the Kuwaiti media outlet Al Qabas: “Imagine if oil was sold by Jews…what would be the price of a barrel oil? It would be the most expensive thing in the world.”
Actually, Israel has become a major exporter of natural gas to countries such as Egypt and Jordan as well as proposing a Palestinian involvement in an offshore energy project.
Bear in mind that Qatar is awash in untold billions, mostly generated by their oil profits. This is how Hypocrite bin Jassim accumulated his riches. based on Jassim’s Qatari oil money.
John A. Mirisch, a former mayor of Bel Air, told the Jewish Journal that “Mr. bin Jassim’s statement is vile and yet another manifestation of the virus of Jew-hatred, something we in Beverly Hills, one of the few Jewish-majority cities outside Israel, have always condemned in the strongest of terms.”
Mr. Mirisch is demanding the Bel Air council to pass a resolution condemning any and all expressions of Jew-hatred, as well as any violations of human rights.
It is worth bearing in mind that Qatar was the cauldron in which the 9/11 plot was hatched.
In 2021, nine Syrians filled a lawsuit in London against HBJ and other Qatari individuals, alleging “high-ranking members of the Qatari ruling elite” funneled funds to “actively support and facilitate” al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists in Syria, according to a report in The Times of London.
it can be expected that the plaintiffs will bring their case to Beverly Hills once HbJ moves into town.
